Zafran opens in Dubai Marina Mall

Stunning views paired with delectable Indian delights

Foodmark, a division of the Landmark Group, has opened Dubai’s second branch of their popular homegrown restaurant Zafran in the vibrant and cosmopolitan surroundings of Dubai Marina Mall.

Zafran prides itself with the winning formula that has quickly become favoured across the region delivering contemporary Indian cuisine by using international ingredients with traditional cooking techniques and a modern flair. The fresh and innovative dishes available on the menu offer bold yet simple flavours created from new twists on Indian classics.

The menu has been inspired by internationally acclaimed, Michelin-starred chef, Atul Kochhar, who is renowned for reinventing Indian cooking and the way people perceive Indian food, and will be crafted by Zafran’s own Brand Chef, Ankur Chakraborty. The menu offers distinctive dishes of high quality Indian cuisine artistically presented and truly mouthwatering.

Zafran offers traditional Indian favourites, including Tamalian Fish Curry (white fish with curry leaves, tomato and mustard), Malai Kofta (vegetables, cheese and raisin croquettes with ginger and cashew curry), and Lucknowi Gosht (curried lamb with yoghurt, ginger and caramelized onions). 

The Tandoor selection is great for sharing and offers light, healthy and flavourful options such as the Kebab Platter (Seekh kebab, chicken tikka, grilled hammour and king prawn), Machchi Ka Sula (mustard and dill marinated grilled hammour served with caramelized lemon and curd rice), and Changezi Champen (Lamb cutlets marinated with fennel, pepper and cream served with Taramind chutney). 

The Zafran Specials feature a tasty twist to each recipe, for example; the Zafran Fish and Chips incorporates mustard marinated breaded fish served with saffron and chilli mayonnaise, accompanied with curry leaf potatoes.

There is also an extensive beverage menu, including specially created mocktails such as the Zafran Delight Apple Cinnamon Twist and Shahi Falooda, aswell as  delicious smoothies including Banana & Honey, Dates and Cranberry and Beery Berry.

Located in the prime spot of Dubai Marina Mall on the ground floor, Zafran’s latest outlet fits in perfectly within the cool surroundings of the Dubai marina. The restaurant’s amiable and inviting ambience is created with the use of soft mood lighting and a calming colour palette including burnt orange tones against soft wood furnishings. 

The vast terrace, sure to be the most popular seating choice, boasts spectacular marina views adding to the charm of Zafran’s dining experience. With up to 72 seated outside, and up to 56 inside, the restaurant welcomes large parties of friends and families, as well as providing the ideal atmosphere for an intimate dinner for couples.

Speaking about the newly opened Zafran, Naveed Dowlatshahi, General Manager of Foodmark, said, “We are very proud of the critical acclaim that Zafran, our homegrown brand, has received since it first opened in Mirdif City Centre just last year.  After the restaurant’s success in both Dubai and Kuwait we believe this contemporary offering will work well in the metropolitan hub of Dubai Marina. Zafran is the only chef-driven restaurant to be offered in a mall environment and offers excellence in quality and service as well as exceptional value for money.”

Perfect for a light bite whilst shopping or a more relaxed affair over lunch or dinner, find Zafran on the ground floor of Dubai Marina Mall.  To make a reservation, please call + 971 4 3997357.
