Our office recently relocated to the Summerwood area, and Zaika has become one of our favorite lunch haunts. The buffet is always fresh and well stocked, and absolutely delicious. Service is attentive and friendly. Pricing is at the upper end of what once would expect to pay for a buffet lunch though. Expect ~$35 for 2 diners without coffee or... 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

If I do Indian food, it's gotta be buffet for the simple fact there are so many different dishes and curry flavors one must try! I wasn't disappointed in this buffet at all it was delicious and the naan was awesome, my favorite that night was the curried goat;)

I am a frequent visitor at the Zaika Bar and Bistro. I remember one of my very first encounters. I had lost a wager. A wager that I already knew I would loose just so I could bring my co worker here and have lunch on me! Since then, I've had the pleasure of trying a variety of foods from... More
