I visited Zaika last week with my boyfriend as a birthday dinner for him, having previously booked I explained we are vegan. Once we were seated a waiter told us what items were vegan and also that the chef was going to make a vegan...More

A good place for conversation and ambience, traditional and tasteful deco, unfortunately spoiled by waiters who kept on interrupting us mid-conversation, rushed us during ordering and the first two courses, and slightly pushy and pressuring about ordering more drinks and which drinks I should order....More

My experience at Zaika was amazing, I tried the butter chicken and was one of the best served in London that I have so far eaten. Staff was good and amazing service.

Amazing food, very good service. The Manager Jiten was awesome, very attentive and welcoming. Couldn't ask for more

The service is fast and very attentive. People tend to clatter about a bit; the restaurant could do with a carpet. Also some of the revolving chairs are very irritating and should be dumped. This is nitpicking; I am ashamed of myself.

South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming

Yes they serve halal food
Hi I'm planning on coming for dinner during the week at some point. I saw your menu online and was wondering how much it would cost for two people? We aren't too much of big eaters so I was enquiring to find out if the A la carte menu would be better or the 3 course ? How much would it cost for two people for the a la carte menu with service charges ? As I have been to some places and they haven't mentioned the extra charges so we end up paying a lot more than we wanted to spend. Help ?

This is a high end Indian restaurant and priced accordingly. Yes it is expensive but it is not the same as the average high street Indian which you may find are more reasonably priced.
How much would someone need to spend on average for a 3 course meal
