Visited with friends, we made a reservation and still needed to wait a bit since the restaurant is continuously full. Service is helpful and cordial, excellent food quality (although the whole wheat naan isn't as delicious as the normal one). Special mention deserves the Saffron...More

The Saffron is a pretty good Indian restaurant with a world-class chef. He cooks in front of you. That's not only reassuring, that's beautiful. The restaurant is on the high-end, don't expect to pay NT100 per person. I highly recommend it to those of you...More

Visiting Taipei again we had to go back for our Indian fix. The somosa were just excellent. I had lamb saagwala (again) and the boss had chicken tikka masala (again) and washed down with a nice champagne. Good to Abbie is still controlling the place....More
