We have tried few other Indian restaurants in this area, but nothing can be compared with Zaika for its flavours. The flavours are amazing. Value for the price. Zaika is our favourite takeaway Indian restaurant in this area. It is a simple restaurant which pampers your taste buds to come back again.

We've loved Sunny's wonderful tasty food for ages. But tonight we discovered they now deliver via Eat Now! We always loved to visit or get take-away. But we moved a short distance away from Beauy a couple of years ago so it wasn't so convenient to visit any longer. Imagine our delight when we found they delivered! Lovely as always,... More

Have been many times, but not in the last 12 months or so due trying other Indian restaurants that have opened or changed hands Went back this week, found it still to be good & consistant standard. Like most restaurants which provide hot/spicy foods a couple of visits normally required to get the heat right. Zaika seems to have a... More

Wonderful Indian food and we regularly visit here. It is consistently good. Great flavours. They have a tandoor oven. The only downside is the smell from the oven is quite strong so it makes your clothes smell quite heavily afterwards- but aside from that it is great. Byo.

This is absolutely the best Indian restaurant in the Bayside area. That's not to say it's perfect. The only negatives? Zaika, unlike most Indian, do not supply complementary Papadums on arrival - a sad economy that sets an unfavourable comparison. The second issue is the amount of chicken that comes with the Chicken Tikka - it's a pretty small portion... More

We recently dined with our Vegan friends at Zaika. The staff were very accommodating of our friends dietary requirements and the food was delicious. The restaurant is not modern but has a cosy atmosphere.

This is one of our regular Indian treats. There is a wide choice of Indian curries and dishes but you cannot go past the Butter Chicken. One serve is never enough for our family. Curries cater for varying degrees of spiciness. The service is always friendly and efficient. Great for take away as well. Dimple is very up to date... More

We get take away from this restaurant all the time & are never disappointed. If you can eat in I recommend it as the food always tastes better for some reason but this isn't taking anything away from the TA. The flavors are amazing & the food is not to heavy or oily which is good to know. They also... More

First time to this restaurant and I was pleasantly surprised by the quality and service. The portions were fairly typical of Indian restaurant, but the difference was that there were plenty of pieces of meat in the curry dishes and they were good cuts of meat (not fat and bone like many other places). The service was casual but efficient... More
