  • DaynaThe lamb tagine was literally the best thing I have ever had.

    55555 by Dayna


  • LA B.Lamb BLT is not that exciting - too much bread and a weird sweet and sour flavor throughout. Octopus, however, is pure love

    55555 by LA B.


  • Lee H.The fried cauliflower is supurb. Keep the sauce for pairing with other dishes afterwards.

  •  Deon P.Perfect for Middle Eastern Tourist

  • Brian C.Incredibly flavorful meal. Duck meatball tagine was amazing - could have eaten the sauce as a soup. Great non-alcoholic cocktails too!

  • City Pages Street TeamVoted Best Middle-Eastern Restaurant by City Pages in 2012! With each passing year it is becoming more difficult to imagine a restaurant that even comes close to challenging Saffron.

    55555 by City Pages Street Team


  • City Pages Street TeamVoted City Pages top ten Sandwhiches! Sameh Wadi's Lamb Bacon "BLT" ($9) at Saffron in Minneapolis might win the title for most creative sandwich on this list.

  • Vince B.The grilled octopus was featured in this week's Citypages. I could eat like 10 orders and nothing else lol. It's otherworldly and has an almost heady effect.

    55555 by Vince B.

    55555 by SL
