Nice food, good service, and you can bring your own wine!

We went here almost by chance, but the place was a very good choice. The food is good, the portions are very generous (especially the rice!), and the waiters very nice. There was also the possibility of bringing your own wine at the table, and they also opened it for us with no charge. Definetely... read more

Went to the restaurant last weekend, and enjoyed fairly good Persian cuisine. The beef dish I had was fine, the prices ok, and the service prompt. On the negative side, the decor was a little plain, some chairs rickety, they use paper tablecloths, and they (currently?) don't take foreign credit cards.

Had dinner here with some friends last night. Was our first time trying persian food. The lamb was cooked to perfection and it is a great ambiance to relax have some wine and enjoy dinner with some friends. Be prepared to wait a some time for your food however.

A group of 5 went in November 2015 to the Zafran Resaturant. We were well served, the waitress was courteous and helpful. Drinks were brought promptly. However, the main courses did take around 20 minutes. There is a selection of plates ranging from lamb, to beef and chicken. Enjoyed the experience and will definitely be returning.

As a persian, I had to try this restaurant. Nice cosy and looking very local, visted by regulars and some other persians. The menu is rather traditional for a persian restaurant - anywhere in the world. So I ordered the most traditional of them all: kabab soltani. and it was great: good quality meat, nicely done rice and tasting very... More

I am Iranian and tried this restaurant with a friend while visiting Copenhagen. Our chicken kabob was clearly undercooked. They took what was left to grill it a bit more but still charged it. They charged us for water although we consumed other drinks - it's apparently customary in Denmark... I found the service very poor and the food very... More

This placed is located on a cool street in Nørrebro. I came across dozens of bicycles, many benches from other cafes filled with young Danes & a botega. The place gives mostly a Danish vibe. There is a closet if you wanna hang your coat. The staff are Danes, although they know the name of the Iranian food in Farsi.... More

The food is plentiful and good, but the service leaves a bit to be desired. The waiter attending to us wasn't particularly nice and when time came to split the bill she pose a lot of problems even saying one of us hadn't pay their part, because she didn't see the credit card receive even when she was the one...

Neighborhood Profile
Inner Noerrebro
Located just north of The Lakes, this neighbourhood is a melting pot of small quirky clothing stores, dozens of pizzerias and eateries of all types, a street almost entirely devoted to antiques, several microbreweries and even a couple of Michelin starred restaurants. Here you’ll also find Assistens Cemetery which is an ecclectic mix of tombstones as well as a recreational park and where you will find the tombstones of famous Danes, such as writer Hans Christian Anderson and physicist Niels Bohr. Inner Noerrebro is also home to one af the most popular theatres in Copenhagen, called Noerrebro Theatre. It shows both popular musicals and plays, as well as productions of a more experimental nature.
