We stopped in on a whim. We had a great dinner each dish that we sampled was delicious. Dosa was never available at any other Indian restaurant, what a great dish! Can't wait to return.

Saffron is a storefront Asian eatery on Butler, the central street in Ambler. Up the next block is the wonderful indie cinema. I had a tasty appetizer, one from a nice selection of Indian finger food.

We've been there perhaps 20 times since they opened. And will be back.' Go for their specials - typically delicious and not found elsewhere. Always a place where we meet neighbors and have a fun time. One of our go-to places in Ambler.

Yes, I'm pretty certain it still is. We've eaten at Saffron in different locations a number of times during the years. BYOB was always permitted.
