Easy to miss- although we had checked on the map where it was ( close to side entrance to castlecourt). Very friendly staff, best indian restaurant I have ever been in, great authentic dishes (kulfi made from cashew, almond caramelised milk and mango worth trying)

Description
Contemporary Indian cuisine, located on bank street in the heart of Belfast City centre. At Safa we offer authentic Indian recipes and traditional style of cooking. Ali takes great pride in cooking to order and grinding all his own spices so it really is the closest to Indian home cooking you can get. We also have a full bar and incredible wine list.
