About Saffrons

Fine dining with an Indian accent! Using local produce where ever possible combined with the intense flavours of Indian spices resulting in dishes, meat, fish and vegetarian that are truly amazing.

Our chefs use cooking methods inspired from different regions of India; seafood recipes from Goa to richer dishes from Punjabi in the north. We utilize a clay oven, called a Tandoor, to retain the authenticity of such dishes as Naan bread and all Tandoories. Modern European techniques such as slow cooking, low temperature and sous-vide are used to perfect the blend of spices and quality of the product.

Dishes are presented simply in a modern European way, letting the food 'do the talking'. We call it 'Fine dining with an Indian accent'.

Absolutely superb food, undoubtedly the best Indian restaurant in Jersey, with a very talented chef. We had excellent service from our charming server, but be aware that there are long wait times between courses if you are having the tasting menu. Highly recommended.

Excellent service, attentive and friendly, food was sublime. The combination of flab ours was interesting and challenged the taster buds in a very good way.

Fabulous flavours, beautifully presented. Great service too. Just a shame about the ambience/decor, which is lacking style and atmosphere.

As ever the food was excellent. We are regulars and advocates of the restaurant. Saturday night was a bad night for the team though. Service was really poor. The staff did not know what food they were serving and we had to wait long periods of time between courses. This is something that we have never experienced before and was very disappointing as we had taken a group of friends with us.

Having dined at Saffrons a few years ago with my husband and been delighted, I brought my parents over this time to experience fine dining and good service. We booked well in advance citing vegan and vegetarian diets and even rang an hour before we arrived to check that we were expected. To our utter disappointment, our food took over an hour to arrive and it seemed that the kitchen was unprepared to cater to a vegan or vegetarian diet within a reasonable timeframe. Service was slow and indifferent with us having to fight for eye contact, the head waiter promised us the chef would come by but he never did, and we watched as other tables that were seated after us were serviced well before we were. Our hunger had nearly faded at the point that the food arrived (served with no apologies and a lot of excuses instead) and so whilst we ate the bulk of our food, we did ask at the end to pack a couple of small bits, only for one of the servers to admonish us like we were schoolchildren! Never again will I return. All I wanted was to show my parents who were visiting from India what I had enjoyed so much in 2015 - the warmth, great food and beautiful service that Saffrons represented to me - and I go away disappointed that none of those elements remain what they used to be. Overall, a poor dining experience.
