Enjoyed a reasonably priced three courses from the festive menu. Food was tasty and service good albeit a little slow at times. Only negative was the lack of chicken in our chicken vindaloo mains (very stingy) - still enjoyed our meal though.

The food is great and we especially like the steak! The atmosphere is friendly and inviting. The price is very reasonable, we had a four course meal for 20... More

We were a group of five girls celebrating a 30th Birthday. The restaurant was beautiful and very quirky. The service was excellent and the waitresses were very helpful and pleasant. The food in my opinion was just average. Our starters by far outweighed the mains. Our starters were duck spring rolls,chilli prawns and chicken pakora . We all really enjoyed... More

We went to Zafran last night-a group of five to celebrate a birthday. The staff were friendly and helpful. The food was excellent and very good value for money. There was a good choice on the menu as well. There were lots of other diners there enjoying the good food and atmosphere. I recommend Zafran as a great place for... More
