I really enjoyed Saffron. We took my MIL (who is of Indian descent) who said this was one of the best Indian restaurants she's been to outside India. She is also vegetarian and appreciated the variety of vegetarian food instead of being relegated to steamed veggies on the last page. We also took our 14mo daughter who sat is a... More

Me, my mother and brother went there for a dinner and we where not disappointed from our experience as my mother at first was afraid of spicy food, but the chief make our dishes light spicy and we all enjoyed our dining experience there. The food and service were excellent. We shared an appetizer " Sambosa" and a main course... More

Great ambience, nice décor, nice location (in Katara) and very well trained and courteous staff. The presentation of the dishes is excellent, portion size is ok. Went with my office colleagues. My colleagues loved the food. However, for me and my Indian friends the food didn't live up to the hype / rather expectations. The food taste wise was very... More

Appetizers are on point at Saffron!! We had chowpatty chaat, meen pulli munchi, and hariyali jhinga. The hariyali jhinga was my favourite, shrimp cooked to perfection and the herb marinade was not too overpowering. The meen pulli munchi has the perfect crisp to it and such a delicate yet aromatic tamarind marinade. We were suggested the chowpatty chaat and I... More

10 of us visited Saffron Lounge on 1st December following some research on Tripadvisor, and what an inspired choice it was. It is located in a nice building in the Cultural Village. We chose the set menu for 210QR per head and it was beautiful. The appetiser was a combination of Bombay Potato, shrimp, shish kebab and chicken. This was... More

Undoubtedly Saffron Lounge can be rated the best Indian Restaurant in Qatar..Everything about the place is perfect. The ambience is great - u can have an outdoor seating in the winters to enjoy the weather or take a cozy place inside. The service lacks nothing. They have limited options for people who want to start the meal with a soup!... More

The food was excellent although a little pricey. The sauces were very tasty but not over-the-top. The chicken and lamb were of top quality and cooked so they remained succulent and not dry. An excellent experience.

A craving for Indian food made me land at Saffron.. And the experience was a delight! Some of the signature dishes are very unique. The rice items were perfect in terms of aroma, authenticity and spiciness. A must visit for Indian food lovers :)
