Worth a visit

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.

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

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...

To coin a phrase below might be the best in Burnham but would recommend looking further afield. The service was poor the waiter was irritated that we ordered no side dishes, the food was cheap so OK it was value for money. When it came to pay the bill was left on the table, only for the owner to try... More

Very nice for an occasional Indian meal out. Staff always pleasant and helpful even when we have not booked. Always found the food good and prices right Have never gone on the Gourmet night but have found other restaurants less relaxing.

My partner and I visited the restaurant last night. We were staying just one night in Burnham on Sea so we hadnt booked and when we arrived it was very busy but they found us a nice table tucked out the way. Loved the ambiance of the restaurant and was a lovely atmosphere. We had the set course for £29.95... More
