Been to this restaurant twice with a large group (30 people) for a business dinner. Both times were superb experiences. The restaurant is a rare find that combines great food, a quiet atmosphere (so you can actually have productive conversations), superb service, and a polished,...More

We had a special occasion and chose Zahir's. The food was superb. Every appetizer, every entree, every dessert. The service was impeccable. Including a table-side visit from Zahir himself. What a gentleman! This is clearly a no-risk destination -- you can't go wrong.

Been here a few times and the food is pretty good. Menue isn't huge but it varied. Staff was attentive although there was just a few patrons there. Biggest issue was the mens rooms. It was disgusting- it smelled like a back-up sewer.

This my wife's favorite restaurant in Milpitas. She had her 60th birthday party there. We've got to know the owner and waitress very well. They make the best prime rib in the city. It literally melts in your mouth! They're only open for dinner, but...More

Yes. My wife had her BD party for 50 people for lunch. They don't normally open for lunch, but will do so for special events. I suppose dinner would be the same. We love this restaurant. Parking is pretty decent. But... More
