I have eaten here a number of times now and enjoyed the food, service and ambiance more than any other Indian restaurant I've ever been to. I felt so confident in this restaurant that I finally talked my son-in-law from England into trying it!! After 12 years in the states he said he finally found a proper Indian restaurant! Being from England and being that Indian food is his favorite, I think that is a great compliment! Keep up the superb work Saffron!
VOTE SHER-E-PUNJAB #1 RESTAURANT IN THE CITY OF TUCSON!!!!!!!! IT DESERVES IT!!!:)
-sher-e-punjab is an amazing place, the service was wonderful it might not look big and fancy but once you order one of there dishes the appearence of the building doesnt matter the naan bread is unlike anything ive ever ate before the aroma of the dishes still remains in my noise til now,the tenduri chicken is very flavorfull try it!!,and i love how you can hear them play indian music softly in the background who ever says they dont appreciate the great dishes that this place brings seriously doesnt know what good food is and shoudnt even be critiking negative comments because they are not true !!,, sher-e-punjab the greatest restaraunt to have ever been open in the cityof tucson..
The service is always great!!!!! The owner is friendly and the food is excellent! We have been going to the Indian Oven for the last 13 years, and our boys just love this wonderful, tasty, well-prepared food. There is nothing like a whole-hearty meal with meat, rice, and vegetables! We highly recommend
it to your family.
Been going to this restaurant for years. Excellent food. Great ambience. Lunch buffet is a
This is my favorite food ! My husband and I have been having lunch at the buffet every weekend for 10 years. Yummy.
Service was great, the server was a delightful and conversational woman. The buffet lunch was fantastic. I am a vegetarian so I stuck with the vegetarian items. Samosas were great, fluffy, and flavorful. The curries had a wonderful taste. I have never been to India Oven for dinner, but hope to in the future. I would recommend this place to anyone.
I found Saffron's food excellent. Value for money as well as quality on par w/ my experiences back home in the UK and Mother India herself. My only suggestion is to skip the buffett and order from the menu.
The service was fast the food was excellent, not expensive but we were to only ones there. Help rescue this gem.
After having spent a good amount of time traveling across India I would like to think of myself as picky when it comes to Indian food. I would say that the vegetarian dishes at Ghandis's are as authentic and delicious as I have had anywhere in the world. I highly recommend the Shahi Panner and the Malai Kofta. Their cream based curries are so good that my friend form Bombay said it tastes her grandma's cooking!!
**I would agree that their buffet is disappointing and not even close to on par with their dinner menu. So don't judge by the Buffet!!
I can honestly say that I have eaten at EVERY Indian food joint in Tucson and the food here is on par with the best of them. What makes this place different is that it is clean. My other favorite place has food that is just as good, but I worry what happens behind the scenes in the kitchen.
I found Saffron to be representative of proper Indian cookery. Admittedly, the buffet was OK, being aimed at an inquisitive, yet, uninitiated visitors. The real treats, however, are to be found by ordering off of the menu. Saffron's lamb Korma took me back to the days of watching my Mom and Grandma cooking Indian-inspired Indonesian fare. The smells of garlic, tumeric, bay, lemon grass and varied curries wafting from the kitchen was borderline intoxicating. Saffron's Owner and Kitchen staff know what they are doing.
BEST FOOD, BEST SERVICE, BEST PRICE. All the people that rave about Gandhi's either don't know indian cuisine, or they haven't eaten at Sher-E-Punjab.....leaps and bounds above the rest in town.
This place is amazing!! I have been to many other Indian restaurants and this one is by far the BOMB!!!! LOVE IT!
I moved to SE Arizona in 2007 and immediately starting looking for a first-class Indian restaurant. I believe that I have eaten at at least 75% of the Indian restaurants in Tucson and the surrounding area.
Simply put, Saffron Indian Bistro is the best Indian restaurant I have eaten at in Tucson, bar none. Nothing else even comes close. The sauces are exquisite, the meats are cooked to perfection, the rice is perfect, and the selection is broad. I have eaten at Saffron on at least 20 different occasions and have never had a meal that was less than excellent. The service has ranged from very good to excellent.
The owner of the Indian grocers where I get my supplies for home told me it is the only Indian restaurant that he will take his wife to.
I've eaten in fine Indian restaurants in NYC, London and other major cities in the US and Europe. Saffron holds there own against them and is among the five best Indian restaurants I have ever eaten in.
The food here is better than most of the other more expensive Indian joints around town.
I concur on the lunch buffet - truly outstanding! The whole menu is budget priced without compromise in quality. The staff are a bit surly but,nevertheless, attentive. You must check it out if you like Indian fare.
New management and maybe chefs. Not as good as in the past.
Not close to the best in town, but the most expensive asian. Bland.
