The staff was good and understood the kind of food you would love to have. Order Dal Makhani and Panner Tikka Masala.

We stopped by after visiting the Yale Art Museum, which is just down the street, for the Sunday buffet. We felt the buffet was fairly priced, and the food choices were ok. Not a huge selection, but tasty enough we all went back for seconds, with room for dessert.

Zarkoka is by far the best Indian restaurant in New Haven. Their food is fantastic, their waitstaff friendly, and their atmosphere relaxed. I love to take friends and family here when they come to visit, and everyone agrees that it is a wonderful experience all around. Plus they do take-out and delivery!

Seems like the only place in town that serves a full thali. Thali is an assortment of different dishes served with rice and indian bread (naan). There is also a sweet dish served along with it.

We arrived at prime dinner time last Friday night and were the only guests there. The staff seemed desperate and we felt sorry for them. The breads were stale--really stale! Made us concerned about the quality of entrees, but they seemed okay. Not great--just okay. Frankly the leak was overpriced for the size portions. Finally another table of guests then... More

If you are looking for a thali, a dish with several curries, dessert, rice and naan, Zaroka is the place to go!! I believe thali is served only here among all the indian restaurants in new haven. The portion sizes are good and the presentation is amazing!

Not really impressed with this place, but certainly not the worst place around. The meals themselves were tasty and of decent size all while at an decent price. The breads, however, were not fresh. I ordered a garlic naan and it lacked that softness and spongy texture which led me to believe it had to have been either a day... More

In my humble opinion a pretty average American Indian restaurant offering buffet style lunch. The food throughout lacked both heat and the aromatic spices were tempered. Not by any means a bad restaurant but I certainly doesn't stand out.
