Saffron is a very nice place and is fairly priced for the amount of food received. The lunch buffet is especially nice with a good variety of food. We enjoy every visit to Saffron.

I would consider myself experienced to Indian, Nepalese and Middle Eastern food since I have lived in that part of the world a few times. This is a really good home base Indian cuisine. I would rate the spiciness as a 3 on a scale of 1 to 10. Which for a lunch buffet makes sense. I prefer 5 to... More

Had a quick lunch at Saffron with colleagues. The place is above notch for a quick lunch, clean and fresh food and significant inflow for Friday lunch. Varieties were not huge compared to other Indian restaurant (my bench mark is the Saffron Tree in downtown Toronto...lovely !!!). However, I'd go there again for sure.

Have been to Saffron multiple times for the exceptinally value packed lunch buffet, yet this time we had dinner at the restaurant. Dishes ordered: chicken tikka masala, goat curry, aloo gobi, naan (plain + garlic) and raita. Dessert was one mango and one pistachio kulfi. The entrees were tastefully prepared with notable distinction in flavors - something that not all... More

We stopped by here after reading the Trip Advisor reviews and we were very impressed with the buffet. We will definitely return, Saffron is a clean restaurant with prompt, welcoming service and fresh, genuine Indian food. Don't be put off by the strip mall setting.

This is some of the best Indian food I have had anywhere. The chicken tika masala in particular is fantastic. It is almost always crowded during regular meal times, particularly with Indian people.
