Zaffron Kitchen serves an excellent mix of North, South and local Indian favourites. The restaurant displays pictures of Indian lifestyle. It is a modern restaurant does not give the impression of dining at Little Indian or Race course type restaurant. The restaurant is very IT savy as menu is presented in iPad.
I was at Westgate and wanted to try Indian Cuisine and ordered the followings :
a) Naan : It is plain Nann. It is just as good as Roti Prata except that it is not oily. The Naan is very crispy.
b) Basmati Biryani Rice : The rice has not have fragrance.
c) Plain rice : The rice is soft.
Tandoori Mixed Grill (Vegetarian) ($29) comprises Panner Tikka, Tandoori Gobi and Tandoori Mushroom. Most of the dishes are very done. The dish is spicy for Chinese diner.
Okra Masala ($10.50) is a delicious lady finger dish flavoured with an array of spices like coriander, turmeric, cumin seeds, cayenne. The lady fingers is not the ordinary long and 10 cents width lady finger. The finger is very thin and short. I did not taste of the gel of the lady finger.
Palak Pareer ($13) is a vegetarian dish with Indian Cottage Cheese served in rich spinach gravy. This dish is good to dip with Naan as the gravy is thick.
Mutton Rogan Josh ($15.50) is a low fat and mildy spiced lamb curry. Usually, there is a smell for mutton but this dish does not evolve any smell. I believe the works of spices do a great job. Its meat is tender and really no fat. As for the gravy, it looks oily but forget about it. Taste it to believe that it is really good.
Butter chicken is the signature dish. Chicken Tikka marinated in a delightful yogurt and spice mixture and simmered in a rich tomato, cashew nuts, butter flavoured gravy accented with dry fenugreek. This dish tastes better with served with rich or Naan. The chicken is well marinated. The bite of chicken was tasty. The gravy is thick and buttery and yet not strong in spices aroma.
All the dishes were prefect.
The waitress was fast in serving and also display its art of making Teh Tari.
