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

What can I say, the standard here has never dropped. The staff are very attentive but not intrusive. Food was 1st class. Definetly the best Indian I have been to. Good quality produce. Buffett menu is very good value. Wines and beers reasonably priced. Highly recommend both the food and staff.

Recently visited Zafran whilst staying with family in Croydon... Service was fantastic and food was of excellent standard. It was a Saturday night so very busy. This place held a really relaxed atmosphere and prices were also very reasonable, Considering we had 3 courses. Will definitley visit again when I'm In the area.

This is a lovely little restaurant. We have visited on many occasions for the Sunday Buffet which really is good value for money. You get a nice starter and a delicious buffet selection (chicken, prawn, vegetables and lamb curries). The service is always attentive. I'd definitely recommend this restaurant and will return again.

We went yesterday at 9pm for a New Year Eve dinner. First off, the food was very good. Extremely well presented, piping hot and very tasty. The downside is that it took an hour and 20 minutes to get our first bit of food! Now the restaurant was full, yes. But I don't buy into that being an excuse. A... More
