I popped into to grab a quick meal and was very impressed with the service, the venue and the selection of food. What I ordered was delicious. I will be back again and recommend to friends.

It has been a while since I have eaten here, but always enjoyed it in the past. Popped in for some take away of butter chicken and a lamb and spinach dish with rice and naan. Lacklustre to say the least. The lamb dish contained very little spinach which was why I ordered it in the first place. Butter chicken... More

Was invited for dinner by friends and first restaurant after i reached darwin, expectation was quite high as it served Indian cuisines, but as the chef was south Indian you could get all the similar aromas, the masala was the same in each platter we ordered. Would have been better if authentic Indian food was served mentioning the state or... More

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. We ordered the butter chicken and it didnt taste like butter chicken, it wasn't creamy and the balance of flavours was just not there. The prawn curry was a let down too the flavours was too...

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. The sauces of our butter chicken and lamb korma were watery and poorly flavoured. My dessert was also very disappointing. The naan bread and roti were the only nice part of... More

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!
