It first opened in early 2014 under the name of Zabardast <small>[https://www.flickr.com/photos/kake_pugh/14231034569/ photo]</small>, specialising in wraps with bread choices such as paratha or tortilla and filling choices such as desi omelette or lamb kofta. This was primarily a takeaway, though in good weather there were also chairs and tables outside on the pavement.

In January 2015 a spin-off called Behtareen opened in a previously unused space to the side <small>[https://www.flickr.com/photos/kake_pugh/15604699203/ photo]</small>. This initially did a wider range of Indian food, but by April 2017 it had scaled back to doing mainly biryani. It had a narrow frontage but more space behind, so actually had interior seating. Zabardast and Behtareen were connected internally, and Zabardast customers were permitted to sit in the Behtareen seating.

Zabardast opened [[Zabardast, 25b Centrale|another branch in Centrale]] in November 2017.

By December 2019 Behtareen no longer had a separate entrance or website, and the whole thing seemed to be operating under the Zabardast brand.

<div class="history">
It was previously
an internet cafe called [http://www.cyberzone.co.uk/ Cyberzone], which [https://p10.secure.hostingprod.com/@spyblog.org.uk/ssl/london_cyberpunk_tourist_guide/2009/10/croydon-cyberzone-internet-cafe---now-defunct.html closed in 2009].

We aren't sure if there was anything there immediately after Cyberzone, but it was vacant as of May 2012 <small>https://www.flickr.com/photos/kake_pugh/7155638229/ photo]</small>, and remained so until Zabardast opened in early 2014.
