Have been going to Zaras for our family's Turkish cuisine fix for nearly 20 years. The food is always fresh and made exactly how we like it. The 2am kebabs always hit the spot and the staff are always friendly and accommodating.

We had a get together with dear friends tonight. I have to say this is the worst food I have ever had in Melbourne. Firstly the toilets were discusting and no toilet paper. Things went down hill from there. Service, average. The Banquet we ordered was so expensive. Dips were lovely and so was the bread. Between 7 of us... More

Some of the food choices on the menu are better than others. The cold mezze was a disappointment (usual dips, but cold potato salad and butter beans with onion not so good. Also not enough bread, and cold); the hot mezze, better (calamari and garlic sauce very good, as were the minced lamb and Turkish sausage). Main courses are limited... More

Enjoyed a function of 23 people at this restaurant to celebrate a birthday. Food was good, entertainment was good, service could have been better, or more staff as you had to look for them to ask for more drinks etc, decor was good, seating a bit squashed in, and the music was too loud for us anyway, but an enjoyable...

Went with a group a couple of weeks ago and was a bit disappointed with the variety that came out. Everything was very basic. Granted however the food that came out was done well. There is plenty of room and the staff are more than happy to accommodate BYO!

We attended a function here this evening and being that we had such a terrible evening had to comment straight away. Upon arrival we were greeted with staff who were still setting up for function and then were unable to assist. Trolley full of cheap cola was wheeled through venue and then served and the wait staff wondered why we... More

I've worked a Turkish restaurant for approximately 3.5 years and I'm of middle eastern background and have not eaten anywhere as worse as Zara. Value f or money IS A BIG zero from me. Man be generous, God hates stinginess.

I have been eating at Zara for over 5 years and have been mostly satisfied with the food. The owner is exceptionally hard working and has always welcomed me into his restaurant. Best turkish food in Melbourne.
