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

Nice location and setting, excellent service and extensive menu. There was a home made lemonade drink on the menu that was the most refreshing thing ever. And there was also a good twist on the popadom which was very quirky and enjoyable. Would definitely recommend visiting if in Doha!
