I stopped by with Partner off the menu to try the Chicken Shawarma it is sooo flavorful and juicy. The chicken is cooked to order and the vegetables are just as fresh as the chicken. They add a garlic sauce to tie the freshness of the veggies to the warm savoryness of the chicken. I got some hummus on the side because I freaking love hummus. Jessica took care of me and made me try some desserts. I Had the Basbousa because I’ve never had it before its. A thick coconut based cake soaked in rose syrup. You have to come in and try it…my new favorite.
Thanks Jess.

Amazing Mediterranean food. Everything comes out warm and the portions are generous. So many options, so it is friendly for all dietary preferences. I’ve had the shrimp and salmon so far, and the lemon salmon was to die for. Definitely a place I will frequent when in the area.

Z Garden is my favorite Mediterranean food restaurant! I have been coming here for 7 years already and quality remains the same: still awesome chicken shawarma with absolutely the best garlic sauce, amazingly tasty hummus and a little pepperoncini – all I love so much
And for desert my favorite Baklava mmmm
Thank you Z Garden crew so much!
