Saffron Urban Indian Kitchen is a concept Chef Diwesh has been dreaming and planning about for over a decade. His goal was/is to create a space that is inviting, calming & an ambience that compliments his food. We are a "contemporary casual dinning" with a passion for everything hopsitality. Chef Diwesh takes pride in what he serves and his team is equally passionate and dedicated to ensure to match rest of the experience with the amazing food.

While you can find familiar dishes in the main menu, Chef is particular about the ingredients and the overall quality of the food. He is also dedicated to a monthly tasting menu that will be served in the Chef's Table (by rservation only: will be activated early spring).

Special features we want to highlight:
- Chef's Table
- Beautiful Bar (Bombay Bar) area
- Maharaja's Whisky Room (Event room/Whisky Tasting room)
- Beatiful Patio space (to be activated in mid spring)
- Well thoughtout ambience
- Amazing unrushed service/hospitality

    As usual, our experience at Saffron was again delightful. Our server was wonderful, even though she was very busy, as they were a bit short staffed. She was attentive and accurate. Our food was absolutely delicious. The portions were generous and we all took leftovers home!

    We’ve dined here several times in the last few months and have had good experiences, but not this time. The service was very slow. We waited more than an 90 minutes for our meals and 30 minutes for a drink refill to arrive.

    The space was open and inviting. The waitstaff was knowledgeable and attentive. The food, while a bit pricey, was very good. The background jazz music (over the speakers) did not overpower the experience and actually enhanced it. I will be back.

    We arrived on time for reservation and were promptly seated with a window view. Received attention from server very quickly asking about drinks and telling about happy hour. We orders appetizers and a beverage which were delivered quickly and were well prepared. Decided on entrees and some naan, which again arrived in a very timely manner to our table. I feel like there was an overwhelming amount of sauce for the amount of protein in each entree but overall the flavors were delicious. The waitress brought our checks and processed payment right away. That is when I began to be disappointed in our evening. My friend and I do not often get time to visit so we were having a good time catching up. There were no people waiting to be seated and there were several empty tables in the restaurant so I did not feel the need to leave in order for them to turn a table, however it was obvious our waitress felt she was done with us and so did the manager and the rest of the staff because NO ONE offered additional water or refill on beverages once we were done with entrees. This ending to an otherwise delightful meal did not sit well with me.

    Took 40 minutes to get our drinks. Server had to manually type everything into her Toast machine. She said nothing was pre-populated - which is odd because the tip suggestions were sure pre-populated starting at 20%! We were there 2 1/2 hours! Suggestion: Have your servers bring the entire tables drinks/food at the same time. I was finished with my first drink before the rest of the table had theirs. I would do take out from here because the food was really good-but will not dine in.

    Noise level is misleading as we are on the patio very early in the evening. This was our first time dining there and we were very impressed. Our wait person was very good and surpassed my expectations. We will return.
