Another visit into Sunbury on Thames and fancied a curry... wasn't disappointed!

Couple of Indian cuisine restaurants in town but this looked the better menu in my opinion. The manager went out of his way to find a table on a busy night. The Ghatti Lamb and the Chicken Jalfrazi were fantastic, nice and spicy. The kids were very happy with the Methi Malai Tikka, again very tasty.

High end curry house in my opinion, very smart and well presented. The staff are very helpful and happy! If in the area again will come back.

Only one slight criticism... in the toilets the Karma Sutra pictures are a little rude for young children I think! A little awkward!!!

Well worth a visit if you like spicy food.

Authentic atmosphere, lovely food an£ friendly service and then the beautiful food comes. A friend and I had a lovely two course meal - samosa and calamari starter and then followed by a duck curry and great lamb shank curry.
We shared and smiled - the conversation stalled a little so we could enjoy the beautiful food washed down with a good Nero d’ Avola from Sicily one of several nice wines available.
We came away very satisfied with all aspects of the food, service and menu on offer.

At the last minute I pleasantly recalled eating here a few years back so booked it for my son's 21st. Just a family meal which was lovely. The atmosphere is laid back yet vibrant and the staff make you very welcome. The food was imaginative and well-presented. Service was neither hurried nor slow even though the restaurant was fairly busy. It's hard to find a fault - maybe spice up the korma a bit more but I'm being picky now!. You will not be disappointed if you go here and we will definitely return.

This restaurant is about 8 mins by car from Hampton Court and about the same distance from the Sunbury junction on the M3. Parking can be difficult even though there is a council owned car park next to the restaurant which has lovely decor in an old building where the tables are split between the rooms. The food was different and truly a delight. However, the service was slow, very slow and the manager/front of house seemed not to be helping out. I have no doubt they would have sold more beer and more wine had they been more 'on their toes'. However, we can all have an 'off night' and therefore I will visit again.

We have visited Indian Zest on several occasions in the past and have always enjoyed the meal, service and the special atmosphere in this lovely restaurant. The high quality makes it feel like a special event. We've also made use of their excellent take-away meals on many occasions.
