I dined at Saffron Indian Cuisine. I would never ever visit this place again. Samosa Chaat I ordered was spoiled and the lady was very rude. Another customer ordered the same thing and they complained and no apologies to both of us. I do not...recommend this place. Food was awful and terrible customer service. My husband and I got sick. Go at your own risk. This place deserves zero.More

Soooo many fines and warnings issued by the state! What do you expect from a restaurant in a dirty gas station eat at your own risk

Absolutely the best Indian food in the Tampa area. Run don't walk to get here! The entrance to Saffron Indian Cuisine might be a surprise, but don't let that slow you down. The food smelled great as we entered. We decided to have our favorites...for our first dining experience here. We absolutely loved our vegetable samosas, chicken biryani, and chicken tikka masala! You can control the "heat" by selecting mild, medium or hot! We thought we start with medium and that was perfect - it gives you the right amount of heat but all the flavor still comes through on every dish! For something different in naan, we tried the chile naan. Loved it as well. The servings are extremely generous - as a result we had food we were able to take home so we can continue to enjoy the experience.  The owners make you feel as if you have always been friends, they're happy to see you, anxious to share information, and they are delighted to serve you. Just an absolute pleasure to share time with them.  More

Excellent food, mouth watering authentic flavors. The lamb madras is to die for. Impeccable service from a family run business. The only downside for me personally is the restaurant is run out of a convenience store by a Mobil gas station. Hopefully this is a...temporary situation as I’d love to and probably will anyway take out of town guests there.More

We had a family dinner at Saffron Palace. The owner was friendly, helpful and polite. She suggested their fruit juice infused with basil seeds. We ordered guava , lychee and a mango juice. It was out of this world! The food was delicious. We had...curried lamb and 2 vegetarian dishes as well the fresh Naan breads. We had a wonderful evening at Saffron Palace. We will definitely return.More

Saffron is the best Indian Cuisine I’ve had in the USA. Unfortunately, I live over an hour from Saffron’s. So I always call before I go to make sure they will be open. On this particular occasion I called and someone said “Hello” versus introducing...the business name so I asked if I had reached Saffron’s restaurant and the person introduced himself as “Nimeah,“ and he proceeded to tell me that the restaurant was temporarily closed as they were on the hunt for a new location but they were taking care of their customers at a friends restaurant and would be happy to serve us there. All I had to do was let him know when and how many people. So I made arrangements for 10 persons. We arrived 15min before our scheduled time to an empty closed restaurant. I was worried plans had failed, but five minutes later Nimeah shows up with a team of people to include the fabulous cook, his wife. They opened up the doors of the restaurant only for US, Sat us down and we were treated like Indian Royalty!! Delicious, fresh, made to order appetizers soon filled the table. Followed by Naan, and butter and Tandoori chicken, Goat, curry Lamb, and made to order vegan cuisine for my mother. Nimeah shared with us Indian Culture that evening via history, food and dessert, and it was one of the best dining experiences of my life. Some of my family had never been to Saffron’s. I got calls for over a week regarding our meal and I can’t wait to return. Thank You Nimeah and Family for the experience.More

The food is exceptional and the owner is a perfect gentleman. The buffet is plentiful with many chooses and even if there isn't a buffet ordering off the menu will not be a disappointment.
