From reading reviews I was anxious to try their buffet. Some said best Indian restaurant in St Louis. Sorry to say that it was less than average. Food was somewhat bland for an Indian restaurant. I read the staff was very welcoming and friendly but really didn't feel that. Kinda felt like an outsider and could not understand what might... More

Restaurant opens at 11:30 a.m. for lunch. staff were very pleasant and helpful. Comfortable dining room with both booths and tables. Pleasant light music played as we sampled the reasonable priced buffet. Nan bread is served at the table. Food items include several vegetarian options. We enjoyed all the items we tried. We've found this restaurant good for the luncheon... More

This is one of the best Indian restaurants in the St Louis area. The staff is always super friendly and their service is excellent for the price point. The food is very flavorful and spiced per your request on ordered meals. The lunch buffet is also fabulous!

We eat here often. It's one of our favorite date night stops. I have eaten at many different Indian restaurants and this is by far the best. The staff is wonderful and always helpful when explaining the menu items and amazingly polite and sweet. I have never had anything here I didn't like. I love this place. I wish I... More

My wife and I discovered Saffron several years ago. It was the first Indian restaurant we had ever tried. We were immediately hooked! The food is incredible, the service is always professional and friendly. The lunch buffets are a great value. We don't care for super spicy and they will prepare the food to our (mild) taste. I must admit... More

I just love this place. I have been many times and i dont even think about going anywhere else. The staff is so friendly and courteous. I have the lamb...either the Korma or Rogan Josh. My wife always has the Chicken Madras. The Naan is so good that we get extra so we can make breakfast sandwiches the next day.... More

My wife and I stopped here yesterday for the buffet and it was pretty good. Had all of the main items; tandori chicken, naan, chicken tikki, etc plus the best rice pudding I have had in an Indian restaurant. Cost was $11.50, not bad for a full buffet. The customer service was not the best, but sometimes restaurants have bad... More

I do not know how this place is still in business - the customer service is terrible. I repeat TERRIBLE. The manager is extremely rude and disrespectful to customers. I went in for the lunch buffet yesterday. After finishing my first plate of food, in which I left a couple half eaten pieces of chicken, the server (whom I didn't... More

We came in from DC, where the Indian cuisine is spotty. My 3.5 year old and 1.5 year old, along with two other generations of family, feasted on Saffron's host of lamb, beef, and chicken dishes. Fresh and flavorful.
