I really like the pineapple fried rice with chicken, However, the reason I say "just Ok" is that when you order in to pick up through the drive thru the person who brings it to the window always expects a tip. I had this happen last two times I visited the place. The total was $18.15, I gave her a... More

Love eating at Saffron for both lunch and dinner. Such a comfortable environment for visiting with a friend or a business lunch/dinner. Servers are great and attentive. Food is superb! Try the Saffron Toast, Chicken Pad Thai, and their sushi creations!! Can't wait to return!

This is one of my favorite places to grab sushi! Great atmosphere, service, and food. If you don't like sushi the pad thai is delicious. The saffron toast and the crispy rangoon are great choices from the appetizer menu. A few of my favorite rolls include the fried dragon, st. louis, rainbow and of course you can never go wrong...

I stopped here for lunch one day when in the mood for Thai. I was glad I did! The service was great, the atmosphere was great and the food super good! I had pad Thai with chicken. It was a really classy place.

So far everything we've had here has been very good! The Saffron Pad Thai is not too spicy and is delicious with added chicken. Egg rolls and Rangoons are very good too. Service was friendly and quick. We went about 5 p.m. the second time we went and it wasn't very crowded so we were seated immediately. First time we... More

I really like this restaurant. The staff is friendly, the atmosphere is appropriate, the food is great. I had the drunken noodles (pad key maow), a Philadelphia roll, and a, raspberry iced tea. They made their own blend of raspberry flavor so the drink was crafted in house. The sushi roll was fresh and delicious. The drunken noodles were perfectly... More

Food tastes great. Menu items rotate every few months. Unless you eat there once a week, you won't get bored with their selectino. Their sushi is the best in town.

We stopped here for lunch while driving down I-55. Really good Thai food (better than anything where I live) in a pleasant, upscale location. Nothing not to like.

I always get the fried rice with chicken. It's always cooked to perfection. This is our favorite restaurant to go to when we want something more upscale. I also recommend the rangoons and the fried ice cream. The food is worth the higher price tag.

Thank Jezzie B
