Indian
Saffron serves an eclectic mixture of traditional Indian Cuisine punctuated by the flavors of the Himalayas. Our food stand true to its roots and origin while we source most of our produce locally. All dishes, sauces, naans and desserts are made in house from scratch. We are proud to be the first restaurant in Austin with a dedicated Nepalese menu. Nepal is a land of many flavors, while many of its dishes are indigenous and indicative of its culture and people, while few are inspired by its immediate neighbors, India and China. Our Nepalese menu is a thoughtful mix of both.

    Glad we found this restaurant- we love Indian food and find the selections here to be varied and flavorful. We were at the restaurant with two vegan friends so it was nice to have several options for them. My only recommendation would be to fix up the bathrooms and the hallway in that area. The restaurant could use a little decor update but the food is great!

    The food is the ONLY attraction at this Westlake restaurant. I would recommend it ONLY for carry out. The inside is grimy, dark and totally bare bones. The place smelled like a dirty mop.

    We have been on multiple occasions. The food is delicious. Always fresh, well seasoned and generously portioned. The service has always been very good. They genuinely want to ensure you have enjoyed your meal. They have also been very accommodating of my sons nut allergy. I highly recommend Saffron as a great new West Lakes Hills dining option.

    Food is fantastic but the strip mall and the BYOB aspect detract from the 5 star food. If you care about flavors and quality but can live with the marginal ambiance it's a home run.

    The wait staff was very helpful. One in our party loves Indian food, but not too spicy. They prepared it so that all could enjoy. I have eaten there several times and the dishes are always flavorful and well prepared.

    Saffron South is every bit as wonderful as the northern location. Same menu, same great food and service, no corkage fee for us to bring in two bottles, which they served beautifully for us. Five stars on all counts! Also for this new South location, the space that was previously occupied by another Indian restaurant and was dark, dreary and dumpy has been redecorated and is now bright, clean, and pretty, and seems much more open and spacious too. Great venue now!

    Those who have enjoyed Saffron's outlet up on Far West will be pleased to know that the recipes and quality made the trip down MoPac to the new location in Westlake. Everything was spot on, with the Zeera Lamb Bhunna, heretofore untried, a particular standout, as are their Samosas. It's now dangerously close to us!

    Excellent Indian food in Westlake. I was disappointed to see Bombay Grill close, but this new restaurant in the same location satisfies my curry cravings. Great appetizers. The Chicken Tikka Masala is perfectly spiced. Friendly service and a good value as well!

    This is a new location for Saffron in Westlake. The decor is very simple but the many diverse menu items are very classy and unique, especially the Nepalese selections. Each dish was served fresh and hot. Everything was very flavorful with generous portions. The service staff were highly attentive and helpful in making difficult decisions from all the tempting food descriptions. We had never dined at Saffron before and were delighted with the choice.

    Very reasonably priced tasty Indian food that was not overly spicy or hot. The decor is modern and spartan and could use a bit of color, since India is such a colorful country. Maybe some mixed colored bright placemats. The service was good and friendly.

    Some dishes were good. However, the scallop app was not fresh and not flavorful. The chicken tikka masala was quite dry but the sauce was good. Other than the scallop, we liked the seasoning and flavors and spice.
