Whether you eat in or out(takeaway) you'll not go far wrong with this superb restaurant. There are several others around, all of which I've tried however not meet this standard.

Thank you for taking the time to review zest on trip advisor. I am really pleased to hear about your positive experience of zest. I know this hasn't always been the case in the past. Although i accept tripadvisor is a wonderful platform to share your experiences and to provide feedback, it isn't a great way to communicate with the... More

Again the welcome, meal, service & restaurant were absolutely first class - didn't post a review on earlier visits as was unsure of the consistency of the standard, needn't have worried it was enjoyed by all of us & we shall be returning...

Haven't been here for some time. It had a name change. This is a typical curry restaurant. It is next to a garage and has plenty of parking spaces so if you need to top up the car as well. There was a short wait as you would expect on a Saturday evening. The food was quite varied with a... More

We went as a family of 5 on a Sunday tea time. 4 starters. 4 mains. A child's meal and two rounds of drinks. Just under £80. I could not fault them on anything. Service, food, cleanliness, value for money were all excellent. The portions are a good size too. We were served promptly and our food served quickly without... More

Been eating here for years, food is always good but recently the service just seems to be getting worse and worse to the point it ruins the evening. My most recent visit had a total wait time of around 2 hours (including waiting for the food then the bill which took 30 mins itself which is ridiculous) Some quick examples... More

Thank you for taking the time to share your feelings with the trip advisor community. We are not a fast food outlet, we generally allow an hour and a half for tables for two guests, two hours for tables for four guests and longer for larger groups. We have not set these guidelines ourselves but we have found customers requirements... More

Called into Zest for an unplanned evening meal with the family and delighted with my wife's choice of venue.The staff were friendly and helpful and the meal was excellent from the light and fresh poppadoms to the delicious chicken pathia curry which Is probably the best I have ever tasted . Will definitely be returning soon with all the family

Tonight at Zest I ordered a Passanda- "A north Indian classic dish cooked in a subtle mild mango flavoured creamy sauce" - and asked for it extra spicy. What I got was a bright orange, watered down, sickly sweet mango puree devoid of any spice or cream. I was unable to get a waiter's attention because the service was as... More

Hi Cathy I am sorry that you were not happy with your experience at zest and the dish you ordered was not quite as you wanted it. The passanda on our menu is described as sweet, flavoured with mango and mild, what you wanted was quite the opposite, the order should not have been accepted, i think the chefs tried... More
