I went there quite a lot of times and never been disappointed. The place is very cosy. If it's good weather try to book on the terrace. The view on the golf course is beautiful and restful. The food is always very good. With new specials everytime. Staff is professional and very helpful. A must go in Pretoria.

We celebrated our anniversary at Blu saffron. Beautiful view over golf course. We booked a table outside. It was a Perfect summer evening. Food was excellent! Starters: Highly recommend prawn tempura. Fish cakes tasty, almost enough as a meal on its own. Duck was so flavourful. Crispy on outside, tender inside. We did not order dessert as we didnt have...

Yes man! That's what a restaurant is supposed to be. Great ambiance! We were a group of 11 in a private room, the service was top notch, the menu was great offering a wide variety of dishes which were presented well and tasted as good as they looked. We had a vegan in our group for who we made arrangements... More

We had a business dinner with a colleague and friend, and sat outside on the terrace. The service was excellent, as was the food, and with the mild temperature of the evening, it was really lovely sitting outside. The the reason for only giving a four-rating, is that the only downside, was the smoking around us. We had to walk... More

This must rate among the best, if not the very best, restaurants in Pretoria. Interesting menu with old favourites such as springbok carpaccio, but the specials presented with passion and detail are what makes the experience memorable. On the evening I chose a spicy calamari and chorizo starter (quite hot, steer away if you don't like spicy food) and a... More

We took visitors from Namibia, to Blu Saffron. What a night to remember. Warm friendly greetings. Great service. But the food? Outstanding. I have no other words. Mushroom and biltong soup. Unbelievable. Best I have ever had. The braised short rib was beautifully done. Spiced just right and slow cooked to perfection. Excellent. Well done.

Outdoor seating overlooking the golf course is s wonderful at sunset. Very comfortable atmosphere. Service in s outstanding. The gentleman describing the food had our mouths watering. The cream of mushroom soup with biltong is a signature dish--possibly the best soup I have ever eaten. Prawns were excellent. Beef short rib was tasty but a little spicy. Highly recommend eating...
