SquareMeal Review of Cafe Zia

Café Zia has given its large, if somewhat narrow, dining room & cosy bar a bit of a spruce up over the past year. Perhaps this pleasing local Indian is trying to modernise itself (the previous red & white colour scheme was starting to look a little dated). However, the refurb may be a case of too little, too late: the roaring takeaway & delivery trade seem to have taken precedence over the restaurant itself, leaving the room often quiet, even empty. The kitchen itself has a willingness to keep things going – Goan lobster curry is a remarkably good dish, & the jall gosht, made with specially imported naga chillis, is the ultimate curryholic’s dish, the chillis layering each other to achieve a final trumpet of spice.

This serves the best curry I have ever had! I have tried quite a few different dishes and have been impressed with all of them – each one tastes very original compared to many curry houses. It is making me hungry just thinking about them… The staff are also extremely helpful and attentive without intruding on your meal.
