A little pricy however friendly service. We went for our wedding anniversary and they surprised us with a special card wishing us a happy anniversary, then more surprises at the end with a candle on our desserts. We ordered the royal banquet which was a flavour explosion, the best Indian we’ve eaten! They catered to our tastes and adjusted the menu to our liking. Absolutely amazing food, we are so happy we chose Zaaffran for our special day!
Thanks for taking the time to provide us and our team with a review of your experience. It sounds like you had a lovely anniversary, and we appreciate that you entrusted us to be part of such a special occassion. We're thrilled to hear that our team took exceptional care of you and that you had a lovely time. We'll be sure to pass your feedback onto our team, and we wish you many more wonderful years together. Be sure to keep an eye out on The Fork website, as we often offer 50% dining deals too, so you might be able to squeeze in another visit there sometimes. We appreciate your kind words, and look forward to welcoming you back again soon. Best wishes.

Amazing food & service + the view was a bonus. Highly recommend the paneer makhan masala if you’re looking for a vegetarian treat 👌🏾

We had meals here before on several occasions and enjoyed the meals or banquet. This time service was very poor, that we had to call someone every time we wanted something. Desert was served without spoon, come on Zaaffran, this is a basic requirement. I quietly mentioned to one of the staff, but the reaction was so passive, that I am getting the impression that the staff is demoralised. Management and owner please note. Your chefs are great, but service need to improve!!!

Wonderful service that went out of their way to make us feel welcome! The standout dish was the butter chicken which was the best I’ve ever had! The salted lassi was a unique drink I enjoyed. Really enjoyed my time here!
Thanks for your kind words and feedback Elizabeth. We're pleased to hear that you enjoyed dining with us and that you had a lovely experience. The butter chicken is very popular and we'll be sure to pass your kind words onto our chefs and team. We thank you for your recommendation, we appreciate it and we hope to welcome you back again in the future :)

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
