Excellent food carefully prepared and served with enthusiasm. Many Indian guests eating there - good sign. We weren't disappointed. Will go again

We have been several times to this great restaurant and have never been disappointed. The food is excellent as is the service, recently I had a birthday party there with a few friends, they had a balloon on the table and a special cake for me at the end. The price was very reasonable given the number of Cobra's we... More

Best Indian ever! We thought we would give this place a try just from reading fantastic reviews and I must say place delivers 110 %. We were looked after from the second we walked through the door and served fantastic authentic Indian dishes freshly prepared to order. Zaika special is a must try! Great job guys! We will definitely return... More

This was my second visit to the restaurant, The Hyderabadi biryani remains faultless and tantalizing to the Platte. However, bit disappointed with the rest of the order. if one goes there, please have the biryani-remains their best dish.

There are several good Indian Restaurants in Ipswich, but we think this is the best for eating in food. We went there in December, taking over all of upstairs for a colleague's leaving do. The buffet meal served up was excellent, and the service very good, plenty of food choice available. Last Friday, 4 of us tried to make a... More

Ok it's another Indian restaurant review from me but that's what I feel I'm good at. I'm in Ipswich this week so tried Zaika Indian Restaurant for my evening meal. I looked at a different restaurant on my way out as it was closer to my hotel but seeing that it only had 3 stars for hygiene I gave it... More

My friend and I popped in on a spur of the moment for a bite to eat. It was mid week and around 6pm but already it was getting busy, always a good sign. Very friendly and welcoming. We weren't massively hungry so shared a starter, pilau rice, saag aloo and chicken tikka jalfrezi. All cooked beautifully, no pools of... More

We went here on the night before Valentine's Day, and although they were about to close early to get the restaurant ready for Valentine's Day, they allowed us in as long as we were ok with finishing within an hour. The staff were extremely friendly and the food was nothing short of spectacular! The sheek kebab had a good kick... More

Absolutely incredible. We have been friends with Mac for a while and decided it was about time to pay him a visit at his new work place. So glad we did. Such amazing staff members and great food. Lovely atmosphere and not to crowded. They also have an upstairs space for more diners as well. The food menu is really... More
