I was disappointed with this place for several reasons. It was very average tasting Persian food and the main course portion were small. The appetizers were not that great and again over priced small portions. I am a little puzzled about all the positive reviews...More

An amazingly underrated place for Persian food...is Zafron! Each and every dish on their menu is mind blowing! The people running the show are lovely and although you can rack up a nice bill trying everything...it's absolutely worth every penny! I was saddened when I...More

The foods are authentic and delicious. The service is very good. The food portions are enough. It might be a little bit expensive but all good in total.

By far one of my most favourite restaurants in Brisbane. The owners, Fay and Michael, are very welcoming and the atmosphere is warm and friendly. The meals are hearty and value for money with plenty of Middle Eastern flavour. Have eaten here many times and...More

Beautiful decor and ambience. A bit pricey though. Food is out of this world. I recommend prior reservation as this is a very popular place and usually packed even during week nights. We had just walked in and were lucky to get a table.

Delicious food, relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff. This is a favourite restaurant of ours - for intimate dinner for two, dinner with friends or dinner with family. Unfortunately, we don't get there as often as we would like.

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.
