I love their dishes. I don't come here as often as I like because I'm still not used to their spicy food. It does remind me of the Indian restaurants I grew up in.

I'll start by saying we're addicted to Indian food and would like to think we have a pretty good palate for picking good places and dishes. SAFFRON obviously put's an effort into their menu, as all the dishes we tried were above average and very very favorable. It was refreshing to find dishes we normally hadn't seen before to try...

After a long time, ate really nice indian food ! we ordered shrimp dum biryani, nehari lamb shank, samosa chat appetizer, pista kulfi dessert, tandoori roti, everything was ordered mild. And that definitely helped. samosa chat is filling and is really meant for 2 people. we feared that we would be too full if we finished it. but no worries.... More

Staff was friendly, if a little unpolished. They don't try to turn the tables over quickly and we were left alone to socialize after the meal, which was nice. The food came out at a reasonable time. Not overpriced. I ordered the Butter Chicken and I will definitely get it again.

Enjoyed a dinner here with a friend on a Friday night. It was not crowded. Wait staff were very nice and helpful with suggestions. It feels very authentic. Food was excellent and the prices were very reasonable. With an appetizer, a main course, and a side of bread, both myself and my friend had enough to take home for another... More

This was excellent when it first opened years ago, but not only has it gone downhill, there are now many other Indian choices in the immediate area. Better options elsewhere.

I have been to #Saffron Morrisville recently and my experience has been great. The food is great and I was really very happy about the service and cleanliness at the restaurant. For those who like veterinarian dis I would recommend trying the Garlic Saag. The Gobi Manchuria is great too.

Visited for the first time for lunch buffet. Nice selection of vegetarian and meat dishes. Some of the best naan and tandoori chicken that I've ever had. Also had a nice carrot dessert that I had not tasted before. Manager told me that the spice level is deliberately kept down for lunch, but for dinner you get a choice. As... More
