Delicious Pan-Asian Cuisine

Recently I went to party catered by Saffron59, and the food was amazing! My favorite dishes were noodles, mango lassis, spicy Indian chicken, and sticky black rice with mango. The waitstaff was helpful and friendly as well. Definitely recommended!

Delightful in Every Way!

We recently worked with Saffron 59 to cater a Golden Globes cocktail party, and were very happy with the turn out. Not only was the staff extremely friendly and very tentative, but the food was delicious! (I highly recommend the pumpkin ravioli!!)
The delicious smells of on site cooking, food display, serving staff and mouth-watering foods, all made this an easy and stress free catering experience. I really feel as if they went above and beyond and I’m looking forward to working with them again! Thank you Saffron 59.

Catering that we always count on

Saffron 59 always provides exquisite Asian fusion menus at our events. Since the cause of our organization is Cambodian children, we like to spin our events with an Asian touch. Their staff highlights this element with their neat attire and professional services. Our guests always leave the evening with very positive comments about the food and service.

Hire them for a great party!

They provided a memorable birthday party for my niece first birthday! Sumptuous BBQ and hors d'oeuvre to die for prepared and served by a wonderful staff! Fresh vegetable, fish and assortment of meat that everyone from young and old alike were prepared with much attention to detail. The most elegant table setting for the guests!

Stellar, One-Stop Event Planning

After working with Saffron 59 to help plan my sister's stunning wedding, I went straight back to Irene and her amazing team when I got engaged. I knew to trust them implicitly for their exquisite taste and efficient execution. Throughout the planning process, Irene and Saffron 59 were open, informed and inspired. Most importantly, on the day of the wedding, they created a romantic, transporting space and took care of every little logistical detail, allowing bride, groom and guests to simply enjoy and celebrate.

Scrumptous foods

Attention to detail in every aspect of your event will be considered, not just the food.

Absolutely horrible

We used Saffron 59 for our wedding and they ruined it. The food they let us sample during the tasting was good but when time came for the actual wedding, Irene was no where to be found. She had a more important event to attend. It was so shady. The result was, we got a third rate chef and the food was absolutely disgusting. So many of our guests were disappointed.

We tried to reach out to them to air our grievances, but they were not receptive at all. Don't use them, they are horrible!!! If you want your important event to go off without a hitch, go with another caterer. Saffron sucks.

Keep looking if you want to save your event

They ruined my wedding and took no responsibility for it. They did what I asked them not to do and then ignored all the requests I did make, simple things that should have been done were lacking such as champaign toast when we made our speech.

If you want to remember your event in a positive way then hire someone else and if you want your special day to feel like a black hole in your heart the Saffron 59 all the way.

Great for Weddings

We used Saffron59 to cater our NYC wedding. They were wonderful. The food presentation was exquisite and tasted great. I can't recommend them highly enough!

We were so lucky to have had each of you to help plan our wedding, and cannot tell you enough just how much your efforts meant to us and that yes, a year later, our friends and family continue to comment on the breathtaking atmosphere, the awesome music, the delicious food and the unique checker cab. The pictures and video truly captured that day and all the emotion present.
Thank you all again for all that you did and for providing us with a lifetime of memories...
Hope you're all well.

Exquisite food, great wine, splendid services!

Dear Saffron and the team:

You and your Saffron 59 colleagues did a wonderful job on the food and atmosphere for my party. Your food was exquisite and the several wines that you chose were great. I especially appreciated the lovely ware that the passed hors d'oeuvres came around on and the splendid service your colleagues provided. Many of our guests said they were quite blown away with Saffron's catering. We hope you will be willing to cater our housewarming and many other parties soon

heartfelt recommendation

Here it is finally, our heartfelt recommendation of your great team!!

""Working with Saffron 59 is a dream, for the palate and the spirit! From a truly inspired wedding banquet of 250 to an intimate wine dinner for 12 at our home, we have always been impressed beyond measure by their delicious, wonderfully creative and visually stunning creations. True to her Southeast Asian heritage, but always finding new ways to interpret those flavors, Irene never fail to surprise and wow a crowd. Always thoughtful of our needs and special wishes, Saffron truly embodies catering par excellence. And Saffron's remarkable team puts our minds at ease knowing that our affair will be run smoothly, professionally and one to talk about and cherish long after. We are looking for a reason to call on you again - soon!""
