“Fantastic fried chicken believe it or not”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014 via mobile

Zin is located on the main strip in Palm Springs,California. They have special prices if you come before 6pm. They have a full bar and excellent service. My son and I had the fried chicken that bc name with d e delicious white gravy, creamed spinach, and,mash potatoes. You can order this as a 3 price prefix dinner with soup or salad and dessert for $35. (I thin ok ny 25 before 6) the salad s not just a plain salad, you can get a wedge with bacon and bleu on top and it is delicious. My daughter had filet mignon which was $34. So not a cheap place but th w prefix is a decent price and like I said it,I cheaper before 6. Our waiter was an , older gentleman, very attentive and nice.

“Good Food Friendly Staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014

There were 4 of us in our party, all entrees were delicious and well presented. We had a late reservation after the holiday weekend, not many in the restaurant but we were not rushed. The veal meatballs are amazing, a must try.

“Pleasantly Surprised”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2014

We had a wonderful dinner here. My wife and I eat out a lot but really only write reviews when we have wonderful experiences, and we definitely had one here. (We were staying with some locals that had told us that if we wanted atmosphere go to LuLu's, but if we wanted good food go to Zin... And they were spot on.) My wife was mesmerized by the Carpaccio... It was seasoned perfectly. And followed that up with the Roasted Beet Salad which went perfectly with the 105 degree weather. I, after recommended by our server, went with The Wedge followed by the Country Fried Chicken. I have read other reviews stating that their chicken was undercooked, but mine was perfect. (It wasn't too salty or over-seasoned... It was just right.) We are definitely going back.
