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...

Zaika is a good quality north indian restaurant in Dreamliner hotel.The food is always good - I am vegetarian and there are lots of options. Palak paneer is particularly good as is chana masala, bhindi do pyaza... so many things! Prices a bit expensive for Addis - between 100-180 Birr for the dishes but in my opinion worth if for...

I have eaten Indian food all over Africa and this is up there with the best. The atmosphere is not remarkable but the dishes are consistently tasty and delicious. The staff is attentive and the prices are reasonable. Go and enjoy a lovely Indian meal!

The food is delicious and very clean. The atmosphere is not very cosy but you're not going there for the ambiance anyway.

In the nearly 3 weeks that I've been in Addis, Zaika is by far my favourite restaurant in Addis Ababa. Ive been here 3 times so far, and will certainly be back. Everything that I've tried has bee excellent. My personal faves are the dhals and the mutter mushroom. Their new general manager came from India, he imports Indian spices,... More

Varied menu and excellent food. Ate there twice. Did not try desserts. Went with a friend from India who vouched for the authenticity of the food

Love this place. The food is excellent! We had the okra and the mushrooms and both were excellent. They were out of the black dal which was disappointing, because I've had it before and it was great. I'll go again. The only part which makes it difficult is that it's not near any minibus route that I could find, which... More

Food ok but pricey for Addis. Service poor - forgot appetizer, then when reminded and asked to hold meals, one appetizer arrived under cooked and the other cold. Meal arrived a minute later. Ordered gin and tonics - not in menu - bill arrived and they were $8 plus mix and we're not full pours. Staff argued about under pouring... More
