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

This is one of the worst meals I have ever eaten and most definitely the worst indian.if this place was in a curry hotspot such as Birmingham, Glasgow or Yorkshire it would not survive. 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

We booked a table for 4 last Saturday. Having lived in Crawley for many years, during our recent visit, I was surprised that restaurant's was on the shopping parade's. Wasn't like that in my day, there were only just shops. But, Wow, have things moved on or what !!! And all to the good. It was about 50% full when... More

Visited last night with my other half on date night. The restaurant has a nice ambience, staff very attentive and freindly. Food was very very nice, you can watch the kitchen from the restaurant area, slightly over priced but you get what you pay for. Great place for special occasions. Would definitely recommend.

My husband and I had been to Zari a few years ago and were really impressed, so we went back yesterday for his birthday. Things have changed hugely! The staff are lacking knowledge, every question we had for our waiter he had to run off and someone else would come back to answer. The chutney served with the popadums was... More

Really good Indian food - lots of choice and reasonably priced, especially if you don't have their 'specials'. Service good. I visited this restaurant many years ago and the staff were dressed in saris and traditional Indian clothes - none of that this time. Shame - it did add give you a sense of place and made it feel a... More

Had a fantastic meal at zari on Saturday for my birthday and we found it hard to fault! We have dinned in many Indian restaurants over many years but we have never had an Indian experience like this! The food was packed with flavour,style and presentation along with extras like mini tasters,truffle type chocolates and even a coffee type shot... More

I went for dinner with my two sons on Friday 1st August and had the best curry ever. Actually I have been here before some months ago and had an equally good meal. The food is superb and the service excellent, very attentive. I would highly recommend this restaurant and will definitely return.
