“Best arabian cuisines”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2013

Best place for lunch or dinner. They have the best shavaya chicken and kubbus in town. Also try out their desserts like Choco chip ice cream.

“No place is any better.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2013

Best place you can be to for lunch or dinner,when you are out in the streets of Kerala's capital city---Thiruvananthapuram/Trivandrum.The food here is amazing and they have a variety of delicacies to offer.The place is a bit to crowded the the service is well managed and everything is on time.This place is renowned for its chicken dishes---no other place in the state is any better.

Getting here:Easy, as it is next to the MLA quarters, get down here and look for a brimming carlot,thats the restaurant car park.....and right behind it is ZAM ZAM!!!

“best restaurant for chicken dishes”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013

I can say, in my experience, this is the best restaurant in Trivandrum for chicken dishes. The place is always busy and you need to wait for at least 10 to 15 min, but the system is well organized that they take the order while ur waiting and by the time you get the table, your food will be ready. We particularly liked chicken kolhapuri with rumali roti. They got a good variety of ice creams and sundaes. a bit crowded though, not for romantic dinners, but for a quick and tasty bite. Definitely recommend it. Only chicken and mutton, no sea food available.

“Perfect place for Shavaya/Grilled chicken”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2013

If you are someone who loves Arabic food like grilled chicken, shawarma, think no further. Zam zam is one of the best restaurants in trivandrum offering this. Parking may be a bit difficult here and the area tends to get quite crowded by evening time (as 4-5 restaurants are situtated closely). Do ask for extra mayonaise if you are someone who likes to relish the juicy grilled chicken dipped in mayo and kubbus as the mayo they give will be quite less. A full chicken will cost around 280-300 now. (cause of price rise in poultry). Zam Zam mini is a branch of theirs in Nanthancode area where we are offered budget dishes in affordable rates (like 1/4 and 1/2 of dishes). Its mostly popular for take-away dishes. They claim to use halal chicken and also to avoid ajinomoto too.
