Saffron Garden


Saffron Garden

Saffron Garden

Located on Skillman Ave between 46th and 47th streets, Saffron Garden has a number of closely arranged tables, but also offers take-out.

Appetizer sauces



This standard appetizer (hard bread with 3 sauces) arrives as soon as you sit down at the table. They did not,

however, bring us any water until we got to order (which took a while).

Overall there was some chaos and confusion going on with the wait staff, as I will explain further down.

Vegetable pakoras

Vegetable pakoras

A few minutes after we made our order, the waiter arrived with these vegetable pakoras, which we did not order. We explained that, but after searching around the restaurant for who did order them with no luck, he gave them to us for free.

They were very good and went along well with the sauces from the appetizer.

Special stuffed naan

Special stuffed naan

An entire section of the extensive menu was devoted to breads, and this, most expensive ($4) item is the Saffron Garden special stuffed naan. It comes topped with pears, cherries, and a variety of other things which I couldn’t quite identify. It was delicious – I am willing to go as far as saying this was the best naan I ever had.

Chicken vindaloo

Chicken vindaloo

I was initially skeptical about this chicken vindaloo ($10) as it looked small and bland, but it definitely wasn’t. The size is a little deceiving, and these metal bowls can hold a lot more thanit would seem.

The rice was nicely mixed in with peas and carrots, and the chicken itself was very good – definitely not buffet style Indian food.

Shrimp briyani

Shrimp briyani

The shrimp briyani ($13) is at the top end of their price scale, and was also of a generous size (although the rice was mixed into this one).

There were five relatively large, fresh shrimp in there.I think seafood is not typical in Indian restaurants, but they definitely pass the test on this one.

Rice pudding

Rice pudding

Lthis restaurant will be perfect.

    Hi all, So the owner say is $5.99 per dish not all you can eat style, some dishes might be $10.99 but we can order it for $5.99 per dish. and we are going to do family style which is everyone order one $5.99 dishes and we will share. There will not be all you can eat style , It will be $5.99 per dish we order no matter what's the original price.

    thank you for understanding!
