    The food was delicious! The fish curry we got was overly salty but our server took care of us and offered us another dish instead.

    Very overpriced for the portions served. We went for the afternoon happy hour. The server offered us the dinner menu. He only brought in the happy hour menu onced we asked about it. We had the chicken thigh kebab. The kebab was decent, nothing out of ordinary. A tad bit expensive at 32$ for just one skewer of average chicken kebab. We also got the Uzbeki pulav. The lamb was rather dry. I don’t mind paying more but the food or ambience was definitely not worth it.

    Every time we dine at Zarak we have a fantastic time and enjoy the food. We enjoyed a wonderful brunch with our family on the occasion of my mother’s birthday and everything was perfect. Thanks for taking such good care of us once again. Hope to be back real soon.

    Good food and service. We sat at the bar and was comfortable. I didn't like that my bf's brunch came out before mine so he was half done by the time mine came out. He had the chickpea and avo toast but he said the second one was mush by the time he got to it from all the oil under the avo and toppings. I also don't like that once you book you can't even amend the time of your reso, because of their 24 hr cancelation policy it won't give you access. I phoned and no answer and their msg said to text the restaurants phone number which I did but no one ever responded! I might try their dinner in the future. I like the food it's different and interesting but I also enjoying eating together.

    We hosted a large party at Zarak and everything was exceptional. The server and staff were incredibly accommodating, the food was delicious and beautifully presented, and the ambiance was perfect for our celebration. Highly recommend.
