“Friendly and enjoyable food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2011

We only arrived in Copenhagen late this afternoon and chose this restaurant for it's rating as well as proximity to our hotel. The aroma of the food on entering the venue was a good sign. Service was friendly without being intrusive. Starters were good. Main was ok although vegetarian option could have been a bit more adventurous. A good option for our first night here.

“The best meal ever in the whole Copenhagen area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2011

This hidden restaurant is a true satisfying surprise. Loved the atmosphere, the food and the service. Price range is average considering other places in Copenhagen. It serves halal meals for Muslims. Again don't miss the food here. I recommend chello kabaaab kibdda and shesh kabbab. Keep in mind that we tried the salad, main course and dessert in this review.

“First time – wouldn’t be my last time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2011

This was my first Persian/Iranian food adventure and I can happily say that it was a great first experience at Zafran. The restaurant stands cozy on an equally cozy street in Copenhagen. The street is always full of life, buzzing with people and lined up with restaurants offering different cuisines. Zafran is moderately decorated with antique knick knacks that voice a Persian ambience. The fact that there are Iranian people eating there as regulars, should also confirm the fact that the food is authentic, and authentic it is. We were there for dinner and started with the Grilled mashed eggplant, Dolma (grape leaves filled with rice and veggies) and pickled vegetables, which was fantastic! Although, the eggplant is to die for – really! For main course we got a mix of grilled Lamb and minced beef kebabs on skewers and saffron chicken kebab on skewer. Man o man! The chicken kebabs were simply amazing. The kebabs come along with veggies, rice and a sauce to match with on the side - all good. The appetizers come along with a bread that is very delicious and soft, and goes very well with the eggplant dish. The marination for all that they make is well thought of and well spiced up with slight nuances of Indian and Pakistani food.

Have I left out anything? Oh yes, the service is prompt and friendly. Ask for an explanation if the menu looks confusing and the staff is happy to oblige, but honestly go there for the food – it is really very good!!

“Good Persian Food in Copenhagen”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2009

If you're looking for an ethnic treat while visiting Copenhagen, check out the only Persian restaurant off of Norrebrogade on a quaint walking street. The atmosphere is very nice and culturally rich. You can bring your own wine. Try the barbequed kebabs - delicious.
