Very high quality, but slow service

The food is very good, but not so great on the value for money side (depends on how much appetite you have :p). The speed of service and responsiveness can be improved a bit.

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

We went to the Saffron for an evening meal. we were shown to a table by the attending staff, which looked very comfortable and we settled down in it Suddenly the Maitre turns up after about 5-10 minutes and say - very sorry sir this table has been 'reserved' for a party and can you move to a different table...

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. (Sitarist even played the Birthday song on Sitar) The whole ambience exuberates warmth. Except for starters (especially Galouti Kebab)... More

This was one of my highlights of the Mumbai trip. Had dinner at Saffron with a couple of friends. We decided to get the non-veg platter. The selection of dishes was exceptional, with the waiters bringing one dish after another. We could have the same dish as many times as we wanted if we liked it, so that was definitely... More

The restaurant is not very large, and since it overlooks the very large Lotus cafe its identity gets lost and it really does not stand out as it should. It is a simple setup and you would not identify it as an Indian restaurant unless you glance at the open kitchen, where you will see the copper handis and a... More
