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.

This was a friendly restaurant that served very tasty and good sized portions of Indian cuisine. It was kid friendly with a kids menu with Indian treats. We were looking for a nice, sit down dinner and went for the tasting menu. It was a little pricey at $50/head but they kindly let our 5 yo eat from our meal... More

We 8 friends comprised of different origins went to this restaurant and thoroughly enjoyed the authentic South and North Indian curries. Their 'Chicken 65' entree is sensational. I would recommend those curry lovers who are visiting Darwin to have a meal in this Indian restaurant. Dr. Anna. M.

Staff were charming and attentive, food was excellent and the overall ambience of the place was beguiling. Darwin is a friendly city anyway and Saffrron reflects that great feeling. No more needs to be said.

We decided to eat at Saffrron based in part on the reviews we read here. We made our reservation on line using the Restaurant web site which was very user friendly. We had a shellfish allergy in our party and the web site even allowed us to identify this which was awesome. When we arrived the restaurant was absolutely packed,... More

Went here for dinner mid week and the place was packed (worth booking). The food was fantastic with a good variety of heats. One naan bread was over cooked but when bought to the attention of staff it was very quickly replaced with one of the best naans I've had. The service was very attentive without being overbearing. They use... More

My husband and I both enjoyed an evening meal here. It's been a while since I've had Indian food this good. Vegetarian samosas were gloriously fresh and tasty and beautifully presented with 3 sauces. It was a difficult choice, but for mains we opted for Madra Jew fish curry and Baingan and Chickpea Masala ...... Both tasty. Service was friendly... More

We had a wonderful meal at Saffrron - some unusual curries and meals were on offer. The Barra was wonderful, as was the pepper chicken curry. Service was quick and efficient. So sad that we were only in Darwin for a couple of nights, and will definitely put Saffrron on the list for a re-visit when next in the area.

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.
