Good food, but a potentially long trek to Mirdif 24 Reviews

From Time Out Dubai Eating Out 2011
Don’t be pertrubed by Zafran’s rather unappealing mall location – this Indian restaurant in Mirdif serves a ‘contemporary Indian with a twist’, and while such descriptions are often intended to confound diners, Zafran at least delivers on its promise. Starters include shami (lentil and mutton mince patties), murgh gelawati (chicken kebab patties), and karara kekda (oil-fried soft-shell crab). Mains consist of more conventional fare served, dare we say it, with a twist. The mutton rogan josh comes in the form of a hearty lamb shank, and it won't take you long to strip the soft, curried meat from the bone before moving onto the ajwaini jhingae – glistening, juicy prawns, flavoured with carom seeds. Top marks for food – if only Zafran wasn’t slap-bang in the middle of a half-empty mall.
