We stayed in Sechelt for several nights, and ate at Saffron every night! We were impressed by the vegetarian options available to us, and by the taste and quality of the Indian food. And really good pizza, too! Even my brother-in-law and his wife, who eat out regularly, enjoyed the food. The service was good and the dining room comfortable.

We went to this Indian Cuisine restaurant prior to a performance at the local theatre. The food was excellent. We had the Chicken Coconut Curry and Veggie samosas. Besides all the authentic Indian dishes, Saffron offers Pizza, pasta and burgers. There were many pick up orders for pizza and other items at the front counter during our visit. Service was... More

We have eaten in and taken out of this restaurant for several months now and love it. The take out portions are much larger than eat in but all is great. I love the curry coconut chicken.

This restaurant located at the back of the Trail Bay plaza has to be experinced. Even though it specializes in authentic Indian dishes, the fare is truly multicultral. One can have one of their succulent burgers, or a gluten free thin dough pizza, or one of their truly delicious pastas. The variety of the Indian dishes is great. Everything is... More

Great East Indian food. The service is also really good. They do have a varied menu if everyone in your group doesn't like Indian food you can get pizza or other Canadian dishes.

This is the best Indian Takka I've had in a restaurant in BC. If you want excellent horsd'oeuvres (pre dinner snacks) and a filling elegant main dish with many choices of drinks this is a good spot. Beautiful space with pleasant staff and genuine Indian cuisine. Burgers available for folks if preferred.

First, be sure to tell them how spicy you like it or they'll assume "whitey food". We always order the Indian dishes but there are lots of other choices on the menu. The service is fast and friendly and atmosphere casual and accepting if you are dining alone.

After having superb curry's on the Island both at Parksville and Nanaimo, I was lamenting the fact that there was not anywhere good on the coast, unless we take the ferry to Powell River. :-(. Was recommended to try Saffron. We will not return as the food was poor, the cost high for portion size, cheap mass produced Nan bread.... More

We had Saffron deliver a tasty selection of Indian dishes to our Inn on the advice of the Owner and we weren't disappointed; the food was hot, fabulous and delivered promptly. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
