I visited Zafran at Mirdif City Center recently for lunch and really enjoyed the experience. I have to rate it 5/5. Tomato soup and Papdi Chat were excellent. Watermelon juice with dash of mint was superb as well. For main course we chose Veg Feast...More

We always enjoy the meals here; the mixed vege plate is a great one and more than enough for 1 person; we liked the staff and their sincere kindness to all customers... The prices are reasonable... Don't forget to try the masala tea...and NAN bread😄

We don't usually go to Indian restaurants because my husband doesn't like the cuisine, but we decided to join our friends who tried it and strongly recommended it. The atmosphere was quiet which is what we needed in a busy mall. The waiters were friendly...More

The Marina
It’s hard to believe that only a decade ago there was
no marina. Opened in 2003, the man-made marina runs
along a 3km stretch of shoreline. A heady mix of
luxurious hotels, apartment buildings, and cafes, the
marina hosts regular community events and markets, and
is a wonderful place to while away an afternoon or
evening. Spectacular at night when the skyscrapers
glisten, here you can enjoy dinner on the beach next

There is no dress code as such, but if you are planning to eat outside the restaurant overlooking the Marina, then I would suggest casual jeans - as it can be breezy. Enjoy!
