They use a pressure deep fryer which makes all the difference in taste when it comes to frying chicken or anything else fried. Crispy on the outside soft and tender on the inside. The price is right. The décor and setup is like a fast food restaurant. If you are looking for fried chicken this is the place to visit.

We make a point of having at least one meal at Zaki Broast whenever in Ottawa. Their service and quality are consistently good. If you're looking for Halal food, shawarma places are not the only option.

We end up here for lunch about once a week. The food is awesome. My favourites are the chicken pieces and the steak sandwich. Everything is cooked fresh so there can be a wait at times. Call ahead even for eat if you are I a rush. Pro Tip: Mix the garlic and the hot sauce

We were looking to have some pho but none were open so came upon this new location. The place is spotless and offers a menu of grilled and strip chicken and beef with rice and salad or in wraps. The service was a tad slow but well worth the wait. Delicious long grain rice perfumed with cumin, chicken perfectly grilled,... More

If you love kababs and friend chicken, this is your place to go in West-Ottawa! The best part is that it is Halal. I love their shami kabab plates that come with rice and a sale. I usually go here with my husband and we often share a plate since the servings are generous. The service could be quicker but... More

Love KFC, but can't have it bc its not halal?..then go to Zaki. I'm a picky eater so I should know..good Broast chicken (sometimes overcooked), but better burgers...and Philly steak sandwich is prob the best. They have Tuesday and Wednesday specials ands well...overall good. The owners re very nice, but the staff is sometimes indifferent.

I ordered take out of one tandoori skewer ($8) and a side order of basmati rice. ($3) Flavour of chicken was good with nice seasoning, but I felt a bit ridiculous opening my takeout box to reveal 7 little cubes of chicken. It was good, but I wouldn't order it again. The service was a bit funny. Cashier seemed flustered... More

The steak sandwich is where its at. The chicken was a little small but still much better than KFC . Service was a little slow but extremely friendly. The steak sandwich portion is enormous.

I have been to Zaki's a few times. I won't go back. No service, dirty tables, lousy chicken, brutal "sauces", bland rices and terrible fries. How do places like this survive? What have our standards become? My most recent visit was a home delivery. I ordered 12 pieces of fried chicken. That's what they specialize in so that's what I... More

The Steak Sandwich is by far my (only) favorite ! Tastes great and good price especially when you combo it with fries and a drink. Didn't like the chicken or the rice/tikka/shami. Always stick to the steak sandwich !
