Safa restaurant is a well-established, highly frequented Indian eatery in the Chelmsford suburb of Galleywood in Essex. Safa’s owners are passionate in their aim to bring the highest standard of Indian cuisine to Chelmsford, and succeed due to their unique and contemporary take on classics form the subcontinent.
Safa’s chef cooks up exquisite kormas, tikkas and biryanis, as well as tandoori meats fresh from the clay oven in their five star hygiene rated kitchen. Their Dhansak – a hot sweet and sour dish cooked with lentils which originates from Persia is not to be missed. All of the dishes are cooked fresh to order, meaning if you’d like a certain level of spice, or something added to your curry, the attentive staff can organise this for you.
What really makes Safa stand out from other Indian restaurants in Essex is the Chef’s Special menu. It includes sophisticated, modern-day takes on traditional Indian dishes, as well as regional rarities that you’d struggle to find anywhere else outside of their birthplace. Take for instance, the Shatkora Gosth: lamb and wild lemon cooked in the chef’s special sauce, only found in the Sylhet region of Bangaldesh. Or, their Lamb Sikandari, marinated for forty-eight hours in the chef’s ‘secret recipe’ sauce, and cooked with chickpeas. For a unique take on the usual Chicken Tikka, why not try Safa’s Chicken Tikka Olive Bhuna, with the addition of olives?
Open seven days a week and with a license to serve alcohol, Safa is a great choice for an intimate date or a celebration meal with friends, family or colleagues. You’ll definitely find a relaxed ambience within the classy surroundings that Safa offers.
