What an absolutely beautiful and amazing surprise . We had the WA octopus and duck to start, both were delicious and looked stunning . For mains it was lamb rump and tenderloin. The elegance and flavour on both plates was exceptional . To finish it was the baklava and candied pumpkin 🎃. Simple perfection . All of this and excellent service with a refined atmosphere . Thank you Safran . See less

Safran is a fabulous restaurant specialising in Turkish food. Glorious food and wine. Lovely staff. Attentive service. Have different menus and accommodate groups. Happy to recommend highly... but hope I can still get a booking if everyone discovers this gem. See less

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary there last night. We had a nicely hidden away, quiet table. The ambience was very pleasant. I tried a Raki and it was an interesting experience. The meals we had were beautifully presented and tastes and mixtures of flavours and textures was superb. My only comment was that being a special occasion I thought we might have been offered a freebie in the form of Turkish delight or something with our coffee. We will be back again. See less

The meal my wife and I had last night was perfect. We had the 3 course meal with matching paired wines. Service was great and never felt rushed even though they were busy. Turkish bread as a starter with 2 dips...perfect, entrès mains and deserts were all so flavoursome. Every plate was totally empty and there is no better recommendation than that. Paired wines were very good as well. We are very Lucy to have Safran as a local restaurant. See less

Exceptional dining at Safran , can’t wait to return and try the rest of the menu … Great value for a 3course dinner of this high standard …our waitresses recommend the Turkish Rose which was perfect with the dishes chosen ..highly recommended the wine too… Fortunate to have this standard at our door on the Coast 👏👏👏 See less

Love the food, service and atmosphere. The cost of cocktails, in terms of value for money/serving size is the one thing the owners can improve on, to make it an amazing experience. You must leave room for dessert. See less

Sensational, unique food and fantastic service at this hidden gem. I've never eaten anything quite like it. I've eaten a lot of Turkish food, but nothing as refined as this. We had the scallops, kingfish, zucchini flowers, barramundi, beef rib, mousse and the sarma roll. Everything was amazing. We'll be back next time we're in the Central Coast for sure. See less

A great middle eastern flavour, sizing was great, flavours were great, all cooked to perfection. the only downside may have been wine selection. Service was attentive and lovely. Great experience, highly recommend. See less

Great modern Turkish cuisine. The staff were attendant, friendly, and accommodating, all-in-all good hospitality. The environment is cosy without feeling like you're packed in to a space that's too small. The food was great, and didn't find anything to complain about. Flavours are blended and complemented well, and will certainly be returning to try some of the other dishes! See less

Well worth the visit. Friday and Saturday offer a 4 course set menu and you are able to chose from a number of options. Definitely recommend picking the authentic Turkish dishes as they are amazing. There are mixed options for seating, definitely try to get an inside spot if in the colder months and always book ahead as this place is popular. See less

We had the 3 course set menu on a Thursday evening for $50ea. Really enjoyed the food, service was friendly and attentive. We dined with our 10m old daughter and we were able to sit her in a high chair beside us at the table. See less
