If you had asked me about 18 months back, i would have rated these guys at about 2.5 stars on 5....in the last 6 months, they have refreshed their menu including set meal options. The food has gone up a couple of notches in terms of flavor, taste, spice & temperature. They also have kept their ears close to customer... More

I disagree with the reviewer who said the lunch buffet was bad, although she seems to be Indian so maybe can know this more than I or is more critical due to this. I enjoyed the buffet. I can't eat very spice at all so a couple of dishes were a little hot for my taste, but for others they... More

We've moved to TO from an area that was rich in options for Indian food. When we heard about Saffron, we were hopeful that it would be as good as people said it would be. It was excellent. We split 2 dishes and both were excellent. The staff was very nice as well. Great Indian food. Highly recommended!

Some of the dishes are really good like Paneer makhni, cheese naan and bombay aloo to name a few. some are very ordinary like their dal. Buffet is bad but a la carte is manageable. Ambiance to dine in is good although we mostly do take outs and that's good too. Overall good but can be improved a lot more/

I was up in the area attending events at Cal Lutheran and staying at the Palm Garden Hotel. After a day in the sun, a few parents decided not to do any driving and walked over to Saffron Restaurant knowing only that it was an Indian place---what a great surprise. Our whole table loved the Garlic Nan, and I really... More

My daughter and I stopped in for lunch and decided on the buffet. A nice choice of salads and main dishes, meat or vegetarian. I enjoy spicy food, but thought the cauliflower curry dish had too much red chili pepper - overpowered the other good flavors. Otherwise, I was happy with my meal and will consider stopping in again for... More

Wanted an authentic indian taste was left wanting. Ordered Chicken Tika. Such a disappointment. So the watered down version of this dish was probably the worst tika marsala I've ever had. Let's put it in perspective. Sams club sells a better version of what they sold me. The samosas are ok as is the naan bread. The main course should... More

Long to receive the order, in between nothing proposed, just stay and wait. Added sugar in sauces the sure value is the rice.
