Have eaten here twice now, excellent both times.

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... read more

Fantastic meal at the Zaika with family (7 of us) Staff very friendly nothing was too much trouble. Food is very fresh and flavoursome. Vegetable side dishes were exceptional. Highly recommend. But make sure you book as due to their popularity they get very busy!

If you want great food with exceptional quality of service, then come here. I have been here many many times and it fails to disappoint. The owner Kashwi has worked incredibly hard at getting this to be Ipswich's best loved curry houses and there is no restaurant in Ipswich that rivals the service and food you recieve here. Yes restaurant,... More

The food was amazing, the waiters are very efficient, cosy atmosphere, decor nothing special (not an issue just an observation) but very clean, overall a great curry house in a pretty good location, just be aware that the bar down the road can get pretty rowdy. Also we found it difficult to book, probably best to go in and book... More

I found this great Indian restaurant less than 200m from the Novotel in Ipswitch after reading previous reviews on Tripadvisor and concur with all the good reviews this place has received. The menu was extensive with a number of chef's specials which were new to me, the staff were attentive and the surrounding were comfortable. They were able to take... More

I hadn't been to the Zakia for a while, only because it's good to try out the other Indian restaurants in Town. I have to admit that after my visit on Saturday evening I shan't be going anywhere else! I had forgotten just how good the food and the service really are. Thank you
