Directions to Zaika Indian Bistro and Bar
Zaika is an Indian restaurant in Willis Street in Wellington's central business district that creates modern examples of classic dishes.
Translated, 'zaika' means sophisticated flavours and the staff in Zaika's kitchen strive to replicate that meaning in their menu with fine Indian cuisine. Zaika is relatively new on the Wellington restaurant scene, but has already developed a reputation as one of the best Indian restaurants in the capital and is popular with locals and visitors alike.
For lunch, the restaurant offers several curry dishes all accompanied by a serving of basmati rice and naan bread. The dinner menu includes a wide range of meat and seafood dishes with varying degrees of spice along with several different breads, rice dishes, and sides such as salads and raita. The menu also features a number of vegetarian options.
Modern interpretations of classic curries such as vindaloo and korma sit alongside more unusual dishes such as Bharma Mushroom, marinated in mint, spices and cheese, and Bengali Fish cooked with onion, tomato, garlic and ginger.
Desserts are traditional and diners can choose from Indian ice cream or Gulab Jamun, deep fried cheese dumplings served with sweet syrup.
Several dishes on the menu are designed for sharing and combine with the warm hospitality from the waiting staff to offer a relaxed and enjoyable meal. A set menu offers an easy option for larger groups and includes a selection of entrees, mains, rice and naan bread.
With its opulent décor and seating over 100 people, Zaika is the perfect place for a night out with friends, celebrations, or even a work outing
