Great menu, lots of choices! Saffron Sky offers very delicious Med/Greek food in a casual/kid-friendly atmosphere at a very reasonable price. The portions were generous and everything was tasty. I had mixed grill kabobs...chicken, lamb, beef. All were moist and delicious. The hummus was wonderful and served with beautiful presentation. The falafel was amazing. My husband had kafta and was equally impressed. No alcoholic beverages are served and no evidence of BYOB. I will definitely be back!

I read a review of this restaurant in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, and liking Mediterranean food, my husband and I set out to have dinner there a few months ago.

Although near the intersection of two well-known Fort Worth streets (Bryant Irvin and Camp Bowie), you have to know that it's tucked away in a shopping strip just a block south of Camp Bowie. One we found it, we decided it was well worth the search.

Browsing the menu, we found a variety of items we wanted to try. The prices are so reasonable that we decided to order different things and share them. We sampled the hummus, the tabouli, the gyros, the farfala, lamb kabob, and the stuffed grape leaves with lamb. Everything we had was delicious -- just as delicious, if not more so, as the other Med restaurants in Fort Worth, only not as pricey.

We have since visited SK on two other occasions. We sampled the lentil and chicken vegetable soups and were not disappointed. We also tried -- for the first time - the Baba Ganouche, which is much like hummus, but made with eggplant. We liked the richer, smokier taste of the BG, and are trying to duplicate the recipe at home to enjoy!

On our third visit, we noticed they had implemented lunch specials at reasonable prices. We can only hope they do a great business at lunch, too.

The atmosphere? It's pleasant with the ubiquitous med art one might expect, but it's quite peaceful and calm. Service is attentive, but not overly bothersome.

All-in-all, a great place to experience Mediterranean food at decent prices, so try one of everything! We will be back, and invite others to try Saffron Sky for something different in Fort Worth dining. Best of luck to our friends at Saffron Sky!

We were lucky enough to go there during opening week about a month ago. The food was excellent and to top it all also free!

We'll they got us hooked! We've been back on 3 occasions and the food is consistently good. Last time we were there we saw a few groups bring their own wine, which was served in the wine glasses they provide. Now, that's a great deal.

The atmosphere is getting better and the bathrooms are very nice and spotless.

Since Hedary's quit having a buffet, I was THRILLED to find Saffron Sky. The food is soooo good, very close to Hedary's in quality, without spending the big bucks! I ordered EVERYTHINGI wanted and that was ALOT, and it was under $25! Get the word out so they stay open! Can't figure out their hours yet...Closed Monday and Sunday I guess. I can't say enough positive things about this new tasty place to get your Mediterranean on!
