I like to participate in life rather than be a spectator. Music, dancing, theatre, travelling, food, cycling and walking are some of my passions. Writing is an enjoyable pastime that allows me to share my experiences.

A mezze house in the Kingston shops, Saffron Restaurant serves up colourful tasty food that is designed to share. The flavours of Lebanon, Morocco, Greece and Turkey are infused with the spices of golden saffron and zesty lemony sumac. The Azize brothers have won several awards over the years for their restaurant which showcases the flavours of the countries of their ancestral homeland.

The menu is full of interesting tasty entree and main dishes but we opted for the great value $39 per head banquet in order to taste a variety of foods. The service was impeccable and friendly and the food was lovely, well-cooked, tasty and full of fresh flavours.

They are fully licensed with an extensive drinks list but you are welcome to BYO wine at $10 per bottle corkage. There is also a children's menu and there are dishes suitable for vegetarians on the menu.

Although we had more than enough to eat, we did not regret our choice of homemade baklava for dessert. It was soft and lightly flavoured with honey but not overly sweet and was served with halva, Turkish delight and Persian fairy floss and a perfect complement to our meal.
