Excellent authentic Indian food. Very tasty and reasonably priced. A comprehensive menu catering to all preferences, makes this restaurant a very enjoyable experience. The location on the waterfront adds to the experience. The service was very friendly and attentive without being overbearing.

I am SO disappointed with this restaurant. After searching online for somewhere with mostly good feedback & a restaurant that delivers we placed a order here. After being told it was a hours wait to be delivered , we hesitated but wanted to try it out so went ahead with the order. Fast forward a hour & a half later... More

Enjoyed our meal at The Saffron. The food was very tasty although i thought the meals could have been just a little bigger in size. The restaurant was very pleasant to dine in and the staff were efficient. I would dine here again.

The Saffron is a great Indian restaurant, such a large variety of vegetarian, seafood or meat curries. The store itself is beautifully decorated and feels very authentic. Staff are friendly, helpful and efficient. The food is by far the best Indian around Hobart, easy for take away or dine in, and always perfectly made. My partner and I eat here... More

We went to The Saffron on a busy Saturday night and were attended to quite quickly. Our server was completely able to describe both the cont not and level of spiciness of the dishes, and all were very good. This is the first time since we left Dubai that we actually had HOT curry, from the perspective of spiciness, and... More

We were met with a friendly smile and immediately felt at home at this Indian restaurant with a stunning waterfront view. We opted for vegetable makani, dhal makani, rice and a garlic naan ... all were cooked to perfection. Great food at a very reasonable price. We have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant.

The curries were so tasty and seemed just like those in India....very authentic. We particularly enjoyed the mango chicken. We chose different mains and shared. Great.

Very basic, nothing special Indian food. Was a bit over priced for what we received. Wouldn't go back in a hurry.

Delicious meal here with lovely friendly service. Food was cooked well, quite a lot served in portion. Great choice on the menu. Drinks reasonably priced and food reasonably priced. Very enjoyable meal in the wharf area of Hobart. Takeaway available as well.

While in Hobart we visited this restaurant a few times and enjoyed the food very much. One of our family members had alternative dietary requirements and the staff were very helpful and obliging to assist in the meal choice. The views are lovely with the yatchts nearby.
