Zara Indian Restaurant posted on 1 October 2013

Zara Indian Cuisine is an award-winning brand, featured in the Top 100 restaurants in the UK - situated in an elegant building that was once part of the Great Shelford Railway Station. Opened in 2007, Zara Indian Cuisine has built a reputation, not only in the Cambridge area, but also regionally for its high standards and exceptional specialised Indian dishes.

As you enter Zara Indian Cuisine, friendly staff will greet you and seat you at one of their stylishly dressed tables, the restaurant has a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere – with walls adorned with brightly coloured contemporary art - which adds a fresh and modern appearance to the building.

The menu offers a wide selection of regional Indian flavours from all over the subcontinent, specialising in a varied selection of fish dishes. Amongst the traditional curry favourites you will find specials such as Goan Lamb Shank, Duck Masala, Persian and Nepalese dishes.

As you read on, you will discover the menu is broken down into a number of mouthwatering sections; the starters offer a mixture of the better-known favourites such as Bhajis and King Prawn Butterfly, but also offer the more exotic dishes, such as Salmon Tikka and Crab Malaber. The main courses include an extensive selection of Tandoori Specialities, such as the Paneer Shashlick and Tandoori Trout, whilst House Specialities include dishes such as Wild Duck Breast, King Prawn Rezala and Chicken Jaipuri.

As well as a selection of Balti, Biryani, Korahi and Jalfrezi dishes, the most talked about section on the menu is the Fish Specialities. All the dishes found on the Fish Specialities menu are prepared in Zara’s very own fish sauce and include delights such as Steamed Sea Bass, Salmon Peri Peri and intriguing dishes such as Boal - which is a Bengal Catfish dish.
