We have eaten Indian food all over the US, and we eat it frequently. This is some of the best, most inventive, most flavorful and distinctly different Indian food that we have tried. The service was great, and the meal was really memorable. Skip the fish and chips for a night and come here instead.

Arrived at 8.40pm (restaurant close at 10pm). They were cleaning and we feel we were not really welcome to arrive now.
Order: Arrived at 20:40 on a Sunday, they told us they would take everything at the same time because the kitchens close at 9pm (It was write 10pm on the website but why not, it did not bother us as much). We was very surprised to see a couple arrrived at 9.30pm... We asked for the drinks card because not taken with it. The guy was still unkind.
Entrance: Plates and dishes burning but the guy did not warn. 2 poor samoussa (we wanted to share and we did but it was almost painful to share that... we expected at least 3 or 4).
Dish: Far too spicy despite the request that we did not want too spicy (marked on the menu, we can ask for less spicy). Ask to redo it because not edible and just adding A LOT OF cream. Very little to eat in both traditional dish (some piece of mutton and chicken with a lot of sauce) and burning. The 2 courses of rice were consistent but dry and still very very (too) burning.
Payment: my card did not work the first time and it clearly and openly bored to try again (no excuses). We finally tried again with another waiter and it worked.
Conclusion: We will NEVER come back. In Cashel, we prefer to go to Brian Boru right across the street which is a very good bar with excellent meat cooked and cheaper or at M Ryan which is a very decent restaurant for a few euros more. We will test the Thai restaurant next time but never again here. Nothing good to say sorry... I could say it was clean... It should because the guy almost sweep under our feet while we was eating....

We found the food at Saffron to be excellent. If you order before 7.00pm that have an early bird menu at a reduced price. Service was good and the staff were very friendly.

The service was friendly and comepetent. Jawad was a great waiter.
The food was delicious a mix of Bangladeshi Balti cusinie and NW Indian food.
1/2 bottles of wine are served which is a reasonable option.
Food is reasonably priced - but US visitors have t bear a small premium with the Euro exchange rate - note Saffron does not control global foreign exchange rates.
A nice option was side dishes were available which allowed us to try a larger variety of dishes in smaller portions.
We had Chicken Balti, saag paneer and they created a vegetarian only version of chicken tikka spicy.
Big picture windows with lots of light and downtown location
