We wet to Saffron for dinner and absolutely enjoyed it. We ordered a lamb curry and definitely loved it - so many flavors and delightful on the tongue. We also ordered the grilled mahi mahi and it was also good, but would probably recommend their curry more. They have an Indian chef making dishes inside the restaurant and the staff... More

We entered the restaurant and were seated. As soon as the staff notoced that our Chinese Language is very very poor, the lady boss came to help us. She spoke very good English. She explained everyting and we had a wonderful diner. Espacially nice, besides, the good food, is that one of the two kitchens is an open kitchen, so... More

My daughter wanted to eat Indian so we decided to try Saffron. The restaurant is tastefully decorated. The staff are friendly and very helpful. The vegetarian samosas were yummy. They weren't spicy and it was not oily. We ordered butter and garlic nan. For the main dish we chose chicken tikka masala and butter chicken. Everything was delicious. This is... More

All time favourite Indian restaurant in Taiwan - Taipei, always met my expectations of kicking the taste buds. Not to forget to mention the chef Ranjeet Rawaat was always courteous and prepares a amazing Tandoori chicken and butter chicken.

Fine dining and Indian food is normally an oxymoron but Saffron's team manages to pull it off. The service level, the cutlery, the decoration, definitely give the fine dining feel. We ordered a lot of dishes but the stand out ones for me were - gosht notice kebab, lentil salad, the chilli pakora (part of the vegetable pakora platter), saag... More

I was visiting some friends up in the Tienmu area and they took me to Saffron for dinner. It was one of the best Indian food experiences I've had. I didn't order anything. My friends took care of ordering a number of different dishes and we had a family style shared dinner. It was really amazing and this allowed me... More

Last time we visited saffron, we tried the lentil salad. It was like the Indian version of salsa--it was delicious and I'll now order it every time.

This is the only restaurants which serves authentic Indian food. There are so many places in Taipei to have Indian food. The ingredients they use are the best among all the other restaurants. Have been many times and it's been always the best in my list for Indian food.

We came without reservation but the wait staff still made us a table around dinner time. During the meal, all the waiters took care of us so well and all the dishes are also delicious too. I will definitely come back again!
