Great Food – The food was great! I truly loved it, one of the best Chicken Tikka Masala i have ever eaten. I came across a great deal for Saffron House @ tinyurl(dot)com/3tqcnw8
A WONDERFUL ENDING TO A HORRIBLE DAY – Let me preface all of this by saying, you need to look at my review for FLAVORS as well. I came to Saffron House after my debacle at Flavors and Im SO glad i did. It was the perfect ending to a horrible day. Here goes:
I would like to think that im pretty well versed on Indian food considering I eat it at least once a week (and im Iranian --so its food from my part of the world). That being said, I must say that The Saffron House is by far my favorite after last night. I used to be in love with a place in Irving and a place in Arlington but The Saffron House was better than both. I dont like my food fiery hot and when I told the waitress MILD=MEDIUM i just knew I left the door too open. I was pleasantly surprised when my saag paneer came and it was perfect. It tasted a bit different that what I was used too. Far less grease and a deeper green. The owner came by and explained that the food was more North Indian than what I was used to. He was very personable and inquired about my meal and what I liked/didnt like about the cuisine. I also tried the garlic naan. I usually stick to regular naan but thought id give it a try. Even at my favorite Indian spot in Arlington, the garlic naan is too heavily saturated in garlic to enjoy but TSH got it right! It was wonderful. I dont think it was overpriced at all. Of course the buffet is much cheaper but I got dinner and I got it cooked to the spice level of my choice. I would definitely recommend this place. Oh and its beautiful with an awesome patio! You must check it out. I dont know if Im more happy with the owner making me feel so much better after my issue with Flavors or the fact that the food was absolutely wonderful!
Excellent food, Excellent service – So I had heard this was a good place for the family, which it definitely is, heard it was a good place for a date but my husband isnt that big of a fan of Indian, so they only way I could get someone to come is if I was picking. I took a business client here and it was fabulous. The food is perfect! LOVED the appetizers! They ask how you want your food so my client didnt get too spicy, I got spicy. VERY TASTY. I really liked the chicken tika masala, the one thats creamy. My client was Asian and said that it tasted really authentic. REALLY liked the atmosphere too!
Another plus- the owner of the restuarant was there and happened to start talking to us! He has a great background in hotels/ management, Business- he related really well with my foreign client and me. Really impressed my client on my choice! The girl that served us was really nice too.
The owner even gave us free dessert!!
its not cheap, but its worth the money!
GET AN APPETIZER they are so good!
BEST PLACE TO TAKE A DATE – I have read other reviews that were not that great about this place. THEY WERE WRONG. I took my date here for valentines, hoping for a upscale Indian Restaurant. I love different cultures and find this place to EXEMPLIFY the essence of India. I went to my indian friends wedding and he had catered from here and I LOVED IT. ITS EVEN BETTER AT THE RESTAURANT. There were so many people there but service was still PROMPT and the owner even spoke to us, came to our table and made sure our food was good. I REALLY RECOMMEND the chicken tikka masala and ROGANGOSH. my Girlfriend is veg she really like the GOBI MANCHURIAN. GREAT FOOD, GOOD PRICE, GREAT WINE. with how busy it was today and i still had an AMAZING time without spending too much!
very clever people out there – As they promise, food is not like that . they don't have an extra ordinary food.every other restaurant also has the same quality.When catered they showed alot cleverness while serving drinks.beware of them.......
Great Indian Place! – I love coming here...the food's great...the place has a fine dining atmosphere without the fine dining price. Highly recommend their weekend buffet.
Worst Indian Restaurant ever been to...from food to service!!!! – Well here's how it goes ....went to saffron on saturday night...ordered our food...after 40 minutes of waiting and no food had to ask waiter about how much longer...He hustled and got the food out in 5 mins. Also to note, it was not a busy night...it was just 4 families there including us. Worst food ever....malai kofta did not taste like malai kofta I ever had, not even close. Chicken manchurian....was with no gravy..Well may be it is my own personal experience...but I never had chicken manchurian without gravy in it.. So it was disappointing, we asked if we could talk to manager, coz there was no way we would eat that food. Manager happened to the Owner of tthis place, he tasted our food and said it is perfect and right and his excuse why its so different from other place for each dish "THIS IS HOW WE MAKE IT, THIS IS OUR STYLE", we in simple words there style sux. Also he was the rudest business man I have ever seen. His excuse for taking such a long time for food was: "We had 3 take outs so they were here before you". This was the funniest thing and most embarassing thing for a restaurant owner to say, my girlfriend whose family happens to own 4 Indian restaurants in NJ area told us that on an average days there take outs vary from 50-60 orders every night.
Well to sum it up, unless you want to wait for long time and get worst indian food and then talk to rudest restaurant owner...dont go to this place.
Good thing about the restaurant would be wide range of Menu but that would only be good if all that tastes good...and not "THIS IS HOW WE MAKE IT, THIS IS OUR STYLE".
Not a place for Buffet – We went for lunch buffet and were totally disappointed. Not many dishes on buffet and the fruits were raw and food was ok. There was no veg soup, only one non-veg soup. Just not worth the money. The service was not that great in the begining with dirty plates lying on the tables unattended, until the owner/manager came in.It's ok to try this place but definetely not worth the money.
Not worth it – Having heard about this restaurant from few of my friends in the past made me visit the first time since i came to the city 4 years ago. I was right not to have visited earlier and the visit was first and last. The food was OK not upto the quality for the price offered and quantity was average as well. I admit that the service was alright since they replaced extremely sour tasting mango lassi by adding some sugar and water etc in it.
I have visited one of the more expensive and good indian restaurants in every city like new york , SF, LA, Chicago etc. and most of them lived upto expectations. I had the similar expectation from Saffron House but I was wrong. I still have to find one like that in Dallas area.
