We came without reservation but the wait staff still made us a table around dinner time. During the meal, all the waiters took care of us so well and all the dishes are also delicious too. I will definitely come back again!

The food is great. The service is excellent. The tables are a bit close together but despite that, it is not overly noisy. The ambience is good. For an upscale restaurant it is not expensive. The corkage for white wine is NT$300. We will be back.

Saffron is not my favorite Indian place because it is way too fancy for me and it's also one of the most expensive places, but it is hands down the best, nevertheless. It's particularly good for a date (remember, it's fancy). Decor is attractive, tables have white tablecloths, waiters are fairly attentive, and curries are flavorful and complex. However I'm...

The food was amazing and the service was delightful. A great fine dining experience. And the kulfi was the best I've ever had so its a must try fr me. All in all, the best Indian restaurant in Taiwan.

I went there for my birthday and it was pretty amazing ! The curries are good, the staff is so nice, the naan is most likely the best on the whole island and the dessert were delicious.

Believe the hype, believe the 5 star reviews, Saffron is the real deal. Excellent staff, great Indian food! I will definitely visit this restaurant again. There's no MRT station nearby, so the best route would be to Zhishan Station on the red line, then taxi or bus.

I have lived in Taipei for two years now and I have not come across a better place for a curry. Staff are very friendly and knowledgeable about the food they serve.

If you are looking for authentic Indian cuisine in Tian Mu (or even in Taipei) this is the place to go. Full every day, locals and visitors. Staff is friendly, prices are reasonable.

Had a great meal here last night - good choice of dishes on the menu and lots for me as a vegetarian. I had the sag paneer which was delicious - freshly cooked and beautifully spiced. One of my dining companion had a tasty-looking fish kebab dish and my other companion said his minced lamb dish was very good. Definitely... More
