Given that it’s the spices that deliver the trademark Indian flavors that transport us to a foreign land, Saffron seems an apt moniker indeed.

The kitchen delivers elevated versions of Indian staples—tandoori, tikki masala, vindaloo and the rest—along with a variety of breads and biryani, chutneys and mint lassis. And the lunch buffet lets you sample a little bit of everything—and there’s nothing wrong with that.
