“Good value meal”
Reviewed 2 April 2014

We selected this indian restaurant based on reviews on this site and weren't disappointed. We went for the set menu which had good choices some of which were more interesting than the norm. The food was tasty and good value. A good choice if like us you are staying in Crawley at a loose end the night before flying from Gatwick it is a little out of the way but worth the taxi ride given there is little choice in the town centre

“Not as good as hoped for”
Reviewed 1 April 2014 via mobile

We were flying from Gatwick and staying in Ifield. We looked on Tripadvisor for restaurant suggestions and Zari came out near the top.
People raved about the curries but although very nice were not as fabulous as suggested.
The surroundings are very pleasant and the service was very good.
The food was a little pricey and a 10% service charge was automatically added to the bill. We didn't see any mention of this on the menu. The menu lacked descriptions of all the different curries which vary from region to region.

“Nice decor average cooking”
Reviewed 30 March 2014 via mobile

Came here for a Mother's Day treat. The restaurant is fitted out with great style and taste.
There's a large bar area, outdoor seating and modern kitchen visible through glass. It's far too smart for this rough end of Crawley. The food was ok, but nothing out of the ordinary.
There was a choice of a la carte or buffet. £130 for 5 people for 1 course with drinks. Will probably use Giggling Squid next visit.

This has to be one of the best Indian meals I've had. The food was absolutely amazing, service was good and fast and the restaurant was busy (which is always a good sign).

The only complaint would be that some of the staff don't understand what you're ordering and aren't very personable, but that's a small thing that can be sorted. Everything else was amazing and the food, unbelievable !!! A must visit

“The best Indian restaurant anywhere!”

A warm welcome, friendly staff and one of the best Chicken Vindaloo's I can honestly say I've ever had !!!! It was so authentic, fresh and zingy. Everything prepared in front of you through a window. Amazing experience, amazing food and efficient service !!!! Not to be missed
