    My best friend, Alex sugested that we go to Saffron for dinner yesterday. I, once again, needed my friend, Google Maps to help me out but this wasnt as bad as the journey through Nakasero’s numerous roads. Saffron was an easy find.


    Saffron is a little beautiful, simple place tacked away just behind Acacia mall. It is a North indian restaurant looking to expand their menu with South Indian and African delicacies. The bar and lounge are under renovation currently so they are more active in the evening. Do not say I didnt warn you when you show up in the afternoon and cannot be helped.

    The service levels here are excellent and so is the hygiene. The waitress is not the funniest person in the room but at the same time-not mechanical. She is a warm lady who doesnt hover over us while we go through the menu. I hate hovering. (Food court restaurants-kindly pick a leaf, or take the goddamn tree if you like). She also does her due diligence about their current stock so we dont have to wait 3 hours to be told 4th Street is out of stock. I wasn’t elated about this discovery but I also wasnt ready to write the place off yet.

    I was also worried about their choice for the casual meal. I mean, unless you are the Happy meal type of guy-i dont think the Saffron Kids Combo is the best choice. There isnt much choice but to go for the signature meal which I didnt think was clever seeing as this week people would love to experiment. I mean i’d love to experiment. The point is for restaurants to go all out and not play safe.


    Alex and I ordered for the Saffron Family Combo. The waitress advised that the portions were big enough and we could share the meal. The Saffron Family Combo consists of Chicken Tikka, rice, butter naan and Gulab Jamun. The presentation was simple as required. 6 tender boneless chicken pieces in creamy gravy. By boneless I mean boneless. See, I have had enough fillet with bones and boneless meat with tibia fragments hence my stating the obvious that the boneless chicken was indeed boneless. The rice was welll done, I dont think there is any other way to cook rice. The butter naan? Gosh the naan was amazing. I am not a naan person but for any future requirement of naan in the system-i know where to get it.


    Needless to say this meal was subjected to 20% fork and spoon.


    I am a little disappointed that the Gulab Jamun wasnt served. This is a dessert in India. Spongy milky sweets served in rose scented syrup. It was part of the menu that they completely forgot about.

    That aside, the lighting here is very beautiful. I appreciate people that go the extra mile to invest in beautiful lamp shades. Before I delve into lighting I would love to present the award for Manager of the Year to Anil-Saffron’s operations manager who made his rounds to every table with clients just to make sure they were happy. As we all know, feedback is the breakfast for champions. In a service based business, this is the only way to succeed. He came over to our table, very professional gentleman, articulate and confident. He talked about the future plans for Saffron. Just enough for us to know and want to be part of their future. He took feedback well-apologised profusely for any shortcomings. Took a compliment and also gave us his take on the Ugandan service industry-sentiments the three of us shared.


    I could go on and on about this place. I rate it 8.5/10. I will definitely be back. I just need you guys to rush there already and enjoy yourselves. Thank me later.

    I was there yesterday with three friends. We had both family combos; the mutton and chicken. The food was great!!! Service was amazing, and best of all, they switched the dessert item on their menu and gave us ice cream, which was delicious. I will definitely be going back.

    My favorite Indian food is chicken tikka masala and naan
    , and at Saffron, they take it to another level.

    The staff is professional and the manager is attentive.
    Mr. Anil S. (the new manager), I commend the changes you have made to the place, good job!

    Whenever I need a good meal served fast or when I have a party in great ambiance, Saffron is The Place.

    I just can’t keep away
