Had dinner there last night, staff were great and attentive and the food was very good, especially the Pumpkin dish, very different and can recommend it highly.

My wife and I decided on Saffrron's as the dinning venue of choice for our monthly date night outing. We don't always get out on a date night when we'd like, but when we do we look for somewhere special. We were both blown away with Saffrron's Parap, NT; the quality of food, service and general presentation of the establishment... More

It is a must, the smells, the food, the staff all wonderful. I have travelled the world and love spicy foods, this has authentic flavours, and not westernised. Again it is a must, a little expensive compared to most Indian restaurants, but well worth it.

The paper plates are just a gimmick (why not paper cups for the wine?) and the experience would've been much nicer with proper crockery. Having said that, the food was delicious. Our entrees were the baby squid and the prawns. Both had a very subtle spicy flavour. Our mains were my favourite, beef vindaloo, and the barramundi curry. The wine... More

Went for dinner with the family. Simply delighted with the array of choice. The vegetarian menu was satisfying. I recommend the pumpkin. Loved the fact the food was local- seafood and vegetable were grown/ caught locally. We were really happy with the choice of wine & beer - organic and bio dynamic were available.
