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.

Once again you never disappoint.... I love you food so much so I always order bread on the side to soak up the gorgeous rich creamy sauce. CASPIAN CHICKEN completes me.

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

Garlic and feta lavash roll, perfect flavour combination and portion size. Caspian chicken, where do i start, your silky thick sauce and beautifully encrusted chicken that is cooked to perfection. You lay on a bed of spinach and carrot that complement you so well. Every bite is delight, i am your biggest fan. Your dessert are fantastic and fresh.

Our group of four chose the tasting plate for starters , it was delicious. Our main meals were tasty and filling. The restaurant was very busy but the service was excellent. Our food arrived in good time... More

Wonderful, authentic Persian food tucked away in New Farm. Chef Fay always dishes out fresh, tasty food with complex regional flavours to match anyone's palate. The owners are true locals welcoming repeat customers with smiles, waves, and a seat; and always on the look out for new faces to welcome. Big weekend parties, or quick weeknight meals, the food is... More
