We were glad we got past the exterior to find that the food was very good, service was excellent. It's not that this is located in a strip mall, it's that the outside is very shabby (uneven pavement, long-unpainted exterior wood, lots of curtains hung rather randomly). A little attention to this detail would enhance the appeal greatly.

The restaurant it's small, even though there were almost full we got seated upon arrival, they brought us water however they didn't ask if we wanted anything additional to drink, I guess they assumed we didn't want even though we ordered a mango lassi at the end, the food trays at the buffet were almost empty but the waiters were...

Went here a couple of days ago for the first time. What a nice treat. Unique Indian cuisine with reasonable prices. The garlic naan was excellent. Not doughy like most places. If you're looking for something more than the run of the mill. Check out Saffron. Only one small beef would be that we asked for our food to be... More

Don't let the parking lot at the Playtogs plaza put you off, it's a bit rough, but worth the bounce. On the left, way at the end is Saffron, an Indian restaurant well worth experiencing. We were there for early lunch, they open at 11:30. We were very pleased with the buffet items, so many tasty dishes, unusual spices and... More

The lunch buffet is excellent. Nice variety of yummy food. Several vegetarian options as well as chicken and lamb. Even the dessert is very tasty. Also the place appears to be clean and the waitstaff is courteous. Would highly recommend. Have also done dinner takeout from here which has also been consistently good.

Ordered the Chicken Vinadloo and Naan with dried fruit and nuts. Both were delicious. The Vindaloo here is very spicy and I ordered it extra spicy and it was mouth burning which I was happy with. It also was not in a pool of oil like some Indian food I have had and most of the Indian food I had... More

Having been bought up on some of the best curry houses in Londonds Indian and surrounding area communities, i thought I would struggled to find a curry house in America that would come anywhere near up to standard.

Best Indian buffet ever, food selection is unique, super fresh, and the service and price are first rate, great for vegetarians or tandoori lovers. Non obtrusive bar area.

I have to say that I have only eaten at the buffet and have never ordered off the menu. I have been very pleased eating here every time. Unlike other buffets they keep the food HOT. I believe their food is spiced down for the American palette so you won't be blown away by hot. Variety of meat, veggie dishes.... More
