Yum yum Usually jumping at the bar. Waiter remembers us and our likes. Always willing to suggest good choices. Garlic naan is fresh and yummy. We always share dishes. This works well.

Lamb kebab - uncooked and layer of chilli Applied. Briyani - uncooked rice mixed with chicken and red chilli powder. Totally my dinner was spoiled, with burning sensation in stomach after eating. Instead I could have starved.

After eating here I can't bear to try any new Indian places in area, as this is by far the best I've found. I'm partial to chana masalla and theirs is delicious, and their sag paneer is delocious to, has plenty of paneer and is wonderful. The naans are great too. We have also tried the samosas and bhaji, which... More

I know the food cost in CA is more compare to any other state still I am tot satisfied with the spread. Very limited option for both veg and non veg. Taste is below par for the price they charge. At least they should increase their non veg to 3 items from 2 for the weekend buffet.

I tried the mango curry because I love mango and the sweet-spicy blends. Ordered it with chicken because I thought it pairs well with mango... and this was indeed a great pairing. Wonderful... More

This Indian restaurant in a suburban shopping center was an unexpectedly pleasant find as we were staying at a nearby motel and had no idea what restaurants were nearby. We happened across Saffron by chance and are glad we did. All the dishes (vegetarian) we tried were very good ... I've eaten at many Indian restaurants and I'd say that... More
