Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Where to begin?! We chose this restaurant because of the positive feedback. We went there to eat dinner. The restaurant was empty and we were the only customers in the hole place. We ordered starters and main meals. They dont serve alcohol. We got the...starters very fast. We had started to eat the starters when they brought the main meals immediately. I ate the "libanon bread" The main meals were already cold. As I said, we were the only customers. What´s all the hurry? The food tasted ok, but it was cold and the avocado was raw. After we got the food, the staff went away. We had finished our dinner and we waited for the bill. 15 minutes goes by, then 20... half an hour. Then there came a wolt driver. He brought food for the staff. No bill for us. We then called to the restaurant from the restaurant, so that the staff would pick up the phone so that we could tell that we wanted to pay. The phone started to ring in the kitchen, but nobody answered. I then went to check the kitchen and the rooms in the back, no staff were found. We waited with our hats and jackets on fot he bill. After an hour a waitress came and told that we had to pay the bill to the counter. That they are not going to bring it to the table. All this show and cold food. We dont recommend the pöace at all. Something positive? it looked a clean place. Not worth of the money.More

This place is number one for a reason - the place is cute with great atmosphere, the server was very friendly and gave recommendations, and the food was SO GOOD. Filled with different tastes - great falafel with the freshness of pomegranate, mango, etc. Amazing,...it's a must go place for sure. I went there on a Saturday around 3pm, so there was plenty of room but I think it is pretty busy during dinner rush.More

The food is absolutely heavenly, I love it 😍 also, the restaurant is beautifully decorated and the staff is always friendly. But the food is the main thing and it truly is to die for 😋 the best thing is that you can eat it...with a good conscience as it’s vegetarian!More

Good vegetarian food, but would be better with more flavours. There are actually two Zeytuu restaurants in Tampere, but I’ve only visited the one in Tuomiokirkonkatu. Don’t know if they differ much from each other.

First the good things friendly service, clean restaurant. the food we ate was a mezeplate, which was totally overpriced compared to what we got. Two overcooked rockhard falafel and different kind on sauses and tiny pieces of bread was close to 20 euros. We had...to the restaurant next door to have a real dinner.More

Good food and good service. A nice restaurant that can be recommended. We had Goat Cheese meze and all the dishes had excellent taste and a nice presentation. We were very pleased with our visit. If you prefer a glass of wine/beer to your dinner,...it can be good to know that this establishment doesn’t offer alcoholic beverages.More

Small and cosy place. No bad smells so well ventilated (which is difficult with all the frying (which belongs to the Lebanese cuisine). Food was fresh and the portion size was filling. Lentil soup, water and coffee were included with lunch price of 11.90€. The...plate was nicely presented. Felafel were really good, the Hummus and Baba ghanouge were ok and the Vine-leaves rolls were home made (but over cooked, the rice has turned to mush). The things that could be worked on: 1. Not placing the “Lebna” yogurt on the felafel, some people prefer eating the felafel with Tahina or Hummus. 2. Not to put the Taboule next to any dip (this time it was close to the Lebna and Felafel). I was disappointed for not satisfying my cravings for Taboule as it lost all taste with the mix. 3. Maybe cut the Egyptian songs and add more Lebanese music. (In my 1-hour there I heard only one song for Kathem which is the closest to Lebanese culture)… what is wrong with Fairuz, Wadih, Nawal, Raghib, Sabah and even Majda? The music was annoying and I thought putting my headphones on. It is a restaurant worth visiting. But if you expect a taste from Baalbek, Harissa or Beirut, you will be disappointed. I can’t give it more that 3 stars because I know Lebanese cuisine very well.More

Zeytuun was closed for a while but has fortunately returned, as it remains one of my favourite meze plazes in Finland. This is a very good place for a lunch: good falafels, hummus, baba ganoush, mainated fava beans etc.
