An inspiring energy comprises of majestic views of the spanning sea and rocky terraces along with walls laden with artwork, sounds of nature and eclectic genres of live and recorded music that escape from the Anjuna bustle, a fresh scent of the salty ocean, cocktails along with Mexican, Seafood, and meat grills to tantalise any tastebuds, and Zuri's (the owner) own charming touch.
With access the the rocky terraces and wave breakers below where seating can be made available, sunset walks, fisherman, water sports and ships in the distance an are a common sight. Guests can enjoy a moment gazing into the natural forming rock pools whilst they wait for their meal.
With walls decorated by international artists, soft ambient lighting in the evening, and the natural surrounds of coconut trees set a top a cliff, Zoori’s is the place to dine in bliss.

The bar serves up a variety of fresh juices, various brews of local Indian and imported Italian coffee, local and foreign liquor and cocktails that are as smooth as the sun sets into the Arabian sea.

“Serving coffee to friends started it all.” Zoori’s, opened officially in 1995 by owner Zuri, grew organically from a friendship circle into one of the most frequented hotspots.
Having been closed for the last four years, Zuri and Zoori’s have returned for the 2014/15 season!
The owner insists on “good vibes”. He ultimately wants people to come visit him, welcoming them into his home, sharing his space with open arms.
From coffee to snacks, then adding food and drinks, Zuri says that the restaurant can become anything if that is what his friends desire.
