What is Saffron?

Saffron is the most unique spice in the world. Saffron has an aroma and flavor which cannot be duplicated, and a chemical make-up which, when understood, helps the chef or home cook to know how to best release that flavor and aroma in cooking and baking.

Establishment of Saffron

After owning Manee Thai Restaurant on Broadway for a couple of years, Su Hill got the idea to open a Pan Asian Restaurant.

Not only Thai food but also Japanese food, Korean food and some really selective Asian foods. That’s the idea that became Saffron Restaurant. Su and her staff made that idea become a reality.

Finally, saffron opened on December 12, 2001 and became the only Pan Asian Restaurant and Sushi Bar in South East Missouri Region. We also offer smoke free dining and bar area.

Su Hill, owner of saffron restaurant in Cape Girardeau, has been in the restaurant business for 28 years.Currently she owns and manages restaurants in Cape Girardeua and Memphis.
