Better known for its evening crowd, Zara is the ultimate destination for tapas in Chennai. The weekday lunches are excellent VFM meals. The menu is well planned and the quality of food is consistently superb!! The ambiance is one of under-stated elegance and the service courteous and efficient.

I went on a Saturday night with my wife. The place was very crowded - reservation may be necessary for Fridays and Saturdays. Food was delicious - portion could be larger. Drinks menu was elaborate and cocktails were fantastic. Loud and nice music. Expensive but a wonderful experience.

First, make a reservation or else you may not get a place to sit. After going to 10D and drinking in certain joints on the OMR, the drinks menu and the music menu in Zaras (Tapas) is very refreshing. Highly recommended!

We went on a Friday night for dinner. The place was pretty empty when we got there at 19:30 but by the time we left it was packed. I recommend reservations. The food was very good and since we were in a group we tried a lot of dishes. We also loved the sangria! We didn't try any other drinks... More

I had heard about this place and we went for a birthday occasion. I can honestly say it didn't live upto my expectations. The evening we went there, there was no dancing and the music was quite low. The cocktails are very well done and the waiter is eager to recommend some drinks to you. He makes sure we are... More
