Wanted to say well done to all the staff for a brilliantly executed night! We came for 7pm sitting, it was packed out, food came out in great time, no long wait between courses but didnt feel rushed at all. Really enjoyed ourselves. Thanks

We stopped here for a meal on our way home from Walkden. We enjoy a good curry and I also enjoy a hot one, so always order the likes of a Vindaloo or similar. Most Indian Restaurants I have found have never been as hot as I'd liked even if I asked for it to be extra hot or 'Authentically... More

This is by far my favorite Indian restaurant in the area. During the week you can get a table without booking but weekends you need to book because it is very popular. The staff are friendly and very efficient. The food is excellent and I can recommend anything off the tandoori menu. I challenge you to finish the mixed grill.... More

Our stopping at Zest was not planned. The car park was packed, yet we got a table. We were quoted 20 min wait, we were seated in barely half that. Great service and professional staff. The food was great, the portions were appropriate and the pace of service very reasonable. My partner found the place a little noisy, there were... More

Everyone seemed to enjoy their food choices and washed these down with various lagers and other drinks... I enjoyed a special mix tikka starter followed by a lamb jalfrezi with... More

Fortunately we have a few decent Indian restaurants in the local area, however, we always find the food in Zest a cut above them. (Always fresh and tasty) The staff are always welcoming and the decor modern in this converted 'Little Chef' building.

Nice looking restaurant with good quality staff who are very attentive and polite. The menu is just too pricey in comparison to other local restaurants, I guess you pay that premium for a nice looking restaurant
