    Fabulous Evening. Great friendly welcome on arrival which is so important. AK really looked after us and is a great ambassador for Zaika. The food was Gorgeous. A really enjoyable evening prior to visiting the Royal Albert Hall which is a 10 minute walk way. If you like Indian food this is the one for you. I’ll be back!

    Felt very rushed and it was my sisters bitghday. Also had to pay for for having our own cake. Found that odd. It’s my second time. The supervisor is lovely. But I think prices and process could do with improvement. We felt very rushed so could not enjoy the food to be honest. 14:30 was the table reservation. But we were told over and over that the restaurant will be closin for kitchen orders soon. Not ideal when we were their on time. Just not sure if I will return due to this. Shame

    As always, very good food, maybe more spicy than before. This time the service was much slower than before, waited very long time for drinks, very long time for food orders, had to ask for the wine when starters had arrived... seemed that now there are a lot of staff not really trained and knew hardly nothing, but friendly.

    We have been visiting Zaika's since 2015, it has always been consistent, food, service. This visit was just as good as the first time, the food quality is always great, the waitstaff are exceptional, we have never had a bad meal, its one of our favorite restaurants to visit when we go back to London from the US to visit family, or even on a lay over travelling to Europe. Congratulations on being exceptional, and we look forward to our next visit.

    +ve The vegetarian food was v good/tasty. -ve My husband requires gluten and lacto free food and we had forewarned the restaurant. The waiter asked my husband to change his order 3 times despite initially telling us the orders were suitable for him. For a restaurant such as this, there was zero flexibility to alter ingredients offer alternatives, which was disappointing.

    Went back to this restaurant because of an excellent experience last year. My Wife was really excited and we took Two guests with us. However, when we asked for the Chicken Biriany Special that She'd really enjoyed last year, was told that " We no longer do the dish as it takes to long to cook". Some time later when we are choosing deserts sitting on the serving table are 3 Chicken Birianys. When we questioned the waiter. He said yes it was the said Chicken Biriany, but it was for the staff.........
