Review - Saffron Restaurant




With the logo and menu design both based upon the lilac saffron crocus, it should be immediately apparent that Saffron Restaurant is a Persian restaurant.



Saffron is made from the dried stigmas of these pretty saffron crocuses, and employed in a variety of ways in Persian cuisine.



The most obvious use of saffron is in the golden Persian saffron rice, which you’ll find served with a chicken kebab - Joje Kebab ($12) - that has the same telltale hue. Koobideh Kebab ($11) gives you the same long grained, aromatic rice with two lamb mince skewers. This restaurant is owned and run by Miriam, and her three sisters. Miriam was a tour guide back in Iran, where her father ran a restaurant in Shiraz for twenty-six years. Miriam understands the benefit of tour groups, so she happily welcomes Taste Food Tours groups with individual tasting platters containing a number of key Persian dishes. Along with various kebabs, the platter also includes a taste of broad bean rice, turned green with dill.



Taste Food Tours are currently offering a 17% discount for any tour bookings between now and 2 January, valid for any January or February tour. Just use the discount code TASTE2017 to receive this price saving. Saffron Restaurant is part of their From Arghanistan to Persia tour, which ordinarily costs $95 per person.
