All time favourite Indian restaurant in Taiwan - Taipei, always met my expectations of kicking the taste buds. Not to forget to mention the chef Ranjeet Rawaat was always courteous and prepares a amazing Tandoori chicken and butter chicken.

Fine dining and Indian food is normally an oxymoron but Saffron's team manages to pull it off. The service level, the cutlery, the decoration, definitely give the fine dining feel. We ordered a lot of dishes but the stand out ones for me were - gosht notice kebab, lentil salad, the chilli pakora (part of the vegetable pakora platter), saag... More

I was visiting some friends up in the Tienmu area and they took me to Saffron for dinner. It was one of the best Indian food experiences I've had. I didn't order anything. My friends took care of ordering a number of different dishes and we had a family style shared dinner. It was really amazing and this allowed me... More

Last time we visited saffron, we tried the lentil salad. It was like the Indian version of salsa--it was delicious and I'll now order it every time.

This is the only restaurants which serves authentic Indian food. There are so many places in Taipei to have Indian food. The ingredients they use are the best among all the other restaurants. Have been many times and it's been always the best in my list for Indian food.

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.
