“Loved it...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

Good simple Mediterranean food.
All the expected staples of Middle Eastern cuisine cooked very well.
I only wish I could order at the table, not counter.

“Interesting food in beautiful space”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

The menu is middle eastern/mediterranean with some very original items such as curried chicken with almonds and chickpeas, spiced fig bread pudding, and orange, cardamom & walnut cake. Their fresh homemade hummus is excellent. The interior is a surprise and really very lovely, with an antique silver pressed tin ceiling and walls painted in warm colors. The staff were friendly and attentive. Prices extremely reasonable.

“A very pleasant surprise !!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

A very pleasant surprise for our lunch stop on the 11th and a yum. A well thought out menu and reasonably priced. I had the squid salad special and a cup of the beef/lamb chili…both big hits. My wife had the fresh mozzarella pita and she enjoyed it too! Do stop in for healthy selections with a Mediterranean slant to the menu.

“Portsmouth needed this restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

If you love Middle Eastern/Mediterranean cuisine, you will be in heaven at Zahtar. Everything we ordered was fresh, delicious and prices are very reasonable. If you like spicy foods try the new falafel bites which go perfectly with the yogurt dipping sauce. The chickpea fries come with the same sauce and are incredible. Salads and wraps are generous and allow you to choose from a wide selection of ingredients to compose a custom dish. Bring your own beer or wine and you've got the makings for a wonderful dinner that (unlike most Portsmouth restaurants) won't break the bank.
