Thanks Almira & Sadik and team for a fabulous birthday party. Just a quick note to thank the restaurant for hosting our motley crew yesterday and going over and beyond the call of duty to make the evening so special. This restaurant is one of our firm favourites (the firmest maybe!) and we hadn't been in a while, so it... More

Friends & I visited the other week and Zari was a wonderful experience. Staff were friendly and very welcoming. The food is always great, it's the delicious authentic Indian cuisine. My favourite is the King Prawn or Lamb Dhansak washed down with a few pints of cobra. Love this place and most of all I love their food 👌

We haven't been here since October yet as soon as we walked in the staff recognised us and welcomed us warmly! We turned up at about 5.30pm on a Sunday and the restaurant was empty but busy with takeaways. We took our 2 & 5 year old as a special treat and they were treated like royalty! They loved watching...

I went into Zari and had such an exceptional level of service. I was impressed with the food choices. You have the classics, but also the twists on well known dishes. I was also impressed to learn that they use local produce. A great bonus! I have been a few times, but the last time I went was exceptional. The... More

That's My boy!! Yesterday I had a fantastic experience. The chefs were precise, helpful, enthusiastic and friendly. I learnt more in those three hours than I have ever from reading recipe books or watching TV shows. The fact that such an experienced and knowledgeable chef, together with his able assistant chefs, is cooking alongside you is such an invigorating experience... More

I booked a culinary curry masterclass for my dad for his birthday. I would like to say he has said it's the BEST birthday present ever!!!! 3 hours of learning how to cook his favourite food the authentic way. I have just tasted the dishes and having eaten here in the past all the dishes were superb. Great experience, amazing... More

Good fantastic....atmosphere terrible.....staff seem scared as constantly watched by owner.when something is done not to his liking,that member of staff is told off on the resturant floor instead of being taken to oneside.definitely puts an edge on the evening.next time I will order from the take away menu.
