Having visiting London on Sunday evening, we wanted to stop by for an Indian close by and it turned out Zaika was the closest. Entering a big building, scented, with a high ceiling and a dark atmosphere, it felt special already. I left the waiter to recommend a starter with a main and a side, followed by a rice and... More

Really lovely place. Food is wonderful, especially the lamb curry and peshwari naan. Service is great and attentive for my elderly dad. Nice finishing touch of birthday treats for the birthday pair.

The food was exceptional. All stunning Tandoori salmon & the prawn was a lovely dish, the curries were amazing & truffle nan an absolute show stopper! (I ❤️ truffle!)

Went there for a celebration. The restaurant is very busy and has a bar so waiting at the bar gives you time to reflect on the interior which is historical building and soak up the atmosphere. The service was good , the food well presented but the taste not 5 star but a good 4 star.

Just came back from this wonderful restaurant. The hostess that greeted us was an absolute delight and very friendly. I should have asked for her name. We were sat down at a lovely large table and it was in an intimate area which was great. All the staff are lovely! Had a lovely evening but would request the restaurant places... More

Staying in South Kensington

Neighbourhood Profile
South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall) such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.
