Mr. Bhatti and his chef designed Saffron Grill's menu with inspiration from their own culinary experiences. By staying true to the core of recipes that have been passed on to them, they have been able to maintain authenticity while creating unique flavor profiles and stimulating presentations.

He is responsible for the interior design of the restaurant, which combines traditional Indian décor with sophistication and contemporary style to create an environment that accurately reflects and supports Saffron Grill's innovative menu.
