I visited zafran with a few friends with the intentions of having a lovely meal, this was not the case. On arriving at the restaurant guests were was placing a complaint right in front of us. The food itself was average, quite small in portion if I'm being honest. The customer service was appalling and I was shocked at how... More

First time visit to Zafran a few weeks ago and it was very very good. Traditional curry dishes cooked perfectly. Friendly service, well priced ... definitely the best in Croydon area.

The food came, and the portions were very... More

This is now my favourite Indian in the area. Came here with family, everyone really enjoyed the food. Atmosphere is warm and inviting and the staff are fantastic. Can't recommend this place enough for a great meal in a cosy intimate space.

Just had a very dis-appointing dinner the curry was in-edible, the chicken was extremely tough. Sent it back and the replacement was under cooked. When I said I wasn't paying for the food they threatened me with the police. Rather than being apologetic they blamed me for being fussy...hello your serving sub-standard food. After eating from this restaurant regularly over... More

Friendly staff, excellent service & great food. Good vegetarian options & very child friendly. Menu clearly shows which dishes are mild or spicy & staff will help if required. If you're in Addiscombe & fancy an Indian, this is the restaurant for you.

We have used this place as a Takeaway for years in fact since it opened and have never been disappointed with the service and quality food. 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...
