The food here is excellent - a bit pricey as take out for one was almost $40. Small, tasty, hearty portions - everything fresh. Try it!

Thanks for your kind words and feedback. The chef chooses the entree items for the lunch thali daily and includes lamb one or two days a week. We'll try to make it hotter next time.

Description
Saffron Indian Grill offers a taste of Indian street food as well as classic and modern takes on regional cuisine. For lunch enjoy an Indian Thali, round tray with small bowls filled with appetizer, entrees, salad, rice, bread and dessert or a lighter take with a Pav Burger or Naanwich and fries, ready in minutes of your call or arrival. Dinner is relaxing and filled with tastes and smells of the exotic spices and herbs of India. Try a selection from our wine and beer list, carefully chosen from all over the world. The dining room is contemporary, casual, and comfortable with padded banquettes and visually striking with a dramatic mural, mirrors, walnut table tops all coming together in a sociable neighborhood dining atmosphere. We are committed to a healthy menu with regular specials and irregular, pleasantly surprising events.
