I live in Taipei and it s certainly the best indian restaurant here. It's good, tasty, service is fine, and you can speak english. But it s a little bit expansive and there is no CHEESE NAAN...........OH! What a shame! About the decoration...it s neutral, not very indian. If you go to dinner, don t forget to reserve!

I have been there once and I liked the taste and varieties of food available. Price of food is little bit costly and required prior booking.

Management on hand and very hands on w/o being intrusive. I ate vegetarian and my partner ate non veg and we were both delighted with our options. Bit pricey (100 USD for 2 inc 4 glasses of... More

Have been going here for two years and always have a great meal. We had our favorites, and have to get the Dal Bukhara every time, but the last few visits, we have been asking Abbie what she recommends and take her suggestions. She has been right every time, but suspect that is because everything on the menu is good.... More

This restaurant stands out of all Indian restaurants in Taipei, particularly because of it's tasteful ambiance and fine dining experience. Most of the Indian restaurants across Taiwan have very basic interiors but Saffron provides really good experience on that front. Service is good and the food was tasty. We ordered for lamb curry and chicken curry, and the quantity of... More

Everything is in my title. The food is exquisite, staff super professional (the waiter told us that two of our dishes being very similar in taste, He suggested we chose another recipe for one of them), the dining room is super clean, and not noisy at all. We love this place and enjoy going there.

Taipei is not necessarily known for its wide range of international cuisines, but Saffron offers an Indian culinary delight. With an authentic tandoori oven, the tandoori dishes are perfectly done. And the naan one of the best I've had! The decor of the restaurant is relaxing and cozy. Service is very good. Overall, an excellent experience!

One of the best Indian Food in Taipei !!! My kids love the paneer tika and samosa. The staff also very polite. Good ambience. Must go with a prior booking because it is usually full.
