Saffron has some great food on the regular menu. The lunch buffet has a very good selection of dishes. I also like the welcoming, modern atmosphere.

First, I was surprised with the ambiance. High ceilings, spacious seating in a nicely updated restaurant. Then the food was very tasty and creative--sauces were superb. A fair amount of choices, freshly added to by the all over it owner. Server was polite and friendly, BEST SURPRISE $8.50 for lunch. I will be back. Can not vouch for dinner.

I have an upcoming trip to India so my wife and I wanted to go taste India food. We were pleasantly surprised at the wonderfully complex taste of Indian food. Every bite you could identify a different spice. We chose the medium spicy versions and it wasn't too spicy, we might go for the high spicy version next time. Waiter... More

Saffron Bistro is definitely one of the classiest Indian restaurants I've ever been in. We are huge fans of Indian food and have tried most of the Indian restaurants in Tucson and a huge number of restaurants in India on a recent 2-month trip. Saffron's decor is very modern - not one photo of the Taj anywhere! The buffet is... More

My husband, son and I love trying different ethnic foods. Saffron Indian Bistro was excellent! We had Chicken Tikka Masala, Vindaloo, Biryani, and garlic naan. The sauces in the Masala and Vindaloo were delicious. Service was very good. I highly recommend this restaurant.

We met another couple here on a Thursday night, the place was excellent, we each order something different and were all happy with the order and recommendations of our waiter. First time here. It is on my top five in Tucson list. I am a Native of Tucson too. I had the Grill...... will be back soon.

Very accommodating restaurant to your special needs. Had 1 person in the family, who had some food allergies. Called 5 different restaurants to see if they could help. They all didn't even make an attempt to accommodate the request. At last this was the only restaurant, that came to rescue. Great food and amazing staff, drove 20 miles from the... More

We have been here a few nights. This was to be a special dinner. The curry chicken was amazing and the shrimp appetizer was just right. I think they put in new chairs from the last time i was there. Much nicer. The owner came by to ask if we enjoyed our dinner. We had. It is crisp and clean... More

There's something that gives Saffron an almost fast-food feel but it's certainly not the food! I think it may be the noise level or the tables but regardless the cuisine is delicious! Naan was spot on which you'd expect in a tandoor oven. I had the chicken korma and basmati which was creamy and very tasty. I ordered medium but... More

Everything about Saffron is excellent: the food, service & atmosphere! My husband & I took our family there so were a bit nervous since we had said how good it is. Everyone agreed how good the food was. We celebrated my birthday & the waiter brought a free almond ice cream with a candle & it was delish! After dinner... More
