Yes only good part of this restaurant is location. I understand that during vivid Sydney view was important they ask cover charges but table given to us was not in view. That would have been ok if food was average. Chicken was red meat made in full cream and tandoori dishes were warmed . Probably they do all grilling early... More

If you are looking for classy dining experience, Zaaffran is the place to go. The location overlooking darling harbour is wonderful. They have seating indoors and outdoors. The authentic Indian food served here is of top quality and taste. The staff is really friendly and courteous. It is a bit on the expensive side, but then, seeing the location and... More

Dined here on Saturday, got a table on their balcony. It was a good experience. The service was a swift and attentive. The menu was extensive, took us quite a while to choose what to eat. We ordered the Salmon for starters which tasted great. The Biryani for the main with Murgh Makhani was quite tasty as well. This has... More

Well, if you are a vegetarian and looking for varity.. This is good place ( for non-veg this is delight to taste some Indian kebabs outside India). The only drawback is the portion size... The quality is very less.

Authentic Indian food, at the Darling harbour. Wao. Makes you feel like home away from home. The food was very good. They have a wide variety of dishes to choose from. If you like Indian Food, this is the right place for you. Do visit and enjoy the taste of India.

Booked the Living Social Deal once again and proved to be money well spent. The meals you get are all delicious and flavourful. The many appetizers are absolutely mouth watering and the curries are full of flavour. The service was outstanding with all wait staff making us feel welcome. Upon receiving dessert, we commented to a waiter that our favourite... More
