We love eating Indian cuisine but they are expensive relative to other type of cuisines. We dropped by Saffron the other day as the smell of the food attracted me to dine in.
Setting and atmosphere was very nice.
When we sat down, the waitress ADVISED us to not order items on the menu as it was going to be more expensive than eating at the buffet. Buffet was about $18 per person, and 1 item on the menu was already $14 (expect a small portion) so you will need to order additional items.
We proceeded to take a look at the buffet (this was around 6:30 pm - prime dinner time). It was not at all appealing. There were only 2 pieces of chicken in one of the trays, the other trays were fairly empty and from the looks of it just had sauce. It looked like leftovers from a party. Was not impressed at all.
We settled for butter chicken however to our surprising, the order DID NOT come with rice? What the..? Usually there is either Naan or rice but nothing. We had to pay an extra $3.50 for rice? We went to several Indian restaurants and there was either Naan or at least rice served with the dish!! Ridiculous! We ended up settling for the buffet instead.
Food was ok, nothing spectacular. Just did not like the bait & switch technique. The food was so expensive if you ordered single items that you somewhat have your arm twisted to order the buffet style dining.
Frankly, I would NOT come here again.
