A wonderfully intimate Indian restaurant with rustic traditional design touches including wood carvings, Zara serves modern, colourful dishes prepared using time-honoured cooking techniques. There is also a dedicated gin bar where talented mixologists prepare exciting signature cocktails, with gin tasting sessions being popular events.

A tremendous selection of aromatic Indian delicacies are served on the Zara menu, starting off with signature seafood recipes like the Goanese king prawns cooked in an iron wok with spices, fresh herbs and orange zest. Traditional tandoori dishes are a popular choice, and include options such as honey-glazed lamb cutlet, while the curry range offers up levels of spice for every palate.

The gin bar at Zara in Bishop's Stortford is a chic, modern setting to enjoy creative gin cocktails prepared with theatrical flair from the talented mixologists. There is also a diverse wine list served, and a good selection of beers.

A unique Indian restaurant with a sultry, intimate feel, Zara is a 13-minute walk from Bishop's Stortford Rail Station.

    The restaurant is lovely designed. We felt very welcome and had good conversations with the staff and appreciated their recommendations. We were impressed by the large cocktail menu and good wine selection. The lamb was outstanding and the chicken was perfectly cooked. We were not a fan of the paneer but the chef cooks it to the tasting of his regulars so it was not a quality issue but personal taste. It was taken off our bill immediately. Overall brilliant service, delicious food and definitely a place I will take my friends and family to.

    Food was exquisite, although service was slow and they brought main course before starters.

    Excellent food as always, friendly service... sadly the food was a bit slow to arrive.

    Goanese King Prawn dish was beautiful, as were all the sides.

    Nice ambience. We visited on a Saturday night when it was very busy. The table wasn't ready when we arrived but we didn't have to wait too long. Nice table, lots of elbow room even though we were a party of six. Initially the service was a bit slow but it picked up. The food was outstanding. Everybody in my party was impressed. Overall an enjoyable and memorable evening. The best Indian restaurant in Stortford.
