This is one of my favorite restaurants in Richmond. The food is always good. Their marinara sauce is excellent and their grilled chicken salad is the best! They are always accommodating to our large church crowd when I call. The hot rolls are WONDERFUL! The wait staff is always very nice.

Hidden in a strip mall (behind an Arby's) on the Richmond outskirts, Zorba's was a very pleasant surprise. We found it by happenstance, grabbing one of those tourist-friendly pocket menu cards as we walked out of our hotel down the road, and it was quite good. A nice size garden salad accompanies your entree. the chicken shish kebab, a greek restaurant staple, had 3 huge skewers of chicken, green peppers, mushrooms & onions on a bed of rice - the chicken was hot (a pet peeve when the food comes out cold), tender, moist and nicely marinated. The 'Sweet Salmon' with red pepper sauce (a little heavy on the sauce) and grilled zucchini (ditto on the oil, but I'm being picky) was equally tender and flavorful. All the food had a homemade taste, and a welcome change from the proliferation of fast food/chain restaurants like Applebee's, etc. that appear in every shopping strip & mall in every suburb. Definitely worth the search.

I know it's a little late since they re-opened awhile ago. But, Zorba's is still the a great choice for a business lunch or dinner with the family. The pasta a la Greek and the rolls are a great carry out meal. We are glad you are back.

I have been coming here since I was a teenager....A LONG TIME !! Most restaurants do not make it a year! Now my point. People here complain it is not Authentic Greek Food....It is Greek/Italian food. HELLO! The food here is top notch! The people who serve are as nice as can be! So for those who WINE to much ;-). DON'T GO BACK !!! I will be glad to take your seat at night when the line is stretched down the street to get in ;-) GO ENJOY !!! :-)

It's been a couple of years since we ate here. Was the best calamari we'd had since Greece. We were anxious to eat here again when we came to town. Upgraded and nice since the fire. W ordered our Greek salad and Calamari (with extra tentacles) and were told they were all the round ones now. What a disappointment. They weren't like the fresh ones we'd had before. We also got smelts which were great. Service Was great, local beer (legends) excellent. Not a bad place, but not the best anymore.
