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

Went for lunch with a friend. Had the $6.00 Chaat appetizer which was good ( It is like tortillas with sauce and chickpeas served cold). 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

My husband and I were never lovers of Indian food although we went several times with friends to various restaurants offering such fare. We always came away thinking our dinner was OK but not more than that. We recently went with friends to Saffron and were so pleasantly surprised. The food was absolutely terrific. We had different lamb dishes, our... More

I chose this restaurant for its location and for its great reviews. I did not make a reservation for a Friday night dinner for 3, but I would suggest you do so. Nonetheless, my party was seated within 15 to 20 minutes. It is a small restaurant, but he ambiance is nice and comfortable. The parking can be tricky, but... More

Hello everyone. I was invited to dine at Saffron and wasn't sure what to think as I had never eaten Indian food. I did some online research and decided I would try the Chicken Tigga Masala and it was delicious! The saffron rice was delicious as well. I tried the thosai bread and that was good as well.

We get take out at least once a month. It's always hot & super delicious. Our family loves the lamb chops, chicken tikka masala, malai tikka, dal e bahar, and the chickpeas.

We had eaten at Saffron in Ambler a few times and enjoyed it, so when our friends proposed that we meet there last Saturday, we gladly agreed. It's a cozy storefront place, BYOB, where we were greeted by grating Indian music that the staff kindly lowered so we could hear each other without raising our voices. The decor was pleasant...
