Had a lovely meal from here. Coming from Leicester i know a thing or two about curries and can say this is one of the best. Staff are friendly and the restaurant is well worth a visit. I will be back.

I love non spicy food and when it comes to butter chicken with coconut rice they are the best I have ever had! Lovely staff and the food is amazing. Totally recommend it!

We were quite impressed by this place, the restaurant was quiet for a Saturday night but the food (and portion size) were pretty good. The décor needs some attention, with the ceiling in particular looking shabby.

We have regularly ordered takeaway from Zaal but recently it has really gone down in service. Tonight is the last time we will use them. The portions that arrived were tiny, they barely filled two thirds of the plastic takeaway containers. My husband's tikka masala...More
