If the name didn't already give it away, you might notice a theme at Saffron Grill—that is, of course, the presence of saffron in just about every dish. Considered one of the world's most precious spices along with cinnamon and Sporty Spice, saffron makes its presence known at this Northgate restaurant through its alluring fragrances and signature yellow-orange hues. It pops up in rice, salads, tandoori chicken, and yes, even half-pound burgers.
That consistent culinary theme is the brainchild of owner Mohammad Bhatti and his chef, who designed the menu by tweaking authentic Indian and Middle Eastern recipes handed down to them. The result: signature butter chicken, garlic naan, and rich coconut curry that coats tofu, lamb, prawns, and paneer. More than 100 types of imported beer—including a dozen on tap—pair perfectly with the well-spiced meals, served amid Saffron's exposed brick columns, golden walls, and Indian artwork.
