Went for their buffet option and we were not disappointed.. The restaurant offers authentic Noth Indian/Punjabi food. Although, the restaurant is very crowded (frequented by tourists buses) and we had to wait in line for 45 minutes for a table. Bottom-line: If craving for Indian food in Niagara, go for Zaika wihtout a second thought.

The food was good and authentic Indian taste. The Restaurant has a very good location and is walking distance from falls. If you have a sweet tooth then the dessert might disappoint you but the main course is very good. However, you should be ready to have long wait as there are crowds and queue there.

We visited Zaika for a quick lunch, before catching a flight to Chicago. Nice and cosy restaurant with a cheerful waitress. We were offered an option of buffet lunch or Ala carte and we opted the later. We ordered a vegetable, Dal fry, peas palav, roti / naan and bondi raitha. An extra rice plate was offered as a complement.... More

Its a nice restaurant. You get buffet all day. They have a good selection of Indian beer. Their buffet variety is limited but good enough for what are you paying.

We had a very helpful server that day. Unfortunately, when I walked in it was with high expectations. I had looked at the menu and expected a lot more. But they served a limited menu that day, and there was no buffet. As Indian restaurants go, it was good, but average, not exceptional. Great location though! Mango lassi was good.

I walked in with exceedingly high expectations. I had the dinner buffet. Staff was courteous. The food itself was ok. Flavor trimmed down to the average American. Their mango lassi was my favorite.

We loved this little restuarant so much we went both days we were in Niagara. The chicken tikka marsala was fabulous, choice chunks of white meat chicken in an amazing fresh sauce cooked to perfection. The staff were friendly, the owner popped in and again was very personable. We went a little earlier the next day and caught the end... More

We did the buffet, it was simple but perfectly assorted. Place was very simply decorated, but the food is delicious! I especially loved the chicken tandoori. The rice was perfect.

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.
