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 :)

Best Indian food in Doha with extensive menu from different regions in India. Slightly higher priced restaurant, but one of the best choices in Katara village.

Very good service with brilliant food to match. Will be coming back soon and recommending to others, The only downside is the ignorant locals who insist on playing their music on their phones, without using headphones. Annoying. But not your fault. Great value for money! Thanks again

The truffle oil Lamb guchi curry was simply one of the best we've had on this planet and we've had plenty. Pricey but worth every mouthful!
