Favourite lebanese style offerings, always freshly prepared and well sized. Menu has an unchanging quality but it is good to work through and taste again the old favourites

We had an absolutely delicious meal here, incorporating all our favourite Lebanese dishes in a banquet menu which was extremely reasonably priced. Guided by the delightful helpful Angela, we had a great night - we'll be back!

Whenever visiting Canberra a visit to Saffron is a must. The food is superb and the service wonderful. The eastern mediterannean flavours with that lovely hint of moroccan. You can go as inexpensive or as expensive as you like. A quick meal of sensational authenic dips to a lovely relaxing meal of several wonderful courses. The atmosphere is welcoming with... More

You would travel a fair way to eat here. Service was impeccable. Eastern mediterranean cuisine in a large space with great atmosphere. You can have a choice of banquets or wing it. We chose the dips, calamari, spiced crumbed mushrooms and Barak. The food was exceptional. We'll be back !

Have dined at Saffron periodically over the last 8 years and I continue to enjoy the delicious food and excellent service which never disappoints. The menu is a bit of a constant, which offers a guaranteed quality dining experience.

Overnight in Canberra and looking for something a bit different. Found Saffron Mezze House mentioned in the Concierge book and so pleased we booked. I had the Kafta skewers (3 good size) with rice, chat potatoes, rice and tabouli. Partner braved the Samkeh Harrah barramundi with a good chili kick. Both dishes were cooked to perfection. These were followed by... More
