    A fabulous feast of tasty dishes, both veggie and meaty, finishing with delicious Saffron ice cream. Very generous portions - we could not quite finish everything and left with a doggy bag.

    The food is delicious and beautifully presented. For example, the side salad I ordered was a work of art and also large enough to share. The staff are friendly and helpful. The restaurant itself is decorated nicely. To finish your meal I would highly recommend the Persian Tea.

    Very interesting and delicious food, once again. The portions are quite large, so it turned out I had over-ordered, and our waitress was happy to provide a box for the 'doggie bag' home! The Persian tea is a lovely end to a meal.

    Lovely meal. I am coeliac and require a strictly gluten free meal. There are lots of options at Saffron by Paradise. However, be aware that all the fried items although marked gluten free are cooked in the same oil as gluten containing items and are therefore not gluten free. You need to update your menu to reflect this.

    A restaurant of outstanding quality. Was recommended by colleagues at work and booked in for lunch. Saffron is an intimate and authentic Iranian gem, with food so tasty and moreish. You have to try the sticky, spicey aubergines. Just delicious. And, great prices!!

    This is becoming my go-to restaurant for entertaining friends and clients (or delivery when we crave Persian). Exotic enough (for Scotland) to spark interest, but the food is easy to like with great flavours nicely presented. Recommendations include the pistachio dip, curried carrots, fesenjoon (a must), and ghormeh sabzi. A great experience.

    Mixed dips, very yummy. Slow cooked duck breast with tangy sauce, scrumptious. Slow cooked lamb with fenugreek, so soft and tender. Great flavour combinations. Always attentive and polite staff with quick service without being pushy. Makes you feel at home. Pricing for this quality is great. If you've never tried it I would book in for a treat.

    4 of us went here on a Thursday night. We got a very friendly welcome. The menu was varied with plenty of choice and portion sizes. We had a mix of small plates and mains as well as dips and nan. Everything was delicious and it was hard to pick a favourite. £140 with 2 bottles of wine was great value and we can't wait to return. Service was great too.
