Great food, decent portions, underwhelming prices

Loved our meal here, wished it was a bit cheaper. I ordered the Peshwari chicken which was really very good. Restaurant is smack in the middle of Town Center, and the promotional "Monster Coupons" book that you see for free everywhere has a $5 coupon in it for this place.

My wife and I along with our friend took me to Saffron Indian Bistro for my birthday lunch on June 4, 2015 at about 1:00 pm. After we sat down and received our food, the waiter seemed like he was in a rush to get us out. We couldn't really get a chance to enjoy the food and atmosphere. He... More

This is the tastiest Indian food in the area. Every dish is rich and flavorful. We like it hot and they can make it hot. I am not a buffet person and would not recommend that at Saffron. Order from the menu, it's much better.

My boyfriend and I visit Saffron as often as we can (or whenever we want delicious Indian food)! The food is always perfect and the service is quick and friendly. The servers are friendly and informative if asked questions and are always attentive. The best Indian food in town, for sure!

I have always been a fan of Saffron. And yes they always have great food. I could have rated 5 but the service in this last visit was subpar. Got there with only one customer in the place, got seated but waited 15-20 minutes before someone finally decided to ask for our order. Disappointed that the service has been inconsistent.

as an Englishman living in USA, a good curry is important to me and the Saffron Restaurant meets that need. Food was very good, shame they did not provide papadums (crispy chips instead) as you sit down. Only negative was the service, as we arrived we waited five mins or so to see anyone even though they were empty. Then... More

Met a friend for lunch and did the lunch buffet. Ok, understand buffets can be less than great, but this buffet was containers of what looked like prison food or cafeteria food. Not fresh, not appetizing. The chicken wings were great, everything else was just a huge disappointment. The reason we haven't returned to Saffron again was the spotty food... More

Lunch buffet includes bread, salad, main course, and desert. Excellent variety of entrees to chose from, and really good food.

Good food, able to get a reservation quickly…service is usually challenged. Not sure what the deal is…never quite sure who is our server. But this meal was good. They really need to rearrange their bar/entrance area…very uninviting to get to the dining room. That bar area has potential…but nobody in there! Add bar tables, get rid of the booths…nobody wants...

I was extremely disappointed with the food quality here. Service was still fine, but the food quality was a deal breaker. I will never visit this restaurant again.
