In Ipswich on Business this was recommended and looked good on Trip advisor. The food was great and the staff friendly courteous and helpful. We had poppadum's, my colleague the Tandoori mix grill which he said was good and I had the Lamb Korai what a great choice the lamb was succulent and tender with the sauce a medium heat,... More

Ok it's another Indian restaurant review from me but that's what I feel I'm good at. I'm in Ipswich this week so tried Zaika Indian Restaurant for my evening meal. I looked at a different restaurant on my way out as it was closer to my hotel but seeing that it only had 3 stars for hygiene I gave it... More

My friend and I popped in on a spur of the moment for a bite to eat. It was mid week and around 6pm but already it was getting busy, always a good sign. Very friendly and welcoming. We weren't massively hungry so shared a starter, pilau rice, saag aloo and chicken tikka jalfrezi. All cooked beautifully, no pools of... More

We went here on the night before Valentine's Day, and although they were about to close early to get the restaurant ready for Valentine's Day, they allowed us in as long as we were ok with finishing within an hour. The staff were extremely friendly and the food was nothing short of spectacular! The sheek kebab had a good kick... More

Absolutely incredible. We have been friends with Mac for a while and decided it was about time to pay him a visit at his new work place. So glad we did. Such amazing staff members and great food. Lovely atmosphere and not to crowded. They also have an upstairs space for more diners as well. The food menu is really... More

Came here for a business team dinner and although I cant fault the food, the service was a little strained. The meal itself was good quality but nothing beyond what I would expect from a town centre curry house. The restaurant was tired and could do with a refresh. The service was friendly however the meal took much longer than... More

Went here for a friends birthday, the portion sizes are really generous and the menu had a lot of choice. It was really good value for money too. The staff were really friendly and helpful, and there is a lot more space than I thought. It was my first time there last time however I will definitely be coming back

Zaika is one of a few 'good' indian restaurants in Ipswich. the hyderebad biryani was very good and the chicken tikka chilli masala was tasty and suitably spicy. whilst im still waiting for an outstanding indian restaurant in Ipswich, I don't mind coming to zaika in the meantime one bit.

We have visited this restaurant on many occasions and have always found the food to be very good. The service is excellent and the owner always has time to chat to us.

Have visited Zaika on a regular basis over the years and have always had a very good time. This latest visit was good, but the service has slipped slightly. Only slightly, but the waiters need to remember to smile and be genuinely interested in ensuring that the customer feels important. Food was as good as ever. Toilets are very well... More
