    Friendly service. Good atmosphere. Food was the standout. The pakora was excellent. The Goa and veggie curries not far behind. Very generous servings. This is our 4th trip to this restaurant. It is consistently very good indeed.

    We joined our friends who we met on a Winery tour of Orange. The Owner knew his wines and met our needs. The food was magnificent. We were the last to leave. Was a wonderful evening.

    After reading the reviews , we visited Zaffran for an early dinner on my husband’s birthday. The food was beautifully flavoured and generously portioned. The service was excellent and the venue fresh. My husband had the buttered chicken and loved it. I had the salmon and prawns, so fresh and tasty- great spice combinations.

    This was our first visit since Covid restrictions and it did not disappoint. The chef came out from the kitchen to welcome us back and the food was amazing as always, especially the pistachio kulfi.

    On our return visit this restaurant did not disappoint. A large menu full of interesting items. with an extensive drinks list as well. Prices were a little on the high side but you get what you pay for.

    The food was absolutely delicious. As good as anything I have eaten at Indian restaurants in Sydney. Great service and excellent value. Will definitely be back next time I am in Newcastle.

    Absolutely loved the food and hospitality. Authentic Indian food. Samosas were great but Shahi Paneer was mind blowing. Pistachio Kulfi is a must-have. Mr. Raj (the owner) attend you personally. Definitely coming here every time I visit Newcastle.

    We were warmly greeted, the food was delicious ( the tandoori cutlets were superb), the service excellent. The openness of the kitchen adds to the atmosphere and the aromas emanating from it were amazing. The decor is understated and pleasant. Dimmer lighting would allow diners to better appreciate the stunning hanging lanterns. A very enjoyable experience.

    Incredibly warm welcome to the restaurant and genuine enquiries as to whether we were happy. We took our three kids and they told us not to worry if they made any mess - just enjoy ourselves. Couldn't rate the food and services high enough. Wonderful Indian!!

    A wonderful restaurant recommended by a friend. The food was fresh and superb with lovely presentation and flavours. The staff were friendly and helpful and took orders from the table. A beautiful wine list and something for everyone on the menu. I would definitely go again!

    Gem of a restaurant. Service was exceptional along with serving size and taste!! Was definitely one of the best Indian experiences we have ever had. The flavours were sensational. It’s a shame we don’t live in Newcastle
