We all really like the food here. Everything tasted great. For a large group like ours to all agree is high praise. The service was warm, but a bit slow and disorganized. We hope it will get better with time since they are fairly new. The portion size may not look big in some dishes but all the food were very filling. Recommend to share everything. All the food tasted great, but focus on one dish alone makes harder to finish all that food.

Service was great food needs improvement. Decor is authentic, location is perfect. But food needs some care. Expensive for the quality.

We all were very amazed by the good food! Although we don't eat Syrian food often. The stuff was also very nice.

I have had some really good Syrian foods before, but never in a Syrian Restaurant. We jumped at the opportunity in Linz. Normally, we NEVER eat in restaurants where they employ Hawkers to urge passers-by to eat there. Ayam Zaman does, but...

The staff were very friendly and tried to be helpful even when some seemed to have no prior restaurant experience. When we had difficulty choosing a dish, the waiter gave us no useful help. I spoke with a waitress who seemed to be in charge of the dining area. She was more helpful, but still not enough. Finally I asked if they could create a sampler tray of all their entrees. They gladly did so.

After our order was placed, we wondered what the tray would cost. Since everything on the menu was nearly the same price, we hoped for the best. Within a reasonable time, our tray arrived and was placed on the table without explanation. When we asked what the dishes were, the waiter gave us the Syrian names for each. That did not help as we still could not tell what INGREDIENTS each dish had. Another consultation with the lady in charge somewhat clarified the issue. Every item was at least good and ranged to exceptionally tasty. The price was 16€ per person, the same as the other menu entrees. So, based on the food taste and quality I highly recommend the Ayam Zaman.

Warning, this restaurant serves no alcohol. We drank water and were satisfied.

We thought: We like Iranian, Turkish and Libanon food, so why not try Syrian!. The style is similar but definitely there are some ingredients that makes it special and different.
I would recommend the entrace before the main dish. The main dish was good but the entrace was so good I couldn't take a photo because it was gone too fast!

The service is friendly and the place has a nice atmosphere.
My only complaint was the smokers because we were in the courtyard, but that is not the restaurant fault.

Recommended!
