I visited the charming Saffran Indian Restaurant in Lismore . .It was a real treat and not what I expected in rural Eire.The staff were very attentive and efficient.The food was excellent and I would highly recommend it to visitors.There is more to Lismore than a spectacular castle !

Friendly staff, good flavours, tasty Indian, surprise find in this small Irish town. They have no alcohol licence so remember to get your wine / beer from the off-licence across the road - assuming you would like wine / beer with your tasty Indian.

I love my Indian, I have been to all of the restaurants in the area and further afield just to find the best. Two things I love about this place and really are the only two things you need to know. 1. Quality food, amazing taste and I have never had a bad meal there. 2. Price, it is fair,... More

Beautiful food and great service . Very good value for money . Friendly staff. Food and bread tasted fresh and just the right flavours and spices. The only drawback was that the restaurant was a bit dark to read the menu. I would certainly recommend it.

Very slow service: we waited one hour faor the main courses. Really expensive. Every dish tasted horrible and had a bad colour. Nothing to do with Indian cooking.Main spice: sugar.

As for the title, we ha a very good dining experience there, eating indian food at its best. Service was fast and relaxed. It's located on the main street of Lismore city centre, next to the castle.

I have eaten in this restaurant several times, very friendly staff, attentive without being too overbearing,fine sized portions that leave you feeling well filled rather than hungary or over stuffed. Reasonably priced, all in all a very enjoyable quiet relaxing meal in a quiet relaxing town.
