After a grueling week without my beloved Indian food, I stumbled upon this gem of a restaurant! I made sure I went there everyday for the rest of my Orlando visit! Food was lovely, and fresh, and best thing is it (almost!) tasted like my mums :) Also very friendly service. Great job Guys!

We went for a late dinner when the hurricane was approaching, so this place was pretty quiet. Even so, the service was way above par. We talked to three different employees and all were wonderful. We just ordered simple salads, and they were fine. The main reason I am only giving this three stars is that the bathroom was not... More

My wife and I were looking for somewhere for dinner and drove by this restaurant in a strip mall. Looked interesting so we turned the car around and went in. As others have pointed out, the first impression is of a slightly run down restaurant but the staff were friendly and the menu looked interesting so we decided to give... More

This is a strip mall storefront- we had lunch during the week- the place was deserted - we had several curries which were fine but a bit bland. The portugese chicken got the highest marks. Sort of weird

A lot of options in the menu from Desi to American. The prices are reasonable and food is tasty. Staff is nice, I forgot my sun glasses at the restaurant and surprisingly got them back the next day.

For the price these guys are a rip off. I had a conversation with the owner about his price and he flat out said I have no competition. Food is very slow to come out. Taste isn't anything spectacular. Service is sub par. And hours mean nothing as we were forced to take our food to go since he wanted... More

We're sorry to hear that you think our prices are unfair. To be honest, that's not feedback we get very often, and we think our prices reflect the quality of the food we're serving. We hate that you don't agree, and we'll definitely keep your feedback in mind going forward. Thank you! -The team at Charcoal Zyka More

We visited charcoal zyka after reading a few tripadvisor posts. Needless to say we were not disappointed. Yes, maybe the decor isn't great but it's a pretty much standard to any small establishment in a strip mall environment and adds character. So this did not bother us one bit. Our server was polite and we were well attended too. While... More

It was our first time here and came on a recommendation. The place is pretty small and the furniture is quite worn and dated, but that was the only drawback. The staff is friendly, service was quick, and the foot was fantastic. Curry for days and that naan!!! We'll be back!
