We had medium vindaloo chicken and lamb and they were fantastic. Not too hot. The lentil dish was also superb. Love the nan bread. Great service too.

delicious entree & main. Only downfall was that we were never offered drinks & the staff would rush away before you were able to say a word.

We were the only clients on a cold sunday afternoon, she turned the heater on for us which was very kind. We spent $54 for lunch which is okay but the food did not feel fresh. The beef dish was very tough and strong beef smell, we only hardly ate one small chunk. The eggplant dish had lots of oil... More

The food is top class. The service is friendly and attentive. Sometimes it gets a little noisy but you have to travel a long way to get a better Indian meal. Four of us ate 3 courses last night for $100. Great value.

We ordered hotel-delivery which was a bit tricky as we didn't realise we were short of plates and cutlery. Fortunately some plastic forks were included. The food itself was excellent! We ordered mixed entree - and were almost full after the decent sized portions. The butter chicken, lamb korma and fish curry were excellent - as were the garlic naans.... More

I had my doubts about Indian food as I had a bad experience many year ago. We were feeling like something different so gave it a try. Yummy the food was very good and. We enjoyed it very much. Will be going back. Thank you Saffron for renewing my faith in Indian food.

Dined there with a friend while working in Bathurst. Some locals suggested the Tamarin but we decided to give the Safron a go on the recommendation of a work colleague... It is a quiet unassuming restaurant but the food and service was first rate.... Fresh and spicy, the Rogan Josh suprisingly packed a punch and the Saag had fresh crisp... More

I never like eating solo, but last Friday I found myself in Bathurst on a bitterly cold night. What better time to try "Saffron" after a rap from my friend John B., a local who'd eaten there. I was not disappointed, in fact I'd go so far as to say it's the best Indian meal I've eaten west of the... More

We chose Saffron because of several good reviews on Tripadvisor. The restaurant is indeed on a par with the sort of run-of-the-mill Indian restaurants found in Britain. Our samosas were alright, and the chicken dishes reasonable - the Tikka Masala better than the Chittenda (which was only lukewarm). The meal was adequate but not great.
