We had the Mango Lassi, lamb samosas, chicken curry and chicken butter masala. It was all wonderfully delicious. The owner was very nice and ready to describe dishes and provide well thought suggestions. We will be back for sure!

The flavors here are rich, but not overwhelming, and are all prepared by the proprietor's wife, so it is truly "home cooking". The butter chicken is matchless. I have been to the lunch buffet twice and found every dish so delicious that I had a second helping of each!

My wife and I love, absolutely love, coming here to get our Indian Cuisine fix. We always over eat! Buffet is great for lunch! The owner is ever present, hovering around making friendly conversation with the patrons. The staff is attentive with drinks and any needs. I want this place to have more business so they stay open and successful... More

Run! Don’t walk! Nimesh and Sunita Chheda make food glory, and you should partake of it! I don’t know many details about Indian food, except that I’ve eaten it in Atlanta, Brooksville, Port Richey, Palm Harbor, Mountain View, San Francisco, and Tampa near USF … and I’d rather eat at Saffron than anywhere else. Tucked behind a Shell station and... More

We had a craving for Indian food and our search came up with Saffron. It is located in a run down strip mall but the looks are totally deceiving. The food was fabulous. Best butter chicken I've ever tasted, Tikka Masala was spiced perfectly, and the naan bread was delicious. They have an excellent menu with lots of choices that... More

If you can get past this being in a run down strip mall, the food is excellent. From the mango lassy to the curries and samosas, the food is first rate!!
