“Excellent food and service!”
Reviewed July 25, 2013 via mobile

I'm so happy to have a great Indian restaurant near me. I took my little girls here tonight for dinner and everyone was so pleasant! We were greeted immediately and promptly served our beverages. Our server took the time to chat with my girls (ages 7 and 9) throughout the evening which made them feel included. The food was prepared perfectly keeping my girls in mind (mild on the spices). We will definitely be back!!!

“Very tasty. Spiced just right. I'll be back.”
Reviewed July 8, 2013 via mobile

Friends took me there last night and I was very impressed. I'm not an authority on Indian food or even that familiar with it however I am now a great fan. I got the lamb and chicken vindaloo, because I like very spicy foods, and I was not disappointed. On the spiciness scale, 1 to 5, I picked up four. Next time I think I'll pick of three.

“Best Indian Restaurant EVER!”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

I do a lot of traveling and I always try to eat at different Indian places. Some are dirty, but the food's good or the ambiance is nice, but the food's off. Saffron is amazing in all categories. I live in Illinois, but make the trip if I want Indian food because I've had other STL Indian food and it just cannot compare. I've been there at least 10 times and I've never been disappointed. Actually, once I did have to wait a pretty long time, but it's worth it. I wouldn't go if you're in a hurry. Go, relax, and enjoy the best Indian food you'll probably ever find in the States.

“Authentic with ambience”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

As an Indian, this is the place I would come to eat. Managed well, one of the few Indian establishments which takes care of its ambience and makes you want to eat inside.
