    Great people and even better food! Loved the roti chanai and teh tarik most because of the authenticity. The prawn gulai we ordered, was too sour and had very few prawns but that was the only downside. Every other dish we ordered had blown our minds. I’ll surely visit again soon.

    Really flavourful classics cooked with an excellent level of refinement. Portion sizes are good, but it would obviously be good to come with a larger group so you can try more items.

    Zafeera’s is the best value for money in the inner north. The family are delightful people who are adaptable to our wishes. This visit we ordered one of each of all the starters to share and then three mains between the five of us. The food came at perfect intervals that allowed to appreciate the tastes and talk among ourselves in a relaxed atmosphere. Oh, don’t forget to order the Roti bread. It is sensational.

    Delicious food, friendly service, pleasant environment. All the dishes we tried were interesting, particularly the curries with beautiful, individual sauces. The prawn gulai was a standout. The murtabak with lamb was terrific.. Highly recommend.

    Family runs business. Serving portions are quite small...satays & lambs culai are above average but the vegetable curry & beef rendang are average. Services are awesome but is little slow to wait for foods to come.

    I love this place. The Mee Goreng mamak is absolutely amazing. The roti Canai is delicious and fluffy with an amazing curry sauce. I also love the fennel chicken.

    Zafeera’s is a lovely little restaurant serving delicious food in a very pleasant environment. Three of us lunched there on The Fork 50% off deal. We would have been happy to pay full price.. We had a selection of dishes, some known to us, some new, and enjoyed all of them. All were presented well and full of interesting flavours. The spicy sambal prawns were enjoyable and we particularly liked the Zubee chicken curry and the sate which came with a lovely sauce. The roti was great - right up there with the best. The service was warm, friendly and efficient and we look forward to a return visit. This is a family run restaurant and they deserve every success. They only need to keep doing what they’re doing.

    We were in love with the flavours at the first bite! Like a breath of fresh air - so happy we discovered this place. Small but Great place to eat with family or friends or just grab a quick bite alone.

    The food here is excellent! It's a new, family run restaurant which I'm sure will become more popular as the months go on. It is quite a cheap eat so you are able to order plenty of variety. The highlights were the chicken Satay, Banana Roti, fried ice cream and the Lamb curries. We will definitely be back!
