This place is quiet a find. The place offers a very homely ambience unlike any other restaurant. The food is amazing and absolutely at bargain prices. Anyone who craves for Mughlai food in Chennai should come here. Top Tip: Try chicken afghani its unlike any other thing you will ever have anywhere.

This restaurant will evoke a mixed bag of emotions.... great tasty food v/s poor ambiance and only cash payment. The fact is that the food is great especially for those craving for north indian flavors.... However the semi-open air sitting area is disappointing, so if you can brave the mosquitoes then this place is a must visit

The restaurant sits just round the corner from EGA theatre.. opposite Right Hospital. The ambience is not the typical closed AC hall like, rather an open space letting you feel the aroma of the barbecued food, in contemporary styling. The place is surprisingly pleasant even during summers. Although they serve limited and some of the best Veg dishes, the menu... More

I have been to this place so many times and I have made sure that I have recommended this place to everyone who asks me for a non veg restaurant in Chennai. This is not a very upscale place, but good food is what you are looking for then you will surely not be disappointed. The Afghani Chicken is a... More

I visited th Zaika on the top Floor of Le Waterina. It is one of the best place to have a Candle light dinner and I can bet any couple will love it. The only problem however is the food, which is too oily and just average taste. The beer at least kept me going. However the view of the... More

Have eaten just once at Zaika. Didn't feel like visiting again (see that's the problem in serving average food!). I can't remember what I ate, and whether it was good. In general, it's an avoidable place, unless you are desperate to shell out hard-earned money on eating average stuff!

Located right next to Beverly Hotel, this place serves very good parneer tikka butter masala, chicken briyani rice and butter nan. We have travelled all around india, and definitely found the food here to be one of the best that we have tried so far. Price are reasonable too!
