I ordered the shrimp curry with Greek salad. While the overall portion was great, I would have liked a bit more salad (perhaps in a separate bowl) especially since it was an additional $4 to upgrade. I also would have appreciated it to be a spicier but that’s just me. It was still delicious and unique! The server (Kim) was friendly and attentive. I was celebrating my birthday and often establishments make it special by providing a dessert or something small on the house. This wasn’t the case and it was disappointing. That being said, my overall experience was great and I would return again.

Zaras comes across as a fine dining experience on the outside, but from the moment you first speak with any employee (who I assume are actually the owners) you're instantly feel like a family member. They're very kind and personable making for a delightful dining experience.

We've picked up food to eat at home and we've eaten in the restaurant. It had been a few months since we had ordered from here and our dinner last week reminded me that I really like the food. The baba ganoush is excellent (the only place I ever have it). I tried the Mediterranean wrap with chicken and it was excellent and a huge portion. We ended up sharing this and a salad, we saved the mixed grill for one and the 2 of us shared it for lunch the next day. Large portions, reasonable prices, good food.

The food is actually pretty good... The last time I went to this restaurant was a couple of weeks ago. Their prices had gone up five dollars right around the board. Not only that, but they charge you two dollars for water. The meal that they charge $25 for is not worth it. And then? You add $2 for the water plus tip plus tax is waaaayyyy too expensive for what you get. I thought it was against restaurant policy rules to not serve water with someone's meal. What happens if you choke? The waitress asks you if you would prefer bottled water or carbonated for the price of two dollars each. And when I said just water she replied I will get you tap water. Making you feel bad that I am not ordering a drink. I mentioned to the waitress that she should mention to the owner that the customers are not happy with this. Her reply it was... I just work here. When I left I said see you never again...
