Fantastic Persian food and an ample drink menu to accompany a superb hummus appetizer, baby kale salad and filet kabob. Clean and inviting it was excellent. Cannot wait to revisit and order more ethnic cuisine.

Zafron is a steady, delicious restaurant and the owner/chef is devoted to creating quality presentations, delicious desserts that are out of this world and fine Persian food. Great salads and a super lunch and dinner resource that is always a favorite.

Pleasant atmosphere, very nice food - the hummus and eggplant are delicious. Also tried the cabbage with minced beef - a little too much "tomatoey" . Staff is super-courteous, food is well presented and delivered promptly.

Each one of us enjoyed our meal, chicken barg, lamb and tenderloin kabob. The service was a little slow, but a minor inconvenience considering the overall evening.
