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

Happy the group had a good vacation - glad they are back! Another great meal as expected. Freshly prepared, beautifully seasoned, delicious flavours, good portions, more than friendly service. Always enjoy eating at a place where there is passion for good food and service. Pad Thai, pork special, and bread pudding all amazing. What other restaurant can turn bread pudding... More

We went here for dinner. It's a small locally owned and operated place. The items on the menu are creative and varied and all made in-house. I had the butter chicken and my husband had the African peanut stew. I mentioned that I usually have found butter chicken to be bland. The owner/waitress said they could add a chilli to... More

Visited the Resturant for dinner, the staff were wonderful and the food was great. I couldn't believe that such a variety of food can be cooked in the same kitchen and it will all be good but it was all great. We had Indian, Trinidadian, Lebanese and Mexican food ordered and it was all great. Call before you go. Unfortunately,... More

Missed eating here for a while and it was good to get back. Pad Thai and Mexican chicken stew, chai tea, and carrot cake for dessert ( at home later - too full after dinner). As usual the food was expertly prepared, beautifully seasoned, and attended looking great. Full of flavor - a delicious meal. Pictures are attached. Thank again... More
