The food we ordered was very delicious. The staff member took time to explain about the food and they were very friendly. I and my friends would love to go back once again.

Discovered this place during covid, so all my orders have been takeout. Online ordering was a miss, I couldn't figure it out and had better luck phoning in my order. Typical order always contains nan and butter chicken and the family loves those. We have...gotten a few of the veggie options including Malai kofta and some of the paneers and they haven't disappointed. So much flavour, and great portions. We have not been fans of the samoas, but maybe that was due to everything else being so good. I have loved the pakora each time we order.More

My wife and I are very regular customers to Saffron and there has never been a disappointment. The food is always absolutely delicious. During the pandemic ordering takeout and arriving home within 15 min, the food is as hot as when dining in. Bought a...$10 insulated food takeout bag. There isn’t just one favourite dish, love the flavour and quality of everything. The awesome leadership from chef Kuldeep to the friendly and hospitable staff just makes for an unforgettable experience. Hands down best Indian cuisine in the Region! Thank you and always look forward to our next takeout order OR hopefully soon dine in visit!More

Toronto's Gerrard Street (Little India), is normally our go-to for Indian food, especially vegan and South Indian. Living in South-Western Ontario affords less good options in this regard. And then we found Saffron! I had visited earlier to confirm the vegan options, and staff was...very helpful. We chose to risk eating in during the pandemic, as we liked the precautions being taken, and felt well-protected. The result - an absolutely fantastic meal!!! There is nothing spectacular about the inside; there is a nice bar, lots of comfortable booths, larger tables, and space for single eaters, if required, which is always nice to see. And who doesn't want to watch Bollywood movies on the tv screens? There was also a steady pick-up of meals, a good sign of quality for an Indian restaurant. Service was excellent, and we had no concerns about vegan options, as the server was very knowledgeable. To start, we absolutely loved the pakoras (unbelievably fresh and crisp), and Aloo Tikki (mini fried potato with chana masala). We then chose three mains - Aloo Gobi, Channa Masala, and the prize of them all, Veg Jalfrezi. Mains come with either basmati rice (oiled with cumin, and not as good as we had hoped), or naan. We also ordered some extra naan, minus the butter, and they were warm and mouth-watering. The spice levels were absolutely perfect. Prices are very reasonable, and much cheaper than some of the local competitors. We even ordered extra naan for home. Three people ate brilliantly, there was food left over for the next day, and our bill was under $70.00, without any alcohol. We have no doubt that meat eaters can find good options based on the flavours we experienced. Support a great local restaurant, in-person or take-out, and enjoy amazing flavours. We will be back!More
