Description: The finest Middle Eastern dishes have been brought together on a single...
The finest Middle Eastern dishes have been brought together on a single menu. As Selected by our own Syrian master chef - Adnan. His knowledge of traditional and Mediterranean dishes, from the Lebanon to morocco is second to none. A delicious and mouthwatering range of truly refined cuisine is on offer here. What Chef Adnan has to say; "In the saffron we offer middle eastern food. That is food from a number of countries, such as Syria, Lebanon, Egypt, Morocco and the Gulf area. All of which offer very unique ways of cooking, ingredients and combinations. If I were to suggest a dinner to someone unfamiliar with Middle Eastern food then I would begin with a Lebanese appetizer, to set the right idea for food to come, this would be a mixed mezzah. For a main,well the choice is so great, so for just a couple, then a chicken musaka from the lebanon. Perhaps a barkouk tajine, which is stewed leg of lamb with dried plums, sesame and almonds. Also we offer a huge choice in traditional non meat dishes, this makes our cuisine very popular with vegetarians We serve a large range of deserts and we will soon be introducing Moroccan sweets."

very nice food

We enjoyed our evening meal, but one tip make sure you pre-book, we arrived at 7pm, we did not eat until 10pm as it was fully booked. Food was good, atmosphere great! Wine is very expensive in Egypt so drink spirits instead.

If you would like to try local foods, but are worried about the quality of some of the local restaurants, then this is the place to go. The local chefs prepare everything to international 5 star standard and provide you with the authentic taste which is wonderful Arabian food. Wonderful breads and salads, but the meat dishes are tasty but... More

The Hotel replied that they were sorry that there was too much and would address that. Hello !!!! it was left because it was pretty dire .... I had... More

After living in the Middle East for a couple of years, both myself and the wife really love Lebanese food. Saffron at Soho Square did not disappoint, with great food, great service, great atmosphere and a fantastic memory of Middle Eastern cuisine. We had Fatoush, Tabouleh, Houmous and Arabic Bread for starters, and had Lamb and Chicken kebabs for main... More

Visited here for a meal with 3 friends and had a very poor experience. It took over 2 hours to get a table and our starters with no apologies for the extended wait (been told five more minutes so many times we lost count). If there had been more restaurants in Soho square we would have walked out, they finally... More

We went here in November 2011. It was our Silver Wedding anniversary and we are so glad we went here for our meal. Everything was delicious. We had free dips and bread, I had prawns in chilli which were really hot, my husband had bean soup. We both had mixed grill which was absolutely beautifully cooked and so tender. I... More

I had never eaten authentic middle Eastern cuisine up until dining at Saffron and the experience was great. I cant describe how brilliant... More
