Lovely - really great food and service, a perfect neighbourhood restaurant.
Fabulous food and cocktails but service standards need to improve. Honestly the staff seemed to be walking around in a daze. We had to ask to order drinks, water, food, everything! The staff just stood around doing nothing until they were asked.
Went for a catch-up with a friend. Ordered 4 dishes to share, planning for more, but the portion sizes were generous enough that we filled up quicker than planned.
Food tasted great, we both had 2/4 dishes that we preferred (alternate dishes for each other). Had a decent selection of meat and veggie options to suit both tastes.
Cocktails were nice and bar staff were able to make a drink at our request which was really great.
Good food from former Benares chef
This is an interesting Indian restaurant with a lower chili count than some and more different levels of flavour. The Railway lamb curry and aubergine were wonderful but the biryani was a little disappointing (too much rose and the chicken was dry.
Great place and amazing food. An interesting twist on traditional Indian food, much lighter and tastier. Highly recommended.
Amazing food and excellent service!
A phenomenal menu and excellent service! Great for people with allergies as the menu indicates allergens on all dishes.
Great food and friendly staff
Delicious food cooked on the premises from scratch. Delightful staff and good atmosphere. Our favourite local restaurant.
Buzy Clapham restaurant. Plenty of choice and great ambience. Will go back!
Fantastic! Really recommend it always brilliant food and friendly staff
Great Indian tapas style food and inventive cocktail list
Been many times and always enjoy the food and cocktails,
This is the second time I have been to Zumbura and it was just as good as the first time. The food is amazing and the service is speedy and efficient.
The staff are friendly and helpful and it makes for an enjoyable dining experience. I love the idea of the sharing plates as you get to try more things on the menu this way. Zumbura is one of Claphams many hidden gems and I would recommend it to anyone who would like an authentic Indian experience.
Our night out at Zumbura was great. Its a quirky little restaurant with a great ambience. We reserved a table and although it wasn't ready when we arrived, the staff couldn't have been more apologetic and even gave us all a drink on the house by way of apology.
The food was amazing, our whole party are quite fussy but we enjoyed every dish. Some of the portions come with three pieces and they allow you to upgrade to suit your group. Great little hidden gem. We will definitely return.
Lovely small restaurant with delicious food cooked on site. Friendly and attentive waitresses and other staff. We will keep coming back !
Been many times and always enjoy the food and cocktails
Relaxed atmosphere, I am not keen on very spicy Indian food, or at least it is not keen on me. But I love that Zumbura offer the healthy version without butter and cream, favourite dishes, the Chicken 36 and Ghuggni and my husband loved the signature dish of Lamb Cutlets. One of our party was vegan and gluten free and he was more than happy with his meal. I gave the service 4 stars, it was very good , the staff were friendly and knowledgable, but at times we felt rushed especially when we arrived to get our drinks and food orders in. Other than that we had a great night, definitely coming back.
Food was brilliant - over ordered though! Have already recommended to friends and would go again!
The menu had expanded since my last visit and did not disappoint. Some delicious new additions.
Fab food, good staff, a little on the pricey side but the food made it worth it
First visit to zumbura. Maybe still enjoyable evening. Good food, value and ambience. Will return.
Delicious food and great service. The lamb chops were absolutely amazing. Great value. I would definitely return.
Lovely food, good service, nice atmosphere
Food was good however the portion for price is out of proportion. It's rather pricy to be as 'tapas' settings. We had 2 main dish, 1 side dish, briani rice, nan basket and 2 beers, which priced £53.
I would probably not visit again since the price did not reflect the holistic experience overall.
The food is nice but we felt like we were being rushed to order. Portions are quite small. Average price wise, definitely not cheap!
I came here for a New Year's Eve meal with 4 friends and it honestly was the best Indian food each of us had ever tasted! 100% will be visiting again!
Disappointed with the food- felt it was a bit bland. Service was good. I told them it was my friends birthday and they bought out a cake as a surprise at the end - however when the bill can they had charged me £5 for it!!
Always a great place to pop into on a Friday or Saturday for a bit of food. Lovely ambience and fantastic friendly service topped off by good food. Highly recommend
Other than the supermarket quality naan bread and below average service was an ok meal
The food was utterly delicious, and the Indian-themed cocktails were a delight. The only criticism I have is that the portion sizes of the mains were quite small
Food was good and tasty, with a healthy feel to it. Service was very quick. However I did not like the waiter coming to clear the table whilst one of us was still eating. It left me with the feeling that they could not wait to get you out. Not really a place to linger but good for a quick eat.
Lovely dinner with the friends. Staff were great and brought out a lovely little birthday cake at the end of the meal for my friend's birthday. Was such a lovely touch. Would definitely recommend.
Despite a change of ownership Zumbura didn't disappoint. The menu is about to change so it will be interesting to eat there again soon.
Great Service was provided. they did a special platter of Indian dishes for us as we couldn't decide what to order! excellent!
A great neighborhood place - food was outstanding and not overly heavy/oily as many Indian restaruants serve. Not a huge menu, but that's better sticking to fewer items and doing them well. Enthusiastic staff and very relaxed. Definitely will be back.
Love this place!
always great food and different from the local curry house - authentic, freshly cooked meals. Observation that the size of the main courses is decreasing - which makes it less value for money than previously.....
Great food, good atmosphere. Friendly staff and a nice quiet find on a busy Saturday night. Would recommend for anyone that has family visiting and looking for a nice place. Price was good too for the value.
