Mix of sit in and takeaway. Nice little local restaurant and even though we moved and don't live as close we do like to pop in now and again. Great starters Devil's tomato and Squid arabi all freshly cooked. Mains nicely spiced and portions perfect. We shared one rice and one side between us which was just right, the sula... More

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
