Cold food, poor taste, chewy rotis/ naans - sorry Saffron you are a restaurant a good view or service alone isnt... More

I visited this place on 26th January 2017 and I must say it was a dine out disaster. I ordered a mutton biryani for myself with Raita and Coke and I must say - the WORST biryani I have ever had. It was bland and cold. Nevertheless, as I was hungry I did not make much fuss about it. When... More

On arrival we found the table cloth dirty and after being moved to another table found that to be even worse. The waiter must have found us tricky but was prepared to turn to turn the cloth over. This was comic but only showed that the stains had gone right through. This is the point at which we thought about... More

We went there in a group. The service is slow. The food is pretty average and very spicy. Soups were a waste. Though you can visit it for great ambience and decor but the food...well its not so good

Had lunch at this restaurant on the rooftop of the beautiful haveli. The spaghetti is good. Not too pricey. View of street life is interesting. Fort view is nice too.

If you're travelling to Jaisalmer, a visit to Saffron should be compulsory. Located of the roof of the Hotel Nachana Haveli you don't need to be a guest of the hotel to use the restaurant and in fact when we stayed there the restaurant was made up from a mix of guests and other visitors. They have a wide range... More

Great Italian dishes and tandoori was amazing. The aura of the restaurant was nice and quiet for a relaxing dinner on a rooftop.
