My boyfriend love to stop by Z'Marik when we are looking for an affordable and low-key date night. Neither of us has any trouble picking something out to eat on the menu and I have tried many different dishes, none of which have disappointed.

This is a good place for fast place for take out. The down side is their portion control. The bread was to hard and dried out. But overall I would rate it a “B”.

This place has great noodle dishes. Some of them are spicier than others. It was very busy with students and the service was fast.
