Authentic Syrian cuisine isn’t always easy to come by, but at Abu Zaad in Shepherds Bush, they’ve got it down pat. Specialising in Damascan delicacies with numerous pan-Middle Eastern specialities thrown in for good measure, Abu Zaad on London’s Uxbridge Road features an extensive menu of delicious options that are satisfying and nourishing. On Sundays from 11am to 1pm, Abu Zaad offers an incredible breakfast buffet featuring everything from hummus and baba ghanouj to traditional breakfast options alongside a number of salads. At dinnertime, you can’t go wrong with the lamb kofta, the baia bi lahmeh (okra fried with lamb, olive oil, tomato, onion and herbs), grilled seabass and the chicken tajin. Don’t queue up – book ahead and beat the crowd!
We went on a Sunday and stepped in to a quiet but friendly oasis on a very hot day in London. Had the breakfast buffet which was delicious and such good value! The waiter was very friendly and attentive. Will definitely return.
As expected, a warm welcome, delicious food, and a reasonable bill for 6. Thank you Abu Zaad staff for such a wonderful Ramadan Iftar meal.
Love it, excellent food and service... will come back to this place any time and every time. there is also enough or reasonable car parking areas around it which is great.
