Went for their Sunday buffet & no complaints, however, the takeaway was probably the worst I have had. Horrible flat, leathery naan which they insisted was traditional, threw it away, orange chicken tikka masala with raisins in it, managed half of that then threw it away. Just awful.

Zari looks like an average take-away joint from the outside which means that you are in for a pleasant shock on your first visit... it is like the tardis inside. The food always exceeds expectation, fabulous quality and an amazing choice. Not the place to go for a cheap curry but if you appreciate good food at a reasonable price... More

Lovely food and great service. May not be the cheapest around but worth the extra money. They also do take aways.

We selected this indian restaurant based on reviews on this site and weren't disappointed. We went for the set menu which had good choices some of which were more interesting than the norm. The food was tasty and good value. A good choice if like us you are staying in Crawley at a loose end the night before flying from... More

We were flying from Gatwick and staying in Ifield. We looked on Tripadvisor for restaurant suggestions and Zari came out near the top. People raved about the curries but although very nice were not as fabulous as suggested. The surroundings are very pleasant and the service was very good. The food was a little pricey and a 10% service charge... More

Came here for a Mother's Day treat. The restaurant is fitted out with great style and taste. There's a large bar area, outdoor seating and modern kitchen visible through glass. It's far too smart for this rough end of Crawley. The food was ok, but nothing out of the ordinary. There was a choice of a la carte or buffet.... More

This has to be one of the best Indian meals I've had. The food was absolutely amazing, service was good and fast and the restaurant was busy (which is always a good sign). The only complaint would be that some of the staff don't understand what you're ordering and aren't very personable, but that's a small thing that can be... More

A warm welcome, friendly staff and one of the best Chicken Vindaloo's I can honestly say I've ever had !!!! It was so authentic, fresh and zingy. Everything prepared in front of you through a window. Amazing experience, amazing food and efficient service !!!! Not to be missed
