Our guide recommended this restaurant to us as it was near the Oberoi where we were staying and much better value. It was easy to find and, as we arrived at about 7:30 on a Sunday evening very quiet. The food was excellent. Price was about 3000 INR without drinks.

Six of us were treated to an excellent exquisite lunch. We had Thai, Chinese & North Indian food and they were all equally good. The staff were friendly & helpful and we had their full attention as there were no other diners. We can recommend Zaranj to each & everyone of any taste. Excellent!

The last time I visited this place was 2 years back but the memory lingers on… For the excellent food, service and ambience!! To be frank I had always sat on the Jong’s side and tried their oriental fare along with the heavenly Zaranji Rann and have been delighted with it! This time was going to be a rude shock.... More

A very good restaurant, Nice, clean, licensed - and best of all a variety of the best Indian kitchen ... go for a lunch, and a break from the hectic and very hot streets, where traders of all kinds try to sell you everything ... very good and spicy food

I have eaten at Zaranj several times. My experience as far as food is concerned, has always been the same. Other things have given me different experience at different visits. Let me first talk about the food. The food is simple outstanding. It is served within reasonable time. For those who are from kolkata, would find it to be costly... More

Heard lot about this restaurant before but somehow could not manage to experience it. Yesterday had a dinner, and I seriously wished that I never went there. Interiors immediately need a makeover, service is below standard.but more importantly, the food, it is really awful though they are charging exorbitant prices. Tried tandoori chicken, moorg baroodi and lachha paratha. The chicken... More
