About Abu Zaad

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!

My favourite restaurant out of the 3 branches is Shepherd's Bush I've been coming here for 4 years. Visited the Ealing branch once and never going back.

Food was delicious as ever. Actually prefer the starters at Abu Zaad so much so that I was pretty much full on starters. As for mains lamb tajine is my favourite.

Quite disappointing, considering all of the good reviews I saw online. Service was very much lacking and the food was not at all impressive, in taste or presentation. We ordered 7 different main dishes and not one of them was at the standard I hoped for. Nothing special. And the "side salads" that were meant to come with quite a few of the dishes, were just a small pile of lifeless iceberg lettuce. Considering the starters and the mains, we didn't bother staying for dessert; we didn't need more disappointment. I don't think I would come back again, nor would I recommend it.

Great food - at a great price. We were stuffed after the mixed mezze to start and two main courses - all for £30 (2 of us) - arguably over-ordered! Service very friendly as well - and quick.

The service was very good. The buffet had a good spread. However I think because we went close to closing time it wasn't that hot. It was 8 pounds all you can eat and they let us do take away. It wasn't the tastiest meal I've had but it was good value for money.

Terrific selection of meze / starters (we chose a full complement rather than main courses) - I recommend the hara isbah as something new to try.

It was a nice time out. The Ambience was good and the staff was courteous. The food was good as well. We arrived late then the time we had booked but we were comfortably seated and attended to.

Lovely food and very reasonably priced. Good customer service and will definitely go there again. Great location and fairly busy which is always a good indication of a good restaurant.

Great food and very reasonable prices. Am vegetarian and there weren't so many main dishes that were veggie-friendly but the mezze was delicious. Staff also friendly and service good.

The food is great, but the person who took our order was horribly rude and they seemed to be deep cleaning the kitchen from around 10pm which was so noisy that we could barely hear ourselves:

Food was very good, also the price was ok but we were not too impresed with the waiter or maybe we were not getting his jokes :).

Whilst not smart, it has a pleasant atmosphere, good service, really varied menu and is incredibly good value. The most sublime homous. We will definitely be back.

Not as good as previous visit. They appeared unaware of our booking but managed to accommodate us. Most of food was good but some chicken had to be sent back as it was uncooked! It failed to reappear.

An average kebab shop at best. Dry food. Never saw a waiter again after he took our order. Go a kebab shop with table n chairs and save money!
