It was indeed an excellent opportunity for our 3 member team to have couple of lunch and dinner in Zaika. We have enjoyed the Great flavor and Delicious Indian Cuisine food in this unique restaurant. Sweet and Salted lachi plus the Gazar Halwa- dessert, Papaya Juice etc. were perfect in taste. But you need to take at lease 20-30 minutes... More

Head here for very good Indian food in Addis. The starters are excellent as is the main course - the variety on the menu is excellent. Lots of options for vegetarians as well. The kitchen is an open kitchen - very neat and clean. The ambience is basic but comfortable. The staff is friendly - sometimes service tends to be... More

Foods was as usual very tasty, and their tandoori chicken is always nice. The waiters were very unorganized and confused it seemed like. They had a new meny on an ipad - also confusing and we were lucky to get a couple of "old style" menues. Restaurant recommended for the food, but not if you are in a hurry. Wish... More

Went there for dinner again, just because of quality of food but the experience was quite unsatisfactory. Food came cold, late, tasteless. Nan's were not cooked evenly. On that day we asked TV channel be put to sports as an important cricket match final was on. The staff made no effort to change the channel , though we were the... More

Two locals & I went there after trying in other Indian restaurants In Addis & found this to be better than the others . Tandoori chicken was good & also the Mutton curry. Overall it was a pleasant experience for all of us.

Stayed in the adjoining hotel and opted to go here for an evening meal and the food was simply superb! Best lamb I have ever had in an Indian restaurant anywhere in the world! Service was a bit iffy but the food more than made up for it, I would highly recommend a visit if you are ever in Addis!

I like Indian food and after reading so many good reviews I went to try. The food is not that great, bland and cold. After receiving the bill of astronomical prices, I was compelled to write this review. I eat flavoursome food at a fraction of the cost at other Indian restaurants in Addis.

We searched on trip advisor which is highly recommended one in Addis for an Indian food and found ZAIKA as leading. When me and my friend went there it was quite early evening and we were only one, slowly later got occupied. I wish to write my clear facts and will let others judge why I choose to give five...
