Great good with full of flavour. Ambience is really good. Owner cares a lot about the customers and made sure that everything is fine. We did not consume homemade lemonade as it was too sweet for us. Owner asked us for the feedback and offered us another one but we were getting late for an appointment. He then offered a free coffeee for our next visit. I must say that he loves his restaurant and cares about the customer experience. 5 stars for the hospitality. Would definitely go back.
Really great food. There were 4 of us and being a Sat night banquets were only on offer, so 2 had the meat one and 2 had seafood. Worked brilliantly. There was even a belly dancer! Great night and byo made it even better
Zikrayat is an excellent Lebanese restaurant. The menu is quite extensive, and offers traditional dishes like stuffed vine leaves and felafel, as well as tasty new dishes like tahini fish, and beetroot, haloumi and hommus salad. It was our second time there, and we loved trying diffent dishes, all of them tasty and fresh.
This restaurant is one out of the box. It utilises a really imaginative use of herbs and spices. There are an above average number of vegetarian and vegan dishes.
Enjoyed a delicious lunch with my wife at Zikrayat for our first visit. Great food with friendly and helpful service. Particularly loved the Babaganoush dip, lamb cigars and lamb pieces on hommus. Even though it was very quiet on a Tuesday lunchtime we could imagine it with a great atmosphere. Will definitely return.
First time at Zikrayat. Really enjoyed it. The food was tasty and the service was really friendly. The belly dancer added to the experience. I will definitely return as I'd like to try more menu items.
The food was AMAZING. We were also made to feel very welcome, the ambience was very homely and inviting. We'll definitely be recommending this place. Great experience!
Food was delicious , staff was lovely, and we really enjoyed the beautiful and amazing belly dancer that was performing that night. Also vegetarian friendly, my favourite dish would be the eggplant.
Dined here many times and each time have been 100% satisfied with both the food and the service. Always pleasurable and we look forward to returning.
As always, a meal at this restaurant is fantastic. Wonderful food and wine, exceptional service and great ambiance. Love this place and will definitely be back.
