We say…

Just outside of the city centre in Sheffield is the unique Indian restaurant, Zara’s. Crookes is just west of Sheffield’s busy shopping streets, so it’s in a great spot if you want to escape from the stress of the city on your way home after going out shopping for the day, or if you’re in the local area and want to pop in for a treat.

The restaurant is linked to Ayesha’s on Eccesal Road, and after its success has expanded to the current location of Zara’s. With a bold, yet warming, red colour scheme you’ll feel transported out of Sheffield and to an exotic paradise. The walls feature beautiful graphic sunset prints as well as plush red seats to unwind in, and the room is alive with lush green plants and fresh flowers, so your Indian experience is visual as well as gastronomic. 

As you choose your food, dig into a crunchy popadom with a zingy mango chutney. Popular starters at Zara’s include the creamy Aloog Sag Pakora, spinach, potato and more deep-fried in a delicate parcel. You could also go for the mixed Machili Tikka platter of monkfish, fried basa fish and king prawns with tasty spices. We’d always recommend the Tandoori main courses of various meats and vegetables marinated in yogurt, herbs and spices and cooked in the traditional Tandoor oven to seal in the maximum amount of flavour and taste. In particular, we love the half chicken Tandoori and the lamb Hasina kebab, as the chef’s vast experience and fantastic techniques are really showcased here. Or, why not try the Arakan Gosht, a favourite of inhabitants of the hilly south-east of Bangladesh as it is packed with hot green chilli and calamansi to give the lamb a great taste.

Zara’s is one of Sheffield’s most popular Indian restaurants, and it’s easy to see why. The mixture of favourite traditional dishes with the innovative chef specials in a friendly atmosphere ensures that diners will return to relive the experience.
