They can do chai!

I have eaten a lot of Indian food and while the food presentation wasn't particularly remarkable, it was aromatic, bursting with flavour and heat-appropriate based on the server's descriptions. I am a vindaloo fan, so you can guess my leanings, but my husband prefers the milder side of life and... read more

Food was tasty but presentation skills are lacking. Resturant serves pita breat in place of actual Nans.

On the recommendation of a friend, we ordered a take-out pizza from Saffron. My friend always orders the Butter Chicken pizza, which she says is delicious, however my husband wanted something a little more traditional, so we had their Extra Vegetarian pizza, which was just amazing. It has roasted eggplant, roasted garlic, roasted zucchini, sun-dried tomatoes, green onions, artichoke hearts,... More

The menu has changed since last visit but still offers quality food at a reasonable price. If you have children there is a child's menu available. Sorry, no seniors menu for smaller appetites but staff will gladly pack up any leftovers for a guest to take home. I fully intended to eat only part of my meal and take the... More

Second time we've eaten here and while the service was outstanding, the food was just average. The butter chicken and paneer korma were passable but tasted almost like they came from a jar. The naan bread did not seem to be made in house as one would expect from a mid priced Indian food eatery. The inside of the restaurant... More

A group of friends had lunch here and enjoyed an authentic Indian meal. Great selection of dishes. The device was great, the meals were very flavourful.

Great pizza in a very friendly atmosphere. The staff is wonderful and the pizza is exceptional. It is a family style setting, nothing fancy but good service with great food.

Was looking for a decent place that had something other than the typical fare (didn't feel like typical pub / diner food). Came across this place, and wow! What a fortunate discovery. I like spicy food (Thai, Indian, Jamaican) as does my wife, but my kids really don't. Thus, it's a rare occasion I get to have such food. The... More

We live in Calgary and keep our boat at Pender Harbour. Stopping at Saffron is a yearly tradition when we get to the Sunshine Coast. The food was so fantastic when we arrived last week we had to go back tonight. The men ordered the Lamb Shank Curry and the women had the Extra Vegetarian Pizza. Both simply to die... More
