Saffron Indian Cuisine was my first visit to a real Indian restaurant. I've always wondered if Indian restaurants would have a strong curry odor upon entrance, but I was mistaken!
My friend and I arrived for dinner, and there wasn't much people. The waitress was very kind and gave us good seats beside the window. I tried the Saffron combo with the help of the waitress. I am so glad I chose that one, cause I got to try all kinds of dishes (Butter Chicken, Chicken Tikka, Lamb Curry, Lentil Curry, rice, lots of Naan, yogurt (chapati?) dip and Gulab Jamun.
My favourite was the Lamb Curry. The sauce was not too hot, not too mild...just perfect. The texture of the lamb was great, not too chewy and no odour. The Butter Chicken I thought had too much of a tomato taste. Nonetheless delicious. The lentil curry didn't look so good at first, but it was my dip of choice for my naan.
Rice was alright, good as any other saffron rice, naan was gooood.. I really love both Roti and Naan. Definitely try them out! The Gulab Jamun, was ok, I didn't like the texture too much..but you keep eating it...haha.
I think, for someone who is really hungry, just order a bunch of dishes and share, as it seems to have more value. If you just want to try little dishes on your own, this is the plate to order.
Next time, I'm definitely going for the lunch buffet. Cannot Wait!!
