Saffron Halal Restaurant

Shopping here in Myeongdong and looking for a quality halal restaurant?

We have got a good recommendation for you! Saffron Restaurant is well known in Myeongdong for its quality Indian and Arabian cuisine in a posh and quiet setting. Do a search online and you will find many satisfied customers leaving their comments on the list of TripAdvisor and other travel blogs! The service here is top-notch and the atmosphere quiet and very pleasant. It is also conveniently located not too far away from the Lotte Departmental Store, where plenty of tourists who visit Myeongdong would surely make it a point to visit!

We ordered the stir-fried chicken dish together with basmati rice. It came down to about slightly more than 40,000KRW, which was a little higher than the usual halal restaurant but the great taste, posh environment and top notch service simply made up for it. Definitely worth it if you are coming in big groups!

It was one of the best meals we have had in a long while! The meat was really fresh and succulent, and its taste just reminded us of home. Not a place we would frequent but definitely one we would recommend for those seeking a good and satisfying meal here in Korea!
