Review | Zaza's Grill


I used to attend Arabic grammar classes with two of my cousins in East London every Wednesday and after our last lesson last month my cousin and I decided to go and try out a Pakistani restaurant we used to pass all the time called Zaza's grill.

From the outside the restaurant looked quite impressive, very clean, chic and great interior design. We thought it would be expensive judging from the look of the restaurant but after a quick glance at the menu was actually not too bad.

We went inside and were shown to our seats (we didn't book beforehand), as soon as we were seated the waiters brought us the menu's and pretty soon after that brought over poppadoms, a variety of three sauces, water (which we didn't have to pay for) and were offered drinks. We were amazed with the speedy and friendly service.

The only thing I would say I was a little disappointed about was the menu, we went in thinking the specialty of the restaurant was grilled food (hence the name) but realised the dishes were more curry's and Indian cuisines rather than a variety of grilled dishes. The one grilled dish we found on the menu was a mixed grill dish so that's what we ordered. The wait for the food was quite long but I think it seemed longer because it was getting late and we actually had to get home, but the free poppadoms with the sauces kept hunger at bay. Our food came sizzling on the plate and looked deeelish! (take a look for yourself)


We ordered Peshawari nan with the mixed grill and it was also amazing mashaAllah! Sweet and soft just the way it should be (= I honestly cannot fault the food or the service because it really was a nice meal and I would go there again. Was a little disappointed with the drink as I was really thirsty and felt like it wasn't really enough, but overall it was a lovely dinner. After we finished (or couldn't finish) I asked for a box to take home what we couldn't eat and gave it to my mum who also loved it. My cousin even ('accidentally') started walk out with the plate of salad until she realised what she was doing and we both couldn't stop laughing (along with the waiter) LOL but I'll let her off she had a long week.

The restaurant is a family friendly restaurant with 100% halal food (obviously) the atmosphere is really calm and relaxing with a touch of class, it's spacious and would be ideal for dinner with friends as well as bigger parties.

Thank you to the brothers at Zaza's for a great meal!

I Took My Driving Test!

Salaam all, I recently took my practical driving test and I thought I would share my thoughts and feelings of that day with you inshaAllah. On Wednesday the 18th I had my driving test. I had practiced all  I could and now the rest was down to Allah swt. I tried to keep myself calm by telling myself that whatever happens it is Allah's will and if I don't pass then maybe this time I wasn't supposed to. As I stood for Taraweeh that night my heart was pounding as I asked Allah to keep me safe on the road and also for me to pass. After praying I felt a lot calmer and soon enough fell asleep. Woke up for Suhoor, prayed Fajr and tried to go back to sleep. All I could think about was how much I wanted to pass, not because I really want to drive or anything, but just because taking lessons was taking up a lot of my time and money that I could spend on other things. As well as taking up my parents time and my uncle's. I got a couple of hours of sleep and woke up bright and

Hijab Style's To Suit Your Face Shape

So you're trying to follow a hijab tutorial but your hijab just doesn't look like the person doing the tutorial, you get frustrated because you can't get it right. Well to be honest I don't think it's so much you getting it wrong, it may just be that the hijab style being demonstrated looks better on the person doing the tutorial due to the shape of that person's face. Just like when you need to get a haircut, when styling your hijab, you have to consider the shape of your face. I've had many people tell me that hijab doesn't 'suit' them because their face is too round, or their cheeks are too chubby, which is the reason why they don't wear hijab, in my opinion hijab suits everyone, you just have to figure out how to wear it to suit you. Contrary to what many think, hijab wasn't prescribed to make you look 'ugly' it is to make you look modest. In this post I have tried to look at some face shapes and find some hijab style i
