Very good

Had a wonderful meal here this weekend. One of the best Indian meals I have had in a long time. Service very good too. The only negative is that the restaurant is quite small downstairs (didnt see upstairs) and felt slightly cramped.

Each time I have been to Zaika they never fail to impress me with the quality of food and the level of service received. I would definitely recommend the pizza naan! :)

The food is very delicious and you can chose from a big menu. Very friendly staff. You might want to call in front since its quite small and they seem to have many reservations.

Took a friend who was visiting for the weekend and we both loved it! The food was of excellent quality and very tasty and delivered very promptly - no sitting waiting too long for the next course! That said we did not feel rushed in any way. The waiters were attentive; my only area for improvement (and why I rated... More

We eat a lot of this type of food, yet this meal blew us away. Exquisite, beautifully balanced flavours. The menu contains some more authentic dishes and some unusual ones as well as the more traditional. The service was unfailingly courteous, helpful and efficient.

I took my football to this excellent Indian resturant last night. 22 diners were looked after with popadoms and dips followed by a selection of freshly cooked starters (chicken tikka, onion bhaji, lamb shami kebab and samosas). Main course was done by allowing us all to select a main and rice with a selection of house chosen vegetable dishes. I... More

No other Indian meal I've had compares to Zaika. You could tell the food was freshly cooked and not dry and reheated like some meals I've had from other establishments !! I had the massala which was full of flavour considering its not a highly spiced dish . The staff attention was fab and not over bearing . Loads of... More

Having been an indian food lover for over 30 years we recently discovered the beautiful little gem that is Zaika, the best food I have eaten ever in an Ipswich Indian restaurant, the quality is next to none, staff are very very polite and attentive and both times we have been here we have come away feeling as though we...
