Our first night in Darwin, we decided to try somewhere near our hotel, and chose Saffrron. The food was excellent, and the people very friendly. We shared both entree and mains, we particularly enjoyed the Barramundi Mooli and one of our favourites the Butter Chicken Masala for mains. We are in Darwin for a week, and we will definitely be...

We had the banquet for 8 people which was full of seafood with some lamb and chicken, as well as prawns and other fish curry. The service was slow but the food was good, lots of unique and distinct flavours. They were a little light on with the rice bread and pappadams, and the shared food was served in take... More

My only complaint was the service was good but missing a couple of small things but really only very small things. We weren't told one dish... More

The four of us loved the food (we couldn't remember when we'd eaten better Indian) and the service was friendly and professional. The presentation of the meals was a feature (see the image for the entrees) and the flavours certainly different (in a good way) from the standard Indian. We would definitely go here again and wished it was our... More

Indian food is not my husband and I's favourite cuisine, but we were staying at the Quest in Parap and thought the restaurant looked nice. The food was fantastic! The highlight was the chicken entree and lamb entree...finger licking good! The prawn curry and butter chicken were also yummy. We were impressed that Saffron use NT seafood....nothing imported.
