About Zaffran Indian

A slice of India awaits Newcastle foodies at Zaffran Indian restaurant on King Street. An exposed brick feature wall, adorned with a mosaic tile-styled mural of an elephant sets the scene for authentic flavours, while overhead statement pendent globes cast a warm glow over intimate table settings. This is Indian like you've never tasted before, with allspice mixes made fresh inhouse as tasted in entrees of garlic and chilli prawns with special spices; or boneless tandoori chicken pieces with a side salad. Delve into Baraat lamb, also known as wedding lamb, slow-cooked in a blend of Indian spices, with sides of basmati rice, papadums and cucumber raita; while vegetarian offerings include seasonal vegetables, cooked with cashews and pineapple, before cooling things down with pistachio kulfi.
