Zaika Lounge: Hot New Restaurant Opened At Rupa’s Mall

Zaika Lounge located on the second floor of Rupa’s Mall joins a list of new restaurants that are changing the food & drink scene in Eldoret.

As chilly weather grips Eldoret after the long holiday season, it does not take away from the fact that the city of champions has in recent months warmed up to new establishments. Almost every month there’s a new venue opening; making it increasingly hard to keep up with the town’s explosive restaurant scene.

Zaika is a swanky and hip lounge/restaurant that opened just over two weeks ago but, has since been causing a stir online. A simple search on Social Media will result in multiple tags, hashtags, photos, and videos from excited users who have had the pleasure of visiting the lounge.

If you’ve never been and don’t understand all the hype; here’s everything you need to know about Zaika Lounge:

The Setup

Zaika means a sense of taste. Staying true to its meaning; the lounge is set up to exude class and comfort from the upholstery to the hanging light fixtures to the contemporary wall art.

The interior design was done by Farooq Jeylan of PerfectSplash who did a great job to combine high-quality and comfortable seats with beautiful pendant lighting and rustic yet crafty wall fixtures that blend well to provide the perfect ambiance.

Zaika Lounge has plenty of seating allowance that includes tables, chairs, and standard restaurant booths. There are two-person tables for dining couples, four-person tables, and booths for larger parties. The fabric furniture and overall layout is aesthetically pleasing and enhances the dining experience. The menu is quite extensive and includes Indian, Italian, Chinese, Local, and Continental cuisines.

Bar & Lounge

A quick thing to note when you approach the bar area is the floating wooden deck made of cider that smartly separates the bar from the dining area. Also, behind the counter is a unique bubbly wall fixture with lighting effects that set the tone to wind down and enjoy a cold drink. Adjacent to the bar is the Dj booth with a DJ on call every day to play your favorite house music, Indian tunes and Jazz and Blues.
