    Excellent Vegetarian Lunch Box

    Hello, I am a vegetarian and live close by Sapphire. I love getting their lunch vegetarian box for take out or delivery, I have never actually eaten in the restaurant, but the food is spectacular and a great value.

    Authentic Indian, though a tiny bit heavy

    Channa masala, fish tikka, kerala chicken, palace paneer are well done, however they are a bit heavier than homemade food, still, the taste os authentic

    Nice buffet lunch

    Buffet lunch is the way to go here. Many choices at buffet including white meat chicken tandoori, curries, tikka masala, all flavorful and good quality. Veggie options also good. Very nice atmosphere, much nicer than you'd expect for a buffet lunch. Service was attentive. I'd go again.

    Almost Ruined a Perfect Philharmonic Performance

    I ate at Sapphire earlier this evening, and I must say, the food quality is slightly better than that other places, but not by much. And once you factor in poor atmosphere, value, and service, you're in for one annoying meal, my friend. The shrimp appetizer was a joke - it came with FOUR shrimp. And these were not colossal shrimp by any means - these were very standard 21/25 per pound Shop Rite-level shrimp. At $2.25/shrimp, they've got to up the quality and/or quality. The lamb vindaloo was also very skimpy, especially for the $21 asking price. Also, as other reviewers have mentioned, neither rice nor bread is included. The flavor and the cut of the lamb was alright, but does not even come close to warranting the price. In fact, I don't think it would have impressed me even at $11. On the plus side, the Shiraz was a very tasty Californian, which clocked in at $9/glass. Fair enough. Other than fair wine, mediocre food, and exorbitant pricing, Sapphire does deliver in other areas: The atmosphere will feel forced and fake through the actions of an overdressed, undertrained, and most likely underpaid staff. Also, they didn't have the A.C. on in late June, (although, this was arguably done to give diners an "authentic" experience of eating in India). In conclusion, I will never go back.

    Stick to the Buffet

    Like the previous reviewer, I have enjoyed the buffet at Sapphire, even though the waiters act like they're doing you a favor. Even though I work close by, it wasn't until last week that I tried the place for dinner. The room looked more attractive than I remember it in daylight, and the martini was excellent. The food and service were another matter. The entrees were so unattractively served, and my dinner arrived cold. The sauce on the mussels appetizer was spicey and good, but there were only five of the saddest looking mussels I have ever seen (out of their shells)sitting in a lumpy mess. The entrees were no more impressive.What bothered me most was that our waiter never returned to ask if everything was alright. (We actually never saw him again.) Everything about this place is careless. I am willing to pay more for Indian food, but aside from location and decor, this place offers nothing better than the joints on 6th Street (where service is actually considerably better).

    Overpriced.

    I have been to Sapphire several times for the lunch buffet, where I was quite impressed with the atmosphere and the value, even if the service was somewhat lacking. But last night I went for dinner for the first time, and was absolutely shocked by the prices. There is a $25 minimum per person, but with $20+ meals, that isn't hard to reach. Now, I wouldn't have a problem paying these prices for high quality Indian, but the food here is mediocre at best. I've definitely gotten better Indian in the city for almost half the price. What's more is rice isn't even included in your order. Perhaps I've just lived a privileged life up until now, but I've never been to an Indian Restaurant that didn't just give rice with the order. So in short, definitely come for the lunch buffet, but otherwise the food just isn't worth the price.

    Poor service

    Staff is rude. They are always in a rush to take your plates off..even if you are in the middle of eating from it. There is never a trace of smile on the faces of their staff. Not fit for this industry. They should understand that this is service industry and what is required of them. ****. Will never go again.
