Trendy young families and South Ealing socialistas have embraced Zayka as their favourite new local curry house. Always filled with a buzzy crowd, Zayka is run by a former chef from Monty's - an Ealing dining institution down the road - and specialises in authentic Goan and Nepalese dishes.With free parking, a crisp granite-black and white interior and a healthy smattering of Indian wood-carvings and pot plants, this is the perfect South Ealing spot to meet friends and family for a cheap and cheerful curry. We love the Chicken Kafreal cooked with garlic, ginger, green peppers and coriander, and the mild Nepalese Meat Masala made with lamb, onions, spices and tomatoes.

Unfortunately I've lost all my previous past on OpenTable due to an email change and the impossible system to swap this over but I have dined here many times in the past.

Unfortunately the boss of the outfit wasn't working Bank Holiday Sunday night and there was a little slip in terms of service which was a real shame

Our food was spot on as usual apart from one of our party finding the colouring in her king prawns a bit excessive.

Brought us the wrong drinks but did rectify.

We'll be back

A lovely warm and friendly welcome always. Service is good and attentive. Menu is very interesting and diverse in terms of Indian food. Choices of Goan Nepalese and Indian continent favourites.
We had a big birthday family meal. Excellent.

We wanted try Zayka as the reviews were so good. Best in Ealing etc etc. We were quite excited. However we were not wowed by the food or the restaurant. I would say this is very average Indian fayre with a hint of Nepalese and Goyan thrown in. Our menus were sticky from previous customers use which didnt bode too well. The Food was not particularly inspiring, restaurant table layout not the best for a comfortable evening out. Our waiter was clearly a newbie and really didnt know how to wait. Plates taken away before we had finished etc. Zayak is certainly not the best in Ealing and there are others that are better. We could see that a lot of customers were regulars and I guess very local and it seems that the restaurant relies heavily on this customer base. It all seemed abit tired and in need of some inspiration to attract a new breed and maybe generation of customer. Not bad but not brilliant.

The restaurant is pretty plain - perhaps it could so with a few pictures or ornaments but the welcome is friendly. We were a group of 8 and the food was on the whole very good - couple of dishes which weren't so nice but I suppose each restaurant has their version of the classics. The black lentils were very good and the prawn puri was also a winner. Prices are reasonable - would recommend

We took my parents here who were over from Spain and they now have two new fans!!
The food was delicious, the service was very friendly they treat us like friends now. We got to try some new dishes and we were not disappointed, the king prawn curry was to die for.
We will be returning again and again and introducing all our friends to this little gem :)

The food was so enjoyable, would recommend it to my friends and family. I used to go to the restaurant a long time ago with my father and it was his favourite place to eat. Don't live so local now but would definitely travel a bit further to enjoy such a good selection from your menu especially the shamee kebabs which hardly any Indian restaurants have on their menu

We ate here due to the good reviews and we were not disappointed, as we are not big eaters we ordered half portions of both curry and rice which was very handy as no one wants to waste all that food. Everything we had was delicious from the poppadoms to the rice, the service was very friendly, they make you fell really welcome and valued from the moment you arrive. All in all it was a really lovely meal in a very nice restaurant with exceptional service, we will definitely be back!!

Second visit here after dropping into try it a few weeks back -- we took two of our friends with us so were hoping it was just as good. It was!
We've by-passed this place for far too long and so glad it's now on our radar for local curry houses and makes up for the sad loss of The Sitar a while back.

The service is absolutely spot on and the dishes are both plentiful and very tasty.

Next challenge is the delivery service.

We'll soon be regulars!

An low key, yet above average Indian restaurant with no fuss.

We had a noisy group in the small restaurant on Friday which makes a big difference to the small space.

The food is good as always although I was dissapointed to find no Lassi on the night... :'(

As always, the wine is pretty average and very expensive.

Living in France but visiting the UK regularly, I have to have a curry fix every time I'm here. Found Zayka on the net and was impressed with the reviews, so booked for myself and two friends. Both are curry lovers and were as impressed as I was. I returned last week, with another curry loving buddy and she was suitably impressed as well. Really comprehensive menu that I look forward to sampling further

We dined at Zayka last Friday evening. We had a late table but that was no problem and we were greeted warmly. The food was delicious. They accomodated easily all our requirements for the varaious food allegies that our party had. The peshwari naan was light and fluffy and a firm favourite of my mother in law and she is hard to please!

I took my mum out for dinner as she wanted a good curry and that's what we got! The Service was very good - very friendly staff. The only thing was is that we had to order extra vindaloo sauce as the curries can be dry and the onion Bhaji's were slightly overcooked. My mum was very pleased with the big portions of chicken and the ambience was nice enough - you can tell it's very popular as it was very busy by the time we left the restaurant and the last time I was eating in me and my husband met the Brentford FC manager! I have been a customer for a year now and always get my takeaways from Zayka. Like Zayka very much!
