I visited Saffron Indian Bistro during Sept 2018 for dinner. They serve yummy Indian food. There are limited options in the menu yet sufficient to choose from. I found most of them delightful.

Will certainly consider for my upcoming trip to Bay area.

Here slightly by accident as we were heading to a sports bar next door, now closed down!!

So we decided to give it a go, and were very glad we did. Great selection of beer, poppadom to start with, good selection of curry's to choose from and we had a very enjoyable election of main courses, rices and naan breads which all made up for our lack of a sports bar and a burger.

Good service and a reasonable bill all made up to be an experience that I'd be happy to repeat!

Enjoyed a splendid dinner on our second visit in six months to this very special San Carlos Indian top class restaurant with its attentive and professional wait staff and spotless interior. We enjoyed minty lemonades and ordered onion bhaji and paani poor semolina puffs. For the main delights we choose lamb seekh kebab, tandoori marinated grilled shrimp, chicken tikka kabob and butternut squash coconut curry. We all shared our dishes which gave us the opportunity to taste four different entrees which is always a great delight, especially serving a small lamb kebab portion and adding the a dash of sauce from the chicken dish allowed for some creative cross fusion dishes - but don’t tell the chef! A very satisfying experience and one I would go back to again and again!
