Fabulously tasty, owner came and chatted to us n got my daughter some plain chicken and cheesy naan when she told him she didn't like the sauce on her dinner. Attentive friendly staff. All in all a great visit. Would recommend if you want to splash out on a treat

Living in Sydney we usually avoid Darling Harbour when dining out. However we had heard some good things about Zaaffran, particularly not to expect traditional Indian food so we thought we would give it a try. What a mistake, the ambiance was like walking into a high school canteen, loud, untidy, little by the way of decor, and a general... More

I like this place. It's about my fourth visit in 3 years and I've never been disappointed. It's a little pricey, but I'm used to Canadian prices so need to take this into consideration. The food is very well prepared and presented. Ask for an outside table if the weather is co-operating as the views are wonderful and the breeze... More

Been to this restaurant three times and the banquets is good and filling, always busy - but in a real tourist spot. Good quality food and variety. Tasty and plenty .Service is good provided the restaurant is not full otherwise it can be patchy. All in all a nice dinner to celebrate on a birthday

We went there on 22 Feb for our last night in Australia. The restaurant has memories for us as we spent the night of my husbands 40th birthday there on our last visit to Australia 10 years earlier. The food was as good as remembered we both had the vegetarian banquet that worked out to approx £25 each. Only the... More
