Visited as party of 3 for dinner. I found the choice on the menu excellent. I settled for a seafood curry, which tasted great. Fresh ingredients and well cooked.

I had a dinner with friends. The place is very clean and tidy. The staffs are very nice and kind, and the food is incredible. We ordered Byriani, a chicken curry dish, a lamb curry dish and a fish curry dish. We really really enjoyed all. Well, it has the view in darling harbour too.

We had dinner at Zaafron over the long weekend. We are not typically big Indian eaters but thought we would try something different and were in no way disappointed. The food was absolutely delicious. We sat outside on the terrace area overlooking the water whilst a little chilli the ambience and view of the water while eating scrumptious food you... More

The service was a little slow, but balanced by a tour de force from the kitchen - a dish of a tandoori spring chicken of extraordinary subtlety and skill, together with a very fine garlic naan.

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.
