This has got to be the best curry house ever. Well established business and good value too. Staff friendly and helpful. What more could you ask.

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...

Excellent food, served very quickly. The quality and cost of food at Zafran make this a place to dine regularly.

Hands down my favourite Indian in Croydon. The food is fresh and well made, and the menu has all the usual suspects along with some less common and even unique dishes. I typically order for delivery which arrives before time 9 times out of ten, although can take a while if there is a big sporting event or similar on... More
