It's a very unusual Indian restaurant.

Sunday lunch filled with families and groups and an atmosphere like a pub. Waiting staff who are friendly and efficient but don't know much about the food. A menu that looks like many an Indian restaurant, but food which is unexpectedly good, especially the superb rumali roti.

Just wish I could make it for the Elvis night.

We love Zari's. The food is to die for and they are such lovely transparent people. Diners can see the kitchen and watch the food being cooked. Kids are so welcome and get a treat. xxx

We have eat here many times. The restaurant is modern. The staff are friendly and the food is lovely with a varied menu some of which is not often seen. Venison curry is one of my favorites.

Visiting Zaria was a superb experience from the moment we walked in. A very warm welcome from east European waiters right through to superb food. We eat frequently at Indian restaurants and this one is amongst the best

To be honest, we have been to Zari's many times, and have even done their cookery course. This time we went for their regional Thali night which they do on Sunday evenings, and on this occasion it was dishes from Lucknow. The idea is that you get a tray with everything on it. There are a couple of very small starters on the tray, together with some rice, a small naan bread, and the rest of the dishes are in small pots. There was a chicken dish and a lamb dish and both were very deeply spiced with warm Lucknow spices with just a little hotness. There was a mixed vegetable curry and a delicious dal. It didn't look a lot, but by the time we'd eaten everything it was plenty. At £13.95, it was not especially cheap, but I would still say it was good value for the number and quality of the dishes. Well up to the normal Zari standard which is very high.
