My husband, who grew up in India, raves about their food and has commented on how traditional it tastes. You can't go wrong with Saffron!

We had medium Vindaloo Chicken and Madras Beef and they were fantastic. The Vindaloo Chicken was not too hot and the Madras Beef I asked for it to be as hot as they could make it and it was great ( just like I had as a Kid). The lentil dish was also superb. Love the garlic nan bread. Great... More

delicious entree & main. Only downfall was that we were never offered drinks & the staff would rush away before you were able to say a word.

We were the only clients on a cold sunday afternoon, she turned the heater on for us which was very kind. We spent $54 for lunch which is okay but the food did not feel fresh. The beef dish was very tough and strong beef smell, we only hardly ate one small chunk. The eggplant dish had lots of oil... More

The food is top class. The service is friendly and attentive. Sometimes it gets a little noisy but you have to travel a long way to get a better Indian meal. Four of us ate 3 courses last night for $100. Great value.

We ordered hotel-delivery which was a bit tricky as we didn't realise we were short of plates and cutlery. Fortunately some plastic forks were included. The food itself was excellent! We ordered mixed entree - and were almost full after the decent sized portions. The butter chicken, lamb korma and fish curry were excellent - as were the garlic naans.... More

I had my doubts about Indian food as I had a bad experience many year ago. We were feeling like something different so gave it a try. Yummy the food was very good and. We enjoyed it very much. Will be going back. Thank you Saffron for renewing my faith in Indian food.
