We visited this restaurant while holidaying in the area, and were treated to a very pleasant meal, tasty and well presented. The decor is fresh and atmosphere friendly and warm. I would visit again.

I have used all the Indian restaurants and take-aways in Burnham for over 15 years and I would say Zalshah is definitely the best for flavour - however, considerably smaller portion sizes than the others. What is the point of a large container which is only half full? I take that as an insult. There is also a lot of... More

Passing through Burnam on Sea for the first time I tried this place as it was the first decent looking restaurant open at 5.30 on a weekday. I was very impressed. The restaurant itself was a typical,reasonably modern restaurant.the food and service were excellent and I would recommend the chicken tikka bhuna for a mild dish. I would definitely use... More

Well worth a visit but pick your time well, try to avoid buffet night in school holidays. Generally food is very good and does take away as well.

When we visit Burnham we like visiting here, The food is great and the staff look after you very well. I have always found the food to be prepared and cooked to a very high standard and is great value for money, May be better to call ahead and reserve a table as can be very busy in the evenings,

Over the years we must have been to the Zalshah a dozen times when visiting family. It has delivered on every occasion. The chicken shaslick is the best we have tasted and the lamb madras was excellent. Even the beer (kingfisher) was superb, a rarity in this cider-drinking town. Go and find out for yourselves. You won't be disappointed!

The food was lovely and flavoursome but the portions small (this maybe as we were there on a gourmet evening). For example if you opt for poppadoms instead of a starter then you only get one and if you have chicken tikka as a main you get 5 small pieces of chicken and no onions/peppers or mushrooms and it's not...
