Went there for lunch and got great and speedy service. You order at the counter and pay and then you sit down and wait (not for long). They bring you the food (after calling your number) and afterwards there is free coffee and you don't have to wait in line to pay. Healthy food, tasty food.

We stopped here due to reviews. We tried Pizza and the did accommodate a vegetarian which is nice. The others in the party indicated the tandoori chicken was good and is served with rice and sweet potatoes. The location is convenient and current in decor. Slick and clean with nice fixtures. They offer Pizza salads and fish and chicken entrees.... More

We weren't sure at first about this place but so glad we gave it a try as the service and food were super. We both had pizza different ones and each one was delicious. Good for a quick bite to eat not much atmosphere etc but if you can get past that it's well worth a try - good value... More

I'm a regular at Saffran, and always have the same thing; the saffran chicken :) All of my visits are for lunch and it is always very busy during that time, because it is a popular place to eat at, so they are definitely doing something right.

Our hotel recommended this restaurant and we're glad we went. The restaurant was clean and the service was quick. After traveling all over Iceland for 9 days, we were looking for a decent meal that didn't cost an arm and a leg. Saffron fit the bill to a "T". My wife and I ordered the tandoori chicken with brown rice,... More
