My wife and I wanted a good tandoori and we got it. This place is casual and offers good service and the food is excellent. There are two menus, one vegetarian and the other non veg, and the fare is plentiful without being too extensive....We ate the tandoori chicken and the biryani and were left replete and satisfied. Conveniently located on Connaught Place this restaurant is well worth a visit.More

My boyfriend and I stood at Hotel Palace Heights and had breakfast at Zaffran Restaurant. The staff was so welcoming and kind that we immediately felt at home. Ajay-Charak and Chaman were very lovely with us, having patience with my total impossibility to stand to...spice food and also suggesting and encouraging us to try the delicious Indian food they served there at the breakfast buffet. They also have great masala chai! One of the best I tried during the whole trip. Over dinner, we've been there twice, with different staff. In one of the opportunities the kitchen was able to prepare food without spice, and it was great because I could eat properly. The second time, it was not that easy and one of the waiters was a little bit inpatient with that, what made me give up on trying to eat. But that isolated bad experience was not enough to eclipse the good ones I had at the restaurant. So I still recommend it strongly.More

Worth to try... I ordered veg biryani and dal makhani. Both are taste good, but veg dom biryani was superior to other. It is little over priced compared to its quality.

A very nice restaurant with good food, great service and a pleasant atmosphere. We had a lovely dinner there and especially enjoyed the cauliflower dish, which is not always one of my favorites. They really know how to prepare it! I liked this restaurant and...it was not expensive.More

If you’re visiting New Delhi and are anywhere near Connaught Place (you’re really likely to be!) then seek out this small hotel restaurant for lunch or dinner. It’s not terribly smart (either the building, the hotel or, for that matter, the restaurant) but the food...is truly excellent. It’s located in the Hotel Palace Heights (Radial Road No 6) on one of the many identical turnings off the central circle of Connaught Place. The hotel is two floors up (there’s a doorman to show you into the lift. They do vegetarian and meat dishes. If you do make it be sure to order their “gobi dum dar” (cauliflower cooked in a clay pot). It’s truly delicious. If I’d had more time I would have asked the chef to show me how to make it. I suspect a tandoori oven is required! But lots of the other dishes were excellent too. And the head waiter will give you suggestions. I’ll be back whenever I get to Delhi! Be sure to do the same.More

I visited Zaffran first time in 2008 and continued to be a patron on every visit of mine to Delhi. In fact, I started staying in the hotel (palace heights) due to this restaurant! The hotel is also good. Breakfast, lunch or dinner - food...here has always been amazing. Service always prompt and polite. If one wants great North Indian food in CP area, there is no need to look beyond Zaffran.More

Let’s get it straight.....expensive but good food, it’s fine dining guys. Good service. Polished staff. The Plain Naan was the best I had in recent times, thin and crispy. Even the Paneer Kundan dish was awesome. Good ambience. Would definitely recommend.

The food was very classic and tasty, staff very helpful and friendly and great atmosphere. We ordered a mixture of vegetarian and meat dishes - 3 starters and a main plus naan all to be served together. The fish tikka was lovely the best. The...lamb ribs, although tasty, were a little chewy and quite cold. Overall our main complaint was that some dishes were cold.More
