Dining time a bit short .Should allow for at least 2hours, as lots of minutes lost between looking at the menu , ordering the drinks and food, and being served. We had to hurry to finish our meals and as a result could not order the desserts and the teas, which is a shame.

We had great service, great food and lovely views during our dinner experience. The manager went out of his way to cater to our guest with allergies. Food was delicious and no one left hungry.

I love the the biryani dish, perfect spiciness. I am coming back in 2 weeks. Highly recommended everyone to try this place. I love the food. I came here around 10 years ago, it was more like a fine dining before. It has changed and now more local or family friendly.
Thanks so much for your lovely review, Eunice. It's wonderful to hear we didn't disappoint after 10 years and that we will be seeing you again soon! Our biryani is always a favourite so we're pleased to hear you enjoyed it. We will pass on your very kind remarks to our team and look forward to seeing you again very soon.

My friend and I went there for dinner on a Tuesday night. First of all, the dining area was very lovely, with the view of the harbor and the fresh wind. Secondly, some of the staffs were very friendly and professional, also with lovely smiles. Thirdly, the food was very delicious! We loved the mushroom naan and the potato naan, and we also enjoyed a chicken dish and a beef dish, finished with a dessert. Overall, it was a lovely dinning experience and we had a great time!
We are very happy to hear you had such a positive experience at Zaaffran Xiaoying. It is so lovely to hear that you loved your food and our friendly staff looked after you so well. We will be sure to share your review with them and hope you will come and see us again in the future.

My partner and I had the Vegetarian banquet here under a Dimmi offer, along with a few lassi's. I was impressed - speed and pacing of entree, main and dessert was great and every item tasted lovely. It is so nice to sit and eat there on the terrace and enjoy the view and company, really special. My only recommendation is on the palak paneer - the spinach and paneer cheese felt like very separate elements as opposed to a cohesive curry. I'm nit-picking though - everything was overall great :)
Thank you so much Jaryd for your very kind words. We are thrilled that you had such a good experience with us, that our staff looked after you and that you loved your food. We will pass on your remarks to our team and look forward to your next visit with us.

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
