Now Avatar, but still just as good

We've always liked Indian Zest, which has recently had to rename (some brand id reason) and were pleased to see the same staff and quality on our recent visits. We enjoy the Ghurkhali dishes in particular and although a mistake was made with our order, it was sorted quickly with a personal... read more

I love Indian food, but this place is like no other! The flavours are incredible, my partner and I visit Avatar every week and we always come away amazed by the quality of food and service! The manager is especially friendly. Highly recommend this restaurant. It's not just Indian food, it's an Indian experience.

A really good quality Indian Restaurant that really cares about the food they serve. Uses local suppliers and good quality ingredients. Similar to high quality restaurants abroad, not the traditional curry take away houses in UK.

Staff and atmosphere is great but it's quite expensive for the food, which is average. Them seem to chuck loads of onion and coriander in / on everything in the hope it makes it fancy. Serves good Indian beer and lots of wines but there's a better Indian in harborough.

Indian Zest enjoys a good reputation locally but I wasn't that impressed. Yes, the food is prettily presented and has different touches and garnishes, but the actual flavour is just the same, or even not quite as nice, as "traditional" Indians with flock wallpaper and Brabantia plate warmers!

We have been regular vistors to the Indian Zest but usually at about 7pm. Tonight we booked table for 8.30pm. We were asked to wait and given a drinks menu. Nobody took our drinks order or gave us any indication about how long we were expected to wait for a table. The restaurant was busy and it appeared the food... More

Highly recommended to us by a friend. Went with son's, wives and partners, all regular partakers of Indian food in various parts of the country. Pre meal nibbles were very basic lacking imagination, as were the starters, but the biggest disappointment were the main courses. We have never had food served up on soup plates at any of the numerous... More

I've been to Indian Zest three times. First time was really good. Second time average. Third time very average. We were sat by the window, so we felt like fish in a bottle, but that's not the restaurant's fault. Given we had a really good experience we thought we'd give it another go. It was not bad; far from it.... More

I agree with last review. The food is excellent but we went on Saturday night and perhaps they need more staff at the weekend as they seem fairly full on! However cannot fault food or value for money. They could do with a bigger car park!

Have been here a good few times now, the most recent being 4th October. Every time that I have been the food is great, nice curry and a great "Innovative" menu too and all at a reasonable price. However when it is busy (ie Saturday Nights) they often seem to be understaffed and a few times now the service has... More
