The décor breaks away from the clichéd interiors associated with Indian cuisine restaurants as it translates authentic Indian cuisine into a stylish, contemporary setting with warm and one on one service. On the menu are dishes from North India – recipes from the Mughal courts, the walled city of Delhi, the cuisine of the Nawabs of Lucknow, the pulsating zests of Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh and the scrumptious cuisine of Kashmir. As you begin to wait for your food to arrive a good idea is to dig into the papads and variety of chutneys on the table. For starters, Executive Chef Sandeep Kalra highly recommends the 'Galouti Kabab' on 'Peshawari Naan', a perfect blend of aromatic and robust spices, done to perfection. Vegetarians too have a sizable choice with 'Hara Kabab', 'Tandoori Soy Malai Tikka' and would love the 'Dahi Ke Kabab', which is homemade yoghurt hung in muslin, spices and rolled as patties, filled with tomato relish. The mixed breads in a basket are a sensible option for variety, and just the thing to wipe the savoury curry gravy off your plates and especially go well with the 'Lal Maas' and 'Murgh Begum Pasanda. Your meal remains incomplete without a heavenly helping of the dessert offered, try the 'Gulab Jamun Jalebi' and 'Kulfi'! The dishes here are a fry cry from the usual butter, and ghee-laden food one associates Indian cuisine with.
So where do you go to for your once-in-a-while curry fix? Every hot blooded Indian foodie has at least one good North-Indian eatery in their kitty, which brings them home in style. Where do you go to for a piping hot bowl of spicy creamy curry to dunk your flaky buttery naan in? If you are on lookout for a canâ€™t-beat-that recommendation, then you have finally come to the right place. We will take you to this spectacular dining spot that is tremendously popular in the gastronomy circuit for its mind-blowing curries. Drive down to Trident hotel, Gurgaon this weekend and head over to their curry joyride â€˜Saffronâ€™, a fine dining experience that refines this wonderful cuisine. Saffron is Tridentâ€™s glorified North-Indian restaurant excelling in traditional recipes handpicked from all over the country and prepared authentically.
Trident in a luxurious glamourous property which extends its sophistication into Saffron. DÃ©cor of Saffron is quite eye-catching, with striking dark furnishings giving it a very modern touch. The room is spacious and closely filled with small square formal tables. They have played the dÃ©cor with tones of orange and black, an unusual combination but a striking one. A cluster of golden pillars are the only indication towards the traditional aspect of the restaurant. One canâ€™t help but be mesmerized by the beauty and elegance of such intense looking dÃ©cor. The restaurant is a quite expensive one so the clientele is limited and filtered. Mostly you will find affluent families, corporates, in-house guests, tourists and die-hard foodies as their most loyal guests. Live Indian classical music organized by the management does a lot to elevate your dining experience.
If you want to celebrate a special occasion then let them know beforehand. The staff is most helpful and polite. Service is as expected of a five star establishment, smooth and professional. Economy sake, opt for their thali. Not only it will be budget-friendly but itâ€™s lavish as well. Their superb North-Indian menu opens with the starters like, Rajasthani lal boti kebab, dahi ke kebab, pasanda kebab, tandoori paneer tikka, bhuttey aur methi ki seekh, saffron tangdi kebab, hara kebab and patrani macchi. Pick their bohri biryani or a basket of assorted Indian breads to mop up the curries. They prepare a heady range of delicious mouth-watering curries, each one better than the other. For the sweet finish go for the paan ice cream. Itâ€™s innovatively refreshing!
