The lunch buffet is always fresh and delicious. I appreciate all the vegetarian choices. We can usually be seated quickly at lunchtime and there is plenty of dishes to choose.

Saffron was extremely busy due to Mother's Day. While waiting for our table I noticed every single employee was hustling at all times. Then, when we were seated and went through the buffet, my wife and I judged this to be one of the best...More
