I have always enjoyed dining at Zari and it has been a popular choice for a number of years now, Whether with a few friends or a larger group from he office, the service is always attentive and the innovative range of dishes on the menu lift it way out of the normal "Indian Restaurant" category.

When Zari's first opened it was a run of the mill Indian restaurant, good but nothing special. Then a few years ago it closed, they bought the shop next door, and then bang the best Indian restaurant ever was opened. It really is something special, it is located on Ifield parade, which i suppose is a bit inauspicious, but once... More

I titled it this way because I wanted to differentiate this from just a "curry". Here we had an Indian Meal and it was excellent, just superb. Poppadums to start and they were lovely, a couple of spicy and a couple of plain and super pickle tray, excellent presentation and a different selection of pickles to what we are used... More

A colleague recommended Zari, so this combined with TA views made us give this a go, so glad we did. The restaurant is in a very unassuming location in a row of shops but don't let that deter you. Once inside the staff are welcoming and the decor and ambiance lovely. There is a complimentary amuse bouche and the sauces... More

Had a lovely meal. The flavours and presentation were amazing. The service was lovely. My only negative point was it was overpriced slightly and had to pay 10% service charge for two adults and one children.

We have been to Zari quiet a few times. The food is always scrummy and the price doesn't break the bank. The staff and mangers are very friendly and good with children.

We actually stumbled across this place by accident when we were meant to be going to another Indian, but we enjoyed it so much we have been back twice since then. The food was excellent and they were very helpful, with suggestions as I'm one of those awkward people with an allergy (nut). They offered to cook a nut free... More
