An average rating and becoming my "Go To" you say? Yes, it sounds incongrous at first blush, but: A wide range of tasty food, with ingredients one would have to special purchase at home for each occasion and only 45 dollars for two? Is true. The decor is basic, but so is the same as the high priced, no reservations... More

We frequent Saffron for both a good quick lunch or a rich, warm meal. The buffet is $19.95 and has a very small salad bar, Gulab jamun and a nice selection of rice, pakoras, small chees/spinach samosas (the ones on their menu are better) flavourful curried prawns, butter chicken, beef vindaloo, chicken tikka etc. Lovely staff. Small beer selection which... More

This restaurant offers a very good selections of the lunch buffet. The dinner portions are also generous. Chicken or lamb vindaloo are good choices if you like spicy dishes. Also very good vegetarian dishes available. You won't be disappointed.
