Most of the personnel seem aloof/indifferent to our presence. I don't think I saw a smile all evening. My husband had the "rhubarb" lamb shank which was OK - but had NO signs of rhubarb and more fat than expected and it came in a metal bowl which was difficult to maneuver. I had the lamb kabob and asked for it to be pink in the middle and moist. Two of the pieces were pink - the others were dry and over tenderized. My kabob was served on a metal [or plastic] tray rather than a china plate [and it felt strange for me to eat off of it.] They do have a nice wine list with reasonable prices and we enjoyed our bottle of wine!

The food was enjoyable and the presentation interesting. The service was a little slow, and the wait for the bathroom a little odd, and although there were not many people it became loud quickly. I did not include in my assessment but I was surprised at the limited adult drink menu (not a stocked bar), considering the price point. I saw the sodas and beers go from consumer packaging into the glasses from the kitchen.

What a wonderful experience. The restaurant had a lovely Ambience. Our server Iman was very helpful and a friendly. He provided excellent service. We certainly enjoyed all of our meals which included the shrimp, zaffron chicken, and the roasted salmon. The rice and vegetable kabobs were excellent as well. Also the hummus was nice and fresh. We will be back!

Our service was great. Unfortunately, guests only return for good food.
Went for lunch on Saturday. 3 other tables were already seated. Our server Lia was friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. Even though there were only a few other tables our food took over 20 minutes. Two of my friends ordered ka-bobs. When their food arrived there was just meat and rice on their plates. My understanding of a ka-bob is it’s meat, onions and peppers on a skewer. Definitely not ka-bobs. Upon further inspection there were holes through the meat as if it were on a skewer and then the skewer removed. At this point the restaurant was very busy. Our server was absolutely swamped. No fault of her own. We decided to eat our lunch and not wait for the problem to be corrected. That being said, the food was okay but not memorable.

First time dining at this restaurant. The service was a little "off". I think our waiter changed 3 times because no one knew who was handling our table. Not sure I could eat Persian food that often (quite "seasoned"), but it was very good and generous portions!

A neighborhood favorite. Zafron is the kind of place you like to have in a neighborhood- good food, reasonable prices, friendly staff, casual , upbeat feel. We're usually there about once a month or so and it's almost unusual not to run into someone you know. The Persian food is always good- we love the salmon!- and prices are significantly cheaper than the bigger, more well-known, and MUCH noisier Persian restaurant a few blocks away. Zafron also has the good fortune to be located directly across the street from the beautiful brand new Sandy Springs Performing Arts Center that opened in fall, 2018, and is a great new venue for plays and concerts.
