superb

Just ridiculously good food, I always have the vegetable dhansak as it is perfect, my wife always goes for the Goan Paneer. Both very tasty dishes, the peshwari naans are also a great accompaniment. Staff are always very friendly and helpful.

We asked for home delivery after a crasy sightseeing walking day. It was Nice and on time. Rates more than corrects.

Recently started to return to Zafran and wish we had done so sooner, The food is lovely with a mix of tradtional curries and house specials. The service can be a little on the slow side but it is well worth the wait. Once you have been a few times they treatyou as family. Have also had a couple of... More

I have been to this restaurant twice and the food has been great both times. I have never booked but it does get busy at random times. You can't be really hungry when you go as the food takes ages to come, but it is well worth the wait. Its hot spicy and delicious. Admittedly it lacked ambiance, I wouldn't... More

Too lazy to cook on New Year's day evening, we dropped down to Addiscombe for a curry. We hadn't been to the Zafran for many years. The welcome was warm. The menu is good, with the usual curry options plus some house specialities. We both chose a fish main course. The food was not quick to arrive but it was... More

I eat here fairly regularly - the service is friendly, the food is yummy and always a treat to go. Sometimes the service can be a little slow, but I overlook that because of the food! I think it is best Indian in the area.

Sag Paneer and King Prawn Passanda to die for. Lovely little restaurant. Perfection took a little while but it was a Saturday night and the place was packed. Good service. Will definitely visit again and highly recommend.

My girlfriend and I popped into this restaurant based on the numerous positive reviews on trip advisor. Unfortunately our experience did not live up to the expectation. From the get go, the waiters seemed distracted and it took a while to order. Once we had ordered, it took over an hour for our food to arrive. When it did, it... More
