Description: Saffron Restaurant DunoonNewly Launched Saffron Dunoon sits centrally on Argyll Street and is a chic modern restaurant that offers a range of dining options in an environment that is quoted as being 'that little bit special'.The restaurant has the feel of an upmarket city bistro offering a premium selection of dine-in and takeaway dishes on an Indian and Far Eastern theme. The first half of the menu features a mouth-watering selection of Far Eastern Favourites from Sweet and Sour to Oyster Sauce and Thai Curry, every dish has been carefully selected.Whilst on the other half of the menu the chefs have created a tantalizing selection of Indian Cuisine but with the lighter 'Saffron Twist' that this restaurant is renowned for. The restaurant operates a very popular Two-course lunch special at £7.95 And as well as the a la carte menu for lunch and dinner. Puddings are all home-made and the selection is displayed on the dessert board. Saffron also offer a wide range of their exquisite Indian & Far Eastern dishes as part of their Takeaway Menu Service, with a Set Meal for 2 available at £20.90 (Delivery service extra).

Another great weekend in Dunooon with perfect weather, and crowned with another fabulous meal at this restaurant.

We managed to book a table for the same evening (the last table) and arrived to a busy restaurant.

We ordered a Chefs Platter to start which had a nice selection of asian starters and was more than ample for sharing.We followed this with a fillet of duck that arrived with the most delicious cherry sauce. Would have loved to have ordered a pudding but couldn't fit one in.

Thouroughly enjoyed our evening and have decided it's probably worth the 60 mile round trip just to come down for the great setting, fab food and the service.........can't wait for our next trip to Dunoon and The Cinnamon Rooms.

Very attentive, friendly staff but the food resembled that from a takeaway. Tasty enough, but close your eyes and you'll know what I mean!

Went for dinner tonight and we had the pre theatre menu. I had Thai Green Curry and it was out of this world. It is advertised as "Hot" but I asked for it to be extra hot. When it came it was absolutely perfect.

As always the food and staff are spot on. Ive never been disappointed anytime ive dined here (and im fussy when it comes to eating out).

However as someone who loves his grub, I cannot believe the bangladesh has jumped to dunoons number 1 and most astonishing, is Rio's at number 4.

Cinnamon rooms and Chatters are 2 really good dining establishments,which I would happily recommend to anyone visiting Dunoon

Had dinner there tonight, and the choice of food on the menu was amazing! Very attentive and very friendly staff, and all the food, as always, was well cooked and tasty. Highly recommend the Thai dishes, and the desserts! Never ever had a bad experience in this restaruant. Well done to all the staff, and not forgetting the unseen kitchen staff :-)
