We ordered a number of dishes to share, chicken masala, dal, garbonzos, shrimp, etc. It was all really good and both the waiter and the owner was very helpful. Not an expert on Indian food but in book this holds up really well and then some against Indian restaurants in US. Highly recommended.

A very excellent Indian meal in Lisbon. We've had many in other parts of Portugal as well as the U.S. and this is one of the best. It has subtle and sophisticated flavors and spices.

We arrived without a reservation and were lucky to be seated for the Thursday night special; a delicious sampler dish with dessert and a very talented belly dancer for entertainment. We love Indian food, but this was especially good, with lots of variety and quantity.... More

Myself and my husband went to Zaafrans after reading the reviews. It was easy to locate and the service was good. The food was good but not great . However we live in Birmingham (uk) and therefore very spoilt for choice when it comes to Indian food. Therefore in comparison this was okay. We both had the chicken Biriyani. It... More

During our 1 week stay we had diner at Zaafran 2x. The chef recommended a suprise diner and we loved it! Great food & service. Better to make a reservation before you go there.
