As Zayna have decided to come off Opentable books, this review is pointless! It is very good food but expensive we thought.

First time we went to this place. Excellent food, quite spicy so it might not be for everybody. Service was fine and efficient but could pay more attention to details (removing empty plates etc)

We were very impressed. The food was excellent, as was the service. Many of the main courses are available as half portions. We had appetizers followed by 2 half-portion mains and the Shahi Palak full portion- an outstanding dining experience!

I have eaten at Zayna on a number of occasions over the last couple of years. I live overseas and Zayna is now one of the first places I visit when I am in London. The spicing of their food is really good and I like that they also serve quite authentic dishes. Much as I enjoy some of the more modern cooking of a number of Indian restaurants in London, I would always come back to the honest and straightforward style of Zayna.

The food was excellent, but we ended up in the very small basement dining room. We missed the cheerful buzzy ambiance of the main dining room, and made the experience much less pleasurable.

The food was very good but the setting downstairs was a little stale so make sure you ask for an upstairs table. Reasonable prices for the food but the drinks prices were ludicrous (£17.50 for a double + mixer). We discussed this with the manager who informed us about the rationale for this (imposed apparently) so accepted it. Overall would go back for the food which was some of the better indian food i've had in London.

A true dining experience. We did not look at the menu, the owner came to take our order and we asked him to send us his best dishes. After that it was all a visual festival of scents and tastes. A great experience.

I was recommended to try this restaurant and I was very glad to have visited. My friend and I shared the pakoras and some popadoms to start with - both amazing and so moreish! I had the starter portion of the tandoori salmon because it's such an uncommon dish in Indian restaurants I've been to and I also got the butter chicken. The salmon was the right amount of spicy and very soft and flavoursome. The chicken was also amazing - normally I dont care for much sauce but I was so pleasantly surprised with this dish. For the first time ever, I mopped it up with the peshwari naan bread my friend and I shared. When booking, I was so happy to see the vast number of fish and also vegetarian options as my friend doesn't eat meat. She had the paneer and the Dahl and said both were delicious.

Place is kind of cosy and staff is friendly. We ordered the Murgh Taka Tuk and Ishtu. The Murgh was tasty and somewhat hot even tho the waiter told us everything was cooked medium. The Ishtu was very strange and reminded us more of a stew with some indian spices rather than authentic indian/pakistani food. I would not recommend it to anyone. The lamb in the Ishtu was tender so atleast that's a plus. I feel like there is plenty of better options for indian dining in the Marleybone-area.

I visited the restaurant for a pre theatre dinner. Conveniently it is open at 5pm. The flavors of the food were fabulous and it was nicely presented. I chose 2 of the 1/2 portion vegetarian options (an inspired idea): aloo gobi and a spinach dish, plus basmati rice with mushrooms. Thoroughly enjoyed it and will be back again when next in London

Best Indian food in London. Be sure to make a booking as they are very popular and have a limited number of seats. Try the Rose wine from Morocco! Will be back on my next visit to London. Cheers!
