“Excellent service, first class food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

We dined at this restaurant as part of a business party. Depsite taking over most of the restaurant, everyone was personally greeted and tables attended to swiftly. The standard of food was first class - try the mixed starter selection & freshly baked nan breads straight from the oven - freindly, attentive service throughout. Good wine selection. Good value. Close walking distance from Hilton Deansgate.

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

We hired Zaika exclusively for a gala dinner, Bob and his team were welcoming, and the food was plentiful and tasty, especially given the size of our party. The service was excellent and the surroundings fabulous. We were extremely well looked after and everyone had a wonderful time.
We can highly recommend Zaika.

“Very enjoyable meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

Lovely meal, I was impressed by the quality of the food - very flavourful and pleasant. Portions a bit smaller than the norm but worth it to have a little less of something very good. Additionally, the staff were welcoming and the service was good.

“What a Gem!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013 via mobile

Heard mix reviews - order the chicken Tikka Masala, great to see they don't use red colouring in the food. And what a flavoured dish!!! Would really recommend this one. Excellent service - relaxed atmosphere - happy staff.

“RAW CHICKEN”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013 via mobile

Walking in I thought it looked OK, but very quiet I was yet to find out why it was so quiet!!! I ordered chicken tikka masala, my favourite Indian dish for it to arrive and me recieve something which was the colour of sick! I ignored the look and bit into my chicken... It was hard, and then opened it further to see it was still pink and very undercooked!!! I asked for some more chicken which had some undercooked prices to, I have never been to an Indian that has charged £2.00 for the try of dips with your poppadoms. This place is a rip off and a hazard to anyone's health!!!! DO NOT EAT HERE
