This has definitely become one of my go-to Indian food places. They cook the meat just right - moist and full of flavor.

We ordered the tandoori chicken, chicken tikka masala, paneer tikka, and lamb saag. Everything was fantastic. I have not had paneer tikka before and it has definitely become a regular dish I order. I think the only improvement that could have been made was the freshness of the naan, but the food itself was so good, it will not affect my review. full review
We recently moved to Lafayette and I was so excited to try all the restaurants in the area. I just made a basic order on Doordash from  Saffron
I am so sad to report my disappointment. The food was tasteless, with no flavour and put together in a hurry.  The chicken tikka masala sauce tasted like it came from a can. The lamb vindaloo was tough and flavourless and the Biryani tasted raw, they dumped some frozen vegetables from a bag right into half cooled rice. Insulting! full review

Fantastic Indian food served by a lovely family.  Amazing Chicken Vindaloo, Chicken Tikka Masala, yellow daal, bindhi, Chana masala - you literally can't go wrong.  (And, I'm British so very discerning about my Indian food!). Grab a takeaway soon.  You'll love it.  And when restaurants open up again, make a reservation.  We always have so much fun there.  Great atmosphere to add to the phenomenal food!
