My husband and I chose to take four family members here for dinner while we we're visiting San Antonio, his Mom & sister with their husbands.We've both lived overseas as children, so we like different foods from around the world. We we're greeted by the owner's as if we were family.
The appetizer's and the food were delicious. Service was exceptional. Prices were reasonable. We would eat here again. They told us they are changing location's, so be sure and call ahead to see if move has
taken place. We would eat here again.
best middle eastern in San Antonio. I have eaten here so many times (at least 20) (eat in and take out) and I love this place. The food is authentic and delicious and the people are friendly.
NOT CONSISTENT ON FOOD QUANTITY.
I have now been to ZAKI 5 times, and each time ordered the exact same item and 5 times I received a completely different amount of food..... One time I get Salad for 4, next time not enough for 1.... One time PITA for 3 next time NO PITA, its very frustrating.
Food has ALWAYS been good,,,,, you just never know what amounts your getting.
Good stuff. Food is great and excellent service. Love the Kabobs and the hummus. I try to go there once every week.
Super Kabobs!. I am farily new to San Antonio and in the military. My deployments to the Middle East exposed me to the cuisine of the region. I was looking for something different here in town, so I decided to try Zaki. It was a very pleasant surprise! The decor and ambiance isn't that great, but you if you are looking for a change in your normal dining fare, try this place because the food was excellent. The pita bread and hummus was most excellent along with the chicken kabobs. Very authentic! If your tired of mexican food along with the myriad of fast food restaraunts, then try this place.
Feast of the Middle East. Zaki is an Arabic word for delicious, and the authentic Middle Eastern fare served at this wonderful cafe more than lives up to its name. Nowhere in the city (besides my dads house for Sunday lunch) have I been able to find such amazing traditional Arabic cuisine. Tabooley, falafel, shish kabobs (chicken or kafta both perfect), shawarma, lamb (some of the best I've ever had), hummus and their rice are all terrific. Service is friendly and very accommodating and the price is absolutely unbeatable, a filling lunch is around $5, and the bill for a gut busting dinner ran me and 3 others a total of $28. If you're anywhere near the IH-10/Loop 410 this will soon be your favorite spot for lunch or dinner but its a definite must try anywhere in the greater San Antonio area.
Humble prices for hummus and more..
Brightly colored walls and images of Middle Eastern memorabilia fill this eatery. Two televisions with music video clips hang from the checkerboard ceiling to entertain patrons while they dine on the reasonably priced cuisine. Menu items include typical Middle Eastern fare such as gyros, falafels, hummus and chicken shish kabobs, but also lamb cubes and various daily specials. Enjoy fresh-baked baklava for dessert.
