Was on business day today and ran late so thought I'd give this spot a try. Heard good things about it from others but never had the chance to eat there mostly because wife is not a fan of this cuisine. However I was not to be tied down on my visit night! Pleasant and clean. Tile floors (not carpet)... More

We had dinner there this past Sunday night. It was awful. No flavor at all. higher prices than most Indian restaurants, which would have been ok if the food wasn't almost entirely tasteless. Thee was a bad flavor that sort of seeped thorough the flavorless, overcooked dishes. Even the make up rice pudding they brought me was sicky sweet, and... More

We eat here either as take our or eat in. Have never been disappointed, nor do I ever expect to be. My wife may request something mild vs. Me who likes spicy, and rhe request is met with dispatch. Monday and Tuesday is with the Sirar player which certainly adds to the ambience. Frankly, I think SaffRon is by far... More

My friend had the shrimp korma which was very good but mild spice. I had the lamb vindaloo ($11.00) which was good but I asked for medium heat and it was mild. Décor was nice.... More

Excellent food. Tell them when ordering the food how spicy you would like your food on a scale of 1 (no spice)- 10 (very spicy). One time I felt adventurous and told them to make it a 9 for all the dishes. If it weren't for the raita, my tongue would have been scorched. My family started to laugh when... More
