The food is amazing, the staff are great, always happy to help, there is a mixture of takeaways and sit in, we use both. We have been eating here regularly since they opened about 17 years ago, and the standards have not dropped at all. Would highly recommend this resturant to anyone, and often do.

The staff are friendly and attentive, the food is of a very high standard for the price range, the restaurant is clean and well presented, the only criticism I have is they need to replace the plastic wicker baskets that your naan breads are served in, to say they are past their prime is an understatement, but other then that...

I cannot fault the quality of the food here and that's quite an accolade coming from a fussy person like myself. I normally go for either a standard Vindaloo with extra green chillies or the Jalfrezi, both of which are always cooked to perfection and I'd go as far to say the finest I've ever eaten in Croydon. I've eaten... More

We are so lucky to have a local currry restaurant as good as Zafran. It's our default place to eat so tends to be taken for granted. Last night I had a lamb dupiaza for a change and it was soooo good. The lamb was as tender as could be in a sauce that was rich and perfectly balanced with... More

This is a long standing curry restaurant in Addiscombe, and great for locals as you do not have to go into Croydon to get a decent meal. The quality of the food is excellent, and high standards have been maintained. However, I dislike the way all the waiters are continuously asking you if you want more beer or wine. I... More

Been going for a few years, and food is always good, but could do with another chef, as went last night, and waited over an hour for food. Staff were apologetic, and gave us a free drink. But overall a good night out
