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!

We didnt like this restaurant three years ago when we went. But figured it was time to revisit and give them another go. Well I can say this wont be the last time we attend. The food was great and for 5 people with a bottle of wine and a few cokes. All up was $250 which is good value... More

A delightful Indian Restaurant making the most of local top-end produce and with eco credentials - think up market paper plates and recycled timber cutlery - all work fine with the type of food. We lunched on ample, tasty food in a cool ambience.

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
