We settled on this restaurant based on the reviews on trip adviser, looking for food which we do not have available in the town where we live. We normally only eat mains but had entrees as well as we did not want to pass up on the opportunity. All the food we had was excellent, every bite was worth overstepping... More

Just want to say that their signature chicken dish (don't recall the name - maybe the Caspian Chicken others are talking about) was insanely good. If I'm ever back in Brisbane, this will be one of my first dinners I have.

This restaurant is in my home town. Anyone visiting Brisbane that wants an evening of delicious food should take a trip to Zafron on Brunswick in New Farm. We take friends here to introduce them to a fusion of Persian and Mediterranean style food. My husband and I dine here regularly as we know the food will be fabulous and... More

I invited a group of family and friends to join me for a birthday celebration meal at Zafron. The manager was extremely accommodating, and the food was lovely (I had just returned from a trip to Iran, and I have to say, the Persian food is better at Zafron!). The long table on the front verandah, the atmosphere, the helpful... More

My wife and decided to go based on the positive reports on trip advisor and were not disappointed. Wait staff were pleasant with good knowledge of the menu backed by excellent service. Our entree was the shared Zafron handmade mixed tapas which we both enjoyed. This was followed by Khoresht-I-Shirazi a lamb stew which we also enjoyed. To finish the... More

service is always great, the food is excellent & consistent. The dishes served are unique to Faye & Michael, you'll be challenged to find this quality of tasting food in Brisbane, possibly even in Australia. The best food in Brisbane. 10/10
