I enjoyed the atmosphere and food. I had the tikka masala with chicken and garlic naan bread. I can't really compare to other Indian restaurants in town but I thought it was pretty good. They have many choices to choose from and the staff were nice

The lunch buffet is one of the best in Bakersfield, they alway have great choices, although the only one you need to eat is the butter chicken. I don't know what goes into it but WOW it's good. They bring fresh cooked Naan as well. Makes for a great experience. You will enjoy it....Guaranteed!

This restaurant serves one of the best Indian food i ever had. Best stop over for dinner or lunch while driving back from LV to CA. Very tasty food at reasonable price, service and staff is also very courteous.

The Butter Chicken here is really tasty and tender. This is my first Indian buffet experience and it was worth the try. Though the choices on the buffet table is few, i should say.
These are some good food on the buffet:
Naan - flatbread: garlic butter, garlic-chili. Aloo gobhi - sautéed cauliflower with ginger and garlic.

Ill be back and try the food on their menu.

It’s so rare that a restaurant hits it perfectly on all counts consistently, but Zaiko hits the mark every time! It is tied for first place as one of my favorite restaurants in all of Bakersfield (the other being Great Castle for Chinese.) Although you wouldn’t know it by its modest exterior in an otherwise typical strip-mall, the interior has been designed beautifully. The ambiance is comfortable, peaceful, and beautiful with warm, simple, and classy décor. They have mixed contemporary design with ancient colors and motifs. The ambiance is matched by their fantastic staff who are informative, efficient, warm, and friendly….But then there’s THE FOOD! A M A Z I N G! Every meal we’ve had there has been exciting, perfectly balanced, with robust flavors and happy surprises. And just to confirm our experience, we are usually the only gringos in the place. Expats from India are at every table and there’s usually a large family celebrating something special. The portions are generous and a very good value. We have only ordered off their menu at dinner time but there is also a lunch buffet offered daily. Although you have other options for Indian food in Bakersfield, don’t bother going anywhere else!
