“A definitely hidden gem”
Review of Saffron - CLOSED

Saffron
Cuisines: Persian
Restaurant details
Reviewed 17 June 2012

We came to this restaurant out of curiosity about Persian food and certainly were not disappointed. It turns out Persian food is extremely tasty - this place needs to promote itself more! Most of us had the Kashke Bademjan starter and then a variety of mains which were all deliciously rich and fragrant, especially served with the saffron rice. The service was excellent and very welcoming and the prices were very reasonable indeed (£3 a starter with bread and between £7 - £10 for a main, rice included). We will definitely will go back here and I hope more venture in to taste the dishes on offer.

Yes everyone who knows London Road knows the Turkish and Chinese food to be had is tasty and reliable. But this place offers something a bit different and is worth a try. Not sure it has really taken off yet despite an initial good review in the Sheffield Star. On the night we went in business was mainly by the look of it friends and compatriots calling in for food to take home. We had delicious starters of stuffed vine leaves (fresh and savoury, not tinned) and a kind of aubergine dip. For mains the choices are meat on a skewer variations or slow cooked food. From the latter I had a really nice lamb and spinach dish nicely flavoured with herbs and a huge plate of saffron rice. Bring your own wine policy adds to the incredibly good value on offer.
