If you are looking for authentic Indian cuisine with excellent service...look no further! I am in LOVE with this place. Spicy means spicy so go for it and enjoy the Bollywood playing in the background. I have been here many many times and have never been disappointed. Perfect!

This place serves all sorts of Indian cuisine and runs a daily lunch buffet service that includes a drink of your choice. The choice of food on the buffet is not as good and the lighting is on the lower side. Prices are affordable and the service is good.

We don't have a lot of opportunity to enjoy authentic Indian Food, so when we can we do. Everything here was excellent and the service was great also. If you are in the area and want Indian Food, this is the place.

On an overly hot night, where neither the wife or myself had any desire to make the kitchen hotter than it already was, I suggested that we try the local Indian place around the corner. What a pleasant surprise this was!!! If your not familiar with Indian cuisine then the menu is a little hard to navigate, however the staff... More

I come here with my friends about once or twice a month and we absolutely love the food. The service is always very prompt and friendly. I know when I come to Saffron, I am going to get a great meal!

I visit here with work. This time it was with a colleague. I had the Saffron vegetarian delight set meal (he had chicken korma). The set meal was as wonderful as I remembered it from last year: paneer tikka in spiced butter massalla sauce , choice of aubergines or cauliflower ( I chose aubergine), raita, nan and rice. A steal... More

If you had asked me about 18 months back, i would have rated these guys at about 2.5 stars on 5....in the last 6 months, they have refreshed their menu including set meal options. The food has gone up a couple of notches in terms of flavor, taste, spice & temperature. They also have kept their ears close to customer... More

I disagree with the reviewer who said the lunch buffet was bad, although she seems to be Indian so maybe can know this more than I or is more critical due to this. I enjoyed the buffet. I can't eat very spice at all so a couple of dishes were a little hot for my taste, but for others they... More
