Sesame Naans were incredble. Service was very good. Place is beautiful. Food was good and different from other Indian food. Not the best Indian I've had but definitely worth a shot.

Having been to quite a few of the Indian restaurants in Crawley I did not have high hopes for this place as Crawley has some gems, and some disasters too - from Blue India, Jai Ho, Cinnamon, Ram Club and Downsman. Flicking through the menu I thought it was over priced but thought let's check it out. Having never seen... More

I have not found a place that does Lakhwani Biryani for a long while. What a great dish and fantastically made here. If you are a South Asian food fan, this is definitely a must. Just try to avoid the late evening rush!

Lovely atmosphere, FANTASTIC food - most locally sourced, great service & FAB cocktails! I have NEVER been disappointed visiting here. The menu is refreshing with things like venison on the menu alongside the more 'usual' curries & meats. The Zari is more than that though, try popping in for cocktails & some Indian bar snacks - far nicer than sitting... More

We have been coming to this restaurant for a number of years now, we normally have a take away on a Friday and then every so often we eat in. We have always had great food and great service here, and tonight was no exception. All the waiting staff and the chefs did an amazing job, the food was brilliant... More
