What a find! This tiny place did not disappoint. The staff couldn't have been nicer- the hostess/waitress asked a diner to move so our party could sit together and he happily acquiesced (thanks, sir!). All the food was fantastic. I don't know the exact dishes...More

Small place, only 8 tables. It was full by the time I left. Very good food. I had the veggie biryani, the saag paneer and the Kabuli nan, all awesome. The saag paneer was one of the best I had, and I almost always order...More

While small in area, the taste and quality of the food at Saffron Grill isn't. Amazing dishes, including wonderful desserts. Generous portions of Tandoori prawns, Chicken Masala and Vindaloo were seasoned perfectly, nan and roti perfect accompaniments and plenty of leftovers for lunch. Love that...More
