Occupying an enviable position in St Alban’s city centre – up the lane and onto quiet Waddington Road from the hustle and bustle of the main thoroughfare of St Peters Street – Zaffran epitomises the taste of South Asian cuisine, embodying the colours, flavours and aromas of the Indian subcontinent in name and menu. For the head chef in charge of this kitchen, every meal he prepares or oversees is as important as the last, or the first, meaning you’re in for a top-quality Indian restaurant experience each and every time. Ideal for a quick lunch if you’re working or living nearby, Zaffran’s expansive Sugondha Lounge is an option for larger groups, whether you simply have a lot of friends or are looking to celebrate.
We took some friends from Holland for an evening meal which they thoroughly enjoyed. We were looked after attentively and the quality throughout was excellent. Good food, excellent service, convivial atmosphere.
