very good fusion

The best part of the this place is what they does with Indian dishes. This fusion is very good. When I went in there there was waiting going on but within no time we got our table. The service was above average and the ambiance was pretty decent.

We ate here early in the week, so a weekend meal with more turn over might be better. Some types of food in a buffet can't compare to freshly cooked, especially when it sits in a warmer for a while. Things like dal are fine, but battered fish suffers. Some dishes can be quite spicy, and some of them had... More

Excellent buffet menu and many choices for vegans and non vegans. Food was very tasty and had many choices which would make this a monthly event if lived in Edmonton. Certainly a place that you will enjoy for all ages.

nice restaurant with good service but the food isn't great. I had the buffet the first time which was great but another visit I ordered the tikka masala and it was not very good. I don't think I would go back.

There are a variety of good food dishes to choose from the buffet that tend to be spicy. The desserts were plentiful and tasty including heated gulab jumon, rice pudding, etc. The naan is not served to the table but one of the buffet selections which means it's not as fresh. The decor is a contemporary look that doesn't have... More

Zaika is a neighborhood Indian food restaurant. They have recently added a bistro to their location. Buffet is always a good choice with many items to choose from for the undecided. Items are refreshed constantly keeping food fresh.

My girlfriend and I tried Zaika over the weekend and we were quite pleased with the whole experience. We had never really tried indian food before so we're not quite sure how authentic the food was but what we do know is that the quality of food was very good. We had the buffet for lunch and there was a... More

We come here every couple of weeks - it would be more often but really should have variety. I love this place. We have the buffet when we eat in or grab a take out. The food is fresh, a good variety & the servers so very helpful. Always a good atmosphere. Prices are also really good.

My wife and I dined at Zaika twice. Once in the evening and the second time for lunch. The buffet selections were almost identical both times and both times the experience was sub-par. Butter chicken with sauce straight out of a tomato soup can. Tasteless fried fish. Goat curry that was pungent and chewy. The only item that was average... More
