Description: Zafron's unique cuisine is representative of the 25 years of professional experience and passion from Chef/Owner Farideh Knopf (Chef Fay). The diverse menu offers about 30% traditional Persian dishes. Other dishes are Euro-style fusion with Mediterranean, French and Italian influences. Our most popular dish is Caspian Chicken- a French styled dish of pomegranate-marinated chicken tenderloins with wilted spinach and carmelised carrots topped with a creamy white whine and saffron sauce and pomegranate molasses.Zafron is unpretentious and welcoming. The dishes are prepared with care and love.

I had dinner here with 4 friends and all left impressed. It was a relatively quiet Tuesday evening but the ambience from the restaurant quickly drowned out the street noise. The crusted lamb was delicious and my sister enjoyed the spicy vegetarian dish. Only downside is if you are vegetarian and not keen on eggplant you can't really avoid it!... More

This is a very busy restaurant, but they haven't lost the personal touch. This was one of those places where I couldn't decide what to eat because each item looks amazing. Whilst it is located on a busy street, once you sit down and enjoy the sensational food and great service, the noise around you fades away. We'll be back... More

What a great restaurant experience. Great ambiance and sumptuous food. We let the staff choose the menu for us - trust them, they know what people will love. I am still salivating.

We had a fantastic dinner at Zafron. Consistently innovative and delicious food including cherry rice with lamb, vegetarian tapas platter, meat tapas platter, baclava, etc. our service was attentive and exceptional too. In summary, one of the best restaurants in Brisbane! Will be back many times.

We were invited to attend a birthday gathering and had not heard of this restaurant before. After looking at Urban Spoon and Trip Advisor we had no concerns to saying YES. It was everything others had said it was and more. Apart from our shared entrée the food was incredible. Really sensational complex flavours that had us sharing our dishes... More

In Brisbane with my wife, for few days, looked for somewhere special for our 39th anniversary. As usual we check out the tripadvisor rated restaurants. we were looking for something a little different, as where we live there are not many options. Our selection was Zafron, and we were NOT disappointed. It is BYO and a bottle shop not too... More

My husband and I dine here regularly and have brought friends here from around the world and locals who become regulars too. Chef Faye's food is unbelievable. You can taste the love and quality ingredients she uses. Truly! Front of house Michael's quirky sense of humor and amazing guitar is always a treat. A definite for a quality casual yet... More

Really hard to find any negatives with our meal. Part of a group of 8 celebrating a friends birthday, we ordered the 3-course banquet, for ease as well as it included a number of items I was eyeing off the menu anyway. Each course was better than the last, there was a great range of flavours and each meal was... More
