We went to this lovely spacious restaurant for Sunday lunch and chose the "Zain's Khazana Menu" which is a variety of "taster menu". The food without exception was excellent with a wonderful balance of spices. The service was welcoming, attentive and courteous without being overpowering!...More

If you look for Indian cuicine with a large spectrum in flavors but not necessarily very spicy, you will enjoy this restaurant. The interior is well designed in a imperial style. The food lived up to expectations. Cooked and served with pride. All over a...More

I attended a business dinner at Zaika during a conference last week, and the food was fantastic! The menu was pre-arranged but everything they served was fantastic. Would love to go back again soon with a smaller group to experience the full menu.

Staying in the Kensington area I did not see many highly rated Indian restaurants with the exception of this one. So I walked in without a reservation early in the evening, and was able to be immediately seated. The service was attentive and the setting...More

We live in London part-time and enjoy our Indian meals. Have passed this restaurant many times after a walk in the Hyde Park yet never thought to dine there. We were spending our last evening walking through the park and it was bit late yet...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

Hi I'm planning on coming for dinner during the week at some point. I saw your menu online and was wondering how much it would cost for two people? We aren't too much of big eaters so I was enquiring to find out if the A la carte menu would be better or the 3 course ? How much would it cost for two people for the a la carte menu with service charges ? As I have been to some places and they haven't mentioned the extra charges so we end up paying a lot more than we wanted to spend. Help ?

This is a high end Indian restaurant and priced accordingly. Yes it is expensive but it is not the same as the average high street Indian which you may find are more reasonably priced.
How much would someone need to spend on average for a 3 course meal
