This is a great restaurant in a magnificent building on Kensington High Street. We were expecting an elegant Indian restaurant, Zarika surprised us with a new dining experience. The appetizers were wonderful, the salad very fresh, and the main courses unlike any we have tasted elsewhere including India. The service was delightful and the wine list very complete. It is well worth a tube ride and away from the bustle of central London. The cocktails and wine are expensive but worth it.

We were staying at the Milestone which is only a door or two away but ended up in Zaika when we looked on Tripadvisor for a decent Indian in London. It's far from the usual 'high Street' indian restaurant and we will certainly return. The waiter found it very amusing when we ordered a main course to share as our starter but this was only because we were spoilt for choice. The presentation of he food was excellent, the quality even better and the taste exceptional. It was a Monday night when we ate and quiet when we entered around 6.30pm but full when we left. Certainly worth a visit. It wasn't cheap but it is in Kensington and was far superior to the usual Indian.

...Zaika is tops!
Zaika's menu offerings run the gamut of Indian food and each dish offered is outsandingly delicious! The restaurant is conveniently located a couple of blocks from the High St. Kensington tube stop. We enjoyed Zaika so much that we ate dinner there twice during our three-night stay in London.
Not to be outdone by the food is Zaika's bar program. They have a wide selection of spirits and cocktails and wines.

Don't miss Zaika!

Zaika of kesington is simply delicious, we have tried the welcome menu and it has been a great experience. The quality of the food is very high, the wine list is good but is the service and the room that make the difference, it looks like you are back in the 1920 and don't forget the cocktail list simply amazing.

Really lovely food nice decoration good location but after spending £61 for 2 with only water in addition to the set 6 course meal, it was simply not enough food. Sadly, we ended up with a sneaky bowl of chips on the way home. Recommend it for the amazing taste but don't go with an empty stomach.
