Great place to chill with friends. We sat at the bar counter where the service was top class. Cheese garlic bread & Red snapper with cilantro that we ordered were really good. The music however was a bit too loud for my liking. The restaurant has one big hall with rows of tables arranged not very tastefully. Not my cup... More

This place had been on my list way too long. I made sure I went here, on my trip to Chennai last month, no matter what. My husband ordered the pork chops and I tried their combo meal which I thought was a really good deal. They serve up a soup/salad, cocktail/mocktail, a starter, main and dessert, all for a... More

If you're looking for great ambience, a bustling place and good drinks, then this is the place. An afternoon with friends, some great cocktails and tapas . Really enjoyed the food and the drinks too. Unlike the dark and dingy bars you normally find. Highly recommended

This was my second visit and this time it was for the week end brunch. It was an amazing experience indeed. The staff were attentive and friendly and efficient with the non vegetarian selection on offer. My vegetarian colleague however had to wait for her choice of food. Both the range served were very well presented and delightful to taste.... More

I have been to this place a lot of times and even celebrated my 21st birthday there. i cant think of any place better than zaras for a chilled out evening. food is good, cocktails are amazing and incredible music in the evenings. although this is not a place for someone looking for a quiet evening with friends.
