This restaurant was visited because I had always passed by the Saffron Hotel but never stopped by or heard anyone speaking about it. So, I went there with another friend of mine to try their restaurant which is called The Saffron Spice. The hotel had a very run down and dated feel which carried itself to the restaurant too. The...
