Description: Since our opening on June 2, 2013, our policy has been to serve freshly cooked, authentic Indian food to all our customers according to their individual tastes. That means they can request the full range of seasoning, from mild to very spicy, for all the dishes we serve. For those who tend to avoid Indian food because of its spiciness, they now have the chance to enjoy the delicate flavors of Indian cuisine without worry.

Visited saffron on a few occasions during the past summer and the reason was me being a big fan of spicy food and Indian being one of my favorite cuisines. Found the place to be clean well run and with excellent service George the owner is a pleasant guy that makes you feel welcome and he has clearly done a good job with bringing a quality Indian restaurant to a town that didn't have one and needed one in my opinion. Only thing I could fault saffron was I found the level of heat the waiters ask you if you want one to five if I remember correct needs a bit if work as some of us got milder and others hotter than expected.

“Mmmm, curry!”
Reviewed December 11, 2013

We visited Saffron at the end of October. Hailing from Manchester where curries are a part of life we were intrigued to see how an Indian restaurant in Greece would compare, and we weren't disappointed. We started with a delicious tandoori chicken starter to share and then onto the main courses. I have to say the lamb madras was exceptional and cooked to perfection. I went for the hottest option and was a little worried it may have been too spicy, it wasn't, it was bloody marvelous! The vegetarian curry with chick peas was just as good, so tasty. Both starter and main course were generous portions. The owner told us they will be open in the evenings Thurs-Sun all winter, we wish them good luck and every time we visit from Tilos we will endeavour to visit your lovely restaurant. Please support them, we need a decent curry house on Rhodes! Kali tichi Saffron.

“My favourite restaurant!”
Reviewed November 26, 2013 via mobile

Me and a friend were in Rhodes in 3 weeks in June-July. And we ate at saffron 10 out of 21 days. If you like Indian food, and want the best of the best, visit SAFFRON. If I'm coming back to Rhodes some time, I'll definitely come back to the restaurant. The owner of the restaurant is also very kind to the visitors, and you will feel very comfortable and welcomed while staying at SAFFRON.

Dear Trevor,

Thank you for visiting SAFFRON and trying our Sunday buffet, and I am grateful for your kind complement and information which I need to correct one little mistake about the children fee which is 10 Euro and not 12, other than that your other infos were spot on.

Thank you again and looking forward to your next visit.
