Had my birthday dinner here 3/24/13. Saffron has taken a new name - Raaga. I'm not why the name change. It was our first visit to this restaurant and we are not aficionados of Indian food but wanted a new taste experience. The waitress was very good and managed the kitchen. She was very knowledgeable despite not being Indian herself. She helped describe some of the preparations and spices to us with ease. We found the food very delicious. The interior was nicely decorated with two-person tables lining the outer edges of the room and a large table in the middle under an elaborate gazebo type structure. The small tables were a bit close together and this became an issue when a couple who reeked of cigarettes sat next to us. The husband was also loud and boorish. Service was a bit slow but we were there at 7pm so it was pretty full. The wine we selected was very nice but quite expensive at $11/glass. All in all we had a nice time. We loved the food but not the price.

I have eaten Indian food all over the US and this place is not your usual Indian restaurant, Saffron is nicely decorated, service is good, and the food is way above average. Prices are a bit above average but so is the food. I discovered it by accident and now eat there often.

We chose Raaga because we wanted a good meal at an "early" hour before a 7:00pm show. Our waiter was very attentive to our schedule, as well as to a request for gluten-free options. The wine list is wonderful, and again the waiter courteous and knowledgable. The appetizers and food were wonderful - we'll be back - and back - to try more of the menu.

What a wonderful treat. This is truly a great restaurant. I enjoy Indian food, but I cannot say that I have it often. This was truly spectacular. I cannot truly recount what we ordered since we had the waiter select for us. Our party of four sampled everything that arrived. Big smiles and happy stomachs. This is a place you cannot afford to miss. When in Chapel Hill try them out. You will be rewarded with a great time.
