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.

“Wow! The best food on our trip!”
Reviewed 13 June 2014

After eating Turkish and Greek food for almost six weeks, we were definitely in the mood for something different. Saffron was ideally located not far from our hotel, and we were able to get in for an early dinner one night. We have had Indian food all over the world – literally, from Tasmania to Ireland – but the meal we had at Saffron was truly the best we have ever had. Their chicken tikka was so incredibly tender that we could cut it with a fork, and their prawn khorma was exceptional. In fact, their vegetable pakoras were so generous that we had to take some home with us (to make a great breakfast!) The proprietor is a very nice man, and his entire staff took really good care of us. We will definitely return to Rodos one day, as we are dreaming about their chicken tikka!

“Indian gem”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

Very good food, well presented, in generous quantities. We were asked about the level of spiciness we required individually, so that none of the dishes would be hotter than we could cope with. The chef is from the Indian subcontinent and was obviously experienced and talented. Our party of four could not finish the two starters we ordered. The main dishes were also quite large. We were fortunate enough to meet the owner and his daughter, and were impressed by their commitment to authentic Indian food. The premises were clean, bright and welcoming. I would recommend this restaurant unreservedly for those who like hot Indian food.

“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!!
