We ordered samosas and the "street food" option as appetizers. Delicious. For mains, we ordered baingan bharta, butter chicken, malabar shrimp curry, lamb kebobs and hyderabadi chicken curry. The butter chicken was the only disappointment as the chicken was dry but the other dishes were delicious. Also ordered onion and garlic naan and mango lassis.
I love very clean place with good service. Food is too spicy for request "everything mild"
This restaurant used to be our favorite Indian restaurant for ages. The last couple years, the food has changed. The food is not as tasty as before. Wish they revert back to their original recipes.
Love Saffron Bistro, but we were disappointed to find out they no longer do the dinner buffet on Tuesday nights 😩, only Sunday now. Please bring it back!
We keep coming back to Saffron as our go-to Indian place. We venture further afield, try someplace else, then end up back here and enjoying it. I've had take-out, the buffet and normal dining here. All have been great. The service is pleasant and it is almost always easy to get a table.
Best Indian food yet!! Good service and very pleasant dining overall
We've been eating at Saffron for years and the meals are always very good and the service is very attentive. Our only disappointment is that the menu has been scaled back a lot. They used to serve a variety of fish dishes... all of which were good. They no longer serve fish. We also had some vegetarian favorites that are no longer on the menu.
Saffron used to be our go to Indian place but they changed the menu and raised prices and it is no longer our favorite. They don't even offer tandoori dishes anymore. In their effort to be like all the other new restaurants in this town, they've now downgraded their menu and lost several loyal customers. I'm sure they will still survive since it is the only Indian food in the area.
The food was very good! We had the eggplant which was prepared like babaganoosh (meaning squished rather than in chunks or pieces). It had a lot of ginger but was very good. We also had the butter chicken, samosas and shahi paneer. All were yummy and their nan was very good. Add a Kingfisher beer and you are in business. The wait staff was a little too attentive. Meaning like they removed plates when not everyone was done and they interrupted conversation.
Saffron Bistro convinces with consistent and great food quality and very friendly and attentive service.
Loved the effort on presentation, attentive service, food was good but not amazing, batter a little thick on fried cauliflower, a little too much tomato in butter chicken, too much pepper in Saag Paneer. Solid but needs refinement.
The food was good, but some of the chicken pieces kinda funky meat. It tasted good, but would've liked better meat.
Saffron offers consistently good dishes across the board. They also have one of the best Indian buffets I've been to in the Peninsula.
They've scaled back their menu items quite a bit and I find that disappointing as most dishes are now chicken or vegetarian. They used to offer a really great assortment of fish dishes.
Easily the best Indian food I have ever had. Excellent but not intrusive service, too. A perfect antidote to the rainiest evening of the year.
Flavorful food. Bhindi and paneer were great. Chicken sauce tasted good but the chicken was not. Food was warm not hit. Indian food doesn't taste great unless it's hot.
I'm very cost conscious and I like to get bang for my buck. I've come here twice, and each time I'm in disbelief about what I am paying vs the amount of food I am receiving. Sure, the food is delicious, but $17 for a small dish of curry is beyond me. And $8 for two small samosas? Try to split that between 3 people - it doesn't leave you feeling satisfied.
I also had to repeat my order/questions a couple of times due to some communication barriers - not usually a big deal, but in the end they ended up bringing out the wrong glass of wine anyway. Didn't say anything as we're pretty flexible, but I'm noting it here.
Food was excellent,especially the dahl (lentils) and the tandoori prwns
We had a wonderful experience at Saffron. We went with one other couple and all ordered chicken dishes with wine. The cheese naan bread was divine! As was the Butter Chicken (if you don't mind dark meat). I loved my meal and will definitely return!
This is no ordinary Indian food restaurant. The food is fresh and delicious. You will find some of the usual south Indian dishes on the menu, but they are the best I've had and some not so common dishes. But be warned, it's going to be hard to go from here back to a standard place...
Saffron has been one of our go-to restaurants for many years. My favorite is the (lamb) Rogan Josh, which is always outstanding. We tend to complement that with a chicken or fish dish, which have been uniformly excellent. The appetizers, especially the samosas, are always very tasty. The wine list is not elaborate, but there are good choices at reasonable prices. The service is superlative, attentive but not hovering.
