Dined for the first time at Zaika on their lunch buffer on July 3rd. The restaurant was very busy for lunch today and for good reason. It offers items like Tandoori Chicken,Chicken Tikka and a lamb dish with rice, peas,and spices. The hot bread served with the meals was exceptional and the pitchers of water served at the table are... More

Extremely good authentic cuisine. The food was served quickly and the staff was very nice. Great choice on the menu. Especially a large selection of vegetarian options(hard to find often).

Food quality is good but poor service and wait time is very long...if ordering fro.menu then you kust have patience and things will flow from kitchen one at a time...weird...staff is under trained...check our for yourself... this hotel is just capitalizing on taste and quality (from menu..did jot try buffet)...nothing else..i will give 2 out of 5 to Zaika...

I have been to this restaurant twice during separate visits to Niagara falls. I have tried both buffet and ordered from the menu. I recommend avoiding the buffet and ordering from the menu. I enjoyed the taste and the service was good. Definitely will visit again, if I have the option to order from menu.

Of all the places where you find Indian food in NIagara falls, this is by far the best Indian restaurant that I have been to. THe food seems fresh everyday, and trust me that is the most important thing you would want from the indian restaurants in NIagara. The others I have seen, just heat the same stuff from last...

It is crowded, try making advance reservations and be on time. There are many Indian options near Niagara but this one has better testing food. Walking distance from the Falls.

We only ordered two indian dishes for take-out. There was some confusion at the entrance as to who was the order taker. Employees, mostly ladies, were moving across swiftly. I did not know whom to give the order. I lost 10 minutes in this. Then a lady took my order. The waiting time was 40 minutes ! I came back... More
