A very busy restaurant in a great position. As regular diners of indian food, we were happily surprised with the variety, taste and presentation of each dish. All factors were way above the normal suburban Indian menu. Taste and chilli heat were balanced too. We were happy with the service although a young couple next to us had to wait... More

We had a lovely and very filling meal here. We used a tip from another reviewer and booked through Dimmi getting a 50% discount on our meals so we ordered a nice bottle of wine to go with dinner too :) Staff were lovely and attentive. The discount was processed as part of our bill and we didn't have to... More

Located at Darling Harbour, 2nd floor with good water views. We there were there on a Friday night and restaurant was full, soon realised that was because the food was delicious. The range is good, usual options and heat of dish can be altered to taste. We enjoyed a good meal of good quality. Food and drinks prices were reasonable.... More

Booking made online thru Dimmi who were offering 50% off food bill. We had the BBQ Banquet - which was $58pp which reduced to $29pp with the special. Overall a good deal with the Mushroom Naan being the best I ever tasted. We added a bottle of wine and overall spend was just under $100. See photos.

We visited Zaaffran on a very busy Saturday night. we had not booked and were very lucky to get a table even though it was early. We were met by a courteous gentleman who was able to locate the only spare table. Many people after us entered the restaurant and were not so lucky or were agreeable to wait at... More

Four of has dinner here on a Saturday night before a concert at the ICC (International Convention Centre). Turned up without a reservation and we were welcomed quickly and efficiently. Lovely location, although all restaurants at Darling Harbour have good locations, and the food was nice with well flavoured meals and lovely naan breads. Service staff were attentive and available...

I attended this contemporary restaurant overlooking Darling Harbour with my work colleagues. With the help of a very knowledgeable waiter we had a fantastic meal of authentic Indian dishes which were packed full of flavor without setting your mouth on fire. The menu accommodates people with a large range of food allergies including offering dairy, gluten and nut free meals... More

Staying in Darling Harbour

Neighbourhood Profile
Darling Harbour
The original docklands of Darling Harbour have been transformed into a tourist mecca with entertainment for the whole family. Cockle Bay Wharf offers dining options from budget to upscale and million dollar views of the harbour. Young crowds gather on weekends for nightlife that ranges from salsa clubs to Dj’s. Families can visit the Chinese Gardens of Friendship or the Sydney Aquarium, one of the largest in the world. The Sydney Maritime Museum and the IMAX theatre are also popular attractions. The Harbourside Shopping Centre is a site unto itself, with hundreds of shops, restaurants and bars. On Saturdays in the summer, the city puts on a spectacular fireworks show along the harbour's shore and there are plenty of other free events during the year - Darling Harbour Fiesta, VIVID’s light installations and the Sydney Festival, just to name a few.
