We had a wonderful meal at The Saffron last night. We studied the menu over a cold tap beer and a nice glass of red wine (can also BYO for $5 corkage) and nibbled on a large plate of excellent light papadums with a mint yoghurt for dipping. We ordered the Punjabi goat curry and the Vegetarian Saagwala. I was... More

Saffron is strategically located at the harbour with great views of Tasmanian boats at the seafront. Interior is well designed too. Service was great and food was delicious! Would highly recommend this restaurant! :)

Good choice of food, well presented and very tasty. It was helpful to have the"heat" ratings on the menu and the staff were very helpful when questioned about the ingredients. The window tables have a good view of the port. Friendly service and good Indian food - if we lived here, it would definitely be our go-to Indian restaurant.

Had a lovely time dining at The Saffron. Yummy food, warm staff, situated at the corner of hunter street. If you are scouting for Indian food, this is the place to be. The owner is a gentleman. Love to visit again

The food was excellent - very tasty, lots of variety to choose from. Great service and a lovely location near the harbour. Clean and nicely decorated surroundings. Good for couples or groups as there are plenty of tables and room to move. Good prices.

The Saffron is located at the edge of The wharf and the view is magnificent, as is the food. My pakora entree was beautifully presented with mint and tamarind sauce decorating the platter. Each piece was perfectly cooked and flavoured. For mains, I had a lamb biryani and aloo gobi. I made a mistake with that order, as it needed... More

The flavours were startlingly good and we were asked regarding the degree of heat which suited us (middle range). The view of the waterfront enhanced the dinner. Service was attentive but unobtrusive.
