Zaika means ''flavour" or "sense of taste". 

Our aim at Zaika here in Hanoi is to demystify Indian food otherwise known to be rich and old style. We bring to you recipes from everyday home cooking that have been cherished by families from across India. The cuisine is a contemporary interpretation of classic Indian cooking. Utterly Indian, yet of the times we live in by following the simple rule of nutrition – Eat Natural, Eat Whole & Eat Everything

Set in the old quarters of Hanoi, the restaurant offers a contemporary ambience with an experience of wholesome Indian food made from locally sourced fresh produce & ingredients. 

Our guests are in for a  delightful journey as we work with ingredients and cooking techniques that are common to Vietnamese kitchens as well as that of India. The flavors of fresh seafood, lotus stem, colocasia and succulent chargrilled kebabs cooked in the ‘Tandoor’ over charcoal are those that will be familiar, yet obscure.


Choose from platters that come as a meal-for-one or an array of dishes & curries to-be-shared. We have something for the kids too - a special menu that is delicious yet healthy. 

Complement the dishes with our curated wine list that delivers an eclectic range of fine wines perfectly paired by a Master Sommelier.

Take your dining experience a notch higher in our VIP room, which you can book for private events or that special occasion. 

You could also unwind at our lounge bar that boasts of a collection of fine single malts, wines, beers & more. The cocktails will surprise you with infusions of fragrant Indian spices and fresh herbs, so familiar yet so rare.

Sit back and enjoy the famous Indian hospitality as our experienced team of chefs & staff cater to your whims or watch the drama unfold through the window of our open kitchen as they whip up the magic that is Indian Cuisine…
