One suggestions... Great staff!.
I haven't been there yet, but I am picking up my order this evening, and looking forward to sharing Zena's lamb with my Bible study group at our end of season potluck. Wow! Such great reviews. The only thing I suggest is to have -- somewhere on the web -- a menu (+price list), both for in-restaurant dining, and for catering/take-out. I already like the Zena's personnel I spoke with on the phone. Great staff!
A Must Try!.
I had the Three Skewer Combination, and what a treat that was. It was completely unexpected. Couple the tantalizing flavors with the pureness of their family oriented hospitality and you have an experience that is definitely worth stepping out of the box for. 5 Stars without a doubt!!!! Oh by the way best Hummus too by a long shot...
BEST LOCAL LEBANESE FOOD.
I'm 1/2 Lebanese, and I longed for the old dishes of my childhood. My "clan" is very fussy about our ingredients. We tried EVERYthing, and the only thing that fell short was the falafel and the fact that they don't put meat in their grapeleaves. The service is great and they are very accommodating. We'll be going back!
Best Middle Eastern Food Bar-None!!!.
Great Food!!! I can't say enough about it. From the mezza to the Entrees everything is delicious. I'm particularly fond of the Kabobs. Chicken or Beef you can't go wrong. Huge portions so bring an appetite.
Excellent service and lots of really great food for a fair price. Menu is large and varied. I am a devoted meat eater and went with a vegitarian friend, we both found many tasty things to choose from. Atmosphere is great as well and is in an easy to find location. I will be going back as much as I can
Get a great meal & feel the loving hospitality of the Lebanese people here!.
Zena's has great food, and great service. Ther servers are kind, thoughtful, attentive and knowledgeable of the cuisine & dishes featured on the menu. Their baked stuffed eggplant dish is so great! It's my favorite. Tried to re-create it at home, but failed. Whether you are Lebanese or not, you feel like a member of the family here. This reatuarant is family owned, and you can feel the love in the dishes that are prepared here. It's a definite must try. The first time I ate a meal here, we were confused as to what wine we should try. The owner came out and described to us the Lebanese wine making methods and made a recommendation to a lovely wine. He was a great stroyteller, and was very charismatic. It added a very nice, warm touch to a lovely restuarant. Try it once, and I guarantee you will come here again!
Best home-made, fresh and truly authentic Lebanese food.
After trying several middle eastern restaurants in Orange County and being disappointed by the mediocre Americanized food, Zena was recommended by our Lebanese jeweler. It has since become our favorite Lebanese restaurant, where the truly authentic food is prepared by the family from scratch every day. Service is friendly and helpful. The wine list also contains some very good Lebanese wines. If you enjoy a hukka pipe, different flavors are available and a great little patio is right outside. Although the setting isn't glamorous, you would certainly enjoy the food while rubbing elbows with the local Lebanese community.
