We hesitated entering the restaurant as there was only 1 table with 2 persons occupying it. But we did enter in the end and waited a really long time to be served. The sullen staff handed our menus to us and we had to wait a long time before he came to take our order. Drink prices were exorbitant here!... More

Saffron is like one of the restaurants on Gordon Ramsey's Kitchen Nightmares. The wall paint was peeling badly, the furniture is canteen tables and chairs. The food is a poor impersonation of indian food and not fresh. I could smell the vegetables had gone off as soon as it arrived. I don't want to imagine how dirty the kitchen must... More

I have been coming to Saffron for more than 15 years. It is a place where the family comes to, for comfort food. The butter chicken is excellent and so is the spinich with cheese, and mutton korma. My son thinks that the curry squid is world class but it is not always available. Saffron also have curry crabs which... More

A great place for a nice northern Indian meal. Oh the tender lamb and some sumptuous starters too. We go regularly on a week night and it's always friendly and of good quality. I suggest asking the waitress what she thinks would be good. Would be great for kids too

I was here with my family for dinner. Service was extremely slow, food to close to an hour to arrive. Upon arrival the spinach had a foul smell and there nothing north indian about it, seemed like the chef threw in some raw spinach and stir fried it! The bhatura's were not soft but instead fried to a crisp. On... More

This is a family-run business in Taman Sri Hartamas, KL. Mum's the word here and the sons are doing a great job running it. Food's Indian (mostly northern) and certainly excellent. Nice bar, too.

Saffron has been around for almost 15 years and I've never been disappointed since I went there for the first time about 12 years ago. It's nothing posh, but the food is excellent. If you're new to Indian cuisine, just trust the recommendations of the owner - you won't be disappointed.
