The journey to the Zaika is interesting. if you're staying on the coast side of the city (we were almost opposite it) then it seems to be about a 5 mile taxi ride to cross Sheik Zayed Road - the main highway! Fortunately taxis are cheap. The Zaika is in the Murooj Rotana Hotel near the Burj Khalifa. Once there you are whisked from the hotel in a golf buggy down some short side streets in this modern complex to Zaika - it's a laugh! Weather permitting, ask to sit on The Terrace and enjoy the greenery, bridges, pools and stream and the views of the biggest tower in the world. The staff during our visit were friendly, helpful and efficient. There was no hurry but we were not forgotten about or neglected. The food is plainly presented (by some UK standards) but flavourful and more some. The Tikka Chicken Salad (not the name on the menu) was smoky and tender, the Chicken Bhuna with Chick Peas was nutty, not too hot and full of spicy flavour. I've never tried Chicken Tikka Masala in the UK but thought it would be a safe bet in a City that has a 30% india/Pakistan population. It was a good choice. Typical Tikka flavoured chicken in a fruity, sweet and spicy hot sauce. Beautiful plain boiled rice complemented the flavour perfectly.
