Saffron
Cuisines: Middle Eastern
Description: The finest Middle Eastern dishes have been brought together on a single menu. As Selected by our own Syrian master chef - Adnan. His knowledge of traditional and Mediterranean dishes, from the Lebanon to morocco is second to none. A delicious and mouthwatering range of truly refined cuisine is on offer here. What Chef Adnan has to say; "In the saffron we offer middle eastern food. That is food from a number of countries, such as Syria, Lebanon, Egypt, Morocco and the Gulf area. All of which offer very unique ways of cooking, ingredients and combinations. If I were to suggest a dinner to someone unfamiliar with Middle Eastern food then I would begin with a Lebanese appetizer, to set the right idea for food to come, this would be a mixed mezzah. For a main,well the choice is so great, so for just a couple, then a chicken musaka from the lebanon. Perhaps a barkouk tajine, which is stewed leg of lamb with dried plums, sesame and almonds. Also we offer a huge choice in traditional non meat dishes, this makes our cuisine very popular with vegetarians We serve a large range of deserts and we will soon be introducing Moroccan sweets."

We enjoyed our evening meal, but one tip make sure you pre-book, we arrived at 7pm, we did not eat until 10pm as it was fully booked. Food was good, atmosphere great! Wine is very expensive in Egypt so drink spirits instead.

Having given my review of The Savoy Hotel (under Savoy) I said the restaurand distinguished itself by the amount of food left on the tables after end of course or leaving.
The Hotel replied that they were sorry that there was too much and would address that.

Hello !!!! it was left because it was pretty dire .... I had many issues at the Hotel as can be seen and would have attempted to tell Mr Geiger the manager but as we were standing by reception with two more he scuttle around us bolting for his office without any acknowledgement to his guests, with this attitude it is no wonder the place is getting bad reviews

After living in the Middle East for a couple of years, both myself and the wife really love Lebanese food.

Saffron at Soho Square did not disappoint, with great food, great service, great atmosphere and a fantastic memory of Middle Eastern cuisine.

We had Fatoush, Tabouleh, Houmous and Arabic Bread for starters, and had Lamb and Chicken kebabs for main and it was tasty, moist and fulfilling.

Price was very a reasonable £50 including a few drinks and coffee.

Well done Saffron and we'll be back.

Visited here for a meal with 3 friends and had a very poor experience. It took over 2 hours to get a table and our starters with no apologies for the extended wait (been told five more minutes so many times we lost count). If there had been more restaurants in Soho square we would have walked out, they finally seated us on our way out the door. The outside seating area they sat us in had no heating so we were all freezing as it was not particularly warm and we were all starving after being kept waiting.

When the food finally came it was cold and the chicken dishes were all dry, we finished our meal and left after telling the staff the meal was very poor. The meal was also very expensive for Egypt, really disappointing.
