We have been to Saffron a number of times now and have never been disappointed - in fact, it appears to be our number 1 choice of place to go whenever we decide to head out for Indian. They have a kids menu which has a good selection - our son always gets the chicken & rice (a fried rice... More

From the moment we walked through the door we were welcomed like family. Best service in Darwin by far. Food was great as was the atmosphere. Cant wait to go back again. Will be a regular haunt when family and friends visit from down south!

Was looking forward to trying this restaurant because there were mixed reviews, and not many Indian restaurants in darwin. But unfortunately was very dissapointed.

Safrron charges similar prices to Hanuman but is far inferior. We have eaten from there twice now, wanting to give it a second chance to impress, and it failed.

If you visit Darwin, do not pass up the chance of dining at Saffron. I've eaten Indian food all over the world and this is some of the best ever! Keep up the good work Saffron!

We didnt like this restaurant three years ago when we went. But figured it was time to revisit and give them another go. Well I can say this wont be the last time we attend. The food was great and for 5 people with a bottle of wine and a few cokes. All up was $250 which is good value... More

A delightful Indian Restaurant making the most of local top-end produce and with eco credentials - think up market paper plates and recycled timber cutlery - all work fine with the type of food. We lunched on ample, tasty food in a cool ambience.

Had a few meals here - usually pretty good. Interesting concept with disposable plates etc.....bit busy on our last visit, got the impression they'd overbooked. Will definitely go back.
