You can see why they won the Golden Plate award, the lamb was the best I have ever had. The mains were very tasty and the naan superb. Great value for money.

If you are in Darwin then Saffrron is a must for the best indian meal I’ve had in Australia. The most delicious meal. Fine ingredients and subtle flavours combined with friendly service make this trip out of the CBD well worthwhile.
