My husband and I were regular customers of Saffron in Manuka and we were very happy. However, once we tried their Kingston branch we fell in love. Food, service and the spacious place made it far better than the Manuka one especially for parents with a pram.

We love the Sayyadiyyah, the Kafta and the appetizers are yummy.

We are regular customers now.

We were given to believe this was one of the local cuisine highlights, in an area with some stunning restaurants and cafes. It wasn't! The wine list was average, the service indifferent, the menu good, but not stunning, and we left before dessert. Seating is more suited to a breakfast/lunch cafe than a dinner experience. Perhaps we should have been in a bigger group and the ambience would have been dfelivered by the diners rather than the room. Not much more to say but it delivered value for money, but we would have (and heve done) paid more for a better meal. Not a place we will hurry back to, given the quality of cafes and restaurants that surround it. A real shame and a wasted opportunity.

Having enjoyed the $39 banquet with colleagues, I took my wife for dinner later the same week. We were not in anyway disappointed. We had the sea food platter for two. Quality seafood and the variety in cooking (deep fry, bar b que and oven roasted) made for a great culinary experience.
I should also mention the modern decor and excellent and knowledgeable table service.

Quite good food but really expensive. The wait staff can only carry 2 plates or 2 glasses in once. That makes the service really slow when you are 6! And when you are nearly finished they are sort of kicking you out!

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.
