“Excellent food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

Beautiful food. Went early so were the only people inside but to be honest even busy the service is excellent.

The food is wonderful, although the portions are vast meaning we needed a doggy bag for the biryani. Highlight was the stunning Chilli Duck, spicy, rich and decadent.

Great as ever, recommended.

“Good food, lovely staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014

Had a lovely meal here a couple of weeks ago. They had new staff who were a little unsure of a couple of things but were so pleasant and did everything to make the evening enjoyable, sadly some of the customers were not so pleasant. Still it didn't bother us too much and the staff handled the table well (even though some of them were quite rude) in the end they left without any further bother.
I would certainly go back to Zumar as the food was great and the service although a little whacky!, was really very good. If you like Indian food why not give it a whirl?

“Our trip from birmingham for some wonderful food !!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

Hi all,
We would like to thank Isaac and the very friendly staff for a lovely evening from Richard & Amanda ( whose birthday it was ), not sure what all the bad service reviews are about, the food was gorgeous as always, tandoori chicken starter followed by chicken madras& fish jalfrezi. We would recommend zumars to anybody who loves a good Indian meal.
Thanks again Isaac for a great evening
Richard & Amanda.

“Friendly, great food but time for some change”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014

We eat at Zumar regularly because the food is good quality and the staff are all lovely, especially Jules. The chilli dip is delicious and there are some really different chicken based meals on the menu, I especially recommend the Nawabi and Reshmi Murgh. We've been coming since it opened and will continue to come regularly but would love to see a few changes: 1. the lights are a bit bright, it would be nice if they would just use the wall lights rather than ceiling lights for a better ambiance, 2. the menu has been the same for a couple of years now would be nice to see some different food on there. But regardless we still love the food and the staff so will continue to come!
