We arrived late on Sunday evening, 11 of us without a booking and the Staff welcome us without hesitation and quickly rearranged seating to accommodate us. An excellent meal with delicious food well served by friendly attentive staff. There's not a lot of choice in eating on a Sunday night in Belfast and we were really lucky to find this... More

Really enjoyed my meal here. It's a small space but beautifully decorated. The food was delicious and the service faultless. Looking forward to a return visit.

Once again, I wish that Tripadvisor had a better ratings system as I feel that I would like to say that this, overall, was somewhere between average and very good. There was a pleasant welcome, and friendly, helpful service. Poppadoms and chutneys were served in a different way from normal (good) and were very tasty (always a good sign). The... More

Booked Safa on the back of good reviews on here and was very disappointed. Had the Lamb saag and chicken molee, both tasteless. From looking at other reviews it may be that this was a one off but disappointing all the same.

We were treated like royalty from we got in, the service was pristine. Very friendly and attentive waiter and all staff were very warm and welcoming at all times, even the chef took time out to say hello.... More
