Zaika Indian Cuisine takes pride in serving the best Indian cuisine in town. The variety in taste and flavor of Indian food is simply overpowering. We have all day buffet's during lunch and dinner everyday uptil the middle of october.We also offer a la carte menu which lets customers choose the level of spice from super mild to super spicy on a huge variety of dishes.we dont claim to make extraordinary food but we do simple food right and fresh.Our outdoor patio is a perfect place to enjoy beers from india and around the world. we also offer a decent variety of wines and have a full liquor bar.

Good Indian Food right near the falls

I always get the buffet when I go there. You are able to try a bunch of different foods. Very good, make sure you get the naan! I love the Chana Masala and tempura vegetables.

In USA specially at Niagara Fall, Zaika Indian Cuisine attract all Asians specially Indians and Pakistanis to enjoy meal with full stomach after so much walk. Menu is fully Indian but food quantity is small as compared to price. But it is nice to taste your own in Niagara.

We dined here bc of the high TA rating. We are glad we did! We were in the area on a weekend trip. Niagara Falls, NY was pretty dead on a cold windy January day. There was only one other party in the place. It was very simply decorated, but the he food is delicious! I especially loved the chicken... More

We have been looking for a 'go to' Indian restaurant in the Niagara Region (both Ontario and New York State). Now we have found it! This is not a fancy restaurant but the food is excellent.

I have travelled to Niagara falls twice and both the time I have had lunch buffet at Zaika and was completely satisfied both the times. I selected this based on the reviews on Tripadvisor and after my first visit, I did not feel the need of trying another Indian restaurant second time. My wife left her Jacket there second time...

We were the only diners in the restaurant on a Thursday evening, so no buffet, they are also on winter hours at this time of year. However the service was excellent and the food just as good, we shared wonderfully spice samosas and pakora to start, followed by chicken kadai, and chicken makhani, served with a freshly made naan bread....

No, I'm not from India but I lived in New Delhi for several years and got hooked on Indian food (and tea) there. I'm on my second national tour doing programs in schools this year and unlike last time I'm looking for Indian restaurants. Last time I was fearful of having something too heavy or not well prepared when I... More

I found this buffet spread better than other Indian restaurants at Niagara Falls. We went there for 2 meals over weekend. Chicken Tandoor(with buffalo sauce I guess) on first visit was very good. Chicken biryani, Paneer dishes, Kheer(sweet),Roti was good. The staff is also friendly and courteous. On 2nd visit they had closed the restrooms due to some work which... More

My husband and I had some time to kill in the Niagara Falls tourist area and there were a TON of Indian restaurants in the area. Someone at the front desk at a nearby hotel had recommended Zaika and we were not disappointed. The lunch buffet was $13.95 pp and had about 6 vegetarian options and 3-4 non veg options... More
