Personallized attention and Good Service

Today I went with my family to celebrate Indian festival "Rakhi Day" at ZaffroN Kitchen, Westgate. This is my second visit at this outlet although there is one near my home in East. Vincent who is heading the outlet was very attentive and took care of us while we there from 1.30pm to 3.30pm. He was assisted by Jay, who served us cheerfuly . My uncle asked him why he looks happy and his answer was that "it makes him happy to see restaurant full of customers" . It is hard to find this kind of service in Singapore these days. The food was delicious. We tried several things including Mix Grill Platter, Tandoori Mushroom, Palak Paneer  and Goan Fish Curry. As for drink, we had chilled draft beer and Lassi. I think it is a great place to entertain family and friends. Strongly recommended. By the way this is a genuine review and not a paid one, in case you are wondering

good food but bad service

I visit this outlet often and so is in a good position to see its transformation. Firstly food quality has maintain over time. But service is getting worst. Today I made a reservation but they did not have record of it. Then the waiter reluctantly led us to our table shaking his head. We asked for warm water and he delivered ice water instead. I did not feel welcome. Fortunately, not all staff are behaving badly. Will still visit but probably not as often anymore.

Waited too long, food too rich.

Waited 40 minutes for food, and 15 mins for the bill. After 20 mins, I even had to ask for some water, and for the Teh Tarik I ordered.

The food itself was okay. I ordered the broccoli curry (rich and creamy), the lady's fingers (good), the fish curry (only ok) and the prata chicken curry set (alright). Too rich too fillin. Just as well they forgot the Fish Massala.

Indian Cuisine for Lunch

My sister and I will go Jurong area at least once a month. This time round, we decided to settle our lunch at Westgate mall. As we were walking around the mall deciding what’s for lunch, we chanced upon this classic modern style serving Indian cuisine. We decided to give it a try.
Zaffron Restaurant serves north, south Indian cuisine and as well local Indian foods. The interior design of the restaurant is classy with wall glasses at the entrance of the restaurant and westernize bar when you step in. We were introduced to their online ordering system instead of having the traditional ordering. Thus, this explains why they only have 2 service staffs for the whole restaurant.

The mini Ipad ordering was easy and user-friendly. We took our time browsing through the online menu and placed our order. The whole process took us less than 10 minutes and waited patiently for our orders to process. Drinks that we ordered were Ice Kopi S$4.50 and Teh Tarik S$3.50.
Sisters ordered Chat Masala Fries @S$5.00 as the starter for the main course. The fries are crispy with light masala taste.
Dum Chicken Bryani S$13.50 serving was generous. The dish was served sealed with a thin layer of dough with hidden briyani, chicken thigh and egg. Something different in terms of presentation and at the same time retains the flavors and taste of the dish.
I ordered Garlic Naan S$4.50 and their signature Butter Chicken S$16.00 to complete the meal.Chicken Tikka marinated in a delightful yogurt and spice mixture with butter flavored gravy perfect for the naan.
The ambiance of the restaurant was perfect for dinning as a couple or in small group. Pleasant and peaceful moments with cosy chatting session over the lunch as the restaurant is quite empty. Service staffs were quite friendly and provide suggestion on foods recommendation.
