Located on Corporation Road, Saffron is the place to go for a piece of the exotic Middle East in Newport, serving up superlative Persian cuisine. Start off by sharing some mouthwatering mezze, like the dolmeh (stuffed vine leaves), grilled chicken wings or kashk-e-bademjan (fried aubergine with buttermilk,mint and walnuts). Then, try one of Saffron’s BBQ dishes like the kofte kebab (a succulent skewer of minced lamb cooked on the BBQ, served with grilled tomato, fresh salad and rice) or a hearty Persian stew like the ghormeh sabzi (diced lamb, red kidney beans and dried lime slow-cooked in finely chopped herbs and served with rice). To guarantee a table at Saffron, situated in the Somerton area, close to Victoria and Little turkey, book a table in advance!
Excellent service - nice, quiet environment - recommended to all - friendly atmosphere - fantastic food. I even bought some take away for my mum. There is something on the menu for everyone ..... hot or mild or spicy.
