The wife and I darted in here for lunch without our two usual cling-ons ( kids ) and really enjoyed ourselves. It was 1pm and pretty much all the tables were taken, the waitress quickly cleaned and wiped down ( with proper cleaning solution out of a spray bottle no less ) our table.
The buffet lunch was very well stocked with a dozen hot items, chicken, beef, rice, vegetables, samosas. The cold side had two desserts ( I think it was two as I always skip dessert ), chick peas, a salad akin to Greek, cold broccoli, cut up fruit salad, and some more items. Let's just leave it as a good selection for both hot and cold sides.
The Mrs. went to Mezbaan last week and commented that in terms of food flavour, restaurant decor, food variety, and value Saffron hands down is a much superior Indian restaurant. I myself haven't had Indian food for quite some time and was throughly satisfied with our lunch.
The waitresses were reliable when it came to filling our water glasses and taking away our dirty plates. The only table seated outside, a group of six guys, were seen trying to flag down a server a few times; we were not ignored whatsoever. The servers weren't chatty at all, more of an efficient team of women whose goals were to feed, water, clean, bill, set tables, nothing wrong with this. It was lunch and I suspect dinner service is more personal.
The room was clean with tables quite close to each other and no partitions. Not really a place for a quite business meeting, more of a casual dining room. Interestingly through the back you could get pizza from the same kitchen making our luch. The room adjoining our dining room was setup as a pizza joint; trying to reel in those not into Indian food I guess.
This restaurant is a great value at only $11.95. Enjoy!
