Maelinar’s write up of Legends in Manuka has inspired me to submit a quick story about my own positive dining experience in the weekend. I went for a three course meal with my girl (Sarius Minimus) at Saffron, next to the Cinema, also in Manuka.
Saffron serves a variety of Mediterranean food at fair prices for the quality of food ($10-15 entree, $20-30 main). We were a little unadventurous and had some mixed dips, the mixed entrÃ©e, and I had the Tawok. Serving sizes were generous, and the food was well prepared and creatively presented. The staff were friendly and obliging, plus the food came out quick, although we did head in early (6:30). Jamius Maximusâ€™ massive Roman-sized hunger was well satisfied.
A great night out â€“ coming in at just under $100 for three courses and (non-alcoholic) drinks. Well worth it. But I might be preaching to the converted, as I am told this place has been around for a while and is quite popular.
