The Saffron House was established in 2003 by Ms. Supriya Reddy and Mr. Gautam Prakash. They intended the guests to enjoy not only the cuisine of India but also the culture. The decor of the restaurant reflects this vision.
In 2003 The Saffron House was a small boutique restaurant that provided their customers with a leisurely fine dining experience.
In August 2005 Ms. Reddy returned to India and The Saffron House was taken over by Mr. George Samuel and Mr. Probodh Arora.
Since then The Saffron House has grown into a restaurant that has become well known in the Dallas/Forth Worth area for its quality food and service.
Not only is The Saffron House known for its fine dining but with over twenty years of catering experience they are well qualified to cater and host private parties, special events, wedding receptions, graduation parties, reheasal dinners, arrangetram dinners, anniversary celebraions, baby showers and holiday celebrations to name a few.
The hospitality of Indians is legendary and we follow three Sanskrit words "Athithi Devo Bhava" meaning "Our Guest Is Blessed, Our Visitor Is God". We, the Saffron House Team believe and take pride in that philosophy.
Authentic Indian Cuisine
The repertoire of exotic Indian cuisine is vast and has evolved over centuries. India has a great diversity of people, culture, language, climate and religion making its cuisine equally diverse and exciting. Indian cuisine has also been influenced by the Aryan settlers, the Arab and Chinese traders and conquerors such as the Persians, Mongolians, Turks, the British and the Portuguese. The Saffron House menu has a variety of Muglai dishes that were influenced by the Persians. It is the cuisine of royalty, and may use as many as 12 spices in a single dish including the most expensive of them - saffron, cardamom, cinnamon and cloves. We have lamb kebabs laced with spices and rice pilafs cooked with meat turned into mouth watering biryanis. Try some of our hot and spicy Vindaloo dishes that were influenced by the Portuguese who introduced tomatoes, potatoes and chillies to India. Conclude your meal with a hot cup of tea made popular by the British.
There exist no written recipes in India and our master chefs design meals to suite your taste buds. Because each dish is unique, created specifically for each of our guests with the time-honored traditions of fine Indian cuisine, we appreciate your patience while we perfect your meal.
Spices are an integral part of Indian food but this does not mean that Indian dishes are always hot. It does mean that they are well seasoned and aromatic. Our chefs have a mastery over the properties of spices and how they are blended. We use cooling spices as well as warming spices, bland spices as well as pungent spices, sweet spices as well as hot spices. We also use spices for color and healthful properties.
The Saffron House uses only the freshest ingredients, We flavor our dishes with combinations of onion, garlic, ginger, coriander, cumin, kalonji, turmeric, cayenne, black pepper, mustard seed, cardamom, cinnamon, nutmeg, tamarind, fennel, bay leaf, clove, fenugreek, peanuts, coconut, almonds, raisins, saffron, star anise, kevda water, rosewater, ghee (clarified butter), vegetable oil, and yogurt.
Enjoy your meal and savor dishes that have been spiced to perfection: some flavorfully mild, some warmer and spicier, some full of the scorching heat of the Indian plains, some intricately sweet and tempting, and all designed to delight with their harmony of complementary tastes. Should you require assistance, our servers will gladly guide you through the menu and assist you in selecting a fine combination of flavors. Each dish is prepared to individual order; please feel free to request milder or hotter flavoring, according to your tastes, and please inform your server of any special dietary requirements.
