First time we had in Saffron last month it was so delicious and tasted like home food. We ordered Briyani and Lamb curry. We felt like Briyani is the best in Hobart. We enjoyed the dinner......

A fantastic menu selection, attentive service and tasty food.. a great option if you want to have a less expensive night out near the wharf. Approx $75 for 2 ppl. Not groundbreaking but worth a visit.
