    A great dining experience , as always. I have dined there many times and is the first place I take friends and visitors to Tassie for a first class meal. Cannot, nor choose to fault it. Reasonable prices for good quality food. I would recommend it to anyone who likes Indian style food.

    Food was fabulous and that really is the major point here. The staff seemed a litle inexperienced and made a few minor errors. I'd booked a table for four people but they sat us at a table for 7. When we asked to be moved to a four next to the window they obliged but the view was really carpark rather than bay. We started with what was supposed to be a local sparkling rose but was a sparkling chardonnay not rose. The poor waitress had no idea what we were talking about! I dont think she was a drinker . The food however was terrific . We had mixed vegetable entree with a plate of fried fishand fried prawns which were enjoyable without being exceptional. Our mains were butter chicken , chennai prawns saag paneer and lamb korma. All of these were aromatic and highly flavoursome. The chennai was rated ???????????????? and was of our party was concerned but , although quite hot , the flavours were excellent and she ate some without a problem . We avoided thvindaloo

    Friendly wait staff and very good curry. I’ve tries two other Indian restaurants in Hobart and this was clearly the best. Could have a larger selection of wine to buy by the glass.

    Pleasant setting, attentive and helpful service and very good food. The food is sensitively spiced to bring out the full flavours. Saffron is a delightful part of waterfront dining in Hobart. It is definitely my favourite Indian restaurant in Hobart.

    This is without a doubt the best Indian Restaurant in Hobart. I have dined there many times and have taken friends from Tasmania, mainland Australia and from overseas. The food is excellent, as well as the service,decor and value for money. I would highly recommend it to anyone who likes Indian food. John G

How to get to the restaurant

15 Hunter St, 7000, Hobart (TAS), Australia

About the restaurant

Spicier than a spice girl!

Located at the gateway to Hobart, the Saffron overlooks the Sullivans cove, a picturesque and historic waterfront. This is where you will find a combo of traditional and authentic dishes, inspired from North Indian and Kashmiri regions.

Take the fam and start by ordering as many entrees as your heart's desire, there is plenty to pick from. The menu also offers a unique variety of tandoor and curry dishes, if there's any room left after the entree try the malabar curry. To complete your experience, grab a side of biryanis rice and the garlic naan is always a must!

Best dish: Nawabi Korma
