Do not Eat Biryani – I went twice to this restaurant. Once we eat roti and veg curry and food is good. Next time i took my brother who visited us in holidays and i tought i would give him some good tasting food. Then we went and ordered biryani's, one veg, chicken and mutton biryani. All of the biryani's are pretty BAD. Rest of the dishes may be good but i didn't tried so i cannot comment. As i am from hyderabad i had a craving for biryani so i ordered it.
Not worth your while and money!!! – Wife was in the mood for Indian cuisine and having tried out other Indian restaurants around Cleveland, Saffron Patch was on our list. Mapquest gave us the wrong directions yet again and when we called the restaurant to ask for directions, the lady at the reception was at a loss...c'mon, every one should know some landmark near to their workplace. This lady was a lame duck at giving directions. All she managed to tell us that they were 5 miles south of I-271 (some direction, that!!). We called again after some searching and, God save us, the same lady answered. After 10 minutes, the good sense of calling someone else, prevailed on her and we managed to find our way to a big office building. If you call persian style carpets on the walls and on the floor a wonderful setting for an Indian restaurant...this is your place (to me it is just an indication that explicitly states "since - we - spent - so - much - money putting - up - these - oriental - carpets - on - the - wall, - we - would - love - to - have - you - pay - through - your - nose - for sub-standard - Indian - fare!!!)
These days they pass off anything as Indian Cuisine...it is criminal the way they drum out fancy names and descriptions on the menu while dishing out food that is bland (mind you, the Naan was burnt!), the undertones of the falvors are the same so you know they are using the same base for almost all the dishes and when u leave a 10% tip, a snooty waitress pounces upon you as you leave the door demanding the mandatory 20% tip (how uncouth!!!)....It makes you wish you could reach into your gut, grab the food and give it back saying...20% plus your food....enjoy!
Great choice for Indian food! – In town on vacation, we tried out this Indian restaurant in an office building. Buffet was small, but had lots of vegetarian choices. The food rivaled some of the best Indian food I've had. Service was also good for a buffet. I would definitely recommend trying out Saffron Patch for their buffet... don't be intimidated by the location!
Your taste buds and your wallet will thank you for finding this Indian eatery, located in the basement of a Chagrin Boulevard office building. – The Scene
The smooth and minimalist d?cor white walls and big windows surround evenly spaced tables each uniformly covered with a white tablecloth have a calming effect over the patrons of the Patch. The Indian element is represented with shelves of eastern woodcarvings, and by sitar music playing quietly in the background. The clientele is randomtables of businessmen rub elbows with a dysfunctional family, which sits next to what is either a blind date or a highly estranged couple.
The Saffron Patch serves what is arguably the best Indian food in Cleveland. For those unfamiliar with Indian cuisine, the menu can prove a bit imposing. Fortunately, the friendly and attentive wait staff is more than willing to help you navigate your way through the Chicken Banjarans and the Tikka Masalasboth of which are remarkably flavorful and perfect with some of their fluffy Naan (you'll have to ask your waiter what that one is).
Nice place for Indian food – Of the places around Cleveland, this has been the most consistent of them all. The food is good and so is the variety
Not the best in town – Food is good, but not as good as others, especially for the prices. No pappadums or rice with many dishes. Service was slow, and they are not prepared for special requests. We walked in once when the sign said Open, but couldn't find anyone to seat us, and no one else was there, so we left. Hard to find the entrance and parking.
