Thank you! I couldn't have asked for more. It was a memorable evening, not just for me, but for everyone who was in our group. For a few, it was their first visit to Saffron. The staff were attentive and courteous. The food tasted great. My favorite was butter paneer and similarly each one had a tasteful story to share.... More

I visited this place for a dinner with my family. First comment is about service. We were puzzled by the fact that customers (who booked a table) are first seated in the waiting area where they are required to place their food orders. Only after placing orders, customers are invited to their tables. This is not good. Second comment is... More

Reading the reviews of other people surprises me, I have tried the saffron rice and the butter chicken and they were both tasteless to say the least, the biryani rice was better at least it had some taste in it, we ordered the food medium spicy and from my experience in Indian restaurants I was prepared to sweat from the...

10 out of 10 **** We have been there at least 10 times .. Great food specially the appetizers which includes our fav chaats and kababs.. Ambience is awesome plus staff is very friendly. Very easy to get table if booking is done in advance. A must visit place for all chaat lovers and exotic Indian food <3

this is a very nice Indian restaurant in a really nice setting. Slightly out the way from the city centre but plenty to walk around after dinner. Staff were very attentive. Food was very nice. Went for lamb starter and chicken main. Portions were large. Dishes on offer from around India and effe

While I love Indian food and have been to many Indian restaurants, I was not prepared for the creativity, flavors and presentations at the Saffron Lounge. Wonderful location and beach views aside, you come here for the food. The variety of menu items leaves you struggling to choose and wishing you can try double the amount of what you could... More

We went there 2 days ago in the evening, on my first trip to Doha. I have been thinking about the food since then. :) The atmosphere & service were also great, but the food was great. I especially loved the soup in tiny cups (makes it even more delicious), the little kiwi and mint juice and the potato salad... More

A friend suggested we try this place because she had a taste for Indian food. Indian food that I've had in the past hasn't been good enough to make me want to eat it. So hesitantly, I agreed. I'm so glad I had a chance to experience Saffron Lounge. The ambiance and decor are great. The wait staff were very... More
