“Tasty Indian food and a great service”
Reviewed 12 February 2014

Very cosy restaurant in the middle of Tripoli, close to the Martyr's Square, just opposite Grand Hotel (funduq Kabir). the owner is an Indian man married to the Libyan lady.
Very good food, I always eat chicken tika masala, palak panir and jeera rice with garlic nan, highly recomendable. Gulab jamun as a sweet and masala tea to end your meal.

“The best kept secret in Tripoli”
Reviewed 2 May 2013 via mobile

I have been in Libya a regular visitor for the past 8 years. This restaurant opened in 2010 and I only found out about it last Febraury 2013.
I was TOTALLY surprised of the food quality. It is HEAVENLY...and u am not an Indian Food eater...
The spices are re most authentic I have ever tasted. I will not get into the names of dishes because I could not memorise them but the best I can recommend is the Prawn Biryani...the portion in more than enough...the taste is incredible...the prices are extremely reasonable...
I ate in so many places in Tripoli and Benghazi but food like this is a delicacy...
Now I only eat at Safir....and nothing else but Safir...
