The latest addition to West Village’s pumping laneways is already poised to be a crowd favourite. Zazu Dining & Bar boasts a diverse selection of dishes and showcases the very best of modern European and pan-Asian cuisines, making it a no-brainer when the dreaded question of ‘where should we eat tonight?’ comes up.

Zazu Dining & Bar has a truly global menu featuring a selection of dishes from Eastern and Western cultures, including Gillian Hirst’s famous Sand Crab Lasagna. A lot of love and thought has gone into this menu focused on share plates made with seasonal ingredients hand selected from local producers. Who doesn’t love the sound of bao buns, chicken karaage, fresh carpaccio and rustic eclectic pizzas. The menu has been split up into small plates and larger share plates (designed for two or more people), with banquet menus on the way for those who like to leave the decision-making to the experts.

There are plenty of highlights on this menu which has been designed to cater to all tastes: 

  • Gillian Hirst’s famous Sand Crab Lasagna
  • Oysters, served with creme fraiche, cucumber, fennel brunoise, black caviar
  • Tuna carpaccio served with toasted edamame, fried shallots, dehydrated olives and hazelnut vinaigrette
  • Glazed pork hock, a fun twist on the classic Peking duck, served with the classic pancakes, Zazu’s own homemade plum sauce and crispy strips of cucumber, green onion and chili
  • Lamb Shoulder – 1kg Slow-cooked lamb shoulder on the bone & salsa verde.

No stone has been left unturned in designing the space and keeping the good vibes flowing at Zazu Dining & Bar. There’s a mezzanine function space and sunken private dining room for those large group bookings and the whole venue has even been equipped with noise and lighting sensors to control music and lighting levels. There’s plenty of bar seating (indoor and outdoor) and even ‘mini’ cocktails on offer for those who wish to taste every tipple but still be able to drive home. And we strongly encourage you to try them all, as each one has been expertly crafted and the classics have each been given a twist. We’re already obsessed with the Negroni Cloud, a classic negroni topped with a delightful pineapple foam and sprinkled with crushed chocolate and honeycomb. With an impressive wine wall, featuring over 90 wines from around the globe, Zazu Dining & Bar has your every need covered.
