Having had a couple of delicious takeaways in the past, tonight we ate in for the first time. It really didn’t disappoint! The food was excellent and really beautifully presented and the service and ambiance were totally spot on. It was my husband’s birthday and...he was presented with a complimentary desert which was a really lovely touch. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and will definitely be back!More

Very delicious food as always. I’m getting used to their food. Been to this place few times but as lockdown I don’t miss the take out services. Food ia always warm and freshly made. Specially murg kolapuri is my fav. Highly recommended to the food...lover and can’t wait to go and eat inside again with my partner. Keep it up Zaffran one. 👍👍More

Been 4-5 times in the last few months and it’s always been very good. Tandoori king prawns are amazing. Staff are very good too, especially the female waiter.

We tried this restaurant for the first time today and it is incredible. It is quite possibly the best Indian in St Albans. Food is amazing everything is delicious, portion sizes are fab and prices of dishes is not too expensive either :) perfect Indian,...you must try!More

We have both eaten in and had a take-away from Zaffran One on the Hatfield Road in recent weeks. All the food ordered has been of excellent quality, delicious and well presented. Get yourself down there!

In my opinion as a regular takeaway eater, this Indian restaurant is currently the best in St Albans. Neither cheap or expensive, quality of food is exceptional. Good size portions very well made. I can’t vouch for the sit down experience but for a delivered...takeaway it can’t be beaten.More

We had a really delicious takeaway from here last Friday night. It was cooked quickly and tasted really fresh. Generous portions, too. Will definitely visit again.

We ate as a family with children. They were so welcoming and friendly. The food is excellent, one of the best curry houses I have been to. They brought out natural yoghurt for the kids to cool their mouths! The perfect place for an early...Saturday evening meal with the kids. A great neighbourhood restaurant.More

I’ve been here 4 or 5 times recently. This is the same Zaffran that was in St Albans centre a year or two back. The food is very good. Food is cooked freshly and we all like it. I really like the chicken chilli masala...that has just the right heat for me. It’s a bit out of the way but parking is easy. Also, no after affects the morning after which you can’t say about a lot of curry houses out there!More

We went on a Monday evening. We were the only guests so not much atmosphere but the food was delicious and great value with a weektime deal. I often find curries too oily but this wasn’t and the chicken was still moist in the curry....Attentive polite service, will definitely be going back.More

I've eaten here 5 times now trying a different dish each time and each one has been delicious. I'd say it's the best Indian restaurant in St Albans
