    The lunch menu $ 9.90 (main, salad and soft drink) was good. I bought the dessert (3 pieces of Baklava for $7) they are very small in size and with no crushed nuts.

    First time trying Persian food and it was fresh and delicious. The lunch specials are great value for money. Service was excellent. We will be back.

    Sunday lunch, I really felt like Persian food and our normal go-to restaurant closed as a result of COVID. So I went about searching for a new Persian restaurant for us to get our fix. What a find 'Taste of Saffron' was. A little out of the way for us, but so worth the drive. Authentic flavours, generous portions and friendly service. Taste of Saffron is an absolute little gem and with BYO (there's a bottle shop just across the road), the generous serves and the incredibly reasonable prices, you will leave feeling, very full, completed satisfied and with change in your pocket. Give this little ripper a go, you won't be sorry.

    Very enjoyable - good food & service. They had a function so did not offer us dessert as they had run out of everything, which was a bit disappointing, but the rest of the food was good. BYO was great for our group. Would recommend and will return :)

    Really enjoyed the meat dishes. Spacious dining space. Not sure how to get the attention of the waitstaff though. I asked for a takeaway container and the staff member never came back.

    Although can be a little noisy due to the interior, the food and service is always outstanding. I especially love the lamb, saffron rice is beautifully cooked. There's lovely eggplant, okra, and other dishes for vegetarians.

    We were meeting our Korean friend and I was looking for a Korean restaurant in Greenslopes. i checked out the 'taste' menu and saw rice was an important part of their menu. The five of us really enjoyed our lunch. Great food and service. A gem!

    We loved the delicious food & will definitely come back. However We were expecting a children’s menu & that wasn’t available, that would be good to know in advance.

    What a gem!! Very surprised by this amazing restaurant, especially the flavour of food, Had lamb stew and lamb kebab, both really nice and render, we also order grilled chicken ( supposed to be chicken wings) it was a high light of all meal, aust try, hummus is very smooth and rich, very food consistency as well. IT was a bit quiet when we arrived, there is only few staff to look after whole restaurant, so it made a small issue which is a bit lack of customer service, but under the covid circumstances that's fair, DEFINITELY WILL VISIT again .

    Well presented food, very authentic local eatery. Decor is nothing fancy but the food is great and very generous portions. They also have a small shop

    Not just another kebab shop! Huge portions of fresh, delicious food served in combinations and dishes I'd not seen before. Options for vegetarians and meat eaters at bargain prices - three people, two starters and three mains = way more fantastic food than we could eat, for $80. The setting may be basic but the magic is in the feast on offer. Highly recommended as neighbourhood gem, cheap eats and first date fun!
