A Pleasant experience at my local

I have only praises for this small and exceptional Indian restaurant based 15 mins from East Croydon Stn. My husband and I thought we would give our local Indian a try, and the fact it was packed for a wednesday night was a good sign.

Visited Zafran on a Wednesday night for a meal with my son, the food was good as we have had there in the past. I was expecting our bill to be for the banqueting menu, when it came it was a lot more than expected. I asked if what we had was included on the banqueting menu and was told... More

I've had a few meals at Zafran now, and each time the food has been very good and the service prompt and very courteous. There is a good variety of dishes with well presented textures and tastes. I'd highly recommend.

Just ordered a home delivery from Zafran and within 10 minutes of plating up it went to the bin. The amount of oil Zafran uses means that fracking has must have come to Addiscombe. A heart attack on a plate. I phoned the restaurant to give them the feedback and said that since eating curries in London since 1956 this... More

Revisited after many years to try their banquet night. What a joy this was. On a Tuesday evening the place was packed and buzzing. The food was very flavoursome and really good value and service. Will certainly start going regularly again.

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
