We ordered an appetizer and 2 main courses. When the food came, we realized there was no way we could come close to eating it all. So we took home the leftovers and enjoyed it in the park for lunch the next day. The food itself was among the best we had in the UK. Service was excellent and the... More

Every time I go, I regret it. Lived in the area for years and used to hold Abu Zaad in high regard. It's not worth it anymore. Though eating in is still decent enough, the take-away aspect of the restaurant is poor. It's just the basics that let them down time and time again which is what's most frustrating. From... More

This is fast becoming our Friday night takeaway. The food is delicious, the staff are always welcoming and the chilli sauce is great. The bread however can sometimes be stale - if ordering for a takeaway ask for a fresh bag,

Visited this restaurant along my wife and daughter. We ordered manakish and chicken tajeen. The manakish were made of pita bread and zaatar and the taste was terrible. The chicken tajeen came with no olives, plumbs, and the chicken was dry. I think the waiter noticed that we did not like the food, so he avoided our table. I do... More

3 of us had dinner at Abu Zaad in mid-April and thoroughly enjoyed it. Two of us had eaten there in the midst of Ramadan some time ago and despite how busy they were with other diners breaking their fast, and our lack of knowledge about Damascene food, they were courteous and helpful. The service this time was every bit... More

The food at Abu Zaad is consistently good; the service can be patchy sometimes leaning towards unfriendly, but the food is always good. They don't serve alcohol so be aware.
