Zaffron serves contemporary North Indian fare in a modern space best described as rustic bistro meets industrial chic. Acquaint your taste buds with some chaat or savoury hors d’oeuvres, then sink your teeth into dahi puri, bhel puri or papdi chaat to experience the complex flavour of this popular street food. Think fried flour crisps, coriander, spices, puffed rice, nuts, chickpea noodles, onions embellished with yoghurt or tangy tamarind sauce—simply addictive. The mains are served in generous sharing portions, so for a party of four or more, the Zaffron tandoori platter of expertly prepared chunks of charred chicken, fish and mutton will feed everyone well. The dum chicken biryani is a must-try. Delivered to the table resembling a baked gratin, uncover this dish and you’ll soon realise the chef’s ingenuity in enveloping the fragrant biryani spices, chicken thigh and basmati rice within a layer of naan. Flavours here are generally mild to accommodate family dining, but to satiate seasoned aficionados of Indian cuisine, tune up the spice level a notch or two with an extra hit of garam masala for the biryani, elevating the overall experience.
Zaffron now uses the eMenu self-ordering system. While table-to-kitchen order processing is now faster, this convenience does come with a caveat: order in the sequence that you want your dishes served, or the dessert or main may arrive before your starter.
