I'm a regular at Saffran, and always have the same thing; the saffran chicken :) All of my visits are for lunch and it is always very busy during that time, because it is a popular place to eat at, so they are definitely doing something right.

Yesterday, I ordered a take out from them, a restaurant in Hafnarfjörður. Got a message saying the food would be ready at x. So I got there 3 minutes before paid and sat down to wait for my food. As I sit down I see a takeout box being set under the heat lamps, and soon after a server checks... More

Our hotel recommended this restaurant and we're glad we went. The restaurant was clean and the service was quick. After traveling all over Iceland for 9 days, we were looking for a decent meal that didn't cost an arm and a leg. Saffron fit the bill to a "T". My wife and I ordered the tandoori chicken with brown rice,... More

We've been to Saffran on a regular basis since June and always got really quick service. The food, however, is always good. We've had mainly pizza and they've been very nicely served. Healthy ingredients, not too oily (as in many other establishments) and crisp base. Perfect! Would definitely go back/recommend.

I used to go there alot but havent gone for years. I was surprised to see the staff serving costumers with mouth tobacco and wearing tank tops while cooking. Sorry, thats just plain disgusting and therefor I did not enjoy my African pizza. But it tastes good so you still got that going for you.
