It’s best to go À la carte at Zaica. They do have a lunch buffet though, in case you are in a hurry, or don’t want to read the menu. If you are in a group, I recommend the vegetarian or the non-vegetarian kabab platter. It makes most sense. For main course, the pateeleywala chole is a good choice – it has got the lovely taste of pomegranate, and goes well with a kulcha. I was happy with my keema pav though, and an order of the butter chicken was a good idea too, even though I find most butter chicken sweeter than it ought to be.
Starters were superb.. Especially chat and pav bhaji.maincourse was fine.Dessert was awesome.6-7 variety of dessert.Value for money
I just visited this place this weekend to give their Punjabi Food Festival menu a try. Being a Delhi-ite, ever since I've moved to Bangalore, I've been trying to find some good old Punjabi food and it's safe to say that Zaica didn't disappoint at all. It had a simple decor, with the focus mainly on food which is what should be for places serving buffets. They had counters of Paranthas, Pakodas, Tawa desserts and Chaat right at the entrance. Thus, you could make up your mind at the beginning itself as to what you're about to indulge in. All the starters were served on the table while the soup, salads, main course and desserts were arranged on dedicated buffet counters. However, we started off with the ever so mandatory Lassi (8.5/10), which set the tone for the enormous Punjabi sized meal ahead! The starters itself left me pretty full. My favourite was the Amritsari Tawa Machhi (9.5/10) which had succulent pan fried pieces of fish full of tangy masala. Slightly crispy on the outside, and soft in the middle, it didn't take much time for me to devour this dish. Other non vegetarian starters that I tried were the Murgh Malai Tikka (8.5/10) and Mutton Angeer Seekh (7/10). The Malai Tikka was again soft and succulent with a nice coating of cream and flavourful spices, however the Seekh was a bit of a disappointment. It was quite dry and you couldn't really savour the flavour of mutton. Coming to the vegetarian starters, not really being a vegetarian person, I still liked the vegetarian starters better. My favourites were the Tandoori Pineapple (9.5/10) and Jalandhari Paneer Tikka (8.5/10). The Tandoori Pineapple was everything a dish should have, a good mix of sweet, spicy and tang which really mesmerised my taste buds. The pineapples were still juicy and left me salivated even after I devoured the 4 pieces. The paneer although was slightly chewy, but the masala on it was so great, that it made me overlook the chewy nature of the dish. The other starters that I tried were Aloo Mutter Kaju Tikki (8/10) and Makai Cheese Samosa (8/10). The Tikki although decent, was pretty much the usual and while I liked the samosa, my friends didn't. For me, the corn added a nice change and I liked the contrasting textures and flavours of the same. Coming to the live counters, they had a parantha counter from where I tried the Chicken and Cheese Parantha (8.5/10). Although there wasn't much cheese in it, the parantha tasted amazing. It was a perfectly made parantha, crisp on the outside and soft in the centre. The Chaat counter had a huge assortment of finger licking chaats. I tried the Raj Kachori (8.5/10), Gol Gappe (6.5/10) and Papdi Chaat (8.5/10). The Raj Kachori was nice and huge, with a good and generous filling of potatoes and chutneys. The Gol Gappe didn't come very close to those served in North India and didn't really please me, while the Papdi Chaat was again delightfully refreshing. They also served Chicken, Prawns and Vegetable Pakodas, out of which I tried the Chicken Pakoda (6/10). While the flavours were good, the batter still felt raw from inside and thus was a let down. I also tried the Murgh Kali Mirch Shorba (8/10) which was decent and light on the palate. Coming to the main course, while there was a huge array of options, there was only very limited space left in the stomach, and so I wasn't able to try many items. I started with the Punjabi Chicken Tikka Salad (7/10) which didn't really seem anything special and there was so much experimentation with this that I couldn't taste any flavour at all. Then I jumped onto the Patiyala Murgh Biryani (9/10), Rara Murgh (9.5/10) and Rajwali Machhi Curry (8.5/10). The Biryani was really good with the perfect amount of masala and tender pieces of chicken. The Fish Curry was again very well spiced and went well plain as well as with some bread. The star of the day for me though was the Rara Murgh which I devoured with the good old Lachha Parantha (9/10). The crispy and hot Lachha Parantha made for a perfect accompaniment to take a big bite of the minced masala of the Rara Murgh. A meal isn't finished without the dessert, and so I had the Jalebis (6.5/10), Tawa Mithai (9/10) and Gulabi Phirni (8/10). The Jalebis were not that good and were more chewy than crispy. The Phirni was again decent, but nothing too special about it, but I really loved the Tawa Mithai. It was basically a minced mixture made up of Rasgullas, Gulab Jamun, Sweet Boondi, Jalebi and such, mixed together with some Rabri and sauteed on the tawa. These were then garnished with some Rabri and Roohafza like syrup and served, and I would recommend everyone to give this a try. While I have tried so many items, these are only 50% of the items available in their huge buffet spread, and I urge all of you to go and give this a try as soon as possible. The flavours are good, service is impeccable and provides a good value for money.
Food was really good. Value for money. Service was not bad. Ambience was not up to the mark. Need to beautify the ambience.
Well they jad a Delhi festival going on, with Delhi food items. Being a foodie wanted to taste so reserved a table and went. First hit, nothing mentioned and nothing of the items mentioned available. Karims both kabab - not there, nataraj dahi bhalle - such a sorry state that nataraj will beat them for using their name. Less said about the chaat the better. No Delhi chaat corner will serve stale tikki with matar on top and mo taste whatsoever. Service was fine, but the quality left a lot to be desired. Starters were fine but ruined by the expectations set. Amazingly low experience, no reason to go back again.
Not value for money. Food is of average quality. Also, they can do much better on the taste front. We took chicken dhaba and will not recommend anyone to take it. All in all not a great experience and will not be returning to this restaurant again
