Though the outside of Saffron was unassuming, when I entered the restaurant it was a nice surprise. The inside of this place was classy and all of the waiters/waitresses worked together to provide great service. Let me start by saying that though I am not totally versed on what all of the dishes I had were, I will do my... More

Saffron has a wonderful lunch buffet. The service is attentive and the food is the best in the area. Make sure you are there early because it will fill up fast!

Take out on the way. Food is average. The rice is sub par. It's not cooked right. It should be soft and not gritty which is half cooked. Mutton Sheekh Kabab is Great, and tasty. Will visit again.

I have eaten in some of the best India restaurants in London and was so happy when a good friend introduced me to the Saffron, it certainly is as good as many that I have eaten at previously in England. The Staff are friendly, the service great. It is very bright, pretty and clean. Most important the food is delicious,... More

Has a good verity of Indian food in the lunch buffet. Bright and clean ambiance. Service was pretty good. Food wise, Carrot halwa was excellent. Bada and batura were good as well. Chhole and dal makhani can have a little less tomato in them. Did not try the tandoori chicken, but looked real good. Will return and try the rest.

Took my wife who is not terribly adventurous in trying new foods from cultures that she hasn't tried before. She agreed the food was great! This is one of those places, If you're not sure you've had Indian food, then you probably won't recognize anything they bring you, but everything tastes awesome. Be sure, like a lot of Asian foods,... More

My family and I frequent Saffron and are never disappointed. We are Indian, so we know exactly what flavors we are looking for in a dish. We love it, and the staff are always very friendly.

Found meal worms in my rice from a take-out order. Sadly, I found them after I had already eaten half of the portion I was given. If you see any reddish/brown tints to your "rice," you might want to take a look. It might not be rice.

Visiting the South and in the mood for a healthy tasty meal. Hmmm, is that possible? After reading reviews, I thought I'd give this place a try, hoping it wasn't just a lot of curries with chicken. I first went to the salad bar and found a REALLY tasty Caesar Chicken salad. I noticed that it seemed to be overlooked... More

Superb flavors and tastes in the lunch buffete! Highly recommended for all those lovers of Indian cousine, in particular on a vegan diet. Mango smoothie great, tandori, and one of my faves- tamarind dressing! Aggghh, will miss this place...
