“Great Mediterranean Flavours.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

A casual dinner with friends after a busy week for which we chose the banquet, washed down with some good wine from the very adequate wine list. The selection of dips was excellent, our favourites being the baba ganoush and the carrot dip. Crumbed mushrooms were voted top entrée by the group and all agreed the lamb cutlets & grilled chicken skewers were delicious. Staff were very friendly & remained patient when it became obvious that we were there for a long relaxed night.

“Birthday Dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2012

Saffron in Canberra was a lovely surprise. Downstairs to a modern and smart interior. Very good attentive wait staff and a super menu. Lots of great sounding dishes that tugged at my Mediterranean roots. The Lamb Cutlets were a stand out and everything elase was fab.
Would certainly return.

“Kingston Saffron”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2012

Service, ambiance, taste sensations, presentation, Saffron in Kingston has it all. Six of us on a Thursday night had the best banquet and best service and best night out. Great hummus, beet root dip, and mushrooms, kebabs, and everything that was presented at the $39 banquet. You won't be disappointed.

“Not as good as previous times”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2012

We have been to Saffron on 4 other occasions and even though it was good it was not up to the standards that we had previously experienced.

Service was good however the food was in my opinion average on this occasion.

However would probably not stop me from returning another time.

“Fantastic food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2012

Ate at the new Saffron restaurant in Kingston and was so delighted with the food and service that I have made it my number one choice for dinner when working in Canberra.

I recommend the Lamb Shanks and their bowl of fresh vegetables - and all relatively reasonable prices.
