We popped in for a drink and something to eat. My wife had panini which she said was delicious. The coffee was good too. Staff very friendly and was reasonably busy. Would visit again.

It was my birthday and I took my friends to have a curry for a first time and eating here put them off it. Service was horrible as well as the taste of the food. Ordered a jalfrezi and it felt like I it was a mild curry. Also ordered a sag chicken and sag aloo which looked displeasing and... More

Title says it all! Small portions, Extortionate prices and Rude management...(although i presume it was management as he did not have the usual waiter attire on). We visited a while back and just remembered to share my review now after looking at other restaurants in the area. Let's hope they have improved on the customer service.

Afriend of mine and daughters ( under 4) Popped in late afternoon on a Saturday as the girls were hungry. We asked the waiter how long the wait would be and he said the food would be served within 10 minutes ( which it surprisingly was :)) He sat us down where we asked to be seated as we wanted... More

Been past Zaza's many times on my travels but this was the first visit. Birthday party being celebrated by around 25 people on the table in front of us and a scattering of other customers. Waiter apologised for the birthday group but we didn't mind as they were enjoying themselves and weren't too boisterous, it was good to hear people... More

I visited this place with high spirits for having Biryani, but I was utterly disappointed to see that the restaurant served me chicken rice, tossed in a pan. I mean this restaurant should at least not call their chicken rice as Biryani. Not at all recommended if you want to have authentic Indian or Mughal cuisine.

Good curry. We had lamb kofta and butter chicken. And it was really good. The rice was nice and fluffy. The naan was a bit disappointing. Really greasy and not as nice as I get at my local Indian restaurant. Also the mint sauce was like water and lacked a bit of taste. The red spicy sauce on the other... More

Although not publicised to the western clientele, or mentioned in the travel publications, this is the best place for this cuisine that I know of in London, having lived and worked in the city for now 8 years. Exquisite, authentic and right up there (arguably better) than Tayyabs and Lahore Kebab House. Don't be misled by the sight of it... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Whitechapel
Whether you're here for its dynamic street life, world class galleries or famed curry houses, you're bound to be wowed by the uniquely cosmopolitan flavor of Whitechapel. Long gone are the days when Jack the Ripper stalked its streets. And despite his mysterious legacy bringing throngs of curiosity driven tour groups to its back alleys and otherwise serene garden squares, these days you're more likely to catch a cutting edge fashionista scurrying through its age old lanes than criminals of any sort.
