Great food, superb service, excellent value.

We chose Zaika as the venue for a works night out and were NOT disappointed. Our party of 12 were all made to feel welcome and we were served initial drinks and Poppadum's in good time. Our waiter was very attentive and nothing was too much trouble. The highlight was the food. We had a variety... read more

I have eaten at Zaika for many years and it continues to improve on service and food quality. We are moving away from the area in a few months and it will be a shame as we will struggle to find somewhere as good.

I was in Ipswich for 2 nights on a work related trip. Stayed in the Novotel which was 3 minutes walk away and this restaurant was recommended by a local work colleague. I went in at 18:40 on a Tuesday evening and there was one table occupied by one person. The staff were initially unsure if they could fit me... More

If your after a curry then look no further than here. The waiting staff are amazing, nothing is too much trouble and they will often make things to order if not on the menu. First class restaurant!!!

This is the best Indian restaurant in Ipswich. Great service. Really friendly and accommodating. Food was first rate. I especially liked the starter which gave you a good mix of all the things you want: Samoa bahjee and kebab. Great place to eat

When staying in Ipswich, as we do several times a year, and fancy a curry, this is our go-to restaurant. The food is so good, the menu varied and the service both friendly and efficient. On our last visit I tried something new to me, chicken badshahi, and my wife had an old favourite of chicken biryani. Both were excellent... More

Superb food and service as always. This time we shared our experience with our 89 year old in laws who were just as impressed with the quality of the food and the polite, friendly and efficient service as we were
