Reviews for Cafe Saffron

I wanted to try this place for the first time but I didn't because of whoever answered the phone (I think it's the owner based on the reviews here). I couldn't understand what he was saying at all, and when I had asked him to repeat himself, he was very rude about it. I understand that there is a language barrier but this guy was yelling at me on the phone, and was like "what else do you want huh?" All I was thinking of is you lost a customer due to this horrible customer full review
Despite our language barrier, I managed to get home with some beef, lamb, and chicken kabob over saffron rice. Lots and lots of tzatziki sauce. It was divine. I ordered two things I didn't get and I believe it was the language difficulty. I did go in early in the day, and he may be the main cook who comes in early or something, not expecting to deal with many customers. We'll be back, because next time I want some hummus, I want more pita, and I would love to have some baklava.
Small Mom & Pop restaurant. Probably seats 15 people. Most of their business seems to be to go orders. Lovely Persian menu. They also cater. During the pandemic it's a 1 place we can go to that we know won't be crowded and people are masked. They have always served their menu items on disposable plates, cups and utensils. Soft drinks either canned or fountain are available for drinks. Pre-pandemic they had tea, but haven't had it available since the pandemic. The food is delicious.
