We say…

Situated on Kirkgate, close to the River Aire, the Safran Restaurant is close to many bars if you choose to start your evening here. This restaurant is less than half a mile from Trinity Leeds. 

From outside, Safran is visible from its large red sign. Inside the restaurant, intricate paintings line the walls featuring Persian landscapes that create a relaxed atmosphere.

The interior is bright and traditional, with long tables that are great for groups. The restaurant features large windows facing the street outside to allow plenty of light. The friendly owners are happy to accommodate any group, from couples to families.

The menu offers traditional Persian cuisine, featuring well-known dishes such as the Falafel Plate, to Kashke Bademjan, an aubergine dish cooked in garlic and herbs.

A wide selection of classic kebabs are also on offer, as well as the Shish Tawouq Wrap, chicken cubes marinated in yoghurt and spices, grilled over charcoal with salad and pickles, and wrapped in freshly baked bread.

If you’re looking for something to share, a Persian Mix gives you the opportunity to sample a range of skewers, perfect for those who haven’t tried Persian food before.

A range of warming stews are also available to comfort you in the colder months. If you’re a fan of lamb, sample the Gheymeh, or if you prefer chicken then the Fesenjaan is a perfect choice for you.  

If you’re looking for a restaurant that serves halal meat and offers a fantastic variety of unique flavours, Safran Restaurant in Leeds is an excellent choice. Bring along your family and enjoy some Persian delights.
