Never had a bad meal in this friendly family run restaurant - always my go-to if I want to take friends from out of town into Ipswich.

The food was good. Starters were small, but the main course made up for it. There was a bit of a wait for the main course, but it was worth it. Good service, nice restaurant, good experience.

another great experience and yet again nothing was too much trouble. This was booked as a belated birthday present for my partner and made for a great experience. Many thanks for a wonderful evening and yet again fantastic food. This really is our favourite Indian restaurant and just a pity it's not local to where we live!!

I was looking for a change of Indian takeaway and thought I would give Zaika a go. I live just outside their 3 mile delivery limit at 3.5 miles so I emailed them to ask if they would deliver. The response from, what I believe was the owner, was immediate and confirmed they would deliver. I got the sense from... More

We visited Zaika on a busy Saturday night and had booked in. The restaurant is clean and quite compact but very well located in the town centre. The staff were very helpful despite being a little disorganised. One server took our poppadom and drinks order. Then somebody came back to take our starters order again as they had forgotten, before... More

My first indian meal in Ipswich having moved from London and I can honestly say it was the best Indian meal I've ever had. Chicken was tender and perfectly spiced. Service was excellent.

As a party of four, we arrived at Zaika quite late (about 10.15pm) on a busy Friday night. Despite this, we were seated straight away and both our food and drink orders were taken promptly. Our food arrived in good time, and every one in our party was impressed with the quality of the food and the size of the... More

While visiting Ipswich for business on two occasions recently we ate here. Once was a very busy Tuesday evening and the other a much quieter Monday evening. I would suggest that booking ahead is a good idea. The range of dishes available is great and the quality as good as I've eaten with dishes being full of subtle flavour not... More
