Zooroona Restaurant 1710 W Main St, Kalamazoo Mediterranean • $$

“I think it’s up for debate what our wedding guests loved more, seeing us get married or this food. The food was beautifully presented and delicious. We were able to make a menu that not only accommodated vegans, vegetarians, nut allergies, and gluten sensitivities, but also provided a complete meal for those guests. We heard from just about every one of our 140+ guests how it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding. Many of the guests were not familiar with Mediterranean food, but they left with a new favorite cuisine. The staff were extremely helpful throughout the process and were very enthusiastic about giving us the best experience possible. We would highly recommend them for anything from dining in to catering larger events.”

“Friendly, welcoming staff, awesome food, and a great bar games selection. The beer is pretty good, too :)3rd visit - definitely recommend the food and beer! The Cuban sandwich is legit (not Miami legit, but this is Michigan) and their servers are happy to chat, ignore you (if that's your preference), and let you taste the beer before you buy, even if you're just weighing a 4-pack to take home.Definitely will visit again.

“My 9yo grandson wanted to try a new place to eat lunch today so he Googled restaurants nearby his home and thought this sounded good. So we went there and found his new favorite place to eat in the world! They had fresh cut fries which he raved about! Mimi, these are so good, way better than Mc Donald's! And those were his favorite fries , lol. He also got 1/4 BBQ chicken with spicy sauce, baked beans and garlic toast. I tried their Italian beef with peppers and onions. There was more food than we could eat and it was all delicious. The owner was very nice, helpful and personable but not intrusive at all. We required a to go container for my grandsons leftovers so he now had a full lunch for tomorrow as well. Food was very fresh and well made with large portions and the restaurant was clean and full of sports memorabilia. It's a delightful change from chain places and I highly recommend it.”

“I don’t like doing one stars anymore. If someone has that bad of a opinion nobody forced you to go here . A lot of people crying over prices. Again nobody made you buy here . But on the other hand everything I ate wasn’t very fresh. To eat the French toast you need a cup of water to dip it in . Way to hard . I got hash here and was like rocks . The slushes are the best . But nice little snack area. Only thing two employees was talking and I walked up stood there for 30 seconds and they still didn’t say anything. So I said excuse me . Still nothing. So I walked away . They then tried to help me and I said nvm pay attention to your customers. With all this I still give a 5 star. Because it helps a manager talk to these people to fix the issues. If you complain about the price and give a one star , just seems crazy . Also with COVID I think they should clean the tables. Couldn’t find one clean table and they just stood there for most part”

“I cannot give a higher rating to a burger joint in Michigan and I would put them up against any burger spot nation wide.

Lacy beef perfectly grilled to crispy perfection surrounding a perfectly cooked center slathered in American cheese, crisp lettuce, onions and a sauce that is reminiscent of YumYum sauce. All in all a near perfect burger. The Nonla way takes your experience to a whole new level with the addition of thinly sliced jalepeños, perfectly cool slices of cucumber, cilantro, and grilled onions takes this to a Bahn Mi esque experience that makes it truly a culinary delight. I live thirty minutes away and willing make the journey as much as my wife allows. The vegetarian options are not an afterthought but a shining example of how to do good food for a varied audience. Nonla you’re killing it and I hope you expand!”

Nate is *super* knowledgeable and it's been very fun to try some of his more inventive roasts, including my current favorite which is infused with notes of tequila!We typically use the beans for pour overs and Nate helped my husband figure out exactly what equipment he needed for grinding beans to the perfect consistency at home.I enjoy sampling whatever Nate is brewing each weekend at the KZoo farmers market -- I highly recommend stopping by, saying hello to him and his son and treating yourself to an excellent cup of coffee!”

“We stopped in for lunch with our 7 year old during spring break today and had a great time!Food and drinks were great but the best part was our server/bartender Beacon. She was so kind and personable all while managing the bar and people at tables on her own. Our service was fantastic. Beacon even overheard our daughter be a little bummed that mom at the last bite of her chicken tender (she said she was done!) and brought over a surprise freshly cooked tender. It was the sweetest and funniest little gesture.It’s been a while since we’ve encountered a server so wonderful in Kalamazoo. Beacon is a treasure!”

“My 9yo grandson wanted to try a new place to eat lunch today so he Googled restaurants nearby his home and thought this sounded good. So we went there and found his new favorite place to eat in the world! They had fresh cut fries which he raved about! Mimi, these are so good, way better than Mc Donald's! And those were his favorite fries , lol. He also got 1/4 BBQ chicken with spicy sauce, baked beans and garlic toast. I tried their Italian beef with peppers and onions. There was more food than we could eat and it was all delicious. The owner was very nice, helpful and personable but not intrusive at all. We required a to go container for my grandsons leftovers so he now had a full lunch for tomorrow as well. Food was very fresh and well made with large portions and the restaurant was clean and full of sports memorabilia. It's a delightful change from chain places and I highly recommend it.”

“Ten Ten's food is excellent!! The staff is fantastic and wants to make sure you're happy with everything from the time you first walk to your table, to the first time you go up to serve yourself with the beginning of your meal!! Their prompt in refilling foods when their running low to answering questions that customers may have about a dish they were looking for!! They attempt to have a wide variety of foods that can satisfy anyone's palate!! I think they have done exactly that!! When I first started going there it was busy but now it's even busier but they have plenty of room and seem to be able to handle the crowds who seem to love the place as much as I do!! I wish my camera took pictures that showed really good pictures!! Ten Ten deserves someone who has the ability to have excellent quality pictures because it deserves it!! Everything that I've eaten there is colorful and the dishes deserve to show that!! So if you haven't been there yet give it a try, I think you'll be happy you did!!Parking: Parking lotKid-friendliness: High chairs and booster seats!!Wheelchair accessibility: Wide doors and handicap parking!! They take a chair away from the table to allow for the wheelchair to be able to pull directly up to the table!! Doesn't make a person feel like you're unwanted there!! I too am handicapped with a cane and they offered assistance with getting food and carrying it back to the table!! That's very considerate which is more than appreciated!! Makes it easier for the rest of my family to get their plates and we can all sit down and eat at the same time!!”
