Tonight for the first time we booked a table in the Restaurant for a birthday treat and we were not disappointed. The staff were attentive and friendly, the service was good, with the drinks...

Excellent food, served very quickly. The quality and cost of food at Zafran make this a place to dine regularly.

Hands down my favourite Indian in Croydon. The food is fresh and well made, and the menu has all the usual suspects along with some less common and even unique dishes. I typically order for delivery which arrives before time 9 times out of ten, although can take a while if there is a big sporting event or similar on... More

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.

Thank Sue M
