I LOVE Saffrron. There is an extensive vegetarian menu, a rarity in Darwin. The curries are consistently delicious and the Dhal is to die for (I am a sucker for Dahl). The Pumpkin Kari Kari, Snake Beans, Dhal (enquire about this one as it often changes) and the Mushrooms are Vegan. The Sarbat, a vegan lemon&lime drink, is delicious and refreshing after a hot Darwin day. Takeaway is always a lovely option as the dishes are quite big and I am never able to finish them.
Unfortunately there are no Vegan deserts but the Vegetarian Vattalapam (like a Creme Caramel) is delicious.
Saffrron uses Eco-friendly tableware so just a note before going in. I think it is an awesome sentiment and you can see the awards they have won for doing it along the walls as you walk in.
Always be sure to book a table on Friday or Saturday night to avoid disappointment as they may be booked out.
Cons: Slightly expensive, Sometimes booked out Fri and Sat
