Small beer selection which... More

This restaurant offers a very good selections of the lunch buffet. The dinner portions are also generous. Chicken or lamb vindaloo are good choices if you like spicy dishes. Also very good vegetarian dishes available. You won't be disappointed.

Heard of this place, and visited with family. Wait was short, very polite server, and the best thing was the food, amazing, loved it. The ambience is just a normal not so fancy place, but the food makes up for it for sure. Even my little son who is so picky was very happy. Will be back again, thank you... More

My first time to try this place and I am impressed at the quality and taste of the buffet offerings. Particularly I enjoyed the paneer curry, coconut curry chicken, mushroom curry and of course, the butter chicken was fantastic. It is a buffet service and the wait staff are adequately attentive. My plate was taken away when I went up... More

It's not the cheapest but then again, cheap food tends to be, well... cheap! The curries on the buffet always taste fresh and well seasoned and the naan is wonderful.

I've been going to Saffron for about five years now. It's the best Indian food I've ever had. You can dine in or get take out. Whatever you choose, the food is always great. I don't live in the Lower Mainland anymore, but whenever I visit I always HAVE to go to Saffron!

Thank Kath E
