Thoughtful menu suggestions

I approach eating in a restaurant which specialises in Indian cuisine with some caution since my digestive system does not appreciate very hot and/or spicy food. Sometimes the options are therefore limited. I was delighted with the recommendations from the waiter in this restaurant. I enjoyed... read more

They had a choice if organic wines on the list, which was perfect for me! The family ordered butter chicken Marsala, lamb korma, my husband ordered Spanish mackerel Marsala and I had baingan and chickpea Marsala, along with rice and... More

My husband and I tried Saffrron for the first time, and it certainly won't be our last! We had the taste menu, which I recommend. Many different flavours - seriously delish! And they do not stint on the amount either. Fantastic atmosphere, great staff, totally lives up to its excellent reputation!

We enjoyed a delicious meal here on a busy night. We hadn't booked but the friendly staff soon conjured up a table for us. The crispy skin fish was a real hit and we all enjoyed the other dishes on offer. The wine list is good too.

Had dinner with some friends last week. It was a lovely evening. The service is very good and the food was really tasty. Lots of flavours. Very good wine list and choice of beers. We decide to choose a bottle of an organic white wine and it was very nice.

Incredible food, went for a seafood set menu with friends but I only eat fish. The staff bent over backwards to ensure alternatives. You know when flavours take your breath away...? Well that was the case at Saffron! Dessert was so special - starfruit, dragonfruit and homemade vanilla bean icecream drizzled in honey & dates. Who thought it could have... More

We joined my colleagues for a business dinner, and I was pleasantly surprised! Good authentic Indian food is not easy to find - there are too many bad places out there! We will go back!

Last night with five others we celebrated life! The service, choice of wine and oh the food - yummy! Seafood Month in Darwin was embraced by Saffron Restaurant. Within our group we had those with food allergies and life choices & absolutely nothing was too much trouble. For those with food allergies alternate dishes were provided and for others vegetation...
