One of our favourite Restaurants to go eat at, love the food, love the friendly service & love the ambience. Safe parking and simply a great experience overall, whether it is a drink and snacks with friends or a lazy sit-down eating experience, you just can't go wrong.

We went, all 7 of us, on my daughter's recommendation. Everything about the location is fine, but on our visit the food & service were very poor indeed. We had to wait an inordinate amount of time for the food to arrive, and when it did it was most disappointing. Lamb, sole, Thai chicken curry & venison were main courses... More

The seating is beautiful. Facing the Golf . The food was delicious . From the starters to the salads and the oysters . But the highlight of the lunch was The Kudu , which was prepared deliciously .

We were in Pretoria for the night and wanted to celebrate my husband's birthday, so booked a table at Blu Saffron, without knowing what to expect. Despite being a large restaurant, it was warm and inviting thanks to the decor and tables being divided into smaller areas. I am not sure whether it is the owners or managers of the... More

Although it was difficult to reach the restaurant due to the Tshwane open our perseverance paid off and it was worth the trouble. The food was amazing and we enjoyed every mouthful!

We went there for a business lunch. The private dining room and service was great. The staff were very friendly. The wine selection excellent and the food great. The lamb shoulder and lamb rump was great. The view over the 18th green was also very pleasing. All in all, it is an excellent restaurant that I would recommend to anyone,... More

the chef greets you personally and explains his daily specials in a way that is mesmerizing. And he works up to his promises. The food was excellent, the wine list great and the price was a bit above average but acceptable for what you got. A very nice setting with table cloths and linen napkins all arranged in a perfect...
