Saffron De Twah is the first Modern Moroccan Bistro by Chef Omar Anani on the Detroit's East side. A neighborhood friendly spot that is accessible to all. With a lot of French and Spanish influence, Moroccan cuisine offers a lot of play with ingredients and menu creativity that Chef Omar really indulges in and creates dishes that are new yet familiar. The idea that all are welcome, the door is always open, and we give back to the community that makes us possible are just a few of core values that Saffron was created on.

Last week, I was cruising down Gratiot to pick up lunch and ended up with a history lesson in North African protectorates. Saffron De Twah is gearing up to be one of the very few Moroccan restaurants in Metro Detroit.
— Melody Baetens, The Detroit News
Its menu looks awesome with dishes like Morocco-style hot chicken.
— Tom Perkins, Detroit Metro Times
Scratch made. Thoughtful and delicious. Recommend those Kefta meatballs and lamb ribs for the meat eaters and cauliflower for the vegans get fed.
— Chef Harriette Brown
One of the hottest restaurants in Detroit right now
— Brenna Houck, Eater Detroit
Food was awesome and very fresh. It was worth the 25 minute drive one way to go pick up lunch.
