  • We had an absolutely great meal in the New Saffron tonight. It is fair to say that we enjoyed every last bit and the owner and staff were both efficient and attentive. Meal was fresh, fragrant and not greasy, obviously cooked fresh to order and went out of there way to get us exactly what we wanted. Honestly could not fault a single thing.
