    Food was great and really liked that they had non alcoholic drinks that were decently priced and tasted great! Surprisingly hard to find sometimes.

    Food had big, bold flavors. We had fish and potato dumplings, lamb shank, lamb pilau (rice), and fish curry. Textures were odd: fish and potato interior to dumplings was mushy, but otherwise great flavor. Lamb shank on turnip puree also was a strange textural combination which resulted in slow-cooked, tender lamb on mushy vegetable puree. The pickled veg was a great addition, though, which lent the plate acid and crunch. Finally, the lamb shank and fish curry were a bad combination of flavors on the palate. Each dish alone was excellent, though.

    It was a pleasant surprise in all aspects. The decor is well done with Afghan motifs. I love the vests the servers wear, so colourful and cultural. The Belgian beer made specially for them was delicious and very cold and the cocktails colourful and tasty. The food was so tasty and you can taste the exotic spices in them. The dumplings were cook well, not overcooked or tough and the fillings was tasty. Lastly, our server, Gina, was so attentive and informative. Our first time but not our last. Great food, service and ambiance.

    We ordered the aghani rice and lamb shoulder. At the end, the waitress asked what was the occasion. I said it was for anniversary and she brought a dessert for us. It truly made our day because my date wasn't feeling well and she was really happy with the desert. Thank you Zarak!!

    The service is top notch! Our server Sophia is amazing and she made the experience so much more enjoyable with her friendly and kind personality. She made great suggestions for food too. The cocktails - delicious and especially creative ! Also the sponge cake soaked in condensed milk TO DIE FOR! I wanted to order a second for takeout. Love Zarak. I come here first special occasions. Never disappoints
