Believe the hype, this is the best food in port elgin. The place looks bad and feels like a cheap diner, yet this place is alway busy. If you want good food at good prices this is your place.

Saffron is a very welcome change in a town that previously offered very little besides burgers and sandwiches. I have tried the butter chicken, pad Thai, and chick pea doubles, and all were delicious! Prices are very reasonable and portions are huge. You won't find a more welcoming restaurant in Port Elgin -- the owners and staff are friendly, warm, and genuine. They know a lot about food and offer vegetarian and gluten-free options. I hope this place is here to stay!!!

I ate at this restaurant during day hours. The menu is international-inspired and the staff are friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. The green curry is to die for ! I do not recommend the Pad Thai however as it was somewhat bland and greasy. There was an apparent lack of two things : a licence to serve alcohol and they did not have soup on the menu . I was informed that they were however in the process of procuring a licence. If you are tired of the usual restaurant fare in the area, please check out Saffron !

We heard so much about the great food at this new restaurant in Port Elgin ; we happened to be driving by around supper time and decided to go in and have an early supper. We were not disappointed at all. The chicken curry dish as well as the butter chicken dish were both most delicious and very filling. We decided to have the dessert which happened to be a lemon yogurt pound cake and it was very good. Great choices on the menu as well as the specials. The atmosphere is very quaint. The staff were most pleasant and cheerful. Thank you for a most enjoyable meal and we will be back again.
