“Saved the night.”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

Visited zest after leaving a nearby premises due to the terrible service and attitude. Loved it. great food, good service no fuss. Good value, £10 2 courses or £14 3 courses. Had veggie mezze very tasty. Followed by Irish cream and maltesers cheese cake. Good choice food, specials board. Nice easy relaxed atmosphere.

“I like this place!”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

I have been here many times before and went again this week with friends, late on Sunday afternoon. Once again the food and value was very good but the service was a bit of a let down. I know it was late Sunday afternnon and I dont doubt that they had been busy, but it felt like the waitress that served us had no energy left!
I still like this place though!

“Friendly service and great food”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

We were a party of 18 for my friend, Phil's 60th birthday and had a very enjoyable evening. The staff were very friendly and enjoyed the 'surprise' element of the evening, bringing out the birthday cake etc. The food was excellent, and as authentic as one could manage in this country. The Zest Mezze is delicious, with a great selection of Turkish 'tastes' - and a good portion. Lovely selection of vegetarian dishes. Pleasant, intimate atmosphere - except when a loud party like ours was in! I must say though, the other diners were very friendly and joined in the atmosphere. I will certainly visit again and recommend Zest to friends.

“Really nice restaurant with sensible prices”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

Despite the competing attractions of other restaurants on the Gloucester Road when I visit my son we always eat there. The food is interesting and keenly priced. There are a series of veggie options which is rare and my son appears to enjoy the carnivorous food. Service is quiet polite and attentive. Prices good.

“Fantastic value for money.”
Reviewed April 9, 2013 via mobile

We visited Zest on a Mon night. We had one of the deals, two courses for a tenner which turned out to be an absolute bargain.The food was fresh, presented well, very tasty and good portions! We had calamari staters, confit duck and a mezze platter. There menu has a good selection, and look out for the beautiful Turkish coffee cups. The waitress was friendly and helpful. The toilets spotless. The previous time in 2012 it was just as lovely. The atmosphere is casual, but the quality and quantity of food surprisingly high for this modest eatery. You won't be disappointed.
