Excellent place, top notch, delicious Indian food that could easily compete with any good restaurant in India. The location is a bit far from town - Student Complex - but it is easy to reach with public transportation. If you crave for Indian food in...Sofia - that is the place.More

From the great service to the absolutely incredible food and atmosphere. We sat outside at a table with central fire on table. Presentation and flavours, a joy to savour.

We have visited this restaurant every time we come to Sofia and always look forward to it. The service is excellent with friendly staff. The curry dishes are superb, however, this time the naan bread was disappointing. I think they have stopped using a Tandoor...to cook them, such a shame.More

What a place! I have been in many Indian places across the globe, but Saffron in lovely Sofia did not disappoint. The food was sublime and the service was top notch coupled with very good atmosphere and lovely music. I had the chicken chat as...a starter. It is a sale, tasty and the portion was very generous. I also tried the Lamb Seek Kebab. What a dish. Minced lamb with green chillies and some sublime Indian spices. A dish to die for and the portion was big, enough for 2 people. I was also temped with the Chicken Kali Mirch. Spicy and tasted nice. Will return for sure to sample more from the talented Indian Chef Prakash Mishra.More

The food is delicious and it is worthy to travel from the center to the restaurant. I recommend trying some of the more traditional dishes just to experience the amazing Indian food.

Although the restaurant is not centrally located, I do recommend it to everyone who loves Indian cuisine. Food and service - perfect, prices are above average for Sofia but still reasonable for what you get - 20-25 EUR for a proper dinner with a beer,...I think it is ok.More

The food was really good, heart-warming I would say! Chicken tika masala was very nicely seasoned and the starters were also pretty tasty. The dessert we had was well made(I thinks it's called milk balls) with a flavorful syrop which we loved! We will visit...again for sure! Highly recommended! :)More
