Fabulous authentic Indian

I have been eating at Saffron for years. Love the food the chilli chicken is my favourite. I was shocked at the poor reviews I've never had a terrible meal. The friendly personal service always makes you feel special when you walk in

This is an ok little restaurant but the service was pretty cold in my opinion. No atmosphere to speak of so not bad either.. just nothing.

This is our favourite restaurant in Darwin - we have been here many times and never had a bad meal or service. We have probably tried all the dishes but our favourite would have to be the Chicken 65 and Indian Flag Dips for entree followed by Badami Murg and Butter Chicken Masala.
