Good food, inexpensive and lovely staff. We were recommended a dish off the current menu but about to appear on the new menu - well worth it. The growing crowd of locals is always a hint you are on to a good thing.

Visited Zam Zam after a while. It's a fairly basic place as far as decor is concerned, and at one time aimed for the cheaper end of the market.You can take your own alcohol, which makes for a much cheaper meal out. The food was fine, tho my lamb was mutton(to be fair, when I asked he told me it... More

I am a vegan and spicy food lover. The first time I came to Cafe Zam Zam, I ordered a Vegetable Vindaloo (my preferred curry at the time). Sam, the restaurant manager, seeing that I like chilli, recommended that I instead try a Vegetable Naga - a curry cooked in Indian Naga chillies, which are much hotter but have a... More

We had a take away 2 nights ago and it was as good as eating in the restaurant, lovely food and lots of choice, my partner loves his curry to be extra spicy and when you ask them to do this they always deliver as requested.

We have used this no frills restaurant on a number of occasions over the years and it rightly built up a good reputation, but having recently visited with my wife, son and his partner, I was left feeling somewhat disappointed. We started with the usual poppadoms, but I found them to be somewhat lacking in substance and taste, almost as... More

Another great meal at Cafe Zam Zam last night. Sam organised one of his delicious authentic Bangladeshi Hake curries for us, spot on! If you plan to visit, try mid week, far less frenetic than Friday or Saturday.
