Been multiple meals since the last posting, all great. The chimichanga was fantastic, and more than enough for two. Great flavours, nicely presented, excellent chai tea, and great device as usual.

When I eat here, I always leave full and happy. The service is wonderful. Jenn's spirited food descriptions are worth the visit. You can tell she loves the food they sell. The food is fresh and full of flavor. Excellent value for the quality, quantity and service.

Can't believe we haven't tried Saffron before! Had our first take-out from this great little place tonight, the Moroccan Chicken and Vegetables and the Trinidadian Chick Pea Doubles. Delicious - hit it bang on.. Huge portions with some leftovers! We will be back for take-out again or to try dining in the restaurant some time.

Saffron is a must visit for our friends and family. Every dish is special and ranges from Caribbean fare, to Asian to middle eastern.. Everything is spiced just right. You are sure to leave satisfied.

This is a great little spot. Food has never disappointed. The selections of the world and flavours are #1 and always seem to have some to take home for lunch the next day. Love going out back to the patio in the summer and relaxing with friends and family.

Have been here with family and friends and order-to-go whenever passing through Port Elgin. Lovely quiet and shaded patio in the back in the warmer months and cosy little restaurant indoors in the cold months. Generous portions and have tried every dish and love them all … Mexican Beef Brisket Wrap, Morrocan Chicken with Couscous, Pad Thai, Butter Chicken, Green... More

This very unassuming quiet little restaurant hides a kitchen that assaults your tastebuds with a pow of flavour and a smack of OMG! No other restaurant gives more flavour for $ than any other in town! The others should be quaking in their boots, if this placed desired to go bigger, and we were assured they wouldn't have the energy,... More
