Two of us ate at this restaurant for the first time this week and plan to definitely visit again soon! The staff was responsive and the food excellent. We chose all vegetarian dishes, medium spicy--and the taste was perfect for both of our palettes. I...highly recommend Saffron if you are in Sofia!More

I've eaten at the Saffron on several occasions and have never been disappointed. Last evening six of us dined out and the both the food and service were excellent! (not to mention the beers!!!) I've lived in Sofia for 11 years and have eaten at...many Indian restaurants, but none can compare with Saffron, which has to be best Indian restaurant in Eastern Europe! Many thanks to the restaurant owner Prakash, who makes sure we are always happy. Can't wait to try to the brunch now.More

The experience was great. The food was so good, but the very best was the service. I wanted to have a small surprise for the bday of my boyfriend and I asked them to prepare a couple things, bur they did it multiplied by 3....Especially I'm really grateful to Mihaela who was the best waitress I've ever met. So helpful and smiley, keep her in the restaurant as long as you can!! Thank you very very much!! Благодаря!!More

Good food, nice terrace and polite staff. However, we found a hair in the lamb sauce. In addition, the portions are quite small. However, the lamb samosas were delicious.More

Vegetable samosa, butter chicken, chicken korma, lamb ???, and dessert. All the food is fantastic and prepared to your preferred level of heat. Our kids love the butter chicken. My son even licks the plate clean. The samosas were a hit, too. We'll have to...order again on our next visit. Our server was friendly and funny. It was so nice to go out to eat again!!More
