Having relatives living nearby we've been here before. This time was decent but I really do not see what all the fuss is about. Still eye watering expensive for the standard of food. The vegetable dhansak was decent and the tarka dhal thick and tasty...More

I came here with my family on a busy Saturday night. From past experience the food can be a bit variable and the same was true of this night. The poppadums were good and the condiments were plentiful. I had the chicken kashmiri which was...More

We visited Zara with friends. The food was very good and well presented, aromatic and not to hot. The staff were attentive but not overpowering. Nice little touch at the end of the meal was a shot of what tasted like Baileys and the usual...More
