The service was bad- bordering on rude. The food was average. I ordered chicken tikka Marsala and garlic Naan. The Nasn bread had the consistency and taste of a European pancake. The curry was bland. Chicken tough. The wine we ordered didn’t come until half...More

Our friend whom we meet on Thursdays enjoys the variety of authentic Indian delicacies they offer during their lunch buffet! This is by far the best place that serves naan bread that’s warm & toasty—always a great complement to their dishes!

Having spent time in Japan (where Nepalese and North Indian food is all the rage) and India (where Indian food is just called “food”), I’m pretty picky about Indian restaurants. Saffron serves enjoyable food with a wide array of spices and textures. They are, perhaps,...More

First time I have been to this restaurant and my wife and I will definitely be coming back. Food is HOT as you requested. They ask you how hot 1 to 5. Love this place.

Met a friend for lunch. Wait staff was fairly attentive. Buffet was varied and vegetarian dishes were noted. I'm not an Indian food expert...this was mildly spicy so don't worry about too much heat. A complement of sauces and desserts rounded out the buffet.

Mid-week dinner here was a quiet affair. We had no trouble getting seated or served, and there are no complaints whatsoever about the location, the atmosphere, or the service. We ordered a number of Indian dishes. Our server asked us to rate the requested level...More

My friend and I were here today for their $11 lunch buffet. Unfortunately, our experience was not positive. None of the waiters cared to interact or smile. They took forever to get us more naan, and even longer to refill water glasses. Buffet trays, especially...More
