Zena's Lebanese Cuisine on Tustin ave in Orange

  • k
  • 9

what you think about this place? Worth a try. the ground beef kabab is like 19 bucks and the whole red snapper is like 24 bucks, so it ain't cheap for a whole in the wall type place in a mini-mall. But is it any good? Or not really compared to the prices?

I may have to be Orange for a few days, so hence the litany of posts on Orange reccomendations.

  1. I thought it was an average Lebanese restaurant.

      For the prices you're paying, it's not worth it. Calling this place average is being kind.

    2. It's average. Cedars down the street is a better option, or Byblos in the Circle (and Cedars is better than Byblos).

      None of them can hold a candle to the places in Little Arabia, like Olive Tree.

        Definitely Olive Tree is better!!! (or anywhere in Little Arabia for that matter...)

      2. I have enjoyed it, but didn't think it was great. I just haven't bothered to search out better in the area since it is relatively close to home.

        I had only been to Byblos once, and I didn't think it was particularly better.

          Byblos is the same level of food to me — serviceable — but at 1/3 less cost.

          1. re: Das Ubergeek

            1/3 the cost of Zena's? also why is Zena's so damn expensive? anyone have an explanation?

            also, wasn't cedar's known by a different name before?

            1. re: kevin

              1/3 less than Zena's. Where Zena's is $18, Byblos is $12.

              Cedars was Meejana before. Short-lived, that place was. Different owners though.

                that's it Meejana, i read a write-up about it. It sure sounded good.

                And Cedars i presume is better than Meejana?

                thanks.

                I did end up at Ralph's Subs. I really like that place, the one joint that still reminds me of East Coast style subs.
