This end of Santa Cruz is very expensive, and so I feel their pain when trying to provide a quality dining experience. I do not ever remember seeing the same college student waitress more than once, but they do their best. Food and beer list is only a suggestion, as they never have everything on the menu, but that is... More

The food at Zameen is very good. I regularly get the chicken saffron either as a roll-up or as a dinner. I get it without tomatoes because I am allergic. The food is fresh and portions are not cheap. Chicken fresh and tender. Walnut sauce very good. Cardamon ice cream wonderful. This is not a Michelin 3 star or 4... More

We love Zameen! Their salads, wraps, and main dishes are all very flavorful. The pizzas are wonderful with terrific middle eastern flavors, especially like the veggie pizza! You can create your own salad combination with one of their salads and add the protein of your choice. All in all a great experience!

Zameen's is a fantastic local place with plenty of outdoor and indoor seating. Sometimes you order at your table, others you order from the counter and the food is brought to you. Saffron Chicken is a favorite, as are the sweet potato fries. Parking is shared in a strip mall type location, but is adequate.

There are plenty of positive on-site reviews here and deservedly so. We wanted to assure you that Zameen will prepare most (maybe all) menu items those who want to go to the nearby beach or have lunch or dinner at home (or in a motel if you are a traveler). We had gyros sandwiches, several orders of cool, tasty dolmas,... More

This has great indoor and outdoor dining, is always priced right, and has some excellent daily specials. I recommend one of their wraps.

My wife and I came here after a day at Manresa Beach. In a strip mall with easy parking, some outdoor dining but nicely appointed and good atmosphere inside. Very reasonable prices. I had the falafel platter with lemon chicken soup; the soup needed something but the falafels were great. Well balanced: just enough crisp on the outside and soft... More
