Good service and great food. Best Indian in KW area, we drive here from Waterloo because of the great quality. Every dish has its own distinctive flavour. Interesting dishes, they have the regular butter chicken and biryani but also less known dishes that I will in time all try!

Except Biryani, all other items are very good here. Will go there once again with friends. It is nearby to the Cambridge smartcentre.

We have been here a few times now and eat in or take out are always great. We have tried the others in Cambridge and this is now our top pick for Indian food. They also give you a $5.00 discount on take out...a great idea!

Food was fantastic! When there with my wife and another couple. We were all in agreement this was one of the best Indian restaurant we've eaten at. Personally, I ordered the Curry Goat and enjoyed it. Definitely going to order it again.

We were looking for a restaurant for lunch and fancied Indian food, so we searched through our vehicles GPS and found another restaurant The Grain of Salt but driving there we went past the Saffron, they had a special posted whereas the Grain of Salt had nothing, so we went back to the Saffron. We were glad we did, the sever greeted us very friendly and let us sit anywhere as the restaurant wasn't busy, we chose a booth.

The food is excellent quality as good as any Indian Restaurant in Canada, we chose the lunch special which is styled like some Indian Restaurants in Britain where you choose the meat and then a sauce making your own choice. I had not experienced this in Canada before. All the usual meat and popular sauces are available. We chose a butter chicken and lamb with creamy spinach (Saag Lamb), the spinach sauce was one of the best I have had.

The portions are large and come in a stylish square bowl and accompanied with a bowl of plain rice and naan bread. The price was $12.99 for lamb and $11.99 for chicken this included the Naan. So even though it's from a lunch special you are getting ala carte portions.

Highly recommend you try this restaurant, it's not a typical Indian Restaurant as it's the bar for the adjoining Travel Lodge hotel. Our server was very friendly and attentive and the food was served pretty quickly.
