There are two kinds of Indian food...home cooked or over-priced fancy restaurant cuisine. This is most definitely home cooked and really damn good. What a treat to have Saffron Grill in a neighborhood full of over-priced groovy restaurants with long lines. It is clear the locals appreciate it as the take out business was as brisk as the table service... More

While small in area, the taste and quality of the food at Saffron Grill isn't. Amazing dishes, including wonderful desserts. Generous portions of Tandoori prawns, Chicken Masala and Vindaloo were seasoned perfectly, nan and roti perfect accompaniments and plenty of leftovers for lunch. Love that you can eat there or carry out and that it's nestled in a lovely, quiet... More

Very reasonable portions and prices. Service and food quality were excellent. We also enjoyed eavesdropping on our neighbor's conversation about where in the world to live next.

We were just wandering past and decided to stop for dinner. It was incredible food. We lived in India for a few months last year, so we are fairly picky about our food. This was top notch! Service was great. Staff was very friendly. We will go back!

Loved this cozy Indian restaurant in Nopa. I especially liked the chicken tikka masala. We wolfed everything down with some Indian beer.

Just had a look at the menu when some locals recommended to go there as they loved it and went there"all the time". Well it's nothing pretentious, but the food is really good. You can scale how spicy you want your dinner on a scale of 1 to 10... And spice was pretty accurate! Wine is very nice and pretty... More

We ran into this gem, literally. We turned down a side street (upon a quest to find food), to sit and fix a shoe, and look at the map on the phone. When we looked up we saw this place and thought why not. We were so very glad we stopped!!! The food was great! I had curry chicken with... More
