Located near the alleys by Shin-Kong Mitsukoshi Department Store is Saffran, a place that provides authentic Indian cuisine with great Indian aura. Saffran has an elegant ambiance with lots of trendy and folk-inspired decorations. The owner here is an Indian native and has been doing business in Taiwan for many years. He says that it was his long-term dream to open an authentic Indian restaurant. His wife Sandra adds, "In order to present a finer selection of Indian dishes, Saffran is careful when it comes to choosing the right ingredients. There are close to 80 items on the menu, and they are all being specially chosen, in hopes to introduce more than just family-type cuisine to the guests in Taiwan." --By Josie Wu, translated by Ann Lee

A. Sandra recommends the Jhinga Panaji (NT$390), Elaichi Ka Bhuna Ghost (Lamb flavored with mix of freshly ground white and black cardamons in thick gravy sauce / NT$380), Sag Paneer (NT$270), Tikka Saffron (Chicken marinated in Indian herbs and assorted nut paste, flavored with exotic saffron and finished in clay oven/ NT$380), Gosht Chop (Tender pieces of lamb chop marinated in special Indian herbs, cooked in clay oven/ NT$450), and Mix Vegetables Raita (NT$110). Every dish is cooked with healthy concepts, without the use of excess oil.

B. Saffron brings the clay oven from the kitchen to outdoors, so patrons can watch the chefs cook away. Apart from ordering from the menu, you may also order a la carte or to go.
