Wandered in, decided on set meal for 2 and walked out full and satisfied for less than £30! Poppadums, starters, mains, side and naan. All nice and fresh, and the place was heaving on a Monday evening. I'm not surprised!

So my friends and I were quite hungry after a long day's of work, so we decided to get a nice curry to end the long Friday's work. I ordered a nice lamb biryani and it tasted splendid; possibly the best ever I've tasted. My friends and I had a good time and overall, it was a nice and pleasant... More

We stopped here whilst a quick trip to Ross on wye and I'm very glad we did. We were lucky enough to come on a day where they run a fabulous 4 course meal of your choice for only £10.50 per head!! The portion size was not compromised by the deal in any way and you can taste the fresh... More

You can't beat a mid week meal at zam zams, the food is always good, the service is great and they are very accommodating should you want something a bit different, midweek specials are great value for money . Would highly recommend

Great curry, even some of the hot ones are more tongue dancers than they are things room regret I'm the morning. Recommended by the locals as the best curry in town and lived up to its billing. Great food, good service and excellent pricing. Oh and bring your own beer!

I have been eating at Zams zams along with my family for a few years now and it never disappoints great food at the right price with really good service nothing fancy and bring your own drinks so you cannot go wrong with a three course meal at under £12.00 a head Cannot recommend them enough

A warm welcome by the owner, this is an unlicenced curry house, so take your own, or drink their soft drinks. There was a special deal of several courses from the whole main menu, I had this deal and it was very good, but my wife (not so hungry) had her normal Chicken Madras, my meat was wonderfully tender, hers...

We have been to Zam Zam's a few time and the food is always excellent. Fantastic tasting curries with great fresh flavours. The interior is a bit sparse and you must remember to bring your own alcohol as they don't have a license. They have special meal deals Monday through Wednesday. Not a place for a romantic meal but if... More

We used to go to this restaurant often, and as it has been a while I was so looking forward to a nice curry and a beer and we were hungry after a long day gardening. I suspected standards had dropped as soon as our shop bought popadoms came out with no pickle! So no spice! Just sweet sauce, yogurt... More
