It has become a tradition to revisit Zala and have lunch there, regardless of the weather. Just like stated in my previous report, the lunch menu costs only 7 euros and is very much assorted: two rices, four kinds of curry (one vegetarian), salad, papa...More

My hotel was not far from here and the area is very nice and I accidentally came across this place. The inside is nice. Menu is simple. Due to my lack of German I chose a lamb dish that I had not heard of (I...More

The Zala is a nice restaurant right next to the popular Hallerstrasse subway station. It's interior is comfy, a bit exotic and allows for private conversations. The way everything is set up looks upscale (e.g. wine glasses on the tables, rather high prices), however the...More

There are three Zala restaurants in Hamburg. We had dinner at the Rothenbaumchaussee one. The setting is very ornate with beautifully carved wood tables. The service is friendly, polite and helpful. The food is freshly prepared and good quality - spicey but not too hot....More

This is no way an Indian restaurant. The food was poor, the service worse. The food in this restaurant bears no resemblance to proper Indian food. It's badly cooked and flavourless. The rice is pre-cooked and resembled Uncle Ben's. I was embarrassed to bring some...More

Zala... is the hosts' name and means "recommendation" in the Indian language. Our goal is to give you moments of rest and enjoyment with our dishes and service. Enjoy our oriental, delightful and exclusive dishes, which are made daily and with ultimate perfection by our chefs in all our restaurants. We use exquisite and fresh ingredients every day, for example our special curry-composites are freshly made by our chefs and remain as their secrets. You can choose the degree of spiciness matching to your personal preferences. Also our house made Indian cheese will seduce your sense of taste. Since our chefs constantly attempt to confirm our high standards we kindly ask you to have a little patience if the dish you are going to order may take some time. All our dishes are cooked without any flavour enhancer and can be ordered completely vegan! Hint: The host suggest, especially to our first time visiting guests, one of our special three-course meal (we serve three different main dishes) to enjoy and eat your fill!
