Tried Saffron for the first time the other night. Appetizers were good, had the appetizer sampler. Samosa was really good as well the other items on the plate. Dinner was outstanding

Our favorite restaurant on the entire East Coast! Kunal always suggests new dishes for us to try and we love them. Exceptional flavors and spices give all the food layers of flavor. Kudos to the chef!!

Loved our experience. Staff was very quick to service and meal was above my expectations. My only (small) complaint was indoor temp. Make sure to bring a sweater. We were very cold inside.

We love Indian food so this was a nice surprise on a Saturday evening. Delicious food, the wait staff was wonderful. Be careful of their Bullet naan, green peppers don't always mean bell peppers.

Saffron is a good neighborhood Indian restaurant - one of the better ones in Orlando. My meal was excellent but the spice level of my husband's choice was way higher than promised. He asked for zero spice level but was unable to enjoy or finish his meal. If you like it hot, you won't be disappointed :-)

While a lot of Indian restaurants seem to have similar tasting food (to my uneducated palate), this seemed to be a cut above, and with some interesting menu components. More importantly, service was differentiated by a real interest in the diner, with follow-up from several staff members and actual responsiveness. That alone puts it in the upper tier of restaurants in this category.

Food and service was excellent. Noise level is high because all surfaces in the restaurant are hard (floor, walls and ceiling).

Once again, Saffron was great; although we made a reservation, they seated when we arrived.
timing of meal was great... i.e. not the appetizer coming at the same time as main course. Dishes were prepared as ordered... but i will warn the hot is REALLY hot...Great value- we took home enough for another meal.
and this is worth the drive- it takes us 30-45 minutes each way but we are always glad we did the drive

Excellent chef excellent food, excellent service. Ask for Kunal , manager , who will give his recommendations on the food .
Now I understand why there is always a line to get in when you do not have a reservation.
You would be foolish not to try this place

The food at Saffron was good, but the ambiance and service were not. Normally, the wait staff is good, but our waiter was terrible; he seemed to have other things to do vs. caring about us. On a Friday night, it's like a zoo, noisy and crowded. Don't try to go if you don't have a red. If you do and go, you can't carry on a convo cuz it's too loud. We used to really like this place, but it's popularity is too much for us.

The food was OK-ish. Asked for the food to be pretty spicy and it came out with no spice. I asked for hot sauce later in the meal, which the waiter brought and said, "Oh, I thought you couldn't handle it so I didn't order it spicy." Seriously?

The Palak Paneer was tasteless and had so much tumeric in it the sauce felt grainy. The chicken makhani was pretty good but the prevalent taste was tomato. Same thing for our appetizer...this actually felt like they rolled the chicken in tomato paste. There was none of the flavor development that you expect in Indian cusine. Super disappointing. Don't go here if you want good Indian food.

Far and away, the best Indian restaurant I've been to so far in central Florida. The chicken Tikka (dry) is a delicacy - a very tricky dish to cook right and not overdo. They prepare it perfectly here.

Found this place in April of this year, drove to Orlando just to come back to this restaurant for our anniversary.
Food is great, servers are great, can't say enough about this place.
It's a must if you are in the Orlando area.
