Food and service was excellent, from the moment we walked in nothing was too much for staff, the food was hot when it arrived, there was so much food we asked for a doggy bag, I would definitely recommend Zest.

Hi Asrar All the meat is Halal except for the sirloin and ribeye steak, we don't use any animal fats in the cooking process. Non of the dishes contain any alcohol but the restaurant is licensed. I hope this helps.
