Despite a great amount of negative feedback about Saffron last year, my friends visiting Jamaica chose to go to Saffron for lunch over the holidays so I decided not to complain and to just go with the flow.
After a 45-minute wait for our food and an inattentive waitress, someone who seemed like a floor supervisor came over and asked if we were ok. The response was obvioisly ‘no’. We expressed how long our wait was. I do not recall an apology. If one was made it may have been a nonchalant one. However, he said he would look into it. Our food arrived about 10 minutes later.
At that point, hunger could have clouded our judgement but the quality of the food seemed mediocre and was nothing to write home about.
I saw no reason for such a long wait and we weren’t given a reason either. The restaurant was half empty in the middle of the day on Friday, December 23rd.
Their partner Restaurant, Tamarind in Orchid Plaza, Barbican gets much better reviews so I will revisit there in due time. Look out for their review on Tamarind Continental soon though.
I hope Saffron improves this year especially with their service.
