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.

Patato pancakes, fresh baked bread, curry chicken, tandoori mixed grill from clay oven...Must try this place. They will also make things for you if you ask at no additional... More

We visited Middletown couple of days ago and after eating Italian food for couple of days, we were craving for Indian food. We reached there at 5pm. Greeted by manager with a smile. Ordered Combination of veg and other dishes. We asked for very spicy food. Wasn't very spicy. So asked for green chillies. Surprise was Chana masala. Turned out... More

This is one of my husband and I favorite places to eat Indian food. Always fresh and clean. Service is good. Also these guys are very benevolent. They donated some finger foods for my church's VBS celebration party. Pretty cool!

Finally- a restaurant that actually, happily accommodates your spice level without being insulted! Love the food (highly recommend their vegetable korma and samosas-not spicy), the occasional cocktail, and the service! Water glass constantly refilled without having to ask. Excellent choice located in a shopping center that could use "updating" and rented stores- don't let that discourage you! A few years... More
