Nice Indian Food

A different CNY. Decided to go Indian tonight for dinner on CNY day 2. I've been to Zaffron at Amoy one and liked it. Luckily their east coast outlet didn't disappoint too. Must orders are the butter chicken, fish masala and Tandoori malai chicken tikka. Garlic naan and basmati rice are good. You can choose your spice level and we went with extra spicy for my fav dal makhani. One of the very few Indian restaurant which Mum went yum. Guess won't be too hard to convince the family to dine here again. Only boo was the kids area that got too rowdy when a bunch of kids were playing. Not a sound proof place, the noise was more than my ear drums could bear with the kids' shrill screaming. Not sure that can be fixed so be sure to chop chop chomp chomp your din din and go go.

What an honest and surprising experience

I went over to this restaurant with my girlfriend for dinner and wanted to show her one of my fav place to eat. Normally its packed but we chose to come in on a Monday evening. Met by a very nice waiter that was surprisingly very chatty and not very robotic and laughed with us as we sat.

Instantly told him that we didnt like Ipads and wanted to ask for recommendations and thought the night would end with a frumpy waiter but that did not happen. After asking us some simple questions about what we like, he helped us insert our orders and even helped answer some of the questions about the food. We ended up getting Garlic naan, Briyani Rice, a Palak Paneer and a Chicken Tika. 

We thought it was not enough but waiter said it was enough. Nice to know someone doesnt want to empty our wallets

The meal came in time and as delicious as always and was worried about my girlfriend (first time and all) she loved it. The naan was fresh, rice was unbelievable, paneer was nicely cooked and the chicken yummy as always.

Spent a bit more time in the restaurant as usual as it had a nice ambiance without the mad crowd. The waiter came back to checked on us and was greatly served.

Read the comments and been here a couple of times and sometimes I have to see that these guys are trying their best to make people visits more enjoyable. Long day and all.  And yeah, seen a few unreasonable people dining in the restaurant in the past. but thats their problem. The staff are humans too

Will go back for the familairity, food and service.

They have earned my patronage and will continue to do so. the whole place screams warmth. I'll go back

Food good service can be better

Food was good but service could be better. The family that came after me was served before me. I overheard them telling the waiter one platter dish was not what they ordered. Turned out it was for my table. Then they complained (after they had started eating) that another dish was not what they ordered. Yet another dish was meant for my table. The waiter took it back to the kitchen. Food was good but left me wondering whether I was served something returned by another table.

Good Food, but service could be better

Awesome food, absolutely loved it. The chicken was tad over spiced, but what what really let the place down, was the Medicore service.. busy or not, i did not need one of your wait staff - Alvin, rolling his eyes at me when I made a request for service. Do with a smile, not with attitude.
