This place is personification of refined Indian cuisine. A perfect blend of aroma, spices, tandoor and flavours. Restaurant is well lit & spacious. Zaffran has the best chicken in town.All the curries and gravy items were spiced with balance, breads and rotis cooked to perfection, biryanis infused with saffron, great desserts. Their chicken zaffarani shorba with subtle flavours of saffron was just perfect. Undoubtedly the best Indian food around. Safe to go for prior reservation.
We went here on a weekend and my word this place is insanely over rated. The food is very average. The taste is not great at all.
To add to it the service is pathetic. It took them forever to serve the food.
Coming to the price, its a plain rip off, nothing else. We ordered starter and a main course and it cost like 800 per person. I can imagine the overhead for a restaurant in a big mall would be high, but then the quality of food and service should live up to it. I am better off having a buffet in a 3 star at that price.
Zaffran is a great place to go with a big group. It is located in Malad west. Restaurant is Air condotioned. Mughlai and North Indian both are available. Pomfret are also available as a seafood. Combination of veg zaffrani and any Paneer dish is really great. If you want to sit at home and have their foods then you can opt for take away.
A regular feature of all Zaffran outlets,as told by my friends -they have great food and horrible service. Was here with roommate and we ordered for Murg hariyali tikka, Butter chicken and naan. No doubt that the food is so tasty and portions are so big that even 1 gravy dish can be shared with 3 people -but the servers are least interested in their job. Nobody came to refill our water glasses until we called repeatedly, the food order was taken after 20 minutes, food came after we asked for it twice-complete mismanagement. Saving grace is that food is simply yum!
Zaffran... Good food, good ambiance and great interiors! We go to Zaffran for a quiet dinner or for a good meal with a large group. The menu has a plethora of options to choose from, both in Vegetarian as well as Non-Vegetarian. The place won't burn a a hole in your pocket either.
Recommendation: Try the Afghani Chicken and the Signature Chenna Payesh. Delicious!
Went here to celebrate my friends wedding anniversary! Had heard a lot about this place and was very excited to try it out! the food was really amazing and met all my expectations.. i loved the biryani and the tandoori fry chicken.. The fish fry was also really good.. the ambience is so nice and the interiors is so well done! A nice place to celebrate a birthday as well ... They play the birthday song and the waiters come and perform for you!
...but service is not upto the mark. we were a party of 5 people,2 veggies and rest non veggies and we ordered 1 biryani,2 lachha parathas, 1 naan, 1 veg zaffrani, 1 paneer dish and 1 chicken dish and the order was so mismanaged,we first had to wait half hour for the veggies to arrive then another 5 minutes for the parathas and naan to arrive,then another 15 minutes for biryani to arrive and another 15 minutes for the chicken dish for the non veggies! so chaotic! even though it wasn't completely full! food is fantastic no doubt and portions are very good.
I go to Zaffran quite often even though I live an hour away from the location! That speaks volumes of their service, ambience & food. This is one restaurant that serves delicious veg as well as non-veg food. We didn't have to wait too long for the food to arrive and a special mention of Sharmila's service - we didn't have to call her even once to serve us as she knew just when to arrive and when to disappear - leaving us with our own 'space'. The music is not too loud which is good as conversations are free-flowing.
Tried the place on a friends recommendation. It was a wonderful experience to be guided & placed as requested in spite of the weekend rush. We tried the Galouti kababs & Paneer aachari...Well marinated & tender pieces of paneer just made my day. Starters were followed with Roomali roti & Chicken tikka masala. I had the best Chicken tikka masala of my life (Not exaggerating).. The head chef was on floor available for us to share the experience.. A weekend made special just by the food.... Keep it up !!! Con: Long wait on weekends..To avoid rush book early...before 8pm.
I have visited this place many times and it never disapppoints me!!!!the food is just out of the world!!!the kebabs here are soft and juicy a little bland.......but while placing an order u can specify that u want it spicy.The zaffrani shorba is yummy,its makes u feel warm..............And the BIRYANI......MURGH TIKKA BIRYANI is awesome a perfect blend of spices,perfect moisture ,perfect texture ,heavenly aroma........just perfect!!!! the staff is cheerful and friendly the ambiance is just too good .It is warm . overall a great place.
Lovely food, amazing ambience and lovely service. The starters and the main-course are absolutely rich in flavor and taste. And portions are generous too. However what stole the show was their Biryani. Simply yummy. For a Sunday the service was very quick. A must visit for all family and friends.
Food was amazing and the water based ambiance was very nice.I went to this place on top of Infinity Mall on a weekend and on weekends you don't expect quick service and was mentally prepared for it. The place was full and my apprehensions grew. But I was really pleasantly surprised as the service was really quick. And the food quality was also great despite the high rush. Overall great !
