Horrible service by owner – The hostesses were very sweet. However, once greeted by the owner (who waited on us), things headed downhill fast. My guest merely asked for a substitution (on a simple dish) and was rudely answered by the owner/waiter. I have never been so embarassed or ashamed for suggesting this place. I am extremely displeased after being so rudely treated. We left, and I will never return. There are many other Indian places worth trying out in the area. This is definitely the worst restaurant service I have ever experienced.
Best dining experience – I had a very good time in this restaurant. The food was delicios, for example, Malabar Chicken Curry an Chicken Tikka Massala. The service was excelent, very friendly and charmy waiters. I cannot forget the about the big variety of wines and oriental music that make the best atmosphere.
WORST PLACE I EVER BEEN TO – TO BEGIN WITH PARKING PROBLEM. TOOK LONG TIME TO BE SEATED. THE SERVER WAS MEAN. EVEN MANAGER HAD SAME ATTITUDE. FOOD WAS NOT UP TO STANDRAD.
CHEAP WINES ANT HIGH PRICES. BAD WILL NOT RECCOMEND TO ANYBODY. RATHER GO TO INDIA PALACE.
Can get much better food and service at a much cheaper rate elsewhere – If you want to lose weight - both of your body and bank balance, then this is the restaurant you must eat at. The so-called "favorite" chilly chicken would give you a serious case of diarheaa. Its made with hot sause (found in Chinese restaurants) and sprinkled with raw onions unlike the traditional way of cooking it with bell peppers, tomatoes and onions. Its Mulligatwny soup is a disaster and tastes like un-spiced, unsalted dal (lentil soup). Moreover, the dishes are seriously overpriced. The service is also not worth mentioning as the waiter not only misplaces your order but talks back at you. Last but not the least, do not take coupons issued by this restaurant as they add a 18% gratuity to your bill if you show them the coupon, something which is not mentioned in the restaurant-issued coupon. They probably think that their customers would be poor in math and won't be able to see through their little scheme. In short, this is one restaurant I would never recommend to anybody.
best tikka masala in the world – I never taste someting more better then the tikka masala at The saffron House.....is delicious. I have it with a Kingfisher beer and was awsome .I Highly Recommended this place for a taste of INDIAN CUISINE .Every body was really friendlly with me and my best friend , and the service was fast and friendlly.
Indian eatery on Belt Line offers fiery flavor in traditional dishes. – In Short
Muted red and orange colors and authentic Indian themes greet patrons at this hidden Indian eatery on a popular restaurant row. Prompt seating and attentive service is the standard. Each table has fresh naan, cracked-pepper flatbread, and dipping sauce. The menu offers a large selection of Indian food. For spice try any of the curry dishes or the machili mirch tikka--a marinated fillet of salmon with a paste of tandoori spices.
Most expensive cheap wine I ever had. – We had lunch at this restaurant this was our second time and first time after the new ownership. The food was good and we enjoyed it but with the exception of that everything was average.
Service: Service was average at best. Bread was brought to our table even after we had told the server that we would like to have some wine before eating and off-course it was cold when it was time to eat. We bought a bottle of wine after the first time it was poured had to ask server to bring it back out for another pour because they had to keep it in a refrigerator so it will stay chilled.
Prices: Well this is where it get really outrageous. Price for food was perfectly fine but the price for the bottle of wine we paid was $42.00 that can be bought for $7.00 at supermarket. I completely understand the concept of markup for profit but there pricing seemed more like concept of gouging. As per there concept bottle of Dom will cost close to $800.00.
just ok – Well lets start with the appetizers: We had Vegetable Samosa which were a spicy but a little dry and less than flavorful. We then sampled the Kebab Rolls, which were the highlight of the meal. They were very tasty with a nice blend of flavors. For the main course we ordered several things:Bhindi Masala-way to salty for our taste. The Chicken Tikka was overcooked, thus dry. The Lamb Vindaloo was nice and spicy the way it should bebut too spicy for the faint heart (so skip this one if you don't like lots of heat from spice.) We also had the Saffron House Assorted Bread Basket. The Naan was a nice pairing with the spicy flavors of the Vindaloo.
The restaurant was clean but the atmosphere was not particularly intimate or cozy. The gentleman that we assumed to be the manager stood close guard over our waitress' service, which was somewhat distracting from the overall meal.
Overall, while the food wasn't terrible, it is not a place that I would seek out for a night out on the town.
