We usually go for the lunch buffet, as it is a good selection of the Indian dishes we love. They usually change out some of the buffet items, so we can try new dishes. The price is reasonable, and the assortment is always good. Usually...More

I rarely like buffets but Saffron never disappoints. Great variety of foods and service is top notch. Don't like buffets? The menu is incredible as well.

The food was excellent from the app to the entree to the tea. Service was a little slow and relaxed, but not enough an issue to hurt an otherwise wonderful visit at an odd mid-afternoon time. Highly recommend eating at Saffron Indian Bistro.
