We ate here as a large group and I couldn't believe how accommodating they were! Everyone was served quickly, drinks were provided quickly, the food was fabulous and the manager was happy to split the bill several ways. Exceptional.

We are not fans of Indian foods, but it worth having one once a while. Zaaffran is located alongside the Darling harbour, which guarantees a very nice view. The restaurant is big. Very friendly service. Dishes in very big quantity. Nice curry.

After looking at the reviews I decided to have Biryani and I wasn't disappointed. Desserts were not bad too.

The Malaya is my long-standing fav curry spot on Darling Harbour, but I decided to go for Indian on my latest visit, and tried Zaaffran instead. I was thoroughly pleased with the choice. Great service, a menu that is certainly not your run-of-the-mill Indian fare,...More
