Great Indian food and friendly staff

Always greeted with a smile and welcome. Pleasant, easy going atmosphere. The food is good and is served by competent staff. Parking is easy if you have a vehicle, at the side of the restaurant. Make sure you know what you are ordering, a friend ordered something but didn't realise that he should... read more

We were only the second table taken for dinner but I think they must have lost the chef. The mezze was very very tired and the fish we chose as a main course was cremated. Thank goodness for the view. We will not go again....ever

This is my favourite restaurant when i go to Dalyan. It is situated by the river and you can choose either inside or out. It would be worth while booking in the high seasons. The tables have beautiful linen which I personal like. They have a wide selection of fish dishes. My particular favourite is grilled crab. Yum. Our Turkish... More

A fantastic restaurant that gets all the important things right … and achieves that with an effortless charm and absolute passion about food, people and service. I remember when I went to it when it first opened a number of years ago that this was a place that was going to become a firm favourite. It was and still is... More

I've been in Dalyan 4 nights and have already eaten at the Saffron twice. Last night I had the cheese rolls starter ( lovely filo pastry filled with feta type cheese ) - they were so fresh and light followed by a fabulous fillet steak and peppercorn sauce. The service was spot on and and of course you get a... More

It's essential to go there when the sun is going down and you must get a table on the river. The atmosphere at sundown is lovely as it's all quietening down. The owner and staff are friendly and attentive and the food is very appetizing even the lovely Turkish rice.

we stayed just down the road to Saffron and it soon became our favorite place to eat. No hassle at the door but the waiter are happy to help if you need it. VERY wide selection of local dishes along with a few "English" style to. Restaurant is clean, tidy and comfy with lovely views over the river and the... More

The best meal in Dalyan! Superb quality of food and service! I can not fault them at all! Although it was the end of the season they still paid just as much attention to us as it was in a hight of the season! Bread was just out from the oven, followed by a tasty mixed seafood main dish I... More
