    Regarding food I was expecting an above average restaurant for what I had read, however what I got was just another Indian restaurant... no different than the hundreds scattered across the country. We were served the tasting menu and we had no other option (we had no clue). Service was okay, but the music was quite loud sometimes. Overall, just another Indian restaurant...definitely not worth the price of admission.

    It's always nice to go back to this restaurant. It offers very good food and very authentic to its roots.

    Absolutely wonderful evening spent with family. 7 of us sat outside and enjoyed a delicious dinner. Appetizers of Pakora and samosas. Main sharing dishes of lentils, lamb, chicken and shrimp with rice and naan. This was some of the BEST Indian food we've ever had. Service was excellent.

    The waiters were really great, friendly and attentive but the food was so blah. Even the rice was soggy and the other dishes completely lacked any flavor. If you are used to eating real Indian food, it is disappointing.

    Booked this against other reviews and a little disappointed, didn't acknowledge that we had booked a table despite advising them twice. Tried to get us to have their choice of meal and not impressed when we wanted to choose our own and wine was an issue, didn't have the bottle we chose and brought a replacement which wasn't the same tasting notes. Second choice available and very nice. Not a flavoursome curry and lacking in spices and whilst meat good quality we wouldn't return

    It was my second time in Zaafran and they surprised me again, not only because they served me the best Indian food in town (probably due to the introduction of some Mozambican influence) but also due to the friendliness of the staff, from the owner, a gentleman from Dio, to everybody. We were really treated and we were even taught about how to better enjoy that exquisite delicatess. Everything has a price and it it not so cheap, but, nothing scandalous:-) Good value for your pampering...

    The restaurant was nice enough and the service was good. The owner suggested which dips would go particularly well with the samosas which was a nice touch. Additionally the waiter suggested how one of the dishes should be eaten. We opted for the tasting menu which was 20 euros per person, 10 euros for a child for two starters (onion pakora and samosa) and cheese naan then five mains again served with naan and rice, followed by three desserts. The portions are not big because it is a tasting menu. However, we left the restaurant satisfied and stuffed to the gills.

About the restaurant

O Zaafran é um restaurante de cozinha de inspiração indiana. A ementa apresentada procura traçar uma viagem que teve inicio na India, em particular na região do Gujarat, seguiu-se a passagem por Moçambique e por fim a chegada a Lisboa. É como a viagem de regresso de Vasco da Gama.

O Zaafran é um espaço que reflecte a fusão vivida pelas pessoas que o fazem e que vivem algures nesse encontro das culturas indiana, árabe, moçambicana e portuguesa.
