Is our Middle Eastern restaurant and food the best option for your event?

When you have a special occasion or important event and you’re in charge of organisation and planning, it can be extremely stressful to find the perfect restaurant. There are a number of factors that you have to keep in mind, in addition to finding the perfect place to host your event. One piece of advice that we can offer is to carefully select a restaurant that offers the right combination of high-quality service, delicious food and a suitable atmosphere. While it may seem surprising, it can be quite difficult to find a restaurant that offers all three qualities. However, our Middle Eastern restaurant has all of these qualities and more, making it the perfect spot to celebrate your next occasion.

Despite this, people may still be wondering whether or not a restaurant like Zahli is right for their event. There are several reasons why Zahli would be perfect for any event. In this article, we’ll explore a few reasons why you should hire a Middle Eastern restaurant like Zahli for your next event.

What does a good event need?

Before we dive into the suitability of Zahli, let’s first look at what people look for in a restaurant when determining whether it would be suitable for their special occasion.

  • Variety
      • With several guests, you’ll want to ensure that there is an option for everyone.
  • Ambience & entertainment
      • Whether it be the perfect, moody lighting or lively entertainment, the atmosphere of a restaurant can make or break an event.
  • Quality
      • Even though you’re hosting several people, quality in food and service should never be sacrificed.
  • Hospitality
      • The hospitality of staff is important for ensuring that guests feel welcomed.
  • Organisation
    • The organisation of the location’s staff is key for making sure that your event runs smoothly. 

Whether it be a private get together with family or a corporate event, Zahli will reflect every need mentioned above and ensure that your occasion is a success.

4 reasons why our Middle Eastern restaurant and food is the best option for your event

Diverse food options

When hosting a group or special event, you must cater to everyone’s needs. Pescatarians, vegetarians, vegans and those with allergies or dietary requirements can present a significant challenge when it comes to finding a catering service or restaurant that can accommodate all.

Naturally, Middle Eastern restaurants are very diverse in their cuisine. Several dishes are vegan, vegetarian and dairy-free, making it extremely easy to accommodate for all of your guests. Additionally, our banquet menu which is for 2 to 10 people, also offers a variety of vegan, vegetarian and dairy-free dishes.

Bear in mind that Zahli’s team is also able to accommodate specific dietary requirements, within reason. Contact our restaurant for more information.

Middle Eastern hospitality

Hospitality is a bedrock in Middle Eastern cultures and considered art to many. This is no different at Zahli. Our team members are trained to emulate traditional Middle Eastern hospitality. They treat all guests with respect, warmth, kindness and will tend to every need.

This is exactly the treatment you will want for the attendees of your event. You’ll never be disappointed with the service offered by our staff.

Beautiful decor

Another distinctive feature of a Middle Eastern restaurant is how beautifully decorated all the restaurants are. At Zahli, our restaurant is impeccably and tastefully decorated with a marble bar, beautiful tiles, sleek and modern furnishings and gorgeous decor. It makes for the perfect setting for a celebratory or corporate event, whether you leave it as is or add your festive touch. 


Lastly, the ambience of Middle Eastern restaurants is truly what makes it great for celebratory events. The bright restaurant is usually filled with beautiful, traditional Middle Eastern music. If you’re entertaining a small group, you’ll be situated in a lively and vibrant restaurant that will set the tone for a celebratory evening. Both large and small groups can also benefit from live, traditional belly dancing as dancers often make their way through our dining room to entertain guests.

We hope that we’ve explained to you why Zahli is such an excellent restaurant to host your next event. Our restaurant does not just offer high-quality modern, Middle Eastern food, but also a beautiful space with traditional entertainment.
