    Food is North Indian. It is excellent . Service is polite and attentive. Our first experience, we were in the larger group area and had noisy neighbors. The second time we were by ourselves. But when we left the booths were all full and the noise level was moderate. The restaurant seems to have a good mixture of clients with various backgrounds.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 2/14/2014
    Going to Zayka, we knew from reading previous reviews that we would be waiting, so we went there for our Valentine dinner. Our Samosas were served 45 minutes after being seated, and our meal 1h and 20 minutes later. The food was delicious and we will definitely return at a less busy time.

    We were early birds at the restaurant, but we were made welcome and given an extensive menu to browse through. We tried the mixed appetizer, which was well cooked. We then had the beef Biryani and chick pea curry. Both were very good. Service was pleasant and efficient. Overall, we enjoyed our Indian experience very much.

    Dined on 4/12/2013
    Our party of 3 arrived within 5 minutes of our reservation. We had to tell them 3 times that it was an Open Table reservation before we got confirmation. We had the Assorted Pakora appetizer, Rogan Josh, Aloo Ghobi Masala and two Lamb Biryani(medium hot). The waiter made a point of trying to correct me in that we were ordering 4 meals/3 people and that Aloo Ghobi was a (veg.) main course. I tried to order extra Raita for the Biryani but he said it came with the dinners. The amount of raita that came was miniscule for the size of the Biryani--disappointing. The food was OK. We've had much better in CA. Recommendation: Have the staff learn to listen very carefully to the patrons and respond appropriately. Communication was very p

    The food was definitely a regional Indian style and was delicious. The Paneer was tasty and the Chicken Curry excellent. The Lamb Vindaloo was different from any other we had tasted, but good. The Cauliflower & Potato side dish was the best I have ever tasted and the Naans- both plain and cheese filled were exceptional.

    I was a little turned off from the service. There was no music in the restaurant at all except fo the radio in the kitchen. It is a beautiful restaurant and the food was good; however I won't be going back anytime soon.

    It was a very busy evening due to Valentines night. The staff had to work very hard but did stay on top on things. Food was great! I did include in my open table/on-line reservation reservation that I preferred to stay away from the entrance door. My reserved table was situation right at an entrance door? I was told we were seated on a first come , first serve reservatiuon list? I had to be firm before my issue was resolved. Once seated, everything was great!

    Very good atmosphere and service. One of the dishes was not what we ordered, but it was good. Appetizer (samosa) was under-heated.

    Dined on 7/17/2010
    The service was very attentive, but the drink order and food were very slow arriving. When the food did arrive, one dish came out five minutes before the other. They were hosting a large party celebrating a birthday, so that may have affected the kitchen. The food, however, was delicious! This was our first visit, and we'll return hoping there is not a special event taking place then.

    Fairly new restaurant. Our first try at Indian cuisine and we were quite pleased with the food. The service was good, but this restaurant is located sort of off the beaten path. It is worth trying if you wanted to experience a different cuisine and we would return there, as well.
