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.

“above and beyond every expectation”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

My gorgeous wife and I our had our wedding reception at Zafron. We have been celebrating many of life's important occasions at Zafron, such as birthdays, as we love this restaurant. Not only is the food absolutely amazing, the atmosphere is warm and inviting.

Fay, Michael and Azadeh put so much effort into their food and service. They genuinely want their guests to relax, be comfortable and have a great time over beautifully prepared food.

So, more about the food. Every item on the menu is delicious. They have created dishes with creativity and deep understanding of food flavours that complement each other. A prefect example is their Caspian Chicken dish. If you want proof that this is the best restaurant in the universe, there it is.

One of our guests is gluten intolerant and another is vegetarian and they catered to these guests with options that had the rest of the table sampling these dietary specific dishes as they looked and tasted so good.

Fantastic food, fantastic service. Have been going here for years and Michael, Chef Fay and staff always take care of us, like going to a family restaurant. Love the Caspian chicken.

“average”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

Myself and some oversea friend visited this restaurant. Loved the food. The service lacked a little bit of style and attention. Few things lacking could pay more attention. Would return one day if I ever visit Brisbane again.

“Thoroughly enjoyed it!”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

Four of us ate here a couple of weeks ago on a Sunday night and had the banquet. It was delicious. So much food that we could hardly finish it all. Very tasty and great service. We thought the pricing was very good for the amount of food and quality of food that we had. Great that it is also a BYO wine. So much cheaper than paying three times the price that wine costs in most restaurants! Would highly recommend it.

“My first Persian meal. Liked the delicate flavours and immaculate presentation and attentive but unobtrusive service.”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

Excellent for pre- theatre meal or good night out with friends. The place was understandably busy on a Saturday night. Every portion on each dish tasted like it was freshly prepared just for the order and came out as soon as completed. Made with love and presented with pride.
