Zafron or Rumi's Kitchen? Had lunch recently at Zafron restaurant for the first time in Sandy Springs. Had been to Rumi's many times over the years and wondered how this would compare. First, it was nice to have a quiet comfortable booth to visit with friends. At Rumis, it is generally very noisy and at night, very unpleasant due to... More

To be clear, I went once, for a late lunch....so my experience there is limited. Food was very good...insanely fresh and legitimately Mediterranean menu. One of the entrees just took far longer to hit the table than it should. Beautiful, very hip interior decor...great vibe. Prices were good. It's very similar to Rumi's (also great Sandy Springs Mediterranean), but it's... More

Wow! Just Wow. My husband and I enjoyed a lovely dinner at Zafron's tonight. The space is lovely and the instrumental Persian music was relaxing and provided the perfect touch. The complimentary naan and plate of fresh herbs, feta cheese, olives and nuts was an awesome beginning. We shared the stuffed cabbage leaves appetizer 2 @$7.00, which was delicious. My... More

The food is very good and very generous portions. There are a number of Persian restaurants in Sandy Springs and this is one of the best.

We came here with another couple on a recent Saturday night. The restaurant is nicely appointed and not so loud you can have a nice conversation. We ordered the Hummus for an appetizer, which was tasty and flavorful. I ordered the Soltan's feast which was a very generous portion. My wife and one of our friends ordered the Lamb Kabob,... More

It's a small restaurant, so I recommend that you make a reservation. The GPS gave me the run around, but finally took me there. I met with a group of friends and ordered the Chinjeh- prime sirloin, garlic yogurt, lubia..basmati rice $19.00 & a glass of Piatelli Malbec $11.00. Delish! Huge portions! All plates were huge. Even the salads were... More
