Saffron Fine Indian Cuisine

Enjoy the flavours of India at Saffron. This is a very small and busy restaurant, so good advice would be to book in advance. The restaurant is beautifully designed with earth tones and the staff are attentive and friendly.


The regional cuisine is a mix of Chinese, Japanese, and aboriginal Hakka styles. It is also influenced by its island geography and the scarcity of arable land. Fish and poultry, therefore, play a major role in local cooking. However, the base of all dishes is made up of seasoning varieties particular to Asian cooking, such as soy sauce, rice wine, and sesame oil, supplemented with black beans, peanuts, chilli peppers, and a local variety of basil.
