Description: Contemporary Indian cuisine, located on bank street in the heart of Belfast City centre. At Safa we offer authentic Indian recipes and traditional style of cooking. 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.

A friendly place, just above kelly's cellars. Three of us went out and had starters, mains, soft drinks, a bottle of wine, sides of naan, for £71. Reasonable, given the amount of food we had. Very friendly service. tried the coriander and chilli naan, which was a taste explosion! Glad I tried it but be warned its hot hot hot!
Lamb rogan josh is a great fruity curry without being too spicy. My friends lovedtheir choices too. I highly recommend the starters platter to share, so you can try a bit of everything. Only negative was they didn't have poppadums and dips on arrival, like is often the way in Indian restaurants. Beautiful decor and relaxed friendly atmostphere. would definitely try this place again for a great meal out.

We were a group of 12 people who went dinner on a trip to Belfast. Food and service was average . For the price, quantity and quality was not up to mark. Food is more suited for European customers.

I arrived at 7pm and it was 8:20 before our main course arrived. The food is really very good and decor/ambience etc is good but the service was just so slow it kind of spoiled the experience.

The bill took 25 minutes to get!!

If you love Indian food and have a whole evening to kill this is the place to go :-)

Dropped in late Friday night and got a table without having to wait. The place was almost full when we arrived but service was efficient and friendly nevertheless. Excellent, crispy papadums started the meal out well. We had Dopiaza and Saag Wala (both Chicken Tikka variants), both were top notch. The Saag Aloo side dish was fantastic, and the Peshawari Naan was perfect. The dessert (Devil cake) was a bit underwhelming, but aside from this we have no complaints.
