Many times I have given this restaurant the benefit of the doubt but repeatedly the person who answers the phone is rude and will not let a person finish let alone state that they want a mild order. This evening I was forced to order two times the amount of something in order to satisfy their 25 dollar minimum and... More

typical indoor decor for muslim-indian eatery. they really push the buffet. food is spiced for canadians and northeast asians. alcohol selection is basic for diner. staff is helpful enough--polite to your face. nice that they offer a variety of flavourful dishes. ate there on numerous occasions at various times.

Dropped in for dinner and was concerned that there wasn't too many people seated. Don't worry, the place did fill up!! All dishes were very well done and tasty, the naan bread was excellent and the protein portions were quite generous. Overall excellent value!!

We make a point of going to Saffron each time we are in Vancouver/Burnaby. It always satisfies our taste for Indian Cuisine. Everything is good, so try everything. We enjoyed the naan, butter shrimp, chicken korma, and beef vindaloo, shahi paneer, rice pudding (dessert), and mango drink.
