Re: “Saffron Indian Bistro

My husband and I have been watching Kitchen Nightmares recently and I felt it was our responsibility to let the public know about this place.

He worked there for a few weeks a couple years ago. He quit because he said the place was filthy. He previously worked at Olive Garden for 3 years which has is immaculate I might add. He ended going back to Olive Garden.

When they were showing him around they went inside the walkin in cooler. On the floor was a bin...like a Sterilite bin. Inside this bin was their main sauce that they use. It was not covered at all, just sitting on the floor open to let stuff fly in it. They told him to step over so they could show him stuff. He lost balance while doing so (those things are pretty large) and his foot went in the sauce. He immediately apologized and they were like "Don't worry about it" and continued to use it. His nasty dirty shoe WENT IN THE SAUCE and they STILL USED IT!!!! EW. He also said the kitchen was disgusting. He actually took it upon himself and tried to clean it.

He and the other line cooks would smoke in the walk in cooler. The managers/owners did know about this because he said one time they walked in when they were smoking. The guy was like "Hurry up" He also said they would sometimes join.

Before I even met my husband and knew about this place, many of my friends had gotten food poisoning from this place as well.


I beg of you, please please do not go to this restaurant. I've never eaten there myself and now I never will.

Re: “Teresa's Mosaic Café

Last time I was there, I specifically asked for "no ******" because I am allergic. My food comes, half covered in something that can literally kill me. When I explained this to the server, she took it back to the kitchen and returned within 2 minutes with the same order, with the portion that was covered in ****** now covered in sour cream. The server explained that the kitchen staff refused to make another one and that I should just eat it. My parents, wife, and 2 daughters were with me and the lunch bill was over $100. Their lack of caring, and willingness to get sued is very disconcerting. I'm just glad that I noticed that they covered what I am allergic to before I took a bite...

Re: “The 19th Hole Bar and Grille

This is NOT a brewpub but a motel restaurant/bar. Old folks from Green Valley. Worse now with the Snow Vultures back.

Re: “AliBaba Persian and Mediterranean Restaurant

I'm an army brat and I spent 4 years in Iran so for me this place is comfort food. I haven't found a place in Tucson that does Iranian food well. There is nothing quite like their spices like sumak or saffron infused rice and the various kabob dishes. I was taking a trip down memory lane here. The owner was very friendly with us and the waitress was on top of everything. I don't get the negative reviews above. I found the meal great and the portions were huge.

Re: “Casa Molina

Bad experience ordered the enchiladas de la case huge portion but no sauce. I mean no sauce when I asked for sour cream the waiter started they didn't serve sour cream. So what's up the sauce for the dish is mostly sour cream. Just saying if your out of something don't serve it have assed.

Re: “Saing Thai Cusine

We opted for this restaurant for our Sunday lunch and I am thrilled to have found a diamond in the rough! Since moving here from the Bay Area years ago, we usually wait to eat Thai on our visits back to CA, but not any more. The dishes we chose were nothing short of amazing, including the tofu spring rolls, Gang Garee, and Tom Yum Gai. The crushed peanut sauce for the spring rolls was a delightful nuance to add to the appetizer's appeal. The Gang Garee was an experience that makes me want to get it again next time and yet I'm dying to try the other dishes to see if they have the same complexity of flavors and aromas. Very reasonably priced and served promptly, I only have two words of caution. First, don't be deterred by the appearance of the place itself (very clean and comfortable, just a little plain.) Second, pay attention to the pepper meter on the menu. The Gang Garee is a single pepper rating, but was about as spicy as I can comfortably go, and the Tom Yum Gai is a solid 3 for intensity of spiciness as well as flavor. I can't wait to take our next visitors from out of town!

Re: “Karuna's Thai Plate

The "rude" woman serves as hostess, waitron, and cashier. There's one chef- the owner. Yes, the place is old and icky. They still have the best Thai food in town. Get take-out. Call wa-a-a-a-a-ay ahead. They'll give you the order total over the phone. The food is totally worth it.
