Don’t get turned off by Saffron Tiger’s cafeteria style of service. It’s a local restaurant that’s fast in the sense that you order quickly, but this is classic Indian cuisine, prepared the traditional way. There’s plenty of vegetable-based and vegetarian choices—golden lentil soup is a standout, and don’t pass on the paneer dishes. For meat eaters, the goat curry (made with local, kosher meat) is as decadent as any dish you’ll find anywhere, served in a brown gravy that’s full of disintegrated potatoes and the occasional green fleck of fresh herbs. Mmmm ... goat gravy. (Alibi Staff, December 23, 2010)
