Oh yes, the food was delicious, an awesome gastronomic celebration of ancient cooking traditions, of hand picked tea mixes for my chai tea. The freshest of spices flow from India, and an atmospheric blend of Indian Art, think carvings and an explosion of color but...More

We visited this restaurant twice recently. Each time - the first by accident and the second by choice, we sat at the bar. We had drinks and a small (shared) meal. It was exceptional. The drinks were well prepared and nicely presented. We even inspired...More

Great spot in Kensington right across from Hyde Park, with beautiful interiors. Birianis are excellent, top quality, dishes we tried were so tasty, will go again once I digest the amount of delicious spicy food I consumed.

We ordered four dishes and one of them was a little to spice for one of us, then they gave us another dish, free of charge. I will come back another time.

We live a short walk from Zaika and go often. It is a favorite to bring out of town guests, as the service and food always pleases everyone!

Nice atmosphere, service is excellent, not too expensive and tasteful food. Altogether a very nice evening and I heartedly would recommend this restaurant to other people. The menu is extensive, we had several courses in a nice "menu" - no disappointments at all.

My friend and I had a fabulous Indian meal at Zainadine. Our hostess suggested we try the fish trio appetizer, a chicken kabob, curry vegetables and the mushroom truffle nan. All of her suggestions were amazing. It’s a little crowded, but well worth it. Service...More

South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming
