Ecofriendly an tasty.

Ecofriendly with a range of Gluten Free, Hallal, and Organic fare. The service was excellent and our meals were served quickly. The wait staff recommended appropriate complementing sides of our dishes. Family friendly with outdoor seating if desired.

Our family loves Saffron. Great service and food is really tasty. My daughter loves the Murg Shai and has it every time. The service is very good and the food is consistently beautiful.

Only in Darwin for a quick visit and staying in Parap. Lovely restaurant and the food is very flavoursome. We came here for lunch and dinner twice and really enjoyed our meal. Would be one of the best Indian restaurants that I have ever been to. Nice selection of wines too.

Came here for dinner in this lovely furnished restaurant. The service was excellent and food drink choice spot on.

This place is special, it is one of the very few places in Darwin that offers food that is veg/vegan/gluten free, healthy and hearty. The owner is almost always there cooking which means the place has kept true to the intentions at the creation of this restaurant. They do takeaway as well and ordering online was great.

This is a family favourite; we love their dishes and the Eco-friendly ethic. I recently visited after travelling in India and the food didn't fail to impress. Dishes are a good size here, so order a variety of mains to share. The Barra dishes are amazing and good range of vegetarian options.
