Lovely Dinner & lovely service. Had a starter and two mains. Everything was really good and the service was very attentive. Keep it up!

Great Indian Curry House well away from the tourist areas so low prices and excellent service. The range of dishes is good, encompassing all the old favourites. Chef does not have a list of house specials though. We found the service fast and friendly even...though the restaurant was full on a wet Wednesday evening. And English was spoken by all who served us. If you’re looking for Indian food in Berlin then do come here.More

My family and I ate here whilst on holiday in Berlin. We eat Indian food regularly and the biryani that I ate here was the best I’ve had. All the dishes were delicious: fresh, well spiced and clearly made with excellent ingredients. The service was...friendly and generally very good. The prices are also very reasonable. If we lived here we would definitely return. Highly recommended.More

The food here is good. The menu is just the same like any other Indian restaurant in the area but the quality here was satisfactory to me. Outdoor seating is nice, next to a park and not loud or crowded. Staff are nice and service...is relatively fast. Prices are as one would expect in the area. Nothing very special to expect, just a good place to eat!More

I visit Zaika almost every time I visit Berlin. The food is simply amazing, the staff is friendly and if the weather is suitable one can easily sit outdoors and enjoy a great meal. The only disadvantage is that there is a restriction on the...kind of card (credit or debit) that can be used.More

Every time I go there, I enjoy their food (especially Mango Chicken). Sometimes the waiter is unfriendly and ask for tips. That's why -1. Overall it's a good restaurant.

Average service with a very friendly Nepalese man but the food was pretty bad, from starters to main dishes. Got 2 vegetarian dishes and were quite bad. Ordered a mango juice and also it wasn’t anything special. Find a good Indian is hard in Berlin...and this just further confirmed this. In one simple word: avoid. In few simple words: save your tenner and go to a kebab nearby to get one, it will still be bad but at least you saved some cash.More

It was a solo visit for dinner yesterday. Location was perfect - 10 min from Alexander Platz via M2 tram. Away from touristy places. Excellent decor. Ordered Paneer Jalfrezi and garlic naan. The waiter double check if I really want to order that. Yes, it...was super spicy but excellent. Naan was mediocre. Service was robotic. Outside of a 5-Star hotel in India, I rarely encounter excellent service in an Indian restaurant anywhere in the world.More

A very nice overall experience, went here with the family on a public holiday make sure to make reservations beforehand. Friendly and prompt staff, good food which can be catered to the Western (German) pallet. For starters, we had the samosas which had a higher...bread to going ratio than I would like and the chicken tikka which was ok. For the main course, we had the lamb biryani with raita and both paired well, the chicken makhani which was nice though a little sweeter than I would like, alu gobi was good, mango chicken which was again quite sweet and the favorite dish was the kesari paneer. For drinks they do have Kingfisher beer and a decent mango lassi. You also get a shot of spiked mango juice at the end of the meal which is a nice closer. Would definitely go back again.More

I visited late on a Wednesday evening. It was fairly packed so obviously very popular. Nice ambience with seating in and out doors. Friendly and fairly attentive staff. Food was good but not great. I ordered a extra hot lamb madras and got exactly that....Good flavours, good heat and good sized cubes of lamb cuts. However what was very disappointing was the barely cooked garlic naam bread - despite my request to make it very well cooked. Too much garlic on it as well. Average price and nice coffee to finish it off.More

Prenzlauer Berg
No Berlin neighborhood has undergone a greater change
than Prenzlauer Berg. The artists and non-conformists
that defined the district’s intriguing subculture in
the 1980s and 90s have been replaced by a young, hip
crowd that frequents the many cafes. Where there were
once run-down houses in the shadow of the Berlin Wall,
there are now designer shops. Beautiful old homes have
been modernized and renovated, and on Sundays,
