Had the most fantastic dinner at Saffrron. So many delicious flavours and beautiful rich sauces. So many dishes to choose from. The butter chicken masala is outstanding.. Will eat there again before we leave Darwin.

The food to us didn't have a lot of flavour. The dishes tasted the same. The lamb was not tender and the sauce watery. There was not the slighted hint of the smell of the usual curries in the restaurant. Very disappointing as we had so looked forward to a good Indian meal whilst in Darwin.
