Wonderful food. Great service. Great vegetarian options. Beautiful presentation and great seasoning. Fresh and high quality. We visited when the place was completely gull, but they still managed to get us an amazing meal in just 15 mins. The only downside is that the restaurant...can get very noisy. One of the best places to eat in Stavanger.More

Very good dishes with sauce. Good and relatively quick service, for reasonable prices - not cheap. I would go another time.

We ate on a Saturday evening at 7pm. Place was really busy. We were early, and had to wait (our fault) but table was ready at the agreed time. Could see from the clientele that this was popular with people from nations where they know...their curries so had high expectations and was not disappointed. Food had great taste. If you want native Pakistani/Indian spiciness then need to ask, otherwise it will be “Norwegian spicy”. Service was prompt. Nans were excellent. Roti was thicker than my preference though. Be aware that at time of writing Zouk does not have an alcohol license, but don’t worry the Mango Lassi is good. Who needs a beer? Book ahead. Good taste. Great value. Parking right outside as well if driving. Going back for sure.More

Nice place with open kitchen. Big menu with a lot of options. Great food and friendly staff. We ate ther on friday evening, constant rush from 20 to 22. Recommend to sit in front of the kitchen and look how chefs are working.

We were lucky to visit the restaurant on its opening day. The food was excellent as always and the staff were super friendly and helpful. We wish the owners all the best with their new restaurant. We’ll be back😀.

Very good food and pleasant service.They will soon move to larger premises, and I looked in and it is promising. To-day more a take-away, but optimistic for next adresse.
