The food is exceptional, the service is brilliant and the ambiance within the restaurant makes the whole experience an absolute pleasure... Even down to the complimentary drink offered by management after our meal. There are loads of 'curry shops' in the area, but few (if any) get even close to the authenticity of the cooking or the efficiency, professionalism and... More

First visit to Zaika last night and we'll definitely be going back. The food was really delicious. We were served promptly and the staff were lovely. We were well looked after. We couldn't do the food justice as there was so much but we happily arranged to take the rest home. The atmosphere was welcoming and friendly. Definitely worth a... More

I have been here a few times with family and friends, it's a trusted restaurant for my taste. The chicken puri is a wonderful starter and quite filling. The choice of main meals is vast. I have had chicken tikka masala on occasion and also peshwari chicken, again very filling and tasty. Service was quick and front of house greet... More

Our large party all thoroughly enjoyed our experience at Zaika. Great food, excellent service, great attention to detail given we were celebrating a birthday! Our waiter was particularly attentive and friendly. Look forward to returning. Great for takeaway too.

Had another lovely evening at this wonderful restaurant. The staff are so helpful and the food is always first class. Resonably priced and a wide range of foods are available. I would not hesitate to book again I look forward to our next visit. Staff and the owner know how to look after their customers. Thanks for making our evening... More

We ate here early on a Friday night, without a reservation with a toddler! It wasn't busy when we got there but soon filled up and plenty of people had reservations. All staff very welcoming and supplied us with a table with plenty of room for high chair. The food was lovely - tasty, hot, flavoursome and good variety. My... More

Zaika is consistent on maintaining a bad reputation on the service and the behaviour of the staff. This most of the times overshadows some decent food they serve. However if you want to try some real authentic Indian food, then this is NOT a place to visit.

We have been living in Ipswich for 7 years and have been to various Indian restaurants here. I thought that it was about time we commented on Zaika - the restaurant we always return to. The food and service are both consistantly excellent. In all the time we have been to the restaurant the staff have been amazing - always... More

Top notch Indian Restaurant, never a poor meal, high quality from start to finish. The Zaika is a small tidy Restaurant knocking out 1st class Indian food. Never had a bad meal here, probably my favourite Indian Restaurant in Ipswich. The Lassi's are excellent, the mixed starter plates superb and the main curries of which I have tried a few... More
