Dear Marc, We are sorry that you didn’t enjoy the food at Zari. We aim to provide a fine-dining experience, with authentic food, free from colouring or additives. As such, we would not consider ourselves in competition with the Downsman public house or Cinnamon. We thank you for your feedback though. More

There was no stolen napkin ring because it was under the napkin on the table where it had been all along. Shocking customer service, the food was lacking at best. a wolf... More

Dear Vicky, Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback. However, we were shocked to read your review. The event you recount is awful, but we cannot, to the best of our memory, recall anything like this happening at Zari. We were particularly shocked at the event involving a child, since we have strict rules among the staff about... More

I've only had takeaway from here, as I live close by, the food is delicious. More expensive than your average Indian takeaway but well worth it. The food is always ready quickly, and the staff at the bar are very polite, including nice little touches like confirming your order at the till and again when your food is brought out,... More
