My wife and a friend joined me for a special dinner at Saffron Indian Cuisine. The evening could not have gone better. The restaurant's menu is very large, and it presents the entire spectrum of Indian food from vegetarian offerings to the hottest vindiloo dishes. The side dishes and deserts were also very good. Service was attentive but unobtrusive. And,... More

When on a business trip I try to find the food I love. So when I saw there was an Indian restaurant near my hotel I simply could not resist. And I wasn't disappointed. Given a choice of how spicy to have my food, I opted for "medium plus". The goat vindaloo was perfection itself. Too bad I'm only here... More

My wife and I have been to Saffron several times now and we are never disappointed. I absolutely love the chicken tikka Marsala but honestly I've never had a bad thing on their menu! The garlic naan is to die for and their drinks are well made as well. If you're looking for a fun night out or even a... More

I visited here with my daughter while driving back from atlanta. It was about closing time and there were just a few customers. We ordered some malai Kofta, Paneer and Naan. Taste was good, service is good. Please change the music from the instrumental which is just lousy now. Ghazals would be more appropriate with a more relaxed atmosphere.

I had never had Indian cuisine and I was so surprised to find that I liked it!...the restaurant staff was friendly and helpful when asked questions about different items on the menu. I don't eat very spicy food so it was a help that they have all levels of "heat" to add to the menu choice. I have not eaten... More

Good authentic Indian cuisine. The Chicken Tikka was great and the Buffet was delicious from the presentation to the excellent taste. You can also order from the menu and request the level of spices that you want. Good food and good service.

We went to Saffron for the first time on Sunday for lunch with friends. The restaurant is located in a shopping center and the décor is surprisingly nice inside. The first thing all of us noticed was how clean the place was. It became crowded very quickly. The lunch buffet offered lots of choices, most made with either tomatoes or... More

my scallop jalfraze had really fresh vegetables, scallops of course, all drenched in light tomato sauce. and their naan baked in tandoor clay oven was served hot and drizzling in butter. oh boy they were good! service could have been a tad more open (willing to explain and instruct) and welcoming, but otherwise very functional and the place was clean...
