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

Located in a rather non-descript plaza on North Oracle, at the complete opposite end from Kohl's, one could easily miss Saffron. I highly recommend that you do not. Inside you will find a modern motif, a friendly wait staff, and great food. I chose the Mumbai Aloo from their extensive vegetarian menu, as well as an order of Naan bread.... More

I visited for dinner with my family and I liked the Interiors very much, clean, peaceful and high in infrastructure quality. I waited for 10 minutes before someone came to our place to take the order, and it took another 10-15 mins to get the order on table. I was expecting the food to be as good as the place,... More
