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.

My wife I and first visited Rhodes last year from the UK as we were planning a destination Indian wedding. One thing an Indian wedding had to have was authentic Indian food so we searched for a restaurant to cater for us. We stumbled upon Saffron who had at the time been open for 3 days. We were met by the very down to earth manager of Saffron, Mr George Pahos, who shared stories of his life with us. He then introduced us to his chefs who had come from India.

Everything seemed promising and then we tried the food. Without a doubt we knew instantly that Saffron were the only restaurant we wanted to cater for our big Indian wedding. The food was bursting with the flavours that can only be created by authentic chefs. We knew none of our guests would be disappointed. This was to be Saffron’s first wedding catering contract, and that for an Indian wedding in Rhodes. Another first for Saffron was that we asked them to cater for us at Kallithea Springs, the venue of our wedding (June 2014).

Throughout the year George kept in constant communication with us and he went above and beyond by communicating with our wedding planner at the venue to ensure between them they have everything ready for the special day.

George was so kind to us that he even recommended a photographer, with Indian wedding experience (who we eventually booked). He even surprised us by bringing mixed pakoras for our guests on our Henna party before the wedding day.

It is a testament to George and his team that every one of our 100 Indian guests absolutely loved Saffron’s food. It goes to show how authentic it was and it made our wedding day that much more special.

My wife and I will be planning to go back to Rhodes and our first stop will be Saffron.
In summary if you’re looking for authentic Indian food, cooked by authentic chefs from India, then there’s no better place in the whole of Rhodes than Saffron. Furthermore speaking to George will be an absolute treat should you get a chance. We would like to thank him for everything he did for us.

Absolutely wonderful food, great atmosphere, and a very charming set of staff who were perfectly attentive when necessary.

It's hard to find a genuine and authentic curry house in Europe. Thankfully this more than lived up to expectations having read some of the other reviews on here. Highly recommended!

Don't be afraid to try the house wine. It's actually very high quality and great value for money!!

The best indian restaurant in Rhodos Island. I loved popodom and the two complimentary sauces they served while you are looking at the menu. Best of all you can choose your spice level. Friendly service too.
