The most disgusting meal my two friends and I have ever eaten. We tried three different dishes, they were all inedible (particularly the Zafran special) and we left the restaurant rather sick. To make matters worse, it's ridiculously overpriced.

I've tried quite a few of their dishes, and I was very happy with all of them. From the starters, the soups and the traditional one are good, but very filling. The main dishes are delicious, nicely spiced, with tasty meat and good assortment on the plate. The spicy beef meal is veeery spicy (and not just by Scandinavian standards).... More

Went there with an Iranian friend and tried their lamb with safran rice. The dessert was Iranian homemade dessert with nuts. Overall a great gastronomic experience...however the ambience didn't live up to my expectations - the restaurant is kind of dark and even though there was no smoke inside looked actually smokey. A must try for Persian food lovers. Quite... More

If you are in to Persian cuisine in Copenhagen, this is the place to go. However, having tried Persian restaurants in Paris, the dining experience in terms of the quality of food did not live up to the high prices of the dishes. The portions are huge though, so you feel bloated afterwards. The grilled meats, which the other members... More

You need to have a Danish credit card to pay. Sorry not possible today in Europe. You need to accept all types of payments

The restaurant entrance is quite inconspicuous compared to the other restaurants in Blagardsgade. It is a family run business and the staff are cheerful and friendly. Meal for two, with dessert and drinks came to around DKK 650. Food quality and presentation was great, as were the portions. The biggest downside is that they accept only Danish cards and foreign...

The food nothing special, prize too high!! I took the aubergine as starter i don't recommend it, was a sauce with some pita bread that tasted just of burned garlic and some spices. The rest was normal but very expensive for the quality. They accept just danish card for payment! Service good

I visited Zafran restaurant with my bf. We both enjoyed the lamb kebab and chenjeh. However, the dolme was terrible. It was not persian dolme and it was from the can and not even homemade...over priced too for only 3 piece of dolme. We were there around 11 pm and there was an Iranian guy taking caring of our table... More

Excelent and plenty food and as hot as you expect in a persian restaurant. The service and the information we got concerning the menu was very informative as well as the kindly athmosphere in the room. The different dishes are fairly priced. We will surely be back!!
