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

I went to dinner with 6 friends on a Tuesday night. We decided to keep life simple and opt for the Deluxe Banquet. Perhaps this was our mistake. The starting course with the dips was ok, being quite standard middle eastern, however the main course meat kebabs were quite shockingly bad...overcooked to the point of being dry and difficult to...

This restaurant deserves to be rated much higher. Really lovely authentic Moroccan food. I ordered the fish and the chicken tagine and they were both delicous. I ordered takeaway and it was really nice and fresh but the decor is really nice so probably a good place to eat in. Highly recommend

I would like to be able to give 4.5 points for this restaurant, because it was excellent in many ways with some minor criticisms. We went on a Saturday night and it was very busy and quite noisy (our minor criticism). The food was very good. We shared entrees of Lebanese (?) sausages and falafal, both were excellent with excellent... More

On an evening when a number of restaurants in the area are closed Mezza was a welcome place to eat a good meal. Water was quickly served while we considered our menu. We only needed a light meal and the mince puffs and Greek salad just "hit the spot"!! Jamaican Mocktail certainly was welcome on this hot evening in Canberra.... More
