    very good cooking, delicate Indian food in compare with other Indian restaurant. The service is very good and the boss is very welcoming. If the serve is a bit bigger, it will be perfect because it tastes good.

    Cafe Saffron always has great quality food. It is consistent every time and the staff really care about making sure the food is to our liking and that we are happy. The Naan is awesome. Curries are always delicious. The lunch special was fabulous value for money.

    The three of us had Banquet #1. The food was excellent. Serving the 5 courses was perfectly timed (not rushed, not too slow) and the portion sizes ideal.

    food was ok, but we were seated next to a big party which was rather annoying, and we asked initially asked to move but told that they couldn't. 20 minutes later we were told that they could do, but at this stage we had already started eating and all i wanted to do was eat and.But I will return

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
