This storefront restaurant is very straightforward and inviting. Great service combined with authentic Mediterranean cuisine makes it a top choice. The stuffed grape leaves appetizer was exceptional, simply served on a lettuce bed with some onion slices. Our Gyros plate (me) and sandwich (my wife) were generous with rice on the platter and both with a salad with feta cheese.... More

Food is so fresh and satisfying. The grape leaf appetizer is wonderful. The chicken shawarma is fantastic. Be sure to try the fries. Wow. So good. So yummy.

The food is amazing. I've had things here I will not eat elsewhere. The service is also very good. The crowd is a little strange at times but it makes it great for people watching. Seems to be popular with the older artistic crowd.

It's been a while since I've been to the Dirty T and I was delighted to find this place on Speedway. Great, authentic Mediterranean food with lots of options for vegetarians. Start with the Zayna fries (get the hot sauce!!!) for sure. The falafel was nice and fresh. Another person in our party enjoyed the Mediterranean plate, which was more... More

Amazing food, We read about Zayna's in a local publication and decided to check the place out our selves. So glad we did. The food was amazing. I just wanted to keep eating. Portion sizes are appropriate, price is extremely reasonable and the food quality is high. Taste is out of this world. Zayna's has made our top three list.... More

Everything on the menu is great. If you like Mediterranean food this is the spot to go. Parking is horrid but if you can find space I would highly recommend it. Prices are pretty reasonable as well. I always walk out happy and full.

This place is a hidden gem. The outside is physically unappealing and I wouldn't consider going to the area if I am looking to eat out but I came across the restaurant by accident and I can say it is a happy accident. Once you walk in the decor is beautiful. I had the grill sampler (lamb) and it is... More
