Really good place for Indian food even though it's not run by Indians. Service was amazing and the food was delicious and not expensive at all. Has both south Indian and North Indian dishes and lots of vegetarian options. Would recommend it to family and friends.

Zaika Indian Cuisine is the place you need to bring your friends and family for that exotic, romantic, and fulfilling experience. I have enjoyed their lunch buffet; The butter chicken is to die for, as well as the carrot, raisin sweets (so good). Zaika's dining is very special, too. They bring you your choice of naan at any sitting: garlic, chili, spinach are my favorites. Of course, you have to pay them a visit to believe it. The decor is very beautiful--it takes you on a little vacation, leaving you very satisfied. Food is delicious; Setting is beautiful and clean; Staff is very inviting.

I don't have a complaint about the food. It was fine, even though the potato pakora was no different than french fries and therefore probably frozen instead of fresh. I went for lunch buffet and asked if they also had menu service so I could order some to go as well. Menu didn't come. I asked again. Menu came, but server didn't return to take an order. After finishing a plate and a half of food, it is now inconvenient to wait for a to go order. So I changed my mind about ordering to go. (good thing because no one came to take that order anyway) Check never came. Had to go up to counter without a bill. I asked for a container for the complimentary naan but was refused. She said that people have taken advantage of them and they didn't offer take home box. I did NOT have any food from the buffet left to take home, only what was left of the generous portion of naan (WAY too much for one person to eat). They threw away three nice pieces of spinach naan because of a few jerks that load up on take home buffet? That is a bad decision in my opinion. Based on the poor service and bad attitude, I will not return there. When in B-Field, I'll go to Taj Majal where the service has always been nice and food is better quality. I should have asked for foil to take the naan home in, but I suppose I was taken aback by her reply. The server should have brought a piece of foil when I asked for a container for the naan and in retrospect, I should have thought to ask for foil. I did make it clear that all I wanted to take with me was the naan.

Much better quality than "Taj Mahal" Still not as good as the food by "Shan" in Downey-but for a local restaurant, I was pleased. And I am picky about my Indian, Pakistani, Afghani and Persian food, so by my standard if food was "very good" by the average Bakersfield citizen who does not travel nationally and internationally-it would be safe to assume that they may leave the place saying it was excellent.

I had gone there in a group of four for dinner. Both veg and non-veg curries were awesome. However, the breads were not up to the mark.
