I have been going to the place for the last 2 years and every time I go there, the deliciousness, consistency and the quality amazes me either you order vegetarian or non vegetarian. few of my favorites are...

This is a great spot for tasty and authentic Indian served by the owner and a pleasant staff. While the pappadams don't rival those in Englan, the food was very good, reasonably priced and cooked to order. Enjoyed it and would recommend it.

Only best item was ginger ale !!!! Food is pretty bad. Bread was hard and old. Never going to try again. Horrible and waste of money .

The waitress/owner was very kind, the food was served fast. Mango drink was delicious, I had two. The food was enough for a second meal. They only serve wine and beer.

Saffron is north Indian cuisine. While they have the typical curry, masala, and vindaloo, you can get those anywhere. Try something different. The Rarga Gosth and Lamb Rogan Josh were both excellent. Prices are reasonable, the serving size is ample, and the decor is pleasant for a storefront restaurant. The service was friendly and attentive - they really cared. As... More

Lovely tables to eat in or call and order for take out. They don't deliver but it is worth it to stop in. Pleasant people welcome you in and offer you a seat while they get your food. Delicious food cooked to your spice preference. If you aren't familiar with all their offerings definitely go in and order or eat... More

Indian Cuisine is varied, with different regions specializing in different preparations and dishes. Finding one which will effectively provide what you request, changing a standard offering, is a delight. My request was to take their excellent "Tomato Soup", already spicy to some degree, to another level of "heat"; retaining its texture, without thickening it nor hiding the delightful taste.. The...

This little storefront restaurant has simple decor and a neighborly feel. We sought it out, after seeing many good reviews, because my husband, a big fan of the Indian curries he encounters in England and the Mideast, has complained about the lack of authentic local options. As for me, I've never met a paneer anything I didn't like. It was... More
