As a coordinator for one of the local football clubs I approached the Owner regarding conducting a fundraising function on premises. Sel(head chef/owner) created a stunning 5 course dining experience that was excellent. We had 32 attendees and each and everyone has continued to rave about the experience. With a limited design the team from Saffrron managed to create a... More

Always a treat to eat at Saffrron. Have been away from Darwin for a while. Glad to return and see they have maintained their usual high standards. High quality local food, wonderful fresh Barra and the best Pumpkin Kari Kari. Staff are very helpful and friendly. Will certainly be back.

I will definitely be going back. Lovely , pleasant staff and loved the fact that the seafood was local and they used... More

The seafood is locally caught, so plump prawns straight off the boats and fresh, firm barra and jewfish. The curries are really fragrant as spices are freshly ground and each dish tastes unique. We love the extensive vegetarian menu - rare and much appreciated up here - along with locally grown vegies and herbs. We will be visiting again.

Décor and atmosphere very nice. Attentive staff and delicious food with a good variety on the menu. Good wine list as well. In my opinion the best Indian Restaurant in Darwin.

This place really hasn't got anywhere to improve, in my opinion. The food is delicious, good sized portions, well presented. The service is friendly and efficient and their committment to the environment (using eco-plates and bowls, whilst still giving you real cutlery and glassware) is commendable. The wine list is actually really good for a suburban restaurant. You will want... More

Go in at lunch and ask for the specials. You get two curries and can have as many refills as you like with rice and papadams. The staff are very friendly and the service is swift. Not to mention the fact the food is superb. I went with my brother and he was so impressed he ordered two curries to... More
