Really do not know where to begin...the service was lacking...saw our waitress twice during the course of our meal. Instead of attending to tables, she was talking to bar customers and the manager(?)...by the way the restaurant was pretty empty maybe 3 to 4 other tables. The chicken biryani would have been ok if there had been a little more... More

A good friend of mine wanted Lebanese for his birthday dinner, so I did some research and off we went to Zooroona in Kalamazoo. The restaurant has a great vibe - vibrant decorations, a fun atmosphere, good lighting. My food was great. I got the Chili Fry with beef and the Spicy Moroccan soup. The Chili Fry had superb depth...

Zooroona is a surprisingly great restaurant that I have ignored for years because, although it is less than 1/2 mile from my house, it is located in the same shopping mall as my all-time favorite restaurant, Saffron. Zooroona is Middle Eastern and inexpensive. For $9 you can get a mixed meat schwarma with both rice and another side (I particularly... More

My husband and I eat here at least once a month because we crave the deliciousness that can only be experienced here. We love sitting behind the curtained table... Just make sure to wear socks because you must take your shoes off to sit there. The food, ambiance, and romance comes in droves at this restaurant. We highly recommend it!

Since we were five, the easy option was the chef's choice - a variety of eight small plates. To be sure we wouldn't go hungry we supplemented with a vegetarian couscous tagine. No standouts, but all solid renditions. Limited beer on tap but some interesting import options.

We stopped for lunch and ate outside. The waitress was friendly and helpful. The food took a while and we had appetizers and salad, but it was yummy. All food was fresh, hot/cold, and tasty. Would definitely go back again. Pretty large menu with many good selections. Large drink menu too!

My husband and I stopped in for lunch. Their was one small group in a seated behind curtain section us and one more table of two. The waitress was extremely neglectful when the other smaller group left we waited well over 30 min. after ordering and all attention was on the group behind the curtain. I ordered a Zooroona Wrap...

I found the food to be good, although maybe not the best I've had. We shared a hummus "side" which at $3 was enough for a small appetizer for two. Salads were delicious and fresh. The entrees (around $11-19) came with rice and a garnish of onion and green pepper. The food was cooked well and the menu boasted a... More

We went to Zooroona for dinner the evening before St. Valentine's and were pleasantly surprised with the food... which is just as well because the decoration and the service could easily be improved! The dining room is a good size but is decorated with pretend Arabian curtains looking shabby and past their due date! The pictures of desert scenes are... More

It isn't very fancy, but quaint. The food was very good and included many unusual tastes. The prices were very fair. You must try it at least once. I'd go back if I was in the area.
