We ate here last Saturday. I had the Lamb Rogan Josh. Wow what a delight. If you like Lamb try this out, lots of meat and an excellent sauce. Good service

This was not booked but a last minute 'do you fancy and Indian meal tonight' kind of conversation. Based on previous trip advisor reviews we decided to just turn up. Although I think there was new staff being trained, everyone was welcoming and friendly and we were seated comfortably. The order for drinks was taken and food ordered. For a... More

Stopped here on our way to Gatwick airport, having done a very quick search on TA. The location, is a little off putting, however once we were inside and eating, all was forgotten. The staff were very attentive (Ali in particular), and the food very fresh, tasty and quickly cooked and delivered! It was a shame we were in such... More

I took a large group having only booked an hour before. Most were visitors from oversears who had never previously had a curry but were treated here to really exceptional food. Every single person said afterwards how much they had enjoyed their meal.Our meals including a couple of drinks each and a side-order, main meal and rice/naan and coffee came... More

The place is for people who dont know anything about restaurant business. How they take your order. How they serve you. The manager is the worst manager in uk i think he should try to take some experienced waiters he should try to chsnge the toilet seats and he should try to register evrey cash bill. If you pay cash... More

I heard about Zari through friends and decided to take my wife for lunch on her birthday. We ordered Hariyali kebab for starters and it was so tasty that literally in 2 minutes we finished it. The chicken was cooked so soft and probably the best starter we have had ever. We ordered biryani and couple of veg curries that... More

Truly exceptional food, absolutely not your usual curry-house, but you know that when you check the Tripadvisor reviews and look at the menu on-line. This is fine dining with Indian cuisine, but you will find the more typical and popular dishes on the menu too. Very comfortable surroundings and order taken promptly after we sat down. I won't go into... More
