Once again we were impressed with Zaika. The food is consistently excellent (especially the original naan bread). We took my brother and nieces for the buffet. It is our favourite Indian restaurant in Edmonton and has never let us down.

This place used to be a weekly staple but the food has progressively lost its appeal and the buffet reminds me of a cafeteria now, last Friday kitchen staff were coming out and just dumping food into the trays rather than bringing fresh containers out. It seems to have lost its classy vibe unfortunately.

Our return visit to Zaika was worth it. This is still one of the best Indian restaurants and buffets in Edmonton. Great selection from the delicate battered fish , to traditional pakoras in a curried yogurt sauce, to curried goat, butter chicken, paneer, and a dozen other treats. Each dish has it's own flavour. This is important because many buffets... More
