Really shocked by the lack of quality It’s no wonder no Indians eat here. As a former Michelin rated chef I know my food. I’ve lived in India for two years. This was very poor. If you want authentic cuisine try the Dosa Club.

Whether you dine in or take away this place is fabulous ! I have recommended several people to try Zari and also taken several friends and family here, every one has raved about it afterwards. The food is out of this world !

Visited on Friday night with friends and the place was certainly buzzing! As always the food was excellent with attentive service. The biryani is the best I've tasted anywhere! Can't wait for the next visit.

I went with my two sons and got a take out. The meet was tender and the flavours were spot on. We are sure to return. Although we did not use the restaurant it looked very nice

As usual Zari's produce top quality and authentic Indian food at the right price The food is of the highest standard - all the dishes are individually prepared. Great tasting, good service and food presentation. Friendly and helpful staff. What more could you want

The food, menu and atmosphere are first class. Portion size and price lead me to think that it is perhaps a little overprices... but on the other hand it is very good!

A group of us (10+) decided to go here because of favourable mentions. We certainly were not disappointed. Despite our large(ish) group, we didn’t have to wait long. Service was prompt, friendly and very good The food (Madras) was spicier (commented on by other friends)...More

My better half and I have walked along this row of shops for years. And we decided tonight was the night for Zari. We were greeted by a friendly bunch at the bar and were quickly given our own choice of two seated tables. The...More
