Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stopped off here for a quick beer and ended up staying the evening and playing darts with the locals. A warm, friendly bar, not trying to be too trendy. We didn't order food as we had just eaten!

The food was tasty. However, I would be catious if I ordered the YAK burger, as it sometimes had a lot of fat in it. The other burgers were tasty, and fried rice was also tasty. The vibe and music were exceptional. The personnel was...also very warm and welcoming and the restaurant was cozy. I would defineyly recommend paying a visit. Prices are very affordable.More

Went here one evening and enjoyed the yak burger. Very helpful staff who substituted the bun for a bowl if steamedl vegetables. Also a bar with football on tv in one area. Lots of premier league memorabilia but very pleasant atmosphere.

The food was very greasy. There wasn’t much in terms of options of vegetarians. We had ordered pizza, sandwich and burgers with fries. It was okay. The ambiance is nice and you could opt to sit out.

Heard so much about this restaurant and when we reached there to our disappointment it was closed on Tuesday. So please remember not to plan your visit on Tuesday. I believe it is a must visit restaurant.

We really enjoyed the retro and laid back atmosphere of The Zone. There were few vegan options however (mostly just a veggie burger without half the filling). The lime Sosa and cold beer was good however, and the side salad option with the burger was...great.More

There are very less vegetarian options, and whatever there are- not worth it. The staff takes too much to process the order, I had to myself get up and walk to the counter to give the order.More

Excellent ambience. Staff had nice humor. The girl serving drinks immediately replied that the flavor of local breezer is Orange when we enquired. The man behind the table helped us choose the right vegan options. The food taste was world class and ultimately we ended...up having all that we could and tasty food made us skip our dinner. Lol. Lastly, the owner magically showed up at the property and gave us heart warming greetings while we were leaving. And the cost for three was very economical. There were other sophesticated restaurants in the vicinity but the homely touch is what human beings look forward to. Thats what I think made this No 1. Those who are fed up of indifferent attitude and artificial lip service from various Indian restaurants' staff across India can look forward for a heart warming surprise at The Zone. Good luck. Happy dining!!More
