“Awesome setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2012

I just visited last night Saffron at Trident Hotel in Gurgaon. The food was nothing great, but the atmosphere, layout right from the moment you enter the hotel was awesome. The restaurant was almost empty so was able to sit right next to classical Indian musicians playing sitar, tabla and some other instrument. Just love the set up, staff were extremely friendly, just wished the food could have been a little more exciting. Absolutely perfect setting to interview someone whilst having a quite meal.

“If you want authentic indian food, then move on ......”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2012

I visited this restaurant few time in the last 2/3 years as this is very close to my office and we had several official meetings and dinners in this place. Somehow, I have never found a restaurant in Oberoi hotels ( The Oberoi - Bangalore is exception) giving good food. They present and prepare Indian food to suit the tastes of Western travelers. The service was awful as the lady was not even giving us a smile when we entered and she gave an impression that she was waiting for some important guys and was thoroughly disappointed seeing us! Reluctantly, she showed a table ( nothing to choose from: either near the door or close to the musicians ) and we ordered some drinks and vegetarian food. Consistently on all the occasions, I took food in this restaurant, I found the food very bland and tasteless. Service was good and definitely, that cannot make up for this tasteless food.

I went with my cousins who had come down from US, they wanted to have Indian food hence I took them to Saffron at Trident Hilton in gurgaon. The ambience was very nice, stewart was very well informed about the menu and the preparation, the food was yummy and the qualli was icing on the cake to add to the mood of an Indian dinner. It was a wow experience.

“Awesome food and great ambience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2012

I went with my colleagues and clients from Singapore for lunch. The ambiance of the restaurant is great.The Trident service quality sweeps you leaving you with a great experience. The serving staff was very courteous and attentive.
We ordered buffet, and requested if the same could be served at the table and the staff very happily made arrangements.

I had ordered for veg thali and i must say from the soup to the main course and the dessert , each item was sumptuous.

The pan ice cream served as dessert was great.A must try for Indian food lovers :)

“Great Indian food in lovely surroundings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2011

I have eaten at the Saffron 3 times before and the food has always been of a very high quality. This occasion was no different.

The restaurant is relatively small in the Trident Hotel and has a very good atmosphere - there were 3 people playing instruments as background music on this occasion.

The menu is not extensive but it does offer a good choice for both veg and non veg diners. The naan bread is especially good - why are naans so poor in the UK? We had a good selection of BBQ'd starters and excellent chicken and fish curries.

The drink list is good although on this occasion I only had the sparkling water.

Service very professional throughout and not over-powering (which I find can happen in some high quality hotel restaurants.

Will be back.
