Ordered the special for 2 at £22.95 off takeaway menu for delivery. Charged nearly £50 and tandoori was inedible. If we had ordered off menu it would have been £35! and.foosubstandard

Have visited Zarda numerous times and each time the meals have been outstanding. The food is always perfectly presented, hot and the portions are large. You can get cheaper curries elsewhere however you get what you pay for! This is simply the best curry house...More

We enjoyed a meal recently and would happily return. Staff and venue both excellent. Only small mark down due to feeling the prices were higher due to not having competition in that area.

A cracker of an Indian Retaurant with a mix of typical and innovative dishes. I recommend the signature starter - the lamb chop. Excellent service in nice surroundings with a nice pub (The Walnut Tree) just up the road for a pre-dinner drink.

The food was faultless and service was excellent. Staff are very friendly we initially went for a quick meal but ended up spending most of the evening there due to the tasty food and good company
