Saffron Lounge has left us the best impressions. Service, ambiance, and food were outstanding. The service was delightful and unmatched. Staff were very hospitable and accommodating. The atmosphere was very cozy, with nice design and intimate lighting. Delicious dishes too. Considering the quality, the price...is reasonable. Thanks for a lovely evening. I think we have found our new favorite Indian restaurant.More

We wish we had ordered from here before! We ordered garlic naan, a chicken tikka masala and chicken tikka karahi. Both dishes were very tasty with good quality chicken. I would have liked mine slightly spicier but I do love spicy food. The delivery service...was quick and the food hot. We appreciated the fact that the delivery containers were made of cardboard so environmentally friendly. We will order again.More

We visited Saffron for the first time and and was not at all disappointed . The food is good ,but definitely got room for improvement, since it's a fine diner. Service and ambience of the restaurant were top notch. Mr. Santosh is a real asset...to the restaurant. He was pro-active with his suggestions and was very friendly. Looking forward to visit you guys again . Thank you .More

Having read the high reviews, we came here with high expectations, but felt very let down. Service was slow and our waitress was very grumpy. But the food was the worst part of this. Some dishes were extremely salty, while others were incredibly bland -...very inconsistent overall. The food was so poor that it made me throw up - my first time in any restaurant. I'm glad to hear that most other people rate this place highly, but based on my experience I can't say the same. Personally would not recommend and will not return here - you're better off going to Saravana Bhavan or Signature instead if you want good Indian food in Doha!More

We came to katara by the metro during national celebration week to enjoy the activities, but unfortunately it started raining the moment we arrived. We decided to eat early dinner here. Service was ok, the waiters seemed tired but they did their best. We ordered...butter chicken and it was the best one i ever had here in Qatar. Vegetable berryani was good Nan bread was good too i tried the zaatar nan was good too We tried a meat dish recommended by the waiter but didn’t like it The mix sambosa was great too It was nice experienceMore
