We ate here on Saturday evening. The place was packed out. Very good lively atmosphere. The service throughout was top notch. We shared some poppadoms, then a mixed starter, which was delicious and served with some lovely dips. After a nice break between courses, I went for the chicken makhani with prawn rice and a keema nan. The main dish... More

We tried ordering the first time from Zaika, worrying about the authenticity of the flavors. But to our surprise, the Hyderabadi dum Biryani was actually very nice. It had the right flavors and came with Raita, Chutney and Papad!! We’re now a regular customer of Zaika. Try the Madras dishes for some spiciness and the Biryanis for nawabi flavor. It’s... More

My husband and I fancied a meal quite late on Saturday, about 10.15 p.m. We hadn't booked yet the staff greeted us in a very friendly & welcoming manner. They quickly set up a table for us and we enjoyed a lovely meal. Thank-you to all the staff.

This is the 1st time I had been to Zaika and overall I was very impressed by the variety of food. The starters are small but freshly prepared. However, the main courses more than made up for this. As we were a party of 8, we were all able to sample various dishes. All were delicious. Although the organisation could... More

The best curry house in Ipswich. Great service and good prices. Couldn't ask for anything else, knowledgeable staff will educate you on anything you are unsure of.

We popped in to Zaika on a rainy day having been to the cinema. Admittedly, we went because a) it scored well on TA, it was close to the cinema. It was reasonably early (just after 6pm-ish) and we were first in. The service was friendly and the food was excellent. By the time we left the place was full... More

I live on the other side of town to Zaika but I could easily call it my local Indian. Whether I sit in or take away, it's my restaurant of choice and here's why I went three times last month: I have tried many Indians over the years and never really been a fan of it until this place was... More
