Hugely Popular Indian Bistro – Zafran Reopens at Dubai Marina Mall

Promises Authentic Indian Cuisine in Stunning Contemporary Setting

Dubai, United Arab Emirates:Zafran, the hugely popular Indian Bistro, has reopened at Dubai Marina Mall. Located on the 1st floor, the restaurant comfortably seats 160 and offers indoor and al fresco dining on its vast terrace overlooking the stunning Dubai Marina as well as take-out and delivery services to neighborhoods in the vicinity.

Regulars and newcomers alike will appreciate the contemporary atmosphere, comfortable and relaxed seating and subtle lighting of the new space, not to mention the delectable new menu and the spectacular views.


The décor and ambiance of Zafran blends seamlessly with the highly rated chefs and the use of the finest natural ingredients personally sourced to create a perfect Indian dining experience, according to Rakshak Puri, General Manager, Asian Dining-Foodmark.

“We have conceptualized a menu and space that celebrates our founding principal of ‘Big heart-light touch’. Zafran Dubai Marina Mall is the perfect embodiment of this philosophy and we look forward to welcoming everyone back for a creative, charming and memorable dining experience,” he said.


The newly opened restaurant has one more distinctive feature—a stunning collage art installation depicting the art, culture and history of India created exclusively for the venue by renowned Arab artist, Jeffar Khaldi. Visible from the escalators inside the mall, this art wall is the visual focal point in the restaurant and is certain to intrigue and surprise shoppers.

Another signature element of the venue is the ‘wow’ kitchen, allowing guests to witness the Zafran chefs engaging in the preparation of their food. The fascia of the kitchen is made of carbonized wood with brass detailing which replicates the char-grilling of the traditional tandoor, creating a beautiful, Instagram-worthy shot.

“Happiness and heritage are the cornerstones of my cooking and this is evident in the new menu that was introduced earlier in the month at Zafran outlets across the region. Diners have appreciated the fact that whilst we keep reinventing ourselves we remain authentic and true to classic Indian cuisine,” said Chef Gaurav Singh.


“Here at Zafran Dubai Marina Mall it will be no different. We do not underplay spice and our flavors are bold and traditional, yet our style itself is younger and more casual, making it accessible to those who are nostalgic for Indian cuisine but also part of this millennial generation,” he added.



Zafran Indian Bistro is open to guests for lunch as well as dinner from 11 am – 11 pm on weekdays and 11am – 12 am on weekends. To make a reservation please call: 04 3997357
