Food was amazing, evening spoilt by a big table.

The food and service was amazing. The décor and the building are lovely. But as a couple our evening was spoilt by being sat in the small up stairs area with a large party. Maybe just something to think about when doing the evening's seating plan. This would not put us off going again. But meant... read more

The food was good, nothing amazing - just good. No complaints at all, but I wasnt screaming from the rooftops about it. The restaurant itself was very full - a testament in itself - however because of this, it felt cramped. The staff were lovely and friendly and accommodating and we were seated right away. Will be returning again.

I've been here many times, it's in the town centre and the food is amazing. Would probably say the best Indian restaurant in Ipswich. I've always gone on a Friday and Saturday night and I would recommend booking a table as it is usually full. The food is not oily at all like other Indian restaurants around. The popadoms with...

I would recommend anyone to try the food at Zaika. They make the food to your taste and spice which is satisfying. The staff are the most friendliest and polite I have come across in Ipswich. I would be shocked if anyone got a bad plate of food from here. Thank you Zaika for the lovely food and service. See... More

Lovely food. Unlike other Indian and Bangladeshi restaurants where the food all seems to be a slight variation on the same massala, the dishes here are all cooked with individuality and excellence. I recommend the chilli massala for anyone who likes a bit of kick and depth of flavour.

We were recommended this restaurant and although we booked very last minute, they managed to squeeze us in. From the minute we arrived we were treated like absolute royalty. The restaurant was packed (always a good sign!) but despite this, the service was impeccable, friendly, professional and unobtrusive. The food was superb, really some of the best Indian food we...

Ended up here purely by chance and it was fabulous. A vast selection on the menu. The waiter (Ronny) was extremely helpful. Service was prompt although we didn't feel rushed. I will defiantly return and highly recommend it to anyone

I’ve only just started using trip advisor and at the moment have only reviewed accommodation. As soon as I decided to review a restaurant I knew this had to be my first. I’ve been lucky enough to travel all over the world and try some fantastic food. Those who know me know I am very passionate about food and I... More
