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

Like Indian food? Think you'd like to try Idian food? This is the place to go. Order off the menu or try their outstanding buffet. Everything is delicious and well-prepared. The all you can eat buffet does not stint on quality. The premises are well appointed, spotlessly clean, and attractive.

I love this place, and return there often. The food is fresh and flavorful, the owner is friendly and concerned for the customer, and they are very careful about gluten cross contamination.

I am generally not a fan of Indian food, but this meal was very nice. Not being familiar we asked for the most popular app and 2 meals. I had chicken and wife had lamb. Huge portions, with plenty for another meal.

Thank luvglass
