Governor Ron DeSantis issued Executive Order 20-71, directing all restaurants and food establishments within the State of Florida to suspend on-premises food and alcohol consumption for customers.  The establishments may, however, operate their kitchens for the purpose of providing delivery or takeout services.

Saffron is an Indian restaurant located on Sand Lake Road’s “Restaurant Row” owned by restaurateur Sunny Corda.  Sunny has implemented a new contactless pick-up system at Saffron where guest can walk through a partially open door and pick up their order from an assigned table or they can call the restaurant when they have arrived at the parking lot and have their order brought to them in their car.  Free delivery is also available as well.

I had the opportunity to try a few takeout dishes and they were all so good!  The whole time I was eating my food at home I kept thinking to myself, “Indian food is such a blessing.”  It really spoke to my soul!

Naan – a light & fluffy bread.
Chicken Tikka Masala – Chicken tikka, cashew paste, house special tomato gravy. It was seriously delicious.

Kesari Nazarana Vegetable Dinner

Assorted platter with samosa, vegetable cutlet, onion bhajiya and hara bhara kabab in a bed of shredded iceberg lettuce.  This dish made me happy every time I took a bite of it.

Tandoori Chicken

Marinated chicken, spices, herbs in a bed of onions and green peppers.  The marination, spices, and herbs of the chicken was perfection.  Highly recommended!

Overall, the food was quite enjoyable and I will say that Saffron has become my new favorite Indian restaurant in town.  I hope to return soon after the quarantine is over to try some of their other dishes *inside* the restaurant next time.
