I must say,the food was too delicious and freshly prepared.I would like to say 'A BIG THANKS' to my dear friend Mrunal Kore, as he suggested me to visit and try out the dishes,otherwise I would have missed the exceptional and outstanding ambience with great food.I would say that,one one should actually go and live that experience.

Again best of luck bro (Mrunal) and keep up the hard work.

Awesome Biryani

You will get really good Biryani here. From Mutton to Chicken, it is really awesome. The meat is so tender, it just melts in your mouth. There is vegetarian Biryani as well, it tastes really good.

Zaffran is open till late, so if you are craving for a nice Biryani late in the night, head to Zaffran.

Best Mughlai food

A good place if you want to have Mughlai food.The place was not too crowded. Subtle lighting, warm music makes it a relaxing affair. Paneer tikka masala and chicken biryani was yum .The chicken was deliciously cooked and was so tender.The food came in real quick and was super delicious. The staff was super hospitable, nice and courteous. Its worth for the price as the quantity is also good.

Palatial Experience

Zaffran gives you a palatial experience of ambience, food and dining. The restuarant has a very royal look to it. Awesome Mughlai food, lovely starters The chenna payesh is relishing with a coconuty flavour. The canopies were something different and was a good change. But the real show stealer was the roomali papad. It's a huge masala papad made of dough. The service maybe a little slow but the food is worth the wait.

Spice of India

Spicy biryani n tikka draw crowds to this oddly nightclub / spaceship looking joint near CST. This is a spot for the late night foodie whose taste buds may be a bit more discerning than those of the people eating on the street in front of Bade Miya. The chow is unbelievably tasty if completely traditional and it comes fast and cheap. Their chicken biryani, chicken tikka or the famous creamy butter chicken are to die for...

Food in the night !

One place where you can get some awesome food even at 3 in the night. We generally travel to this place after we have late night outs. They have some mouth wattering dishes. Their chieckn kali mirch is to die for, esp who like it little spicy. Their desserts is awesome too, do try their chenna payesh. YOu will love it. Ambience is perfect for late night and staff is courteous too.

Food is great

but service is not so great! I don't know why,but I have been here twice and never been able to get my order in less than 30 minutes and that always makes me sad. Food is so amazing though and portions are so big that you can share 1 biryani among 2 starving people easily! Everything on the menu is amazing,my hubby loves the gelauti kebab so that is special recommendation. I wish they improve the service though.

Best Biryani in Town

There are soo many biriyani places in Mumbai, but no place comes even close to Zaffran. The biriyani here is so well made, not too oily, not bland, not too spicy either. qute well done packed with flavor. Just the right biriyani.

USP-: Till 3 in night its open...with tasty food.

After been to Zaffran in Rcity, i really had no mood going again to this Zaffran which is in Crawford market..coz i had been a victim of their slow service and not so great food there in rcity..... but then thought to give it a try to this Zaffran coz i did read somewhere thats its open evern after 12 ... SO to try my luck ..last week we decided to go there...Reached Zaffran at odd hour of about 2:30 in night... and to my suprise...the hotel was not only open but also they quicky served us with our order with such an attentiveness at that time in night.... Hatts Off Guys....
Awesome Aalo paratha and Phirni.... :)
no need to add its a delight for non vegiterians..... for which Zaffran is famous. :)
It was very thrilling and nice experience.

north indian delite

The ambiance at Zaffran is fantastic. Waiters and other staff very friendly. Food, what can I say, one of the best Indian food I have eaten - authentic Indian food, spiced to perfection, it was worth paying a bit more than what one would pay in India. Definitely recommend it.Must try is north Indian and Mughlai food, which was outstandingly good. Biryani and Rumali Roti papad were excellent..

Zaffran is a gem

Zaffran is a gem when it comes to rich Mughlai food. Although they have Chinese and other options too ( which I haven never tried so far), I can bet that Mughlai takes the cake! Zaffran is a major hangout for meat eaters but I did see plenty of pure vegetarian eaters around which is proof that vegetarians have enough to stuff themselves with as there are plenty of options to chose from. There are plenty of dishes which can be termed as a diner's delight!! - Paneer makhni, Butter chicken, Yakhni Pulao and the list goes on...They have options of full and half quantities as well which is good as one would like to try plenty of options when dining there. Service is good and prices are moderately high. The USP of this restaurant is the fact that it stays open (and crowded!) till the wee morning hours making it perfect destination for those hungry night owls. Its been sometime since I've visited Zaffran and I look forward to going back soon.

Both the outlets serve excellent food

I have always remembered Zaffran as the place we would haunt after late night partying to enjoy the hookah till the wee hours of the morning until 'we' considered it was now a safe time to head back home.

The food at Zaffran has always been set at high standards with its Mughlai spread and stunning interiors. The kebab starters, the main course, the breads and the dessert - Zaffran is completely value for money!

Best Punjabi food in town !

This is the best place for punjabi food i feel..the black dal and the paneer tikka masala are yummmmm..goes with the combination of roomali roti ( contains eggs ) and biryani to make it a perfect punjabi meal !! couldnt ask for more..and the best part is that they deliver till upto 4 am ! So if ur partying wid friends at ur place on a saturday nite and want to call for punjabi instead of the regular Dominoes then definitely Zaffran !

Delicious Food - Surpise for a Veggie

Visited Zaffran for a Team Lunch of 20 people. Though the place is cramped, was pleasantly surprised with the Vegetarian Food unlike other similar places which are known only for their Non-Veg offerings.. Though the choice is limited, the food was excellent. Best part is the Biryani which is not to be missed. The kebabs (Panner Pudina and Veg Galouti) were mouth watering and the Pudina Naan well complimented the Paneer Tikka. The services was also very quick and efficient. Will definitely recommend the joint for Indian / Mughlai Fare.

Love the chicken makhni,tandoori chicken & butter roomali rotis

Service is very good
Nothing great about the ambiance though
For me it's an iconic non vegetarian restaurant in town.

visited this place today at 12 noon on the recommendation of a friend!
Ambience 5/10 ( cramped narrow seating, stuffy )
service 4/10 ( that too at the start of the business day )
food - the chicken banjara kebab gets a 7/10 , the mutton biryani gets a 02/10 - the rice was soaking wet in oil, the patchy biryani masala put me off, overdone mutton !
i'm very disappointed with this first and most certainly last visit to zaffran!

Great ambiance and great food

I heard about this place from a friend. So, I went there with a group of friends and sat in the lounge area, which had great ambiance. It used to be a hookah lounge,but isn't anymore I guess. The music was awesome(House and Pop). We ordered soups and starters-Both veg and Non-Veg(I feel food out here is a bit sweet). Then we ordered Murg Mussalam, Zaffrani Kofta, roomali rotis, butter nans for main course. We also ordered the much heard about Chicken Tikka Biryani.
The staff is cordial and all things are in place, except that sometimes the service becomes a bit slow.
Overall, I enjoyed the experience here. Would probably visit again soon.

The best butter-chicken in the world!

I loved this place. The best mughlai food I have eaten in ages, open upto the odd hours that you get hungry most (3am), and easy on the pocket. Must have dish here is the butter-chicken with the roomali roti. Hospitable staff and amazing food, what else can a hungry man ask for.

Will definitely be going back.

Savior post 12am...

If u get hungry post midnight... after parties.. this is the place to be...
The mughlai food is really rich n heavy. Do try the luckhnowi seek kabab n zaafrani murg.
In the main course, they prepare better mutton dishes than chicken... love the bhuna gosht. They also serve water mouthing raan biryani but its so big that a group of 5-6 people are needed to finish it off.. with full of succulent mutton...
For the desserts: their firni is not to be missed (any time better than the ones of suleiman busman n the likes). Cheena payesh is also good (small balls of rasmalai in rabri/basundi)

Per head it should cost around 600/- to 700/-

Hidden Treasure

Tucked away in a building near the crowded Crawford Market, Zaffran is quite the hidden jewel in a pile of rubbish. The interiors are cool and welcoming, and the food... wow! Famed for it's biryani, I fell in love with the place. These guys sure know what 'spicy' means. At a time where most places serve up a joke in the name of spicy food, Zaffran is a place where if you ask for spicy, you will get spicy. I totally heart this place and since I live close by, I can frequent it often. Looking forward to heading here once again soon!

Richness at its best!

Cramped up in a corner near Mahatma Phule market, Zaffran is a gem when it comes to rich Mughlai food. Although they now have Chinese and other options (which I haven't cared to try), I can bet that Mughlai takes the cake!

Zaffran is a major hangout for meat eaters but I did see plenty of pure vegetarian eaters around which is proof that vegetarians have enough to stuff themselves with as there are plenty of options to chose from.

This place serves one of the best Butter Chicken in Mumbai. Went there with a friend, she being a vegetarian ordered Tandoori Broccoli which sounded a bit off to me. To my surprise, it was really good. I ordered Butter Chicken and roti. It was sooo good that I managed to finish the whole thing myself.

Normally a word I reserve for dessert - but the am ount of red meat i consume when i go here, has to be a sin in someone's books!! A lot fo people go here in their drunken stupor at 3 a.m...... but i go there when i'm completely sober because i really enjoy the food there and want to experience it to the fullest! Also, people tend to come there after one drink too many and tend to throw up there at 2-3 a.m.... so i want to avoid that.

While I myself am not a big fan of the dish, my wife and friends LOVE the chelo kababs served here. Their Raan Biryani is outstanding. Its usually enough for 6-8 people, but i went once with 3 friends and the four of us polished it off... it was that good! Since the raan biryani isn't served by the plate, I have gone there many times with a friend, ordered the raan briyani, eaten a plate of it and then packed the rest and taken it home for a midnight snack & breakfast + lunch the next day. Other stuff I have eaten there and can vouch for are the Chicken kalimirch kabab and the Galouti Kabab (its not the best, but if you're not in Lucknow - this is a decent replacement.) Their yellow dal is awesome too. I for one will continue going back again and again to Zaffran for their food.

Zaffrani Booty Calls

Veg, Non Veg, Moghlai, Chinese, Seafood
Family Ambience
If you’re craving decadent butter chicken at 1 am and don’t mind paying a tidy sum for it, head to Zaffran. True to its name, this place does velvety decadent sinful gravies and paper-thin roomali wraps. A stone’s throw from cheaper bustling roadside vendors, hygiene and safe ambience for women and family makes you pick Zaffran. The menu’s bursting with good humoured passions in the very style of the Nawabi Moghuls, a fine selection of kebabs, biryanis, even sabzis and daals fight for your attention. If you’re non-vegetarian, I’d highly recommend the lamb ghosht and murg selections. Vegetarians aren’t ignored with a decent line-up of Paneer and sabzis aa well. However, I’m not a big fan of Chinese and seafood at this joint. It does a fair tribute to authentic zaffrani cuisine, but Zaffran should really just stop there and avoid biting into unknown turf when it’s easier for it be a Nawab at home.

Awesome food but rules go for a toss here!!!!

have been to zaffran a few times and love the food there. from the pizzas, pasta to the indian stuff everything is awesome and tasty. do try the mix chicken pasta and the veg magarita pizza along with the non.veg indian stuff. service is slow at times but cant help it as the place is open till 4-5am in the morning and i bet the staff must be exhausted.

zaffran is a perfect example of the laws of governance being flouted right under the nose of the police. zaffran is a stone's throw from the MUMBAI POLICE HQ but instead of closing down by 12.30-1pm which i believe is the rule of law for restaurants in Mumbai it is open till 4-5am. I bet the Mumbai police looks the other way as they get free food for sure along with the massive hafta that they collect from this place.

All in all i must say the place is definitively a must visit especially after late nite partying (like my friends and me do) and looking for a sumptuous meal.

We ordered for pan masala sheesha. It was terrific. This could be the best place in d town if u want to have some hukka.
The food was also good. Order for jalapeno poppers in the starters. V. delicious
The only negative is the slow service otherwise nice place!

This is my favourite post-binging hang-out spot. The food is great Almost everything I've ordered has been great! Can be an expensive affair after a party at times. But this self-acclaimed king of Butter Chicken is out to get your taste buds all night long. The Service is great and at post-midnight I dnt think anyone really bothers with a few slacks here and there. Me recommends this place for sure!!

' Haute Cuisine '

At first impression zaffran was just ok - I mean whn v reachd-thr was no one 2 guide us abt thr variety of cuisines offered & the mngr tht nit was not at all helpful. Not complaining-but rudeness is not alwayz welcomed by customers.

After 5 mintz i gt the details myself and understood tht Zaffran offers 3 different concepts--Howrah (bengali food), Zaffran (north Indian) and Bistro (continental). So v opted for North indian.

Whn u enter u vil c tht the place is vry small-congested with slow & borin music bn played. The seats are comfortable & the table has beautiful sketches done on it.

Menu consists of a good variety of both veg & non veg. V wr vry hungry & ordered everytg from drinks to starters -main course & desert- evrytg was mouth watering specially the roti with kesar & starter (cheese mushroom)- which was sauted to perfection. The only negatv pt was the quanity of the starter and zaffran shud imprv on desserts-a big no no.

The waiters wr vry nice and service was upto the mark-no complains in tht area. Overall i rate zaffran with 4 stars as they offer gud food @ reasonable rates-- dnt miss it.

Great Service: The attendants and waiters are always a pleasure be it 8 in the evening or 2 at night (early morning, basically)..they are always enterprising, friendly and courteous. Usually, whenever we've gone there, we've ordered lots of dishes (great food) and shared from all but one thing I remember is the papad which they garnish with tomatoes, onions, coriander (something of a salad-y sorts) which is very yummy!

The food is terribly unhygienic and oily and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone with half a brain.

oh man...the food is jus too good......i had a bit of apprehension coz the previous reviewer had written that its a hookah place.....but the crowd there is very "family sorts" so no probs on that count....the service is excellent.......food is amazing.....chicken soup was good (dont remember the name).....for starters we had chello kebab (buttered rice with chicken)...was a lil sweet but tasty...then lamb galouti kebab....very soft and yummy......then came murg patiyala...which was the killer....absolute heaven...and finally mutton biryani to round off an excellent meal........

the only downside being was that the place is a lil bit noisy when its full.......but that just shows how much the patrons are enjoying the food......had dessert at the nearby BADSHAH's to finish an enjoyable gastronomic evening....

Fantastic Food

It is ostentatious, if you actually GO to the restaurant, but i was luckier. i got to eat the food without the atmosphere.

Hookah places, i dont like, because pseudo hippies seem to always show up at them and they are a crowd that is not to my liking.

and since i am "physically challanged" i opted out of climbing the rather awkwardly steep ladder to the actual restaurant which is on the first floor. The Maitre d' was accomodating enough to allow us to sit at their sister concern, Howrah, which is on the ground floor, and let us order food from the main restaurant.

For starters, we had Malai Paneer Seekhs and Honey Chilly Chicken Dry
The Main Course was of American Chopsuey and Singapore Fried Rice with Manchurian Chicken Chilly

ok so you are saying what the f* he is going to a Moghlai restaurant to eat frikkin chinese!
well here the thing,
i hate moghlai food.
But having said that, this was the best damn Indian Chinese i have ever ever had
The American Chopsuey was just perfect. The Wings were delicious, although not really honey, but the Jaiphal Star Anise substitute that Indo-Chinese usually uses, but it was really well made. and very tasty
all in all, an excellent meal, my wife and i were highly impressed. and the damage was only Rs. 875 for the entire meal acompanied with four Cokes.

Best Mughlai in Mumbai

Name/Location: Zaffran, Crawford Market

Average Cost: 200-300 a dish

Food: Zaffran is apparently centred around the use of Zaffran or Saffron though Im not too sure how much of it they actually use in their food keeping in mind how expensive it is. I usually order their chicken butter chicken, Murgh Zaffrani Tikkas, and some garlic naan and have to say that its some of the best mughlai Iv had. Their butter chicken has a lot of flavour and taste and the chicken tastes good too. The Tikkas are made of large chunks of chicken with the pieces seasoned to perfection and like the butter chicken are full of flavour and taste making dinner here an amazing experience. Their naans are good too and are really nice and soft. I heard a lot about their Raan and decided to order it but was left disappointed with it. I guess next time Ill just stick to the usual. Their deserts too were highly recommended including something called Khubani ka Meetha though it really wasn’t upto the same standards as the chicken. Overall Id say Zaffran is my favourite Mughlai restaurant in Mumbai beating restaurants like Khyber and Delhi Darbar that are usually considered to be the best.

Service: The service here is acceptable and the staff isn’t rude or anything though things can sometimes take a little longer than expected and when it gets busy it might get a little difficult for you to get the waiter’s attention. Overall though Id say the service is satisfactory at this price point.

Ambience: Zaffran is located near Crawford market and its often difficult to get a nice open space here. Zaffran is located on 2 levels and the lower level is usually closed so you might just think its closed. The seating upstairs doesn’t have any windows and that could feel a little claustrophobic for some though it isn’t all that bad to be honest. Zaffran is open till late so that’s an added bonus though the surrounding area gets a little shady as it gets late so It would be best to be a little careful. The restaurant isn’t that bad inside and is pretty decent with clean walls and doesn’t let you have too much to complain about though you really have to be flexible to use their bathroom that’s located under an flight of steps.

Conclusion: Id defiantly recommend Zaffran to anyone who loves Mughlai food. Its good food that’s relatively cheap with comfortable ambience and decent service. The best thing though is that its open till 4 in the morning and so its always good for a nice meal before hitting the sack.

The best Moghlai & Punjabi food

I eat at this place at least twice every week. They have the best punjabi dishes for vegeterians and also for the meat lovers.

I would recommend the Paneer tikha masala (it's not there in the menu, ask the waiter), Veg Jalfrazi, Paneer Kadai etc. The paneer is tender and just melts in your mouth. Try Kaftan which is different type of roti made by mixing 4 to 5 different flours.

The service is a bit slow, but good things take time. The portions are huge and one dish could very well be enough for 3 people.

Go to this place for great food and value for money in a decent ambience.

Good Chicken Anarkali

One dishI can vouch for at this place is their "Chicken Anarkali". Just mildly spicy, the gravy is rich and makes you wanna eat till you've wiped the container clean of any food in it.
Honestly, thats the only dish I've ever ordered from the place. The delivery is quick. Just remember to not order any naans, coz they'll be rubber by the time they land in your plate. Go for the roomali's instead.
One half portion of chicken anarkali and 3 roomali's costs 114 and the food is just about enough for 2 people
