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 all spice mixes made fresh inhouse as tasted in entrees such as ocean fresh garlic and chilli fish; or marinated chicken pieces in raslia sauce with lemon and lime chickpea crust. Delve into chicken Madras, cooked with mustard seeds and curry leaves in South Indian-style with a touch of coconut; while vegetarian offerings include cauliflower with potatoes, a touch of spice and herbs. Cool things down with housemade saffron and pistachio kulfi.
