I decided to try Zawa for brunch after reading their menu. The restaurant is surprisingly large, and curiously outfitted with a mixture of late 20th century fittings, featuring what must surely be the largest booths on Commercial Drive. Before noon, the place was quiet, but...More

Decent food for good prices. Service not great. The place has a lot of potential and should provide live music with all the space they have. The Souvlaki is probably the best thing on the menu, In my opinion.

We had a late lunch here so service was very fast. Good quantity of food which was nicely prepared and very tasty. The spicy shrimp was nice and hot, no scrimping on spices here. Our other meal was also very good.

Commercial Drive
Commercial Drive, also called "The Drive," comprises
of twelve sauntering blocks of modest and unfussy
counter-culture. Straddling the line between
sophisticated and unadorned, it is favoured by
students, artists, writers, designers, and start-ups,

counter-culture. The kind of neighbourhood which
well-springs thought-revolutions and has the odd bit
