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

Hands down, the best Indian curry house in Ross. Especially as there are some competition at the moment with the likes of Thai and Gurkha. Great value - if you want Indian food, I recommend only here.

Our waiter Johah is so kind,helpful and welcoming as are all members of staff. On the way home Ewan said "that's the best Indian ever I love the food" says it all,... More

ZamZam's used to be OK, and a place for a quick cheap mid-week curry, so I have been a number of times being a local. The curries are not great, but are typical of a small town Indian restaurant I suppose. So you know what you will get, and that will be good for most people I suspect... the BYO... More

This is by far and away the best curry house in England, great food friendly staff just a shame it's so far away. Will always go here when I need a proper curry fix.
