Our return visit to Zaika was worth it. This is still one of the best Indian restaurants and buffets in Edmonton. Great selection from the delicate battered fish , to traditional pakoras in a curried yogurt sauce, to curried goat, butter chicken, paneer, and a dozen other treats. Each dish has it's own flavour. This is important because many buffets... More

Excellent everything. Food, service, decor, drinks, parking, water, washrooms, ...... Veg friendly. Newcastle Brown on tap. !!!Extreme risk of overeating!!! They have an afternoon buffet that is very good and an evening buffet that costs a little more but is superb. If you arrive around 4:00 you are in between buffets and must order from the menu which is no... More

Visited Zaika with my partner and two of my friends. It was recommended to us as lovers of Indian. We were not disappointed. We all had the buffet and it was very good. I especially appreciated the range of dishes as butter chicken and tikka masala are not my favorites! Daal was awesome! Would return next time we are in... More

I never knew that Indian food is not thickened with grains. I was able to enjoy all of the buffet items except things that are deep fried. Ask your server and they will bring you fresh hot roti (made with chickpea flour) and dig in just like with naan. So good and after eating there twice I have had no... More

This restaurant is becoming our " go-to" for Indain style food. The atmosphere is calming, and the servers are there, but not overwhelming. Price is very competative, but the quality of the food is the best!

When this place first opened we always ate here...loved the food. lately when we have been going the food is average and don't feel satified with the food or service. it takes a while to be waited on. Do not like the idea that the take out menu food price and the sit in food prices are different. We would... More
