I had really high expectation of this place but sadly it's a bit of a letdown. The food was not bad, but quite forgettable, and the portion was small, it's not an expensive restaurant but compared to the quality and quantity, I can get much better food for a much cheaper price anywhere else.

I spend a month in the Hampstead Heath area every fall, and had often walked by this restaurant, but had never stopped until the other night when I wanted a tasty meal in the local area. I was not disappointed. It was early and Zara's was not at all busy, so it was easy to get a good table and... More

We visited this restaurant after an exhausting walk over Hampstead Heath on a hot day & were attracted by its pleasant appearance. It was our first visit to a Turkish restaurant & we really enjoyed the delicious food. The atmosphere was pleasant & the staff friendly. The Turkish Rose wine was nice & refreshing on a hot afternoon. Would be... More

There's lots of competition surrounding this Turkish eatery but it more than holds it own. Veggies will be pleased with the special vegetarian menu--the Mousaka was excellent and led to scrapped plates. Don't miss the wonderful Apricot drink which is blissful. This place readily accepts people with disability and had no problems accommodating a large, motorised wheel chair--and no step... More

Booked at short notice and although full we were accommodated straight away - the menu is really varied and average pricing for the location ; Very attentive service and the flavours and presentation of the dishes was excellent - a really good find right opposite Hampstead Heath station would highly recommend. Only slightly negative comment was that the Calamari meze... More

Good enough set lunch which is a little boring but adequate as its convenient. Would be a good idea to vary it. Normal menu is expensive for what it is

4 adults and a 5 year old for Sunday dinner. The restaurant was busy and is popular both with local residents and people visiting Hampstead Heath and the neighbouring Royal Free Hospital. Lots of good transport links - main bus terminus, and Hampstead Heath Overground, and Belsize Park Tube. The ambience is very pleasant - good lighting with very attractive... More

After a lovely long walk on Hamstead Heath we came across this restaurant while looking for somewhere to have dinner. The food was good, especially the aubergine starter and the prawn main course. We also had Turkish wine for the first time and enjoyed the shiraz. Would recommend eating here if you are in the area.

We stumbled off the Heath at lunchtime, and having never been to this end of Hampstead chose Zara purely for it's menu and inviting and relaxed appeal. Unfortunately not everything on the menu was available so I did end up having a staple favourite Musakka which did not disappoint. My partner had a very generous slow cooked lamb dish Kuzu... More
