Really enjoyed my dining experience here...was my best in my one week stay. Place is very well presented. Serving staff polite and knowledgeable. 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.

The food at Saffron was so ridiculously good! The prawn curry was too good I didn't want to share! Each dish was cooked to perfection and EVEN the naan bread was divine. I loved the way the food was presented too! The service was unbeatable. Abbie, Chris and the others were attentive, convivial, helpful and vivacious, the perfect complement for... More

My wife and I went here recently for a meal and the food was amazing. We decided to be brave and try some things we'd never had before. The staff were great and chatted to us about the menu and even gave some recommendations. The head of floor staff Abbie is really cool, and speaks excellent English. The place is... More
