I like the vegetarian food options there and hence go there very frequently. Paneer curries are good and Black Dal is very good. Dahi ke Kabab are awesome and best bread is Warqi Paratha and ask them to bring it crumbled and made crispy.

The only drawback is that the restaurant does not have a view and is tucked between the coffee shop and the asian restaurant, I am sure a... More

To begin with, it feels home away from home dining at saffron as it totally justifies its speciality - north western food. We being from Northern part of India, are visiting Mumbai as a part of our vacation. And hence our sensitivity towards the quality and satisfaction drawn from north Indian/Awadhi food. Visited Saffron as a recommendation from someone known... More

Having visited this place many years back, we decided to re-visit this place to celebrate one of our friends birthday. Sitarist playing Hindi Classics on a Sitar, live, within this dimly lit beautiful restaurant is very soothing to ears and heart.
