Ali takes great pride in cooking to order and grinding all his own spices so it really is the closest to Indian home cooking you can get. We also have a full bar and incredible wine list.

During a weekend visit to Belfast we found Safa by accident when looking for somewhere for lunch. We were not disappointed, food was great and reasonably priced. Service was excellent.

Took us a while to work out where it was. Well worth the hassle, the food was exceptional & busy for midweek. Will definitely be back!

“Hidden gem with all you would look for in contemporary Indian food and more !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012

I was staying at the Fitzgerald Hotel on business and decided to venture out in search of some Indian food. Found Safa on trip advisor. Tuesday night so didn't book. I was delighted with whole experience. Will be going back at every opportunity when in Belfast. Can't fault it.
