Brilliant late night meal. Popped in with 45 minutes left until closing, immediately greeted and welcomed to a table, the background music was actually good, and once seated I was immediately offered drinks and poppadoms.
Had a classic lamb dupiaza with boiled rice and a cheese nan. Service was rapid (though it was obviously quiet at nearly 9:30pm) and despite being the only one there, everything was fantastically fresh. The lamb flaked and was easy to pull apart and had some fantastic flavours, clearly well marinated, no excessive oil in the sauce and a really big serving of fluffy and perfectly cooked white rice. I need to make a special mention for the cheese nan, as some curry houses just melt cheese on to a nan, this time it was done right, and baked into the bread itself, and it really hits different.
£30 all in, and worth every penny. I highly recommend giving Zaynab a try.
Great host and an excellent location just off the A14 Caple St Mary, Suffolk
Food was brilliant and the atmosphere was spot on.
Plenty of parking and easy access.
They also do special tribute band nights, like Elvis, so watch out for promo...
Great quality Indian food. Extremely tasty and a great selection of curries. Really enjoyed our visit and will try it again when we’re in the area.
Love this place....been coming ever since opened.
Came as a couple to enjoy the place more without our friends!
Charming polite staff. Standards remain high
Food always so tasty
For a special meal, this was the best Indian food I have ever tasted - delicious🧡. The manager went out of his way to make sure our experience was the best,
Wow what a surprise and yes this was a recommendation from Tripadvisor. Once again not in the top 10, in fact number 16 of 286. Looking for someone to eat with good reviews and our travel or distance to the venue not an issue. Long story short, we arrive by side of the A12 to see what looks like a closed little Chef. With the clouds gathering my wife wants to go and get back home before the rain. I need to feed and open the door and walk in and by now we have also seen a poster for A travelling Elvis. Intreagued? So was as we had seen the Elvis impersonator some 9 years earlier. More doors, we enter. The room before us is full of tables laid and in waiting for feast to be served. No guests or staff in sight I call out and so begins our feast. The Food! The appetisers, popdoms with beautiful accompaniments, starters fresh well cooked chicken with great spices and flavour, Salmon tandoori dry cooked and charred to perfection. Main dishes Tandoori King Prawn shashlik and Lamb Num Num with pilau rice and sagaloo. All very fresh cooked perfectly and with spice so well balanced. This really has to be tried to be believed. We will definitely be visiting again soon, and big thank you to our host and server Nasim.
Suprise visit driving by, what a fantastic restaurant, food amazing, quality service. Absolute hidden gem, please visit ✨✨
So we went to this one because you guys rated it quite high which made me want to check it out myself, and I have to say, I quite agree with you.
I went for the Vindaloo, personally as a chilli head, my personal preference would have been to have it a bit more spicy, however it was indeed quite spicy, but I do like it VERY spicy, mainly because I eat raw chillies, Carolina Reapers etc.
The dish itself was very tasty and had a lot of substance, sometimes you go to places and it's just thick'ish coloured water with a couple of bits of this and that in it that tastes quite bland, and made spicy with lots of chilli powder which ruins it even more, well, this was NOT one of those places!!
As I said the dish not only had substance to it by having more than 3 sparse ingredients in it. but it was very flavoursome as well, a top notch dish.
My coconut rice could have done with slightly more coconut flavour in it, don't get me wrong you could clearly tell it was a coconut rice, I just put a bit more in mine, but I would very happily order this again and again.
The saag Aloo was spot on for flavour and put together very well, with perfectly done potato's both in this and the Vindaloo, which also had a good amount of chicken in it as well which I forgot to mention, however it could have been a bit more tender.
Both my friends dishes were also well filled out with meant and other relevant ingredients, and I was assured they were both very tasty.
My last little note, is that for the price I would have liked to have seen slightly bigger portions, we normally pay around £15 to £20 less than we did here for similar dishes and drinks.
Overall a very good experience and I will be going back here again, mainly to try the all you can eat buffet on a Sunday!
A Great Discovery . Went because of the great reviews. Wasn't disappointed. Lovely venue, which filled up as we ate (we had booked early). Non intrusive music playing in the background. Waiters were friendly and welcoming. Food on the menu offered traditional indian cuisine but also some less predictable items. The food was well presented, plentiful and delicious. The prices were reasonable. We both had chicken tandoori to start then chicken tikka biryani and lamb madras with special rice, onion bahji and a garlic nan bread - also two glasses of diet coke each and generous coffees which all came to £58.70. They do have a dessert menu which comprises of various ice creams but we were very full so didn't partake. It would have been nice to have been able to have a fruit salad or mango/pineapple etc., and they might consider having decaff coffee available but now I really am nit-picking. All in all had a lovely indian meal and will definitely be going back. Might avoid the nights when they have their Elvis tribute on, but that's just our preference and I would imagine it would be very good, if you're into that sort of thing, since the act has appeared on various TV channels and radio. Just leaves me to say .... nice one Zaynab! PS. Loos are very nice too!!! ☺☺☺
The MOST amazing Indian food - this is our favourite restaurant in the entire area. We have been using it consistently now for over 3 years and have taken and recommended to family and friends who all love it too. Fresh, quality ingredients, beautiful meats, fantastic dishes that are simply a taste sensation. Sam and his team are wonderful hosts and do their best to make your experience fantastic every single time. We cannot find anywhere that can match Zaynab.
