The place was good. If it was not for the Groupon deal I am not sure if I would have went because the prices are slightly higher than expected for a few of their meals. I got the chicken tikka masala with garlic naan bread and it was good. When it comes to portion size if you are super hungry you can eat the entire meal in one sitting. Overall good experience and I enjoyed the food and the location of the restaurant.

Service was terrible, waited over 10 minutes before a waiter appeared after we asked busboy to locate our waiter. One entree came out incomplete, lacking the Shrimp. A disaster of a Friday evening dining experience, especially since we just recently returned from India. Tipped the busboy who was very attentive.

Service needs to improve. Pricey. Appearance is good but taste needs to be improved.

From Our Editors

Two floors can accommodate 36 basketball teams—180 diners—at Zaika. But there’s an elegance that belies the size of the restaurant. Crimson and orange permeate the scene, with flowing, red curtains canopying booths. A high-sheen black bar points to a flat-screen television, and much of the seating adjacent to that bar has enough cushioning to withstand being trod by a tank. Sprawling murals depicting starry skies suggest there might be even more space than seating capacity states. Named after a Hindi word meaning “taste” or “sense of taste,” Zaika unites aesthetic splendor with culinary splendor: it holds its chefs to high standards of both tradition and innovation, presented on a menu of creative Indian cuisine.

Toward the lavish dining room, which has hardwood accents as glossy as a freshly licked mirror, the complex aromas of Indian spices emerge from the kitchen. Those scents waft from a Calcutta specialty of raj kachori, filled with chickpeas, tamarind vermicelli, chutney, and yogurt, as well as chicken 65—spicy diced chicken tempered with mustard seeds and curry leaves. The chef’s special bakes in the traditional tandoori oven and features a whole red snapper, marinated and grilled, alongside malai kebab—cubed chicken breast marinated in a combination of yogurt, cream cheese, ginger, and mild spices.
