All reviews turkish coffee gyro baklava loaded fries rice salad lamb bread lebanese food grape leaves treated like family freshest ingredients wonderful food an appetizer mouth watering items on the menu downtown utica
Best. Food. In. Utica. The gyros are amazing, the gyro BOWL is to die for, the shawarma plate is mouth watering and the homemade tzatziki sauce is incredible. The owners are so friendly and welcoming and I just can’t get enough of this place. They...have the freshest ingredients and feed you so much food for so little money. It is truly Utica’s food gem. I’ve been going here for years and it has consistently been outstanding.More
We have been coming here for almost three years now and I can honestly say we have never had a bad meal. We are treated like family every time we stop in (if you are offered Turkish coffee try it!). The hummus is delish and...the baba ghanush (I know it is spelt incorrectly) but it is heaven. The chicken shawarma gyro is amazing! You will never be disappointed when you go.More
We stopped here in the midst of a long drive, and we're not in the least disappointed! We were treated by the staff like family, and the service was top notch. The entire family of hosts came and checked in with us. The environment was...safe and socially distant, and the staff were all masked and excercised extreme caution. Most importantly, the meal was delicious, very filling and substantial, and very authentic. The portions are hearty, and very tasty. The Kefta Gyro and falafel we had were out of this world, and the loaded Lebanese fries were a total treat. During our meal, the owner brought us out some very flavorful home brewed Lebanese coffee, and on our way out, his wife gave our kids some amazing homemade baklava which was amazingly flaky and delicious, and had a subtle hint of rose flavoring.
The family that runs Zeina's are amazing people, and amazing cooks. We were fortunate to chance in on it in the midst of our long road trip.More
after coming across rave reviews, went for a lunch this Saturday afternoon and found Zeina's welcoming, comfortable, busy and DELICIOUS. very well done lamb on fresh salad and rice with great sauces. absolutely love Lebanese/Syrian cooking and Zeina's, unpretentiously, provides some of the BEST I...have had in a friendly, chatty and unpretentious setting.More
Friendly, quick service and tasty authentic food.
Reasonably priced. Lots of vegetarian options too.
We enjoyed being able to pick out items what we wanted on an appetizer platter. (My only mistake was not noticing that the grape leaves have meat in them.)
The three...of us all enjoyed our food, and two of us took doggie bags, as the portions are nice sized.
Loved that the owner came around with complimentary samples of Turkish coffee.
Its only a few minutes drive from the Munson Art Museum and very close to 1-90.
Some outdoor seating as well.More
