With the smallest Muslim population in Australia, the demand for halal food in Tasmania is not as great as in other areas of Australia and that is reflected in the options on offer. With The Saffron Waterfront Indian Restaurant able to serve halal meals upon request, it’s clear that halal certified dining is gaining traction in the apple isle, where Battery Point restaurant Kathmandu Cuisine stands alone as an authentically halal experience. It is popular with locals and visitors alike for the impassioned Nepalese experience they provide, and is well worth a visit on your next trip to Tassie.
The Saffron Waterfront Indian Restaurant
Situated in the historic and picturesque wharf area of Hobart, The Saffron has long been a favourite haunt for locals, and for good reason: the chefs have extensive experience in preparing traditional Indian cuisine, with many having worked at five star hotels throughout India.
The cuisine is authentic North Indian and Kashmiri, although the chefs are happy to accommodate requests for special dishes outside of the regular menu, and all meat dishes are prepared using halal meat. Select seafood and vegetables are also chosen for freshness and flavour, and meals are always cooked fresh every day, ensuring a tasty experience for all diners.
