Very friendly and helpful staff who care about our dining experience! The food was amazing and enough to take home for a second helping. Everything is made fresh and the spice levels were perfect for us. We will definitely be returning!

Very clean space! Great food - very flavorful! I like spice, so I would say this was mild/medium spicy on the spice level for me personally. Everything was cooked well and the naan is made fresh. The service was quick and the portions are a great deal for what you pay. I got the paneer and it was everything I wanted for lunch. I’ll be making this place my go to for Indian for lunch.

The food is really good. It looks like a fast food place but the taste and time to get your order is closer to a regular restaurant.

Saffron Indian Cafe is inviting and cozy, creating a welcoming atmosphere for guests to relax and savor their dining experience. The staff is attentive, friendly, and helpful. Most importantly, the food is delicious and the spice has the right amount of kick if that is what you seek in your meal. I absolutely LOVED the Chicken Chettinad Sauce, and the Chicken Korma, I recommend both. Do keep in mind that the venue is a bit smaller. All though there is seating, it's more of a pick up and go environment.

I enjoyed my trip to Saffron. My friends and I have visited most of the Indian restaurants around town and this was really good. I tried the Chicken 65 and my friend had the Chicken Masala. Both had a good amount of spice and flavor. The restaurant was fairly busy, but we didn’t have to wait very long for our food. 😃 I’m looking forward to visiting them again.

Food was so good and the store manager was super nice and friendly! We tried paneer tikka masala(medium), butter chicken(mild) with mango lassi and garlic naan. All are 10 out of 10! Glad to find a good authentic Indian food in a walkable distance from campus! Must try :)

Got the veggie express combo, which had great flavor, spice, and a nice variety of items. It was also a good value with a lot of food for 11.99
