Description: Zafron has a simple and unpretentious ambience to provide a comfortable social space that features quality and taste. It's raison d'etre is how the cuisine tastes and presents. Only quality ingredients are used and no shortcuts are taken. Everything is hand-prepared fresh by Chef. Zafron has a reputation as a quality venue for large group bookings. Chef's Signature dish for Zafron is her Caspian Chicken. In this East-meets-West dish, Persian ingredients such as pomegranate molasses, pine nuts and Persian saffron contribute to a unique taste with a French-style design. The chicken tenderloins are marinated in Persian pomegranate molasses then pan seared, rolled in crushed roasted pine nuts, breadcrumbs and aromatic spices and baked. The tenderloins are then placed on wilted spinach and caramelised carrots, then dressed with a beautiful saffron white wine sauce and drizzled pomegranate molasses. Only one place on the planet has this dish and it is our most ordered item on the menu! Chef's Tapas Shared Plates are unrivaled for taste and value. Each platter comes with 4 tapas for two persons with a lovely salad garnish. Each tapas and sauce is hand-made.

The food was very tasty but a tad over-priced for the serving sizes. Being BYO makes up for it, as does the service. Very popular on a friday night so I'd recommend bookings and a verandah table (turning the inside fans off at 10pm on a Friday night to encourage patrons to leave was also a tad off-putting!)

I have been here twice now and was impressed both times. We ordered the banquet both times, and there was plenty of food and it tasted amazing! They also catered well for the gluten free members of the group.

Lovely atmosphere as well, and the staff were very helpful and friendly. Note that it is BYO.

We had eaten enough that day and dragged ourselves to Zafron because we didn't want to cancel at a late hour. So glad we did!!! The restaurant is so cute and we were able to sit outside on the veranda and enjoy the balmy weather. Being from Melbourne this was a treat. We ordered the banquet as this seems very good value (even though we thought we couldn't possibly fit it in. We did.) Our daughter has a gluten intolerance and was really pleased with the careful way the waitress explained what was gluten free as the dishes arrived and with the gluten free extras supplied. It was a great meal and would go again.

I have visited Zafron on a number of occasions and have found the food to be absolutely delightful. I'm just working my way through the menu but I have to confess to starting back at the begiining a few times because it's so good. On my latest visit the waitress was friendly and attentive. She described the dishes as she put them on the table and came back a bit later to see how we were enjoying each one. The restaurant was fairly busy so it wasn't that she had nothing to do. This is a really good place - try it
