The restaurant is spacious area with tables spread out, so it has just the right acoustics for a private conversation without any shouting. Service was a little slow to start but then right on and friendly. The menu items have an explanation for every dish which is extremely helpful. We had appetizers and main dishes both meat and vegetarian. All... More

Food is excellent. All very good. Buffet during day is great bargain. Love everything about this place. Reasonable prices too. Hidden in back but well worth the find.

We went to their buffet on a Sunday afternoon. Not to sound like a redneck, but you know you are in a good Indian restaurant when most of the diners are actually Indian. I tried each and every item offered in the buffet and their was not a single one I didn't like. The flavors and spices were luscious and... More

We had just been on a Ballon ride with above the clouds. Which was fantastic. And we decided we would go for dinner locally. I used trip advisor to find Saffron. It's a large restaurant with ample parking. The food was as good as our local Indian " cinnamon " We shared a pakora starter then I had chicken tikka... More

Kind service but not intrusive. We usually go for the buffet that has a lot of different plates and a desert. The food is delicious with goat, chicken, vegetarian plates. There is also a soup and dessert. All you can eat. Highly recommended.

I've been to,Saffron several times recently. The weekend lunch buffet (until 2:30) is especially good- a broad collection of Indian dishes- chicken, lamb, vegetarian. The highlight last week was a dish consisting of deep fried spinach leaves dipped in chick pea flour- wonderful crispy delicacy. Entirely comparable to Citrus on the other side of Orange County, with many unique characteristics,... More

Went there for a health care lecture-dinner. Service was very good - attentive and polite. Food was a help yourself buffet with many meat, shrimp and vegetarian choices. Food was good - not great.

Great place. Great service. I always go for the lunch buffet, which is daily. I like to taste different dishes. I didn't give 5 stars because they usually have the same dishes when I go. This could be because that's what is served on those days? Not sure, but food is always great.

What a jewel in the middle of a very non descript shopping mall! The food is wonderfully prepared, the buffet has excellent variety and the price is so reasonable. I asked for a glass of Chardonnay and was served an upscale wine at house wine prices. The server was very attentive. You will not be disappointed!
