This is a quick, easy meal. The lines go fairly fast, but the parking can be difficult. I try to go before or after the main meal hours. The food is dependable and very tasty. The pad see yew and daily curries are very good.

Don't let Saffron's informal environment fool you, the food they serve is worthy of many, many stars. Husband introduced me to Saffron a few years ago, and he has been a loyal customer since they first opened. Their prices are fair and the food is...More
