Dedicated to invention as well as tradition


Fresh modern décor - high quality Indian food!

Zara's vision conceptualised long before it started the journey by opening the first ever restaurant to be housed in a long and elegant building that was once part of Great Shelford railway station in May 2007 - completely transforming the building to reflect the taste of the 21st century. Once again Zara showcases its creativity with a unique fresh modern look, this time, at the Royal Oak situated between Danbury & Woodham Mortimer.
