“None of the item was good, Not recommended”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

None of the item from the buffet was fresh neither tasty. I have been going to this restaurant since 2 years. But not anymore. I had purchased 3 buffet each $ 19[for dinner], None of us like the food. Its not at all worthy. Very bad experience.

“Now i am a Raving fan of Ziaka”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

If you are looking for a place which offers Authentic Indian/ Pakistani cuisine and also offers a modern atmosphere, this is the place to go. Staff is super friendly and welcoming. Variety of food they have in Buffet is amazing. They play awesome East Indian music with perfect level of volume (They don't play hindi movie songs, they play nice soothing Indian music)

You can realize instantly the food served in Buffet is fresh and well cooked. Located in area of Edmonton which is kind of on outskirts of city which is very close to highway (this helps you in avoiding the traffic in city).

Lots of options for vegetarians and for those who love eating meat and chicken (they also offer amritsari fish in Buffet) And for my Muslim friends they offer HALAL also !

Each and everything thing they offer is so authentic and perfect. They also have a nice sports bar which in terms of standard is very much similar to any leading sports bar chain in Canada.

“Nice atmosphere”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Average selection of food in nicely appointed restaurant. Service was very good. I was conscious of the fact that hot food in buffet was not very warm; doubt it met industry standards for microbe safety.
Would probably order from menu rather than eat from buffet next time

“Taste ok, but limited selection.”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

Went to the dinner buffet with a larger group.

Given the complaints in these reviews about bad service, I think we were fortunate because our server was quite nice, but while making the rounds I overheard someone being impolitely directed to find their own table by another server.

It's a very noisy place, and my group was partially to blame for that, but it was also so dark that it was a challenge to see the food. That is not an exaggeration, there is something like a 35w bulb for each chair suspended at least 2 meters above.

I think I've tasted everything to excess in just one visit, so I don't think I would go back. For a little more I could go someplace with complimentary drinks and loads more variety.

Total cost for two, after 15% gratuity and no drinks, was $54.40
