Description: Saffron is the specialty Indian restaurant at Jaipur Marriott showcasing signature dishes from North India and Hyderabad. Combining flavors from across the Indian subcontinent, a meal at Saffron is a culinary celebration that leaves a lasting impression. The cuisine at Saffron revolves around the three most essential elements of an Indian kitchen – the tandoor, the tawa and the charcoal grill. Guests can enjoy a culinary expedition across a variety of regions and styles. Beginning with signature appetizers like - melt-in-the-mouth Dahi ke kebab, Jhinga lasooni, tender Tandoori murgh, to main course with Subzi ki handi, Dal “Saffron”, Saunfiyani jhinga, Degchi soola murgh, Khade masale ka ghost, guests can enjoy an exotic culinary journey, ending perfectly with a Seetafal ka kheer, or creamy Saffron phirnee. Behind each dish at Saffron, there is supreme expertise in consistently blending delicate spices to bring out the flavour of every ingredient. Adding to the rich aroma, is the warm glow of candles and old fashioned walls that bring an antique look to this paramount restaurant.

Saffron, The contemporary Indian Restaurant at The Marriot opened this Saturday (August 21’ 2011) and being the food lover I am, went for a lavish lunch on Sunday afternoon with husband and a few friends.

I will be very candid, I did not expect too much from the Indian restaurant but this place took me by surprise! I loved the cave like interiors, the wide cherry finished wooden furniture and the poolside view from our corner table. Great place to enjoy a meal and a great time with friends and family!!

Saffron serves Indian and Rajasthani specialties including great kebabs, curries, biryani, variety of Indian breads and some fantastic desserts.

WHAT WE ATE AND MY VERDICT ON THE FOOD:

STARTERS/ ENTREES:
TANDOORI DUM KA PHOOL: This exotic cauliflower starter, marinated for hours in mild spices, curd and a hint of mustard. Verdict: Its a great flavour and the hint of barbeque smoke makes this dish stand out from the other tandoori gobi that I have tried.

GALAUTI KEBAB: Chef Sunil has lived in lucknow and worked there for long enough to know his Galauti. This is by far the best GALAUTI, I have had in a long time. The perfect juicy, succulent, hint of saffron, mace...little sour just a bit of spice...Fab Galuti kebabs. I would like to add here that very few Restaurants in Jaipur have Galauti on the menu. Also unlike the Lucknow Galauti, this isnt made of beef. MUST TRY!!!

TANDOORI FISH TIKKA: Well marinated, juicy and chunky, This tikka was a great light bite.

TANDOORI CHICKEN: Very well done, crispy, smoked and not colored like its dhaaba avatar, the tandoori chicken was a nice change from the regular ones that I have tried. Give it a Try!!

MAIN COURSE:
Laal Maas: Loved it, Loved it, Loved it!!! Not as spicy as the authentic Rajasthani version. This is a more edible version- for all palettes. Have it with The LACHHA PYAAZ (The Tangy Raw Onion Salad) and Tandoori Roti. Would remember the taste for good!!

DEGCHI SOOLA MURG: Ok, I am not exaggerating- but this chicken dish was something I cannot describe. It was just out of this world. The chicken pieces melted into the mouth and seemed as smooth as silk! The texture, the spices, the flavours and taste...MUST TRY, MUST TRY, MUST TRY!!!

PRAWNs (CHEF’s SPECIAL): Do I still need to tell you??? I have never had prawns as tender and juicy as these in Jaipur. This is the prawn that I last got at “AHELI, KOLKATA”. Request the Chef and you might get Lucky!!

CHATPATE ADRAKI AALOO: I wanted some vegetarian dish other than paneer and this aalo was a great change. Tangy, not over spicy, not that oily, a great dish!!

DAAL MAKHNI: Amazing!!! Reminded me a bit of the Daal Bukhara at Bukhara, New Delhi.

BREADS: We tried The Tandoori Roti, Garlic Naan, Stuffed Naan and Butter Naan. I loved the stuffed kulcha and recommend the butter naan (Its different from the regular butter naan, was similar to lachha paratha) and if you are health conscious, then go for the Tandoori Roti.

DESSERT: We tried The Sitaphal Kheer and Saffron Phirni. Not too sweet and a nice dessert after the heavy Food.

OVERALL VERDICT: The Saffron is for sure one of the Best Indian Restaurants in Town. What I loved about the food was that every dish was made in such a manner that with each bite; I could taste and smell each ingredient, not one ingredient overpowered the other, nothing was too spicy and the food was served with so much love that it made this lunch a highly enjoyable one! MUST TRY when in Jaipur.

P.S. FOR NON-INDIANS: Just keep one thing in mind, Indian food is slightly heavy! If you are expecting to eat healthy then stick to salads and not this place. Its like, if I was in Paris and said I find the food heavy coz its got cheese, but then can you cook French cuisine without butter/ olive oil/ cheese???
