Guest Cuisine ~ Middle Eastern



Want to know who is the master mind behind out Middle Eastern Guest Cuisine? Then let us tell you some more about them…

Before working at Za Za Bazaar Bristol Gaurav Dayal worked at a hotel resort located in Saudi Arabia. Through his time here Gaurav picked up many authentic Middle Eastern recipes and learnt traditional skills and tips from top Arabic Chefs. Gaurav prepares the Shawarma dish that we are currently serving as part of our Middle Eastern Guest Cuisine, with authentic flavours and spices, which sets it apart from the British Kebab houses. The special blend of spices and marinade, give a truly delicious flavour that has everyone coming back for more.   


Gaurav has designed the Middle Eastern menu and drawn on his experience in Middle Eastern cooking to choose dishes that reflect the beautiful flavours of the Middle East. Each dish is prepared using the traditional Middle Eastern method


When asked what’s the best thing about this guest cuisine. Gaurav says that "Several customers from Middle East have given huge compliments saying they have not found this authentic taste anywhere in England and we should be doing this more often"
