What gets a restaurant to the top of your list? If you rate simple local charm and consistently great food then this place is tops. I have been coming here for years to reconfirm that it still provides the best mixed grill in London. I don't know how they do it. The starters and veg dishes are also very tasty.... More

6 of us had a relaxed Christmas lunch at Zara yesterday and couldn't have been treated better. Half portions were offered to share for those with smaller appetites, a dessert was offered on the house and a replacement swiftly brought for a falafel which one of us dropped on the floor! Good food and excellent atmosphere. We left an extra... More

Just over the road from Hampstead Heath station is Zara's it is small in size but serves up really excellent tasty food at modest prices. I had a plate of delicious humus with their fine fresh warm bread, and my friends shared a rather yummy plate of Ispanak salata a mix of spinach yoghurt and olive oil. My chicken shish... More

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
