Food was pretty average, price way more than you should pay for the quality and service. Only suits unsophisticated palates. The manager was extremely rude. Staff looked like they were overworked and under paid and being yelled at. Did not want to cater for special requests from our group, only just wanted to serve a stock standard banquet and for...

loved the different twist and lighter feel to all their dishes. Definitely more expensive than your average indian restaurant but i think its well worth it. Do check kitchen opening hours.

Both were exceptionally good. We sat on the balcony area overlooking the harbour where the atmosphere was fantastic. They also had a good range of beverages which... More

Who will make a vegetable biryani with winter vegetables? We are surprised to see broccoli, baby corn, zucchini etc in our veggie biryani. The biryani rice was made to the point but it lacks authentic flavours to be honest. Entrees were fine, the paneer was hard that we are convinced the chef didn't get enough time to defrost the frozen... More

My wife and I have dined here dozens of times since Zaaffran opened over 15 years ago. In all that time, we could not recall at our lunch there again today, even one bad experience. In fact most of the time, the experience has been excellent and today's lunch was no exception. Unlike most Sydney Indian cafes, Zaaffran use first... More
