Liked the old location better, but enjoyed the food here always. Great service and full selection of Indian cuisine. Nice buffet.

We have dined at Saffron Patch for 10 or 15 years - can't really remember. Been there at least 100 times in the old place and the new one across the parking lot. We have tapered off in recent years. The decor was nicer in the old location, the buffet had more entree rotations, and the wait-staff was more polite.... More

In a word, underwhelming. First time dining here since they moved across the parking lot, and I had the lunch buffet. There were three vegetarian entrees, chicken tikka and tandoori chicken. Dessert was limited to fruit salad and the dough balls in syrup. So selection variety was average. Unfortunately I have to drop my rating because of the flavor of... More

I have been religiously dining at Saffron Patch for the last 5 years at least 3 times a month. Only because of the food. The service has been on a steady decline the last few years but I continued to go there because the food is good thinking it's ok I'm not a high maintenance guy and don't really care... More

The food here is amazing! I'm especially fond of the Kashmiri naan and crave the stuff of it's been a while since I've had it. I love their chicken saag: it's so flavorful and juicy! They give so much per serving that I always have leftovers for lunch!

I have to say this is one of my favorite resturants. I love the food here. It's always hot and fresh with a nice selection. The environment is nice and inviting. Great for families, couples and singles. The service is great. Servers are friendly and always keep the drinks filled and hot naan coming. I've been here several times during... More

The staff is friendly and decor is pleasant. The food is prepared to order so they can make adjustments regarding spice. We ordered ours "INDIAN SPICY" and were pleased with the taste. The price is far higher than most Indian and Napoli fare in the area

I've always heard that Indian food is pretty spicy, so I was hesitant to try it for the first time. But I was with a group, and they encouraged me to give it a go, and so I did, and it was an excellent decision! The restaurant lets you choose your spice level from 1 to 5, with 5 being... More

5 adults and 5 children all received well on Mother's Day! We misunderstood their hours, but they still served us even though they were 'closed'. The food was EXCELLENT and the staff was even better! Be careful if you like spicy food. A level 3 is quite hot!
