Sapphire was not our first choice. We were headed to Mid Atlantic Seafood when a detour in route 1 prevented us from getting to it. After getting out of route one traffic we ended up on route 197 and remembered hearing about Sapphires. So we...More

We've been going to Sapphire for many years now (surprised I never reviewed it earlier) for three reasons. First, it is located near Montpelier Cultural Arts Center, so it is convenient whenever we go a concert at the Center. Second, there are no other options...More

The menu boasts both Thai and Indian but we stuck to the latter. We had a large selection of dishes and they were all very good. Tandoori Chicken, sag paneer (spinach with cheese), a spicy lamb dish, all very good as was the specialty bread....More

We went here with our family for New Year's Eve. They had an extensive Indian buffet set up with terrific voices. What they also had, that I usually don't see at other buffets are little cracker snacks, and a variety of sauces. Their stir fried...More

We were looking for an Indian restaurant closer to home, and tried this one. They had a buffet and thought that would give us an idea of their menu items. Very very good, plus a good selection of vegetarian menu items, which was great since...More

I have been at Sapphire both for lunch and dinner. The latter is more expensive than the quality of the food would warrant and will not review it here. It is best to visit at lunchtime and on the early side of the lunch hour,...More

Was driving around determined to try a well reviewed trip advisor restaurant. Stopped by and was pleasantly surprised with a dinner buffet. At $15 it would be hard to beat for a Saturday night. The first thing I tried was the tandoori chicken, although it...More
