Of course, no Mandy dish would be complete without its spice-infused rice companion.

    Served in either plate (for a single person) or tray (for more than 3 people), you have a choice of Nasi Maqlubah or Nasi Mandy. The rice is moist and fluffy without being too dry. Both chicken and lamb are perfectly roasted till juicy tenderness and a side serving of cucumber salad makes the meal even more appetizing!

    Tips

    Go early, their rice sell out fast.

    Things to expect

    This Middle Eastern restaurant is known for its signature Nasi Mandy dishes cooked over traditional charcoal fire. Parsia also favours basmati rice for the dish, thanks to its light and fluffy texture that feels unique in your mouth. No doubt the rice makes a terrific pair with the moist and flavourful grilled chicken or lamb!

    halal

    If you are a newcomer to Zafran Restaurant, you gotta try their Lamb Mandy rice. The lamb is well-seasoned with spices and cooked until fork-tender without being overdone or too chewy. We think that the richness of the lamb chunk certainly goes well with the fluffy rice!

    Tips

    The restaurant provides ample parking spaces.

    Things to expect

    Generous portion.
