It never disappoints and Abu and his staff are always courteous and kind and the service and ambience are excellent. The food is always delicious and as we have lived in Bangladesh in the past we love the cuisine from that part of the... More

Went on a Wednesday night to celebrate a birthday. We were the only customers in the place but the food and staff were fantastic. Had the Tandoori Chicken starter and the Saffron Special Platter - both were excellent, very fresh and tasty. The Nawabi Chicken curry was delicious and not too spicy. The Peshwari Naan was excellent. Great food and... More

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
