Cuisine: Indian
Price Point: Mains from $15 - $25

For the best curry in Christchurch, you have arrived. This is Zyka Indian Cuisine.

Simple and tasteful, the restaurant’s interior is a great spot for any occasion, be it a chilled dinner with friends or a more intimate supper for two. Take the weight off in their roomy dining area amidst all the delicious smells and get ready for some serious food envy.

Set at least half an hour to peruse the extensive menu. Will it be a chicken, lamb, seafood or vegetarian dish? If it’s chicken, go classic with an unbeatable tikka or go further afield with their chicken afgani. Their lamb palak is intense in flavour, as is their Kerala fish and shrimp Malabari. On the veggie team is a creamy dahl and a luxurious paneer butter masala.

Wash it all down with a bottle of the good stuff or turn your drink into a pudding with their Mango Lassi!

Love love love Zyka! This little hidden secret is the best Indian restaurant in Christchurch I’ve experienced. This is the third time I’ve dined at Zyka and the great service and mouth watering food has been top notch every time. I can’t wait to come back and salivating at the thought as I’m writing this review.

The food was great! Even my 6 year old son was scared of anything that 'looked spicy ' enjoyed himself. Food came out quick and the service was great. Would certainly go back :-)

By far the best mango lassi I've ever had, the red syrup made it extra special! The food was divine. Highly recommend this restaurant. Thank you for the excellent service

All the food is amazing here! My partner and I ordered an entree to share and it was delicious!
We got a main each (seafood and lamb) and they were both very tasty!
I got a thickshake which was creamy and superb!
Would come again!
Only downside was the music wasn't on when we arrived- we asked to have some playing and they turned it on but about 10 minutes later it was turned off and never came on again

I dined at Zyka with my partner. We had the mixed platter which was excellent. We both chose a chicken main each and a different naan each. The food was great, service fantastic. We took a bottle of wine as this was an option, there was also drinks available to purchase. Great venue also for larger groups.

We had a lovely visit to Zyka. Pleased to find parking provided. The staff welcomed us warmly and were friendly and helpful with our food choices. We ordered mild which actually means no heat so next time ( and we intend to go again)we will order medium. Food was delicious and our favourite was the platter enough for 4 as a starter. A good night out. Thank you.

Rachele Joyce

Restaurant was too hot, 30 degrees outside and doors shut, no air con. Bottles of warm water on table until we asked if we could perhaps have chilled water
Butter chicken was very chewy, use to having chicken tender that melts in the mouth.
Wouldn’t go back...
