Like Indian food? Think you'd like to try Idian food? This is the place to go. Order off the menu or try their outstanding buffet. Everything is delicious and well-prepared. The all you can eat buffet does not stint on quality. The premises are well appointed, spotlessly clean, and attractive.

And my husband had the Chicken Malabar and raved... More

I love this place, and return there often. The food is fresh and flavorful, the owner is friendly and concerned for the customer, and they are very careful about gluten cross contamination.

I am generally not a fan of Indian food, but this meal was very nice. Not being familiar we asked for the most popular app and 2 meals. I had chicken and wife had lamb. Huge portions, with plenty for another meal.

Love that they will spice up a dish just right! When I can't dine in, I have also done the take out. This is a hidden treasure here in Tucson.

We've been to Saffron Bistro for lunch as well as dinner. It's always delicious. For lunch they have a buffet that is great and very reasonably priced. I look forward to the next time we go.

Had their weekend buffet lunch - great price @ $10 per person - but the quality of the food was a disappointment. Although the restaurant seemed to be quite popular with a steady stream of customers, none of the dishes I sampled had an authentic taste. The tandoori chicken was obviously colored (besides being cold), the butter chicken and a... More
