    Outstanding Service, Delicious Food, Great Presentation and CLEAN!!! It’s a must when visiting NY. The food tastes as if your Tita (grandma) made it. It was so good, we ordered it the next day for take out.

    Mouth watering appetizers that are true to Lebanese traditional mezze, the lamb tableside sharwarma made for a fun dining experience and quality you can taste. We finished off with Ashta arabic clotted cream dessert - sensational!!

    We really enjoyed the food at Au Zaatar, and of course the best part was the mouthwatering shawarma! We also loved the grilled Halloumi salad and falafel and the Kanafeh at the end was perfect! Fun place to get together with friends and enjoy good food with lively Arabic music in the background and very courteous servers.

    Always an amazing time at Au Za’atar. Although the beef table-side shawarma can get dry, the chicken one is always on point, along with the mix platter

    Au Za'atar is a great place to come with a group of people. You can order the shwarma spit (which is off th e menu) and you get a personal schwarma delivered to your table! It's interactive and a lot of fun. I went with five other women. We ordered a schwarma and three apps, it was enough to leave us full but not overstuffed. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for something a little different in the city.
