This was my second meal in Safa and I will not make it so long before I return again! Our meal was delicious! All the staff, (particularly Wesley) were extremely helpful and attentive. I would highly recommend ordering a lamb dish for the main, this is locally sourced meat and it is cooked to perfection! A beautiful restaurant with a... More

I mean that in a good way; we tried here expecting a good Indian meal; what we got was so much better. The dishes are certainly Indian; particularly the main courses but I wouldn't let this stop you if you're not a massive fan of spices; the starters alone had a great variety and I would say are slights twists...

Unfortunately, the reality fell short of this expectation. Firstly, the heat in the restaurant was almost unbearable. It was a... More
