Have changed the menu - not much for vegetarians!.
The staff are not the most knowledgeable.

Great food, tasting menu for two people is 1 piece of each item. I feel they should have been clearer about this as the menu portrays more than one for each person. So check this before ordering if ordering tasting menu for 2.

Great service but I imagine they were understaffed a little. BUT...the food is worth the wait and the staff on-site did a great job managing.

We visited Zaika on a recommendation from a colleague and we were not disappointed.

We visited for our first year anniversary which I made Zaika aware before hand and they made it so special with a decorated extra dessert and fantastic service and food.

We honestly couldn't fault it! We had the taster menu and my god the value for food was unbelievable. It was incredible.

We usually do not visit the same restaurant twice when visiting London but we will definitely be making an exception! I can't wait to try the lobster curry...

Thank you all again.

The last time we came to Zaika was pre Covid and we loved it. The menu was very different and shorter but still really interesting. The guys on service were really friendly and attentive, our server Stephen especially so.

we arrived on time and the table was not ready. however, we had a drink at the bar and was led to the table. The order was placed with the wine, (good wine choice). The food was superb and the service was swift and elegant.
All in all, the experience was very pleasant and we all had a very good time.
thank you.

We had a requested a table with a good view as we were on our honeymoon, arrived when the restaurant was almost empty and were still sat next to one of the only other couples in the place close to the bathroom. The dining was nice, just a bit disappointed with the hostess’s seat selection after us giving the request.

We really enjoyed the tasting menu and matching wines, which is very good value (you get to try a lot of dishes). Highlights included the beetroot salad, sea bass and Bombay potatoes - cooked to perfection. Our waiter Stephen was great, and his cocktail recommendation was delicious! The setting is very relaxing and the pace was just right.

The setting was perfect. This is a high class setting and we were greeted as soon as we arrived. The restaurant was clean and tidy. The menu choices will suit all appetites and we went for the taster menu with wine pairing. Our waiter/waiters were fantastic and talked us through each dish and wine pair. The food quality was exceptional and we felt extremely valued as customers. Thank you for making our evening so special.

Booked a table at Zaika for my boyfriend’s birthday. I just mentioned when booking the table that it’s a birthday.
Food (lamb shank) and service were excellent. After dinner they served a surprise birthday desert for my boyfriend!!!
We had a lovely evening, highly recommend
