Description: Contemporary Indian cuisine, located on bank street in the heart of Belfast City centre. At Safa we offer authentic Indian recipes and traditional style of cooking. Ali takes great pride in cooking to order and grinding all his own spices so it really is the closest to Indian home cooking you can get. We also have a full bar and incredible wine list.

This was an amazing find in Belfast. We really enjoyed it. The chicken tikka masala and the veggie rogin josh were really tasty. Great locale and very nice service. I recommend highly .

Service polite and attentive. Bland seekh kebab. Chicken jalfrezi better. Worth a go. Nothing exceptional. No draught indian beer!

“Disgusting and miserable.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2014 via mobile

Visited for lunch and will never again. paid £7.50 for two courses. One tiny veg pakora served on a plate followed by what looked like baby puke for main. 4 measlesy pieces of tough chicken in a tasteless sauce with about 4 spoonfuls of rice, not a fresh vegetable in sight. Thoroughly disappointed. Dont expect this business to stay open much longer if this is the rubbish they serve.
