Saffron is probably and should be ranked the best Indian fine dining restaurant in Taipei. As an Indian food fan, I've been to a couple of establishments in Taipei but nothing comes close to the taste and authenticity of Saffron. The most important aspect of this restaurant is probably the well trained and amazingly good staff. They are super attentive,... More

We wet to Saffron for dinner and absolutely enjoyed it. We ordered a lamb curry and definitely loved it - so many flavors and delightful on the tongue. We also ordered the grilled mahi mahi and it was also good, but would probably recommend their curry more. They have an Indian chef making dishes inside the restaurant and the staff... More

We entered the restaurant and were seated. As soon as the staff notoced that our Chinese Language is very very poor, the lady boss came to help us. She spoke very good English. She explained everyting and we had a wonderful diner. Espacially nice, besides, the good food, is that one of the two kitchens is an open kitchen, so... More

My daughter wanted to eat Indian so we decided to try Saffron. The restaurant is tastefully decorated. The staff are friendly and very helpful. The vegetarian samosas were yummy. They weren't spicy and it was not oily. We ordered butter and garlic nan. For the main dish we chose chicken tikka masala and butter chicken. Everything was delicious. This is... More

All time favourite Indian restaurant in Taiwan - Taipei, always met my expectations of kicking the taste buds. Not to forget to mention the chef Ranjeet Rawaat was always courteous and prepares a amazing Tandoori chicken and butter chicken.

Fine dining and Indian food is normally an oxymoron but Saffron's team manages to pull it off. The service level, the cutlery, the decoration, definitely give the fine dining feel. We ordered a lot of dishes but the stand out ones for me were - gosht notice kebab, lentil salad, the chilli pakora (part of the vegetable pakora platter), saag... More

I was visiting some friends up in the Tienmu area and they took me to Saffron for dinner. It was one of the best Indian food experiences I've had. I didn't order anything. My friends took care of ordering a number of different dishes and we had a family style shared dinner. It was really amazing and this allowed me... More
