“The Persian restaurant, or mocking it”
Review of Zaffran Restaurant

Zaffran Restaurant
Ranked #1,068 of 1,569 Restaurants in Oslo
Cuisines: Persian
Restaurant details
Reviewed 26 June 2017

The good thing about Zaffran is that it is a Persian restaurant. There are thousands of better Persian restaurants all over the World. But Zaffra is one and the only Persian restaurant in Oslo. It makes Zaffran, whith its cookery way far from real persian food unbearable but yet the only option, alas.

We went there with a group of friends. We ordered well known items in the menu to share (Koobideh, Ghormeh sabzi, Gheimeh, Khoresh Bademjan, Kask Bademjan) but none of them tasted even close to a real Persian food. It seems they have their own recipe which is far from the original one.

We have just returned from holiday including 6 nights in Oslo and found this restaurant quite by accident. The ambience is excellent. The service was leisurely at the pace we wanted for a relaxing evening meal. The choice for my wife was very limited as she is a vegetarian but it was the best meal we had during our stay in Oslo. The waiter was excellent: he translated and explained the menu and made us feel very comfortable and that our satisfaction was important. Considering the prices in other restaurants in Oslo the cost of a meal here was very reasonable. We would definitely come here again when in Oslo. I am not an expert on Persian food but i was a very satisfied Welshman
