    For valentines day they sat us in the back. Which didnt have any pictures on the site so I didnt even know that was a thing. They had plastic tables and chairs set up and the ambience was fair. Service was as basic as good be and food was good but overall wasnt a vibe. Just a normal dinner, nothing special.

    Food was fine, nothing outstanding. Butter chicken was good, but not enough flavor. Mixed grill was very good, except the bone in chicken.

    My friend and I had a wonderful time at Zayka! We came earlier than our reservation and were able to sit immediately! Our server was very accommodating and we enjoyed everything we ordered from wine to food! There are so many great gluten free options and everything was wonderfully fresh and well prepared. I def recommend the mulligatawny chicken soup as well as the bullet naan. The best part of our experience besides the food was jamming to the fantastic music they had playing in the dining room! We truly had the best time from start to finish and we’re so happy we chose this place! 10/10 — must try!

    Overall great experience. The garlic naan fresh out of the oven was amazing. Tika Masala was so delicious! We ordered medium spice and it was just right if you like a spice. Ambiance was nice. Photos make it look a bit more fancy but it’s still nice and comfortable. The staff was excellent- super attentive and kind.

    We ordered our food and drinks. We ended having missing drinks or person forgot to bring them out. Food order got messed up and we had dishes that were not brought out. The lobster masala was overcooked and we were missing a bowl of rice. I felt like my 1st experience here was horrible and I really started out being excited to come here along with bringing my family /friends from out of state. Next time I knew to take them to Lime & Lemon because you get better service!!

    My coworkers and I went to Zayka because it’s close to our salon. It was so cute all the servers were nice and accommodating. The food was AMAZING! So yummy. We were shocked it wasn’t more busy on a Saturday night! We are definitely going back!

    I specifically asked if they dish was spicy before ordering —I was told that it was on the milder side and upon it arriving me and my guest both tasted it and agreed it was definitely on the spicy side— when I requested to exchange it out for another dish I was told I would have to pay for a new dish. Service was extremely slow though the restaurant was not packed that night at all I saw maybe four groups total. I probably won’t give it another shot.

    This was our first visit Zayka. We got there just before they opened, but they invited us in and took our drink orders. Because we got there early, it gave us a lot of time to look over the menu to decide what we wanted. We started off garlic naan which was warm and tasty. My wife ordered the Tandoori Shrimp. She asked if came with any sides, she was told no, because it more like an appetizer (it wasn't listed with the appetizers and wasn't priced as one either), so my wife also asked for a side of rice. The waitress looked at her strangely and said it doesn't normally came with rice, so my wife said she would just have the shrimp. I ordered the Rajasthani Laai Maas, which is goat in a red sauce and a big bowl or rice. I also asked if they could spice it some. The meals came our quickly and were right off the grill so they were hot. My wife dish actually DID come with a small salad and a small portion of potato. It had a little spice to it which my wife enjoyed very much. My meal was HUGE, it came out in two bowls, on with the goat and one with the rice. After eating just a few bites, my nose started to run, which means for me it was the perfect spice level. Overall we enjoyed our meal, the big draw for me was the goat, I've never had it before so wanted to try it out. The only real negative was the waitress just seem very helpful when my wife ordered her meal. But other than that everything was good, fresh and hot. Very much worth a try if you enjoy Indian cuisine.

    This restaurant was recommended by a friend of mine (who is from India) who claimed that this was the best Indian food. I had high expectations going in, but not high enough …Zayka far exceeded my expectations! Everything was well executed, from the multiple people greeting us and serving our meal to the packaging of our leftovers. The waiter was very attentive to our needs with suggestions from the chef. The food was incredible and the presentation made it more special. We were there to celebrate a friends birthday and it made for a momentous occasion.

    Delicious lamb vindaloo, butter chicken, and mango chicken curry dishes. The vegetable samosas were not greasy like other places. The naan was fresh and made with real butter.

    While the food was lightly and well spiced, there was no flexibility to switch out shrimp on the tandoori mixed grill with lamb. The rest of the mixed grill was 3 chicken items. Ordered a half chicken tandoori plus what was a full order of lamb… way too much food. Saag paneer was ok, nothing special, garlic naan was fresh but not very flavorful. Prices are high, service is slow. Will not return and recommend going elsewhere.

    Had reservation for Valentine's dinner. Was very busy but were seated quickly. Unfortunately we were seated in the function room/buffet room that does not have the same ambiance as the main dining - lighting was very bright/harsh, with NASCAR on TVs around the room?? Not the romantic dinner I was hoping for. Since several of us were seated at the same time, service was spotty. Couples seated after us (but nearer to door) had their orders taken before us. Waited a bit too long for our drink & food orders to be taken. When the food did arrive, our starter was not included. No matter, the portions were quite large so the starter would've been too much. The food was wonderful! I had opted for a mild Paneer Tikka Masala and my husband a moderate Shrimp Tikka Masala - both were very flavorful and the heat level right on point. Was thrilled to see Peshwari naan as an option and enjoyed it very much. Will definitely come back on a less busy night to try more, as they have a very large menu.

    I was there for a Sunday buffet and would have thought the selections would be interesting and varied. However, there was only one or two entrée items that were really appealing. Most everything was pretty mediocre, and not everything was labeled.

    It was over priced for mediocre Indian food. They forgot to bring our naan until we reminded them 15 minutes later. And it wasn’t busy, service was poor.

    The food was amazing! There were four of us and we each ordered a individual that was tried by all. The servers were nice, but a little slow with water re-fills. We had reservations for 7:30pm on a Monday, and the restaurant was mostly empty. I will definitely go again and see if it is a bit busier on a weekend.
