About the restaurant

Spice Things Up.We love when we discover a restaurant that feels like a local secret. That's just the case with Café Saffron in Ivanhoe. A neighbourhood gem, Café Saffron serves traditional, hearty Indian food. There's nothing garish or overstated about this place; it's all about simple food that speaks for itself.Whether we're in the mood for something mild or we want to rev things up with a hit of hot spice, Café Saffron offers plenty of choices. So what do the regulars love? The lamb dishes deserve a mention, as well as the spinach curry with paneer. Pair that curry with some saffron or basmati rice and garlic naan and you're in for a treat. Could Café Saffron in Ivanhoe become your new local favourite? We think there's a good chance. And we love that Cafe Saffron offers takeaway for those nights when we'd rather cosy up on the couch for dinner. Best dish: Spinach and paneer curry
