This place has the perfect setting to have a private dinner for business or leisure with its private rooms. It is located in one of the old affluent place in Pretoria. The service of the team is above par with a smile all the time they serve you. The manager comes to the table to tell specials of the day and recommend what to eat if you are undecided. The food, WOW! Delicious and well prepared. The wine collection is also good and the wine is stored well. If you want private roon, better to book in advance. Will do it anytime.

A great setting, good scenery and atmosphere, and very good service. Perfect for romance or family functions. Although the food portions are slightly small, the quality is impressive.

Blu Saffron is one of our favorite higher end restaurants.
Service is good..with management or the head Maitre 'D
explaining the specials of the evening. He also came by
the table a couple of times to make sure all was well. Duck
was gone to perfection... sweet and sour kingkip was the special
of the night and my husband said it was prepared perfect.
Good wine list though a tad more expensive than other restaurants
for same wines. Overall..expensive, but well worth every rand spent.

Food was very disappointing.
Service was good and waitres very friendly but rushed when manager explained the menu, so we didn't feel at liberty to ask questions.
WAY overpriced, felt done in.
Fish and game was dry.
Nice atmosphere outside, so if we'd go again it would be to have drinks on the veranda.
We did send an email to management to raise our views, to which they did reply kindly so that does count for something! Still wouldn't go again.
