    The food was absolutely delicious, possibly the best curry we've ever had. Restaurant is clean and modern, service attentive, both of the guys were amazing - we were even offered a small liqueur on the house after dinner. Will definitely be back and will be ordering for home delivery too! Thank you for a lovely evening. "

    This is the best Indian in Colchester by a country mile. The fact that it accepts the Taste Card, it means we will be going twice a week instead of once. The food is exceptional and the staff really friendly. A real diamond in the rough!!!! "

    Just been to Zaal (Sat eve) and have to say it's by far the best Indian meal we've had. Service was second to none and for a weekend visit was surprised at how few people were eating in. The decor nice and bright, staff attentive and knowledgeable on vast menu choices recommend Bombay Flame!! Do yourself a favour visit Zaal you won't be disappointed. "

    Just had a meal at Zaal. The food and staff were brilliant!

    Staff were very attentive at all times.

    We had popadoms to start which were lovely.
    Once done with our starter it was quickly cleared away for us. Our main wasn't long to follow.

    Thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Zaal. We will be going back again soon! Highly recommend!! "

    There are a large amount of Indian Restaurants in Colchester, but this is a hidden gem.....but is strangely not hidden at all as it's right on a main road. The food is superb and the restaurant is very well appointed!!

    It is however never busy, despite the good easily being the best Indian I have had in a long long time, it's so very tasty and very fresh.

    They say they do very well in take aways, but I just hope that the restaurant is able to stay open.

    There is no reason for it to be as empty as it is, because it's very high quality......if you are reading this then you have a tastecard, I implore you try them out, you will not be disappointed! "
