Me and my cousins went here to have our dinner. Had heard good things about zaffran, right from food, ambiance, service. We were 7 people. To start off, we had ordered starters which had Tandoori broccoli, one kebab and one mushroom starter.
Of all the 3 starters, the only starter that was really good was Mushroom. It was lip smackingly delicious. The other two were absolute horror, the kebab had only 6 pieces and the broccoli was just dipped in a sauce and the top of the broccoli was just made slightly black to make us feel it was made in tandoor. Restaurant of such stature makes starters like this??To end our horror ordeal with the starters, we decided to jump on to the main course. We ordered dal makhni, zafrani paneer makhni, subz handi and various rotis. To be very sincere, none of the veggies were good, they were sweet. I just din understand what had they made. The dal makhni was absolute bland, tasteless and with no salt in it. We had to force ourselves to just eat the crap that was served. To end our dinner, we decided to order biryani and yellow dal. The only veg option in biryani was veg biryani, no dum biryani. The waiter who served the biryani was not aware of how to serve it. The upper portion was given to few people and the main mixture was given to other people. So, some guys had only rice and some guys had only the mixture. And mind you, none of that was even eatable, it was just sour. Biryani is sour?? (had heard that this place is famous for biryani). The yellow dal was really good. The only thing of what we had ordered and was eatable was mushroom starter and the yellow dal. Overall, Ambiance - 3.5 / 5. Service - 4 / 5, Food - 2 / 5. Cheerz!! Happy Eating!!
