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!

A restaurant run by a celebrity chef. Location is good since its in Katara village. The food is made to suit the western palate. Must try the fried bhindi (okra).

The ambiance was fabulous. Sea-facing. So picturesque. We went as a family . Ordered two Chicken Dum Biryanis and Garlic Coriander Naan with Murgh Makhni ..it was unimaginably delicious. Amazingly spicy as we'd requested it to be. Really amazing place.. Would love to go back anytime again. Totally recommend any of you going to Saffron Lounge.. one of the "bestest"... More

Unlike many restaurants in Doha that start out great and then fizzle into tired flatness, Saffron Lounge has never stopped impressing. It's been open for four years now and is still filled whenever you go. You are guaranteed courteous service with a smile. The menu has a good range of options, all prepared fresh and delicious. My wife has gluten... More

This is a must try when bored of all the 5star hotel resteruarants. The food was really tasty and so much flavour without being over powerings. It was also quite light, we did not feel stuffed. Lots of little extras, soup and welcome drink and comp tea in tea lounge. Staff were very friendly and attentive. Highly recommend.
