Saffron is probably the best place in Arrowtown, but that comes at a cost. The food is certainly up to it - try the trio of curries, for example. The atmosphere is welcoming and warm; staff are cheerful and know their stuff. If there's the tiniest gripe it would be that the waiter was just a bit inclined to engage in informal repartee. In other words, he was "bistro", but the place was "restaurant". I'd definitely go again and I'd recommend others too. But the 5th star would await a slightly more restrained house style in keeping with the price. Or go bistro and shave some $$ .. !
