I usually get the great buffet at $10. Lots of choices. Today I tried one of their saffron & chicken, vegetables, and rice dishes -- a house special. I wish it had had more saffron in it. I really couldn't taste it. It was good but I think I will go back to the buffet as it is a good... More

We saw this restaurant and as a lover of Indian food we stopped. They have a buffet but we skipped that . Had chicken vindo moderate spice with a bread. The bread was very tasty. As for the food spot on. Well spiced fresh

The service and food was EXCELLENT. It was genuine Indian, not American Indian. EVERYTHING we ordered was PERFECT and we also scored $5 martinis!!!! Although the prices were a little bit above average, the service, atmosphere and overall quality made it very good value for money.

Being a misplaced Brit I like to think that I know good Indian food and this place has it. Great portion sizes and lots of flavours. I can't remember the last time I had a curry that was this good. And the chicken was obviously good quality. Sometimes I feel restaurants use all the spices and sauces to 'hide' poorer... More

We have eaten at Saffron several times and never been disappointed. The restaurant is nicely appointed and serves delicious Indian cuisine. It also has full bar service. Highly recommended.

We love this restaurant and visit is several times a year. The food is terrific and the prices are quite reasonable. The staff is consistently helpful and very well informed about the differences between the dishes. They can also accommodate groups.

This restaurant is very attractive and upscale. The prices are reasonable. Our server was excellent. My only complaint is that when you are owed change, and it is a larger amount, bring it. One of the servers said we round up. Well if you owe me 10cents fine but when you owe me 50 cents give it to me. If... More

We stopped in for lunch and decided on the buffet. The buffet had a nice selection of items and we both enjoyed the curry. While we were there, a constant stream of customers kept coming the door. The staff did a great job of keeping the buffet full of food items as the numbers on patrons increased. Will go back... More
