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'.

Fantastic evening, we were looked after by a knowledgeable and attentive team. The food was great and the wine paired very well with the menu we enjoyed. Thanks again Laurentiu and the team!! We will be back... very flexible with the booking also, so thank you!

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.

Wonderful service and a superb meal, as always. We visit Jersey a few times every year and always finish our trip with a meal at Saffrons. It never lets us down. We feel very well looked after, particularly by the Maitre D. Can't wait to go back.

Amazing food, a vegetarians heaven!! I would recommend Saffrons to everyone as the service is so personal and there is nothing they won’t do to make the experience very special, everytime!! If you haven’t been, you’re are missing out on a true delight. Not just for vegetarians, lots of fish and meat dishes available that I’ve been told are equally tasty.

I was disappointed that there was an additional charge for wine when we had paid for the taster menu with wine. We understand there was a problem with staffing and the courses took longer but we spent over £800 for 6 of us which was a lot of money .we were topped up in between courses .i think we shouldn’t have been charged an extra £80

The food here is great. Fine dining Indian-style is quite unusual for a place this small. Service isn't especially fast, and some of the hotel guests don't appreciate what they are getting, but definitely going back.
