New Experience at Saffron Restaurant

Saffron Restaurant on East Franklin Street has had a face-lift. For the past 30 years 1301 East Franklin Street has gone thru many reincarnations and this one is truly the most colorful and delicious. "It's all about the experience" says Terry Melville, who masterminded the rejuvenation of Saffron n Restaurant along with Saffron's Baleinder Bhupal, better known as Binda to his loyal customers. Vivid n-colored walls and doors of Mango Orange, Kashmiri Hot Pink and Bombay Yellow, trimmed in Peacock Blue replace the formerly drab off-white and brown decor.

The redesigned dining room is more open, yet the new leather-tooled paisley booths create an intimate and cozy setting for quiet conversation while guests enjoy the aroma of classic n spices filling the air.

The new Saffron's Bollywood Bar includes a flat-screen TV playing Bollywood music videos, bringing a glimpse into the wildly eccentric pop culture of today. While enjoying traditional northern n food, diners are entertained by Kajol, the n's hottest beauty singing and dancing with the handsome and multi-talented Shanrukh.
