    As always had great food, atmosphere and service. Despite the lower numbers due to the current virus issues, the staff maintained excellent service and food quality.

    Lovely and efficient staff, convenient harbourside location and great, tasty food. It could only ever have been a banquet for me and I was not disappointed. I appreciate that the banquet menus allow substitutions and is very clear on any surcharges. Highly recommended.

    Our first time here was very welcoming, waiters were very friendly, helpful and professional. The restaurant is very clean. The food was fresh, delicious and home like. They also made butter chicken for our grandchildren without chillies. The harbour views are beautiful here also. I highly recommend this restaurant.

    Special (limited) menu if booked via theFork - Neither inspiring nor tasty; in fact not really the way it is cooked in India ! Curries were filled with cream !!! Also not sure if we did received 30% discount (I doubt) - didn't care to take the receipt. I wouldn't go back and don't recommend to anyone else.

    There bbq dishes of main course were not at all tasty. Food was so bland. There were no flavours except strong flavour of butter like thing which was not liked by us. We were not able to finish our food. We liked appetisers but not the main course.

    Beautiful location, nice and attentive staff; I thought the vegetarian dishes were solid but missed the zest and power of flavour of certain Indian restaurants in Western Sydney. Still, a lovely meal with friends - I would return!

    Fantastic food, we really enjoyed the beetroot patties (starter) and both our curries were 10/10. Loved the barramundi curry, creamy, spicy - really great. Great view when out on the terrace.

    Food was disappointing. Specially the lamb, though prawn curry was okay. Portion sizes were also small.

About the restaurant

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
