Good place to eat Indian food. The menu has food from different parts of India and being vegetarians we tried most of the veg stuff. Food was good but a bit on the high price range. I would definitely go back to this place

Saffron is not particularly nice restaurant, As I eat Indian food all the time, the food is bland, service is average place is not good considering the location and prices are expensive, I would not recommend it, sorry but I have to be honest.

We have always taken our friends to this restaurant for Indian food... However with every visit the service levels seem to deteriorate.( we ignored A couple of times). On our last visit in spite of having just a few tables occupied a wrong order was served!... Seemed like a taken for granted attitude!... Very upsetting....time to look for an alternative....

To begin with we were the only patrons in the restaurant. We were hot and disheveled from walking in the heat and humidity but we were still served respectfully. My husband is a coeliac but all the waiters had a good understanding of what it means to be gluten free. The complimentary tomato soup to begin with was excellent. Our... More

We have visited saffron lounge in Katara couple of times and its always been a pleasure to visit it each and every time. Being Indians we expect a standard taste to the normal Indian Dishes, but Saffron lounge stands out and surprises us each time. Contemporary food with such amazing modern platting feels like we are experiencing "art on plate"... More

Some restaurant always keep improving based on customer feedback. Saffron is one among them. I offered some suggestions on South Indian Ennai Kara kulambu(oily , spicy vegetarian Indian curry) . By allowing some spices to cook for longer time you will get the distinctive taste in the food till the warmth in food exits. This was done and i tasted... More
