We visited Zari on a weekday evening. The ambiance is pleasant, the restaurant larger than expected. We each ordered a dosa, a large crispy rice and lentil crepe filled with a spicy potato mix and served with a bowl of spicy lentil soup. To this we added a kebab sampler as well as a grilled fish starter. Upon taking the... More

We eat at Zari's regularly and it really is the best Indian restaurant for miles around - be adventurous. We always have the dosa's which are beautiful, with samba and coconut chutney. It's certainly not your run of the mill ' chicken tikka' establishment - far more eclectic. We love it

We usually visit Zari once or twice a year as a family to celebrate birthdays/anniversaries as it is in our opinion the highest quality restaurant in Crawley. Lately we have also been treating ourselves to takeaways from Zari too. Every Sunday we plan to treat ourselves to a buffet at Zari's but usually get up too late. Today we made... More

We go to this Indian restaurant on a regular basis. The food is cep tonal and never disappoints. The good is not cheap, but reasonable for the quality of food. Drinks however are expensive for this type of restaurant.

We returned to Zari after many years as a group with children and 4 adults. The layout of the restaurant has changed with the bar at the entrance and the dining area behind it. We had ordered a variety amounts of veg/non-veg food along with starters and desserts. The food was of average quality, I have had better in Crawley.... More

We had the sharing mixed starter which was 1 prawn, a small sheek kebab and a bit of chicken. Not near enough for 2 and priced... More

I am sorry to hear of your disappointment . You had mentioned that if we were in a curry hotspot such as Birmingham, Glasgow or Yorkshire we will not survive. I would like to inform you that we are precisely not your run of the mill curry house that dishes out all the curries from a single curry gravy. We... More

We have eaten at Zari a few times as it is so close to our house. The service is good and the food is delicious. My one criticism would be that they don't serve the traditional style dips with the popadoms. They can also be a bit keen to top up your wine glass so be careful you don't end... More
