My wife and I visited Saffron of Chapel Hill in December of 2011 with a restaurant.com coupon we'd been looking forward to using. We were not disappointed. We went for the whole experience: appetizers, drinks, two courses, and dessert. Everything was brought out in perfect time and just as it was ready to be presented. We've had some restaurants lately bring the appetizers just minutes before the main course, so we're a little on our guard for that. Saffron's staff did it masterfully. We had time to enjoy and digest each course before the next came, and we left with some for later!
I'm not much of a spicy food eater, and I recommend you ask the server how spicy a dish is. I came close to ordering "the hottest thing on the menu," and would not have been able to take it, based on what I ended up ordering. The food was delicious, the drinks were high quality, and the service was impeccable. If you have any interest in samping Indian cuisine, this is a great place to start.
