Having enjoyed a beautiful meal at Saffron in Manuka some time ago, we thought we would give the Kingston branch a try. Our meals had well balanced spices and nice crunchy salads and crispy potatoes, but the chicken was a little dry and the lamb a bit sheepy. Not sure if it was an off-night but we were told quite a few things that had taken our fancy on the menu were not available, which was rather a shame and perhaps we would have gone elsewhere had we known that. Hot chocolate for dessert was delicious though. Probably the only good one I have had in the last 15 years. (The last was in the now closed Blues Cafe in Katoomba. I still remember if fondly!). Service a bit transient as usual but the guy in charge pushed it along fairly regularly which kept it within reasonable bounds.
