Description: Since our opening on June 2, 2013, our policy has been to serve freshly cooked, authentic Indian food to all our customers according to their individual tastes. That means they can request the full range of seasoning, from mild to very spicy, for all the dishes we serve. For those who tend to avoid Indian food because of its spiciness, they now have the chance to enjoy the delicate flavors of Indian cuisine without worry.

“Indian In Greece Perfect”
Reviewed 7 June 2014 via mobile

Absolute delight to eat here absolutely gorgeous food red hot and fresh!
Persuaded the waitress to have a word with the owner about doing chips on the menu.

Loved the fact no one was stood at the door pulling you in with the 'hey you look hungry and thirsty' line.

Th saffron has 5 stars and I wouldn't dispute this one bit perfect service perfect food perfect timing.

I would recommend this to anyone one of Rhodes town hidden gems!!

“Lovely food, lovely owners!”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

We like different kinds of food and we were delighted when we heard that there is a proper indian restaurant in the island! Although it exists rather long time, we didnt know at all! We first went there a Sunday where they have a buffet for 16 euros something i think. The food was lovely! The buffet doesnt have a massive variety of food but those they have are simple delicious! Nice main courses, starters, perfect indian bread they bring you fresh made, everything was lovely. And the owners-staff are simply great! The first time we went we met the niece of the owner i think she was lovely, the same the next time with the owner and his daughter! In general a great place to go for a meal when you want to try something different and really tasty! Prices are fine also

“Awesome Indian food outside india”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

It was a real delight to find such a good indian taste outside of India. I have been to many indian restaurents in europe but none matched with the standards of taste that we get in india, except this restaurent. Saffron served us with the indian taste that I was missing since I came to Europe. Thank you Saffron. Their hospitality was also very good. I strongly recommend this restaurent to anyone who desires Indian food in Rhodes.

“Great Indian Food and Friendly Service”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

We saw this place after passing by it the day before going to another restaurant on the same street. The service is very friendly and prompt. The owner George came by several times to make sure we're doing ok and also chatted a bit about food and travel. We even got free dessert as it was the one-year anniversary of the restaurant.

We are experienced with Indian food and we found the food here to be quite tasty. The ingredients are fresh and authentic and spiciness level can be cook to your taste. We had the tandoori chicken wings and the butter chicken with naan and Saffron rice. The chicken was tender and juicy and the use of spices was just enough without overwhelming the food.

In a town full of western food and various Green cuisine, Saffron provides a nice change of pace. The owner really cares about his food and his customers, a rarity in a town that caters to tourists who come and go. Prices are also very reasonable. Give it a try!
