What a jewel in the middle of a very non descript shopping mall! The food is wonderfully prepared, the buffet has excellent variety and the price is so reasonable. I asked for a glass of Chardonnay and was served an upscale wine at house wine prices. The server was very attentive. You will not be disappointed!

I had never eaten in an Indian restaurant and was a little concerned because I had no idea what to order. The wait staff took plenty of time to explain each of the entrees. The service was excellent and the food came out of the kitchen just as it was described. The food tasted great and the prices were very... More

I am new to Indian cuisine. I completely enjoyed my meal. Our waiter was attentive and helped me make a choice that I would enjoy. I had bityani with shrimp. Delicious and the portion was huge! My husband had a roasted meats platter and a 5000 beer. He thought the beer was a bit sweet but that could just be... More

Have eaten at many Indian and Pakistani restaurants and found this restaurant to be very average. Had the Rogan Josh which I found to be OK but nothing special. My wife had a chicken dish which I did not like at all. We shared the entrees. I also found this restaurant to be more expensive than others that I have... More

For lunch a buffet is provided. The usually spicy foods are toned down a bit so if you love the burn order off the menu. But to get a taste of the flavors of India this is a good introduction. Bread is provided. the staff will keep your water glass full. The tables have tablecloths which makes this a classy... More

This restaurant was The Ground Round back in the day and my husband and I used to go there on the weekends for dinner. The place was huge but it was always packed. We were sad to see it go but I was excited to have an Indian restaurant so close. We went there once for dinner for Valentine's Day... More

We always have our girls night out here. We order 3-4 dishes at a time and share them, passing dishes around the table like a family dinner. I have tried so many items off the menu and each one of them is delicious. Never a disappointment. You can request to have your food with little spice, my own girlfriend often... More

Went to lunch with a co-worker and we decided on Indian. I always found the buffet selections to be varied, tasty and hot - today was not different. Staff was attentive and despite the large amount of people there, it was still not crowded (large birthday party). If you like good Indian food, Saffron is the place to go in... More

Excellent quality food well prepared and attractively presented. The wait staff was welcoming and helpful. I had forgotten my Restaurant.com coupon, but they let me use their wifi to call it up on my tablet and then took the number and called it in. The dining room was large and attractive, but a little crowded and had little in the... More
