“Amazing authentic Indian food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2014

I am of Indian origin and i consider myself to be a connoisseur of Indian food. This place ticked the box on multiple levels including ambience, service and food. If you visit, try the beef short ribs. It's Jithin(Jay)'s signature dish. Slow cooked for 6 hours. only 5 -6 servings available per day. if you call to reserve, ask him to put one aside for you. All the other dishes are fantastic too.

“a great addition to dining in Victoria”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014

I live in Victoria, and know many of our good restaurants. My husband and I decided to try Saaz after a good review in a local food magazine. We thought the service and food were excellent. We shared a dosa, and a delicious dish with portabella mushrooms. Lovely fresh pita bread as well.
This is a great spot for locals, and for visitors. It is close to the waterfront, and inner harbour, as well as some interesting shops near Market Square. It has a good sized room that can be set up for small or large groups. It looks like a winner to me!

“Awesome Dosa”

I have enjoyed the cuisine offered at Saaz on numerous occasions. The food and service is consistently good. Manager and dosa chef Jay always ensures I'm well looked after. I wholeheartedly recommend this restaurant...Q

“Give this a try!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2014 via mobile

This restaurant is tucked away in a quiet corner but worth seeking out. A recent visit as one of a party of nine was a pleasure. At our request, our waiter chose dishes for us, happily answering our questions about unfamiliar foods. He was clearly passionate and knowledgeable about the foods he was sharing! Friendly staff, efficient service and absolutely delicious food will keep me coming back.

“A real taste of India.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2014

Called in to this restaurant this evening with 8 friends. We were seated right away and were looked after by a very nice young man named Jay. Rather than have 9 people try to choose dishes, we asked Jay to serve us some of his favourites. We tried appetizers of tiny brussels sprouts in a great spicy sauce and Jackfruit, which none of us had ever tried before. The main dishes were spicy, flavourful and really good. The service was great, we were asking questions about some of the foods and where they came from and Jay was most helpful. The restaurant itself is very nicely set up and comfortable and as the food and service was great, I would recommend it to anyone. Will go back for sure!!
