Zaidi's Grill - CLOSED
Scottsdale, AZ 85257
Phoenix New Times' Description
Featuring classic dishes made from family recipes and memories of meals in their hometown of Karachi, Syed and Tabassum Zaidi, owners and chefs of this sparse but pleasant eatery in Scottsdale, call their authentic culinary style “cooking from the grass roots.” Featuring a small but solid menu of well-seasoned grilled meats, curries nearly tripping over themselves with flavor, and a few veggie selections, most dishes are exceptional, others satisfying, and all but one are under $10. Start with deep-fried spicy pakoras, then order the Indian cheese dish palak paneer with a grilled meat like Afghani boti (chicken marinated in green spices) or one of the Zaidi’s stellar curries like goat karahi, beef nihari, or the soon-to-be-famous chicken qorma.

Try their chicken qorma. So good!
He's holding on by the skin of his teeth and Allah's will. The Chicken Qorma is wonderful. The goat Karhaay is quite spicy if you're not used to it. Zaidi's ery helpful, so ask for him personally.
