Just finished a post-meeting dinner at ZARI with 12 sales colleagues. The team gave me rave reviews on the service and dinner. We also had excellent menu advice to suit the pan-european tastes at the table. Would definitely recommend. The boss had to pay so i can't speak for the final bill!

A few of my work friends had got together for an Indian meal as one of my colleges was retiring. I live in rustington and all my work friends live in and around Crawley so it was a fair old drive for the get together. The zari restaurant is well furnished and looks like no expense has been spared in... More

Zari restaurant is a bit of the beaten track for me as I normally eat in Crawley town centre when I am in town. So after having read a review about it on Tripadvisor I decided to give it a try. I worked out where it was and then walked from the Crowne Plaza to the restaurant on Ifield Drive... More

This is without doubt the best Indian food I have had. The food is exquisite with a kitchen in plain view for all to see. I was lucky enough to get a tour with the owner and the kitchen staff from various regions of India were spotless as was the kitchen. All is cooked fresh using no artificial flavourings etc....

The staff as always very very attentive and friendly, asking how the food was. The atmosphere was pleasant and the resturant decor is lovely. The toilets are... More

My first surprise was how big this restaurant is! It has a bright modern look and feel. Once inside I soon forgot I was in a restaurant on a local shopping parade. I especially liked being able to see into the kitchen. I was with a large party, we were in a separate area behind the main dining room. The... More
