2 for 1 at Zarana Indian Restaurant

Zarana Indian Restaurant in Hornchurch, Essex is a delicious eatery known for serving the finest in authentic Indian and Bangladeshi cuisine.

This award winning venue is open all week and has an atmosphere in which you can dine with friends and family and feel welcome, relaxed and comfortable. The interior is modern and pristine, with polished wooden floors and cream walls punctuated with artwork. Colourful mood lighting further sets the ambience.

Head Chef Mr Ahmed works hard to use traditional cooking techniques and all of the original ingredients to create dishes that are sure to please everyone, from the curry connoisseur to those just trying something new. Try one of Zarana's thalis: four smaller portions of curry, served on a silver platter with rice and chapatis in the traditional Indian style. The Zarana Thali includes Tandoori King Prawn curry, the Lamb Rezala, Bombay Aloo and pilau rice. There's even an option for Lobster Saghee.

Other popular dishes include the Macher Jhol - an fish curry originating from the Bengali region. For something a little more exotic, try the Ceylon King Prawn curry, cooked with sweet and sour spices and coconut.

    Poor service, the food took ages even though there was only one other table occupied.

    The food was very under par, one of the worst Indian restaurants I've been too (despite actually looking quite nice decor wise), the cobra on tap tasted a bit grim aswell.

    Maybe we caught it on bad night as seems to get decent reviews usually, certainly won't be returning to find out. "

  • "Have eaten here most months for nearly a year now. Every dish has always been perfectly cooked and tasty. I have for the first time in an Indian restaurant experimented with new dishes. I love the Zarana biriyani, the Chana masala is the best i have ever had and the noodles last week were divine!! I will keep coming back again and again due to excellent value for money, brilliant service and amazing food. They have a live singer on a Thursday night. The banquet option is also fantastic value for money. Oh and they make the best onion bhajis Ive have ever had! Kirsty "

  • "Popped in on the off chance, great first impressions: good interior, lovely music, overall great ambiance. The food could be described as gourmet Indian delight. Never tasted masala sauce like it – thick and tasty. Had the mixed biryani, with chicken and prawn, beautifully done, well cooked also had the vegetable curry, neither of which were oily. Could tell that all of the food was fresh. The naan was cooked to perfection. Eaten at a few Indian restaurants but this was the best ever tasted. This Indian tops the lot, perfect, out of this world and a delight to the taste buds, will definitely go again. Philip "
