Saffron's chimichanga is one of those amazing meals that happens too seldom. A huge portion (good for 2 people) full of veggies and chicken covered in a wonderfully flavoured sauce. Side soup was excellent - again fresh an flavorful. Chai tea on the side to top things off. Love this place! Will post pictures later!

Food was nicely prepared, but no ambience. It felt crowded, due to size and layout. Good for a change of pace, but not spectacular.

Saffron is by far the best restaurant in the area. Every single item on the menu is delicious and their daily specials are always a hit. The staff is friendly and get to know their regular customers by name. The dining area is small so reservations are a good idea, believe me you will be glad you made them and... More

I always try to have something different from Saffron, and am never disappointed! Their relatively small menu never gets stale thanks to their daily features. Ordering the daily soup is also a must! Cannot say too much about the dine-in experience as we always do take-out due to their lack of a liquor licence. Call early for take-out as they... More

Have eaten in this small, family run restaurant a few times and have always enjoyed the service, the meal, desert, atmosphere and is very reasonably priced.

We are always welcomed by cheerful Jen and the service is prompt and professional in this casual restaurant. Good, healthy meals made with quality ingredients. Always good! I especially love the falafel and homemade soups.

We keep coming back because the food and service is consistently excellent! The soup was hot (both ways) and flavorful. The seasoned patties and rice were both a new taste sensation - never tasted this pattern before, and it a good surprise! Thanks again (as always) for a great meal!

Great menu variety. Excellent service. Make reservations in advance or call ahead for takeout. Specials are posted for each day on their website. Service and food is always consistently excellent. They have the nicest private patio in town. The menu is from all over the world and it's quite a different experience from brunch to dinner.
