Great choice for family. We are a family of four and we loved the buffet. We choose the buffet so we could 'try a little of everything.' My kids loved the chicken tikka and coconut chicken. I enjoyed several dishes ( can't remember names). The wait staff is very friendly. My wife and I sat and enjoyed quite conversation after... More

Very good Indian food, especially if you like spicy. We started with their complimentary pita chips and mint salsa.... excellent. The came the appetizer, Gobi Munchurian, $10, and the heat began. Fried cauliflower, with a spicy red sauce. We had an order of Garlic Naan, $3.50, and I'd say unremarkable. I had the Lamb Kerla Pepper, $17.50. And my spouse... More

Recently I went to Saffron Indian Bistro with three other friends in Town Center, and let me tell you, it was a great experience! Walking in, I saw a very beautiful bar display, wall decorations, and seating. The atmosphere was very elegant, but wasn’t so fancy that if you showed up underdressed you would still be comfortable. The lights were... More

Our family was there for lunch for my daughters 30th birthday, it was her choice to eat there for something new. Well, it seemed like we were being ignored or overlooked. Waited patiently to get our menus while the waiter just assumed we were there for the buffet (we weren't). It wasn't too busy and with so many waiters walking... More

Great place to try and eat curry. Took friends to try the food and they were happy with the choices. Korma is not spicy at all, everything else is rated 1-5, 5 being most spiciest. Lamb Tikka Massala was fantastic.

I used to live across the street from here. I loved it, I would eat here at least once a week. Everything is great and authentic. Garlic naan bread to the salmon I wish I have you next to me now.

On a recommendation from locals, we stopped at Saffron for lunch. I was disappointed with the pakora (tiny little balls of mush) but the chicken korma and na'an made up for it.We ordered off the menu even though there is a buffet. The buffet is located in a small corner and seems more like an afterthought. The prices were a... More

Excellent food and service. Was here on a Friday night about 6pm, and not busy at all. This is about 2 blocks from the hustle and bustle of Town Center so not far, and totally worth it.

I went for lunch, I had been years ago and it was good. There was a good variety of food but every dish was oversalted. I'm not sensitive to salt but it was so heavy it covered the taste of the food. The nann was great. Now the service was dreadful. I had a pile of dished on my table... More
