SYDNEY: Zaaffran Indian Restaurant
A belated dining experience: Zaaffran Indian Restaurant (Darling Harbour, Sydney):

Without any hesitation I would have to say that Zaaffran offers the best Indian food I have ever experienced. Unique flavours unlike anything I have tried before - this is not your typical curry house and really makes all the other Indian restaurants I have tried seem like novices.

A snapshot of a meal: Simple looking food, that delivers on so may levels.

SALMON MARINATED WITH YOGHURT, GARLIC, DILL AND MUSTARD; OVEN-ROASTED
WITH BELL PEPPER TOPPING; SPICED MASH; LEMON-TURMERIC REDUCTION; MINT CHUTNEY:
A very subtle flavoured, but elegent dish.


LAMB CUTLETS GRILLED WITH GINGER, GARLIC, BLACK PEPPER, CORIANDER AND CURRY LEAF, FLECKED WITH SESAME SEEDS; SEASONAL SALAD; GARLIC CHUTNEY; BEETROOT RAITA; POTATO WEDGES:
A simple looking dish but meet that is so tender it just melts away, with spicing to match.


GARLIC NAAN: the way it should be.


SYMPHONY OF KULFI AND ICE-CREAM: A selection of Aam ki Kulfi - Zaaffran's version of mango kulfi, Zaafran Sensation - a triumphant blend of pistachio with saffron, cardamon and almond, and Gulab aur Elaichi Kulfi - a sweet kulfi flavoured with rose petals and cardamon.


Zaaffran ultimately serves up some of the most unique tasting food of any type you are likely to try and certainly provides a massive "wow factor" in terms of taste. Deliacte spicing and subtle finishes make you yearn for more. It is a restaurant which I strongly look forward to visiting when I return to Sydney, featuring an intriguing menu which I cannot wait to explore further.

MY RATING: 15.5/20 - Food: 8.5/10 Service: 3.5/5 Ambience 3.5/5
