Excellent Indian food -- youExcellent Indian food -- you have GOT to try the Malai Kofta and the Cheese Naan bread!!!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstandingRarely have I found a restaurant where the service is impeccable, the food dreamy and the place elegant. We went to celebrate my daughter's birthday and our wedding anniversary, It was a memorable evening. I will definitely go back.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMSpicy Asian TreasureIf you like Indian/Punjabi food this will be a place you'll remember.
The decor is clean and contemporary. The food is delicious with one caveat. Almost everything on the menu has a good bit of spicy heat to it. Even the dishes marked as mild. On both occasiopns when we've eaten at Zaika my other half (who truthfully has no capacity for spicy food) found his meal too spicy for him to eat. On both occasions the waiter didn't hesitatate at all to have something prepared off menu that he found delicious. This is I think emblematic of the all around excellence of the service at Zaika.
I heartily recommend this great eatery only a couple of blocks from the Clarendon Metro station on the Orange line.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat patioWe dined outside which was lovely. The food is quite good - not the best Indian I've had, but good. Prices are a bit higher than you'd expect but not totally unreasonable. Great service. If you're going on the weekend, definitely make a reservation. If you park in the garage they validate which makes it only 3 bucks for up to 2 hours.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstandingReally enjoyed myself and the food was excellent!!!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day BrunchI took my wife to a Mother's day buffet in which we found the food very tasty and the staff pleasant.
We definitely plan to return to Zaika at some point in the future.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGood experienceWe tried Zaika for the first time last week-end and were pleased overall. Service was quick and attentive, and the food was delicious. Our server was good about making mild menu suggestions fit for kids who do not like spicy food. The nan was hot and fluffy and every single dish we ordered was satisfactory. Great find, we will be back.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWe always love Zaika. TheWe always love Zaika. The one criticism I have is that their tables for 2 are right on top on one another, so it can be difficult to have a private discussion and distracting to hear your neighbors. Food and service are always great!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMContinues to be exceptionally good!We have been going to this restaurant every since it opened as Tandori Nights, and were very concerned when it changed ownership and became Zaika. There are many Indian restaurants but not many that are exceptionally good and we rated Tandori as one of the best in the area. We have found from experience when a restaurant that is really good changes hands it rarely maintains the same standards and quality of food. We were delighted to find that everything at Zaika is still as good as it was under the previous ownership and will continue to frequent this restaurant.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMLove it here.

The dishes were presented in a unique way on sizzling plates which looked nice but wasn't necessary for the price. Overall, I would go back there but its not a ongoing go to spot.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMZaika (fka Tandoori Nights)Zaika (fka Tandoori Nights) is a personal favorite and was a great spot for a small 40th birthday celebration. The food is delicious - their crispy spinach app. rivals that of the downtown restaurants. Bonus, we were able to bring in an outside dessert without any problem. Highly recommend!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food & service are alwaysThe food & service are always good at Tandoori Nights (now Zaika). However, on 12/24/12, we had to ask twice for our waiter, as he was nowhere to be found. The rest of the staff was very nice & attentive.12/24/2012 12:00:00 AMpeople kept coming in thepeople kept coming in the afternoon. i went with two of my friends. Had lamb dishes. we had a good time.
