Za Za Ta

Fortitude Valley

ZA ZA TA is an exotic oasis within Fortitude Valley's Emporium - a Middle Eastern restaurant and bar serving dishes unlike anything else in Brisbane in a splendid setting to match.

The stunning decor is Alhambra palace meets Raffles Hotel, with a touch of Marrakesh, spread over several rooms and featuring velvet lounges, leadlight doors, tessalated tiles and rattan bar stools

No visit to ZA ZA TA's restaurant should be attempted without first having a drink in the colonial, chic bar, with its opulent furnishings and candlelit tables. To the rear, there's a feature that looks like a stage with a curtain, behind which is 'the library', another stunning drinking lounge with backlit shelves of exquisite pottery and elegant couches and armchairs.

Here you can sink into a plush chair and enjoy a glass of artisanal wine, a colonial-inspired rum from ZA ZA TA's curated collection, a Mediterranean-style gin or a creative cocktail, infused with Arabian spice, indigenous botanicals and Queensland citrus.

The palatial dining room is the perfect back-drop for the food menu, which is unlike anything served at other Brisbane restaurants, and which brings a unique taste of Tel Aviv to the table. Here, centuries-old tradition gets a modern twist, using local ingredients to create a delectable menu designed to share.
