Description: Contemporary Indian cuisine, located on bank street in the heart of Belfast City centre. At Safa we offer authentic Indian recipes and traditional style of cooking. Ali takes great pride in cooking to order and grinding all his own spices so it really is the closest to Indian home cooking you can get. We also have a full bar and incredible wine list.

In recognition for winning the 2016 Yes Chef Award, proprietor Ali Safa threw open the doors of his restaurant Safa on Saturday night after evening service.



It was an intimate affair. On arrival there was a refreshing glass of Prosecco and after mingling there were snacks consisting of chicken pakora, chicken tikka and onion Bhajis. As always the food was exquisite!!! Safa has grown from strength to strength and Ali is ver progressive. He was telling me that it's all systems go for the festive season. Try and pay it a visit before the festivities really kick in!!

Had a delicious meal in Safa this evening. Got poppadoms, onion bhaji and then paneer pasanda and dhansak for the mains with pilau rice. Excellent food, nice atmosphere and music and good service. Will definitely be back and would be more than happy to pay full price next time.
