Nice Brunch Buffet

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... read 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

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

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

My wife and wanted something a little different so we decided to try saffron. Started with the combo appetizer and it was good. Nice assortment and all with great flavor. My wife had the butter chicken and she loved it and I had the lamb chops which were amazing. Plenty to eat. Had the rice pudding for dessert which was... 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
