Great service, delicious food and fireworks at 8.30!

great staff, excellent view and table, food was not quite up to expectation although plentiful - the 'spicy' option was a bit bland and flavors not quite to our palates (but that could just be personal taste).
Hi John Thanks for taking the time to provide us and others with a review of your visit here with us. We're pleased to hear that our staff and team took great care of you, and that you enjoyed the view as much as we do. We're sorry to hear that the food wasn't to your liking, and all comments and feedback are appreciated. I've passed your feedback onto our executive chef' and we'll be certain to look into this. Our cuisine isn't exactly traditional Indian as some might know it, but rather a culmination of our teams experience, fine dining techniques and finesse, as well as featuring and showcasing dishes and specialties from non mainstream parts of India. If you'd like things to be stepped up in the heat factor to extreme, or if there were specific dishes you ordered lacked oomph, should you return in future let us know and we'll be sure to remedy this. Thanks,

This was yet another dinner at Zaffran which is slowly becoming our favourite restaurant. This time we took our friends who enjoyed the experience as much as we enjoy every time. Now, we just need a small reason to go to Zaaffran.

I didn’t notice at the time of paying bill but I wasn’t given the 50% discount and the staff made no effort in making sure that the bill is correct. I am not sure if they can refund me the money now or not.

About Zaaffran

Indian X-Factor Exotic. Exciting. Magical. These are the words used to describe Zaaffran. Perched up on the upper floor of the mall, this marvel fills up with hungry folk looking for a fantastic Indian feast night after night. The well-regarded Indian restaurant knows how to put on a good feed - just ask any one of the diners eating here mid week, or the flock of people that descend here on the weekends. Right on the waterfront of Darling Harbour, across from Cockle Bay and King Street Wharf, Zaaffran serves authentic Indian that’s both fresh and innovative, with a great intensity and depth of flavours. Be dazzled by some of the best Indian dishes in the city. It’s guaranteed to change the way you think about this cuisine. The bar has been raised. Best dish: Macchli Charminar: oven roasted with yoghurt. ginger, garlic, lemon & ‘garam masala’; onion tomato and prawn topping; potato smash; lemon-lime turmeric reduction; mint chutney
