Come to central Whitechapel to experience the warmth of food and family. Of course as a grill there is always room for lamb chops, the measure of a great restaurant
My one of my favourite Indian restaurants in the whole of London. Simple, but great fresh food- particularly the amazing Samosas! Nice, quiet atmosphere & attentive service! Great place!
The Service was great, was a nice chilled atmosphere and the Food was lovely! Me and my family will definitely be going back without a doubt!
Going to Zaza's quite regularly as the food is great, the staff is nice and prices are reasonable. Always a very comfortable and pleasant atmosphere there.
What a fantastic night. Great food, good friendly service, pleasant ambiance, excellent price. My Canadian friends were very impressed. This was our second visit having previously been regular customers at Tayyabs. We think Zazas is much better. We'll be back!
A lot of reviews compare the food at this place as similar to nearby Tayyabs and Needo's. I have been visiting those restaurants for years and can confidently say that compared to them the food at zaza's is highly average, and very bland tasting. The king prawn grill @£13 for 3 pieces was a major disappointment. The chicken Karachi was also very tasteless. The grilled items like seekh kebab, chicken tikka and tandoori chicken were okay but not particularly enjoyable. The restaurant has a nice seating area and the staff are friendly; but that's not enough to woo me away from my favourite restaurant in the vicinity, which is still Tayyabs.
Our third visit and still impressed with the food and the service. It was a good night for myself and my guests. Only hiccup was when we asked for another plate of rice and the waiter brought it over from another table!! Interesting lol.
Six of us had a great night here. Nice decor, large window front so you can see outside, intriguing brick arches in the gents! Fantastic food and service. We'll be back!
Good food and friendly staff. Food served within 10min. I recommend this place for casual meal.
Food was cold bad service, lamb tasted like it was gone off. Not enough varieties of food on buffet. Not happy will not be going there again.
