Place was pretty quiet but it was Sunday at 1pm. After we got there a few came in but the place was pretty empty. They served fresh naan which was delicious and their buffet options were plentiful. 12.99 for a buffet is pretty at standard for the weekend. Definitely better Indian food out there. But you will have to drive... More

Don't let the location fool you. This is one of the best Indian restaurants I have been too. The choices are diverse, but if it says spicy it is Indian spicy which means more than what you might be used to. The flavors are perfect and the portions just right. Even though they were a littl short handed when I... More

We were new to Indian food several years ago, and started in Saffron. Since then we have tried others in this area and throughout our travels. Saffron by far serves the consistently best food. We like to try a new item each time, and have never been disappointed. The staff are always friendly, knowledgeable about items on the menu, and... More

We had never eaten Indian food and tried it at Saffron. The wait staff was very helpful anf helped us decide great choices. I tried the Shrimp Mango dish and my husband had a chicken/shrimp/lamb mixture with a creamy spinach sauce. Both were served over batsami rice.We also ordered garlic naan bread and vegtable mimosas. Nice meal and an adventure... More

My wife and two children went their last weekend and enjoyed the buffet. The kids ordered chicken fingers since they are very finicky eaters. My wife and I enjoyed the meal. The meats were not dried out like in many other Indian establishments. Even the vegetarian dishes were all very tasty. We also ordered mango lassies which was required to... More

Four of us went for the lunch buffet. There were enough choices that I think most people would find something to please them. The naan was fresh out of the oven - delicious - I ate too much of it! There were a couple of spicy dishes, and also some not so. When in doubt, ask! There were a few... More

On our way through town headed to Rhinebeck, we stopped for dinner. Lovely people, the staff wanted to please. The food was good, though the spicing was inconsistent-- one dish ordered medium had way more heat than another that was also meant to be medium. The Pepper Salmon Tikka was terrific.
