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 :)

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.
