Nice friendly and helpful staff, reasonable prices, food varied a bit between reasonable and excellent, serving time fine, choice of food fine. Only slight dip in quality of some of the food (eg the Seekh Kebab) stops it being excellent.

A group of us went to celebrate my friends birthday at Zaara's on the 20th May. We took advantage of the big weekender offer which was a starter and a main dish with rice or naan bread for £9.95. The service was quick and efficient and I loved my meal especially the chicken, mushroom and garlic curry with cheese and... More

Fair to say we are now regulars at this place and the reasons are quality of food , consistency of quality food , excellent service and extremely competitive prices . Thanks we are moving away soon and this is the place we will miss the most in the Saltaire / Shipley area .

I have eaten here 20+ times. Good service, pleasant surroundings, very good starters and curries. Regular offers make it excellent value for money. This is 'on the spur of the moment' place.

Unfortunately it was some of my colleagues last day at work so we made our way round a few pubs in Saltaire before making our way to Zaaras, inside the atmosphere was very casual whist still maintaining an upperclass Asian Resturant appeal, food and service were great and everyone enjoyed their meals

After our third visit I can say this restaurant is excellent both in terms of the food and the waitresses. The poppadoms and pickles are just delicious to nibble on while looking at the menu. We have tried three different starters on the three visits and all excellent. The mains have all been superb too. Everything cooked to order and... More

We visited the restaurant on Saturday 26 March with extended family from afar who were staying in Shipley for the weekend.

Inside the venue is very well decorated... More

Thanks for your comments. I am sure you can appreciate we needed to check out the validity of the voucher, such a long time after it was issued. That was the reason for the delay.
