We were there yesterday for lunch and did what we always do and shared the 4 piece chicken dinner. I usually have the wing and the drumstick, my husband the thigh and breast. This time, because the wing was so small I decided to have the thigh. I was surprised to find that it was breast meat. It was way smaller than the thigh, maybe 2" by 3 ". I asked afterwards if they had changed their servings as what I had looked like half a breast. They said no, they always served the full (half) breast and seemed at a loss as to why my piece was so small. Good for them, they offered to cook up some more chicken for us, which we declined. Of course, by this time the detrius had been thrown in the garbage so there was no show and tell. They did say that the chickens they had been getting lately were smaller than they usually are. I am giving them the benefit of the doubt this time as the food is usually excellent and I really like the people running the place. We'll see what happens next time.

No need to repeat the rumblings from below.
I'll just remove my star instead.

Stopped in last night for a quick bite. I didn't think it possible but the chicken is getting even smaller. I remembered our first visit nice large pieces of tender juicy chicken. The partridge sized breast last night was a real disappointment along with the duck sized leg. Think this will be our last visit. The Ottawa shuffle continues with yet another vendor switching it's food. Now where to get some good fried chicken? I wonder if one of the new food trucks will have some decent fried chicken. Fingers crossed.

Wow what a place, I haven't had fried chicken that tender and moist, and delicious in.... well a very very long time. KFC's Dry expensive chicken doesn't even compare not even on the same scope. They even provided a Prayer mat when Magrib came.
We had the Family meal with 12 pieces of the most tender juicy, and tasty chicken with 2 large seasoned fries, Hot rolls, hot sauce and garlic sauce, with a 2 liter of your favorite poison.( I don't drink Pop personally) Our kid who loves Kafta Kabobs had one of their Shammy Kabobs and it was delicious and fresh tasting as well. Highly recommend this place Clean and tasty. A real Halal treat. well worth waiting for your made to order meal.
And to those complaining about how small the chicken pieces are may I suggest the Hormone fed monsters they call Chicken served at KFC, Morons..

If their chicken pieces get any smaller, you won't have to worry about the chicken wing question. Local Heroes sell wings that are bigger than the supposed chicken pieces at Zaki's.

Stopped in there yesterday and we shared the 4 piece dinner. It was excellent as always, although the chicken pieces seemed a bit smaller. I do find that the size of the pieces can vary. They expect their second location in the east end will be open in March. Meanwhile, I asked them my chicken wing question and they do plan on expanding their menu at the Baseline location and will be including chicken wings. Looking forward to that.

Does anyone know if you can order just a pile of wings?

Well ...it was family shopping and lunch day with Mom and my Wife (the world's pickiest eater ..by far) First time there for my wife, second for my Mom. Wife..2 piece chicken, Mom (who loved the chicken first go around) had the Steak sandwich..me the usual 4 piece. Plus the Greek salad shared between Mom and Wife ..so comments ..Chicken was as usual good ..smaller then past..Mom love the Steak sandwich. So onto the worlds pickiest eater .."Chicken was amazing ..she even ate with her hands ..a first.. fries were very good ..but the Greek Salad was Amazing !!" Mom agreed ..and I tried it without cheese and it was fresh and the dressing was amazing. Talked to the owner after ..and all the sauces and dressings are all made in house (Garlic/Hot sauce/Greek dressing) NOTE: The East end location will be opened in Fed 2013 and he said the new web site will be up then as they are working out details on new delivers (lucky East end residence since I live in Stittsville) and other promos ..

As I have said before ..I am a be champion for non-frachise family run restos that deliver good food and great service and great value ..daughters are next I have been told by Grandma ..Good jobs Zaki's !!

I stopped in this week looking for the Philly cheese steak sandwich. Now I have never had one in Philly so I couldn't tell you how it compares but it is good. Tender steak with sautéed mushrooms and onions on a nice soft bun, this sandwich is full of flavour. I do find their food a little salty for me and the chicken strips especially but the garlic sauce is great and tempers the sodium somewhat. As or their French fries, they are using Frigochef (sp?) frozen.

I was dragged to this place even after I explained to my buddy about the tiny pieces of chicken. We both ordered four piece meals and it took 20 minutes to get our food. Not a big deal but the temperature was turned down to 55F and we had to keep our jackets on. After about 15 minutes one of the cooks came out and turned the heat up to 66F. I have to say the chicken was juicy but not worth the $ for the a tiny pieces. Seems no place in town serves any decent sized pieces of chicken so sadly for Ottawa this is about as good as it gets. The fries were awful. I would give them worst I have tried in Ottawa so nothing has changed in that department since my last visit. They were dried out low quality flavorless fries straight from a frozen bag. To top it off the bun/roll was so stale when you tore it apart you could see a difference in color on the inside compared to the middle of it. Can you say freezer burnt. I hear there is another boaster place out on Innes Rd that is due for a visit to see if the small chicken plague will continue. Pic is a thigh. It may look average but not that much meat on it at all.

Yes, it's juicy and not very greasy. On the downside it isn't very crispy. A great alternative to the fries is to get the rice instead. It is seasoned basmati and they were happy to sub it for the fries last time.

This chicken is amazing like everyone said: plump, juicy, crispy, incredibly non-greasy, and lightly seasoned. The seasoning is very mild, which allows you to enjoy the chicken flavour but it might be too mild for some. I tried one of them tossed in hot sauce, and it was nice to have variety but I prefer them plain.

Fries were seasoned and boring. I ate a few of them and left the rest. I took one bite of the unnecessary bun to see how it was -- not too bad. Go for the chicken. ;-)

I'd like to get a 4-piece meal with salad instead of fries/bun. That would be awesome.
