Save the air fare but not the taste!

Had the best middle eastern food outside of Israel here in Minneapolis at the Zakia Deli. The meatballs, gyro meat, falafel was the best I've had here in the states! The salads including the hummus was outstanding as well. Tried about twelve or thirteen different things and loved every one of... read more

Tucked away in a commercial area, you have to know where Zakia Deli is located or you wouldn't just happen by. But its worth a special trip. Although the place is small, it's packed with salads and sandwiches that any vegetarian would love. . The mjadra is my favorite! Lentils, rice and spices with the Lebanese salad of tomato, onion...

We received a Groupon as a gift to Zakia Deli and dined here today. The coupon was good for two daily plates and two sodas. We tried different items. All were prepared perfectly, but our pallets did not necessarily agree with the taste profile. The reason we give Zakia Deli a four star rating is because when we return the... More

Zakia Deli is tiny, but they are big on flavorful food. The basics are Greek in origin--but Greek unlike any I've had, with big chunks of garlic present in nearly every entree or side dish. Fish out those hunks o' garlic, though, and you'll get delicious food for a ridiculously reasonable price. Last Friday, my husband and I had lunch... More

I take home food from Zakia whenever I am in the area. I love the people whom work there, and the food is lovingly prepared. Hard workers. Beautiful food. From sandwiches to entrees, I am happy every time.

I have added the last and final star to this place just because every time I go there, no matter what I have, it's just tastes great! They could use some more space though. At lunch time the place can get crowded and the line of people goes virtually across the dining area... Note for Israelis and Israeli food lovers:... More

This gem is out of the way, and is tucked away in an industrial neighborhood. They server primarily the lunch crowd from the surrounding businesses. I wish I worked nearby! The food is authentic Lebanese cuisine and is delicious. I bought extra kibbe to bring home to enjoy the next day. The hummus is good and the stuffed cabbage was... More

Working in the area today I went in for lunch. It was packed but the woman who helped me took the time to answer my questions and explain some of the veg choices. I had the lubnay sandwich stuffed with lebanese salad. It was perfect, satisfying, fresh. Yum! I wanted to try everything!

Dave and his staff deliver great food. I like the chicken chili, the Dolmas and the Gyros. You cannot go wrong at Zakia.

Good fresh food at very reasonable prices. Very good place for lunchtime with nice outdoor seating when weather permits. Gyro was very good. The reason I did ranked them 4 instead of 5 is that I thought they could use a better bread for the Gyro. The flat bread they use is not the greatest...
