Some friends and I went for some late night snacks and to try this place out. We ordered the steamed buns and 5 spiced calamari. Everything was fantastic but they serve the best calamari I have ever eaten.

Zinda is in a prime location on Fayetteville within easy walking distance to the Memorial Auditorium. The interior is beautifully decorated and you feel like you are in a trendy, classy place. The food was really just mediocre. It certainly wasn't bad at all. It...More
