A couple of my favorite girls to Saffron.I had never had Indian cuisine before so I was ready to get schooled. The waiters were very attentive and very patient. Questions about the menu were explained to us. I ordered the mango chicken and it was very different in a great way. If youd like Big scallops and chunks of mango... More

Excellent food especially the lunch buffet where you get to sample some really great Indian Cuisine. You can't beat the lunch buffet if you are pressed for time.

Saffron has lunch buffet Monday to Friday, and it is conveniently located at the Virginia Beach Town Center, to get a quick lunch. Buffet has a large variety of entrees, both Veg and Non-Veg; salad; Indian sauces; fresh Naan; and dessert. Preparation is good, and the staff is friendly and helpful. The restaurant has a separate room, which I have... More

Both our times at Saffron have been on Friday nights, service was great, and the food always came out quickly. We love the naan, butter chicken, tawa chicken, and tikka marsala. PSA: I LOVE spicy food, but 3 (spicy level) was way TOO much for me - still great food though, just ask for extra yogurt (: Will definitely have... More

My husband and I were in Virginia Beach during off-season and decided to go into downtown Virginia Beach for dinner. We went to Saffron Indian Bistro. The food was exceptional! This is really a nice restaurant, with a full bar and ambiance--great lighting for couples who want a nice romantic dining experience. The food was delicious. We ordered the goat... More

Whether or not you have been exposed to Indian fare, a stop at Saffron would never be a mistake for those looking to explore new eats or enjoy a sensational meal. From their delicious naan (topped with mint sauce, if you desire-and I would recommend!) to their countless perfectly-spiced offerings, dining at Saffron will, without a doubt, be an absolute...

Great place for lunch, with a wonderful buffet so you can sample their different salads, entree's and deserts. The price is very reasonable, there are several entre' selections, both meat and vegetarian. Service is fast. They bring a delicious basket of hot naan to the table to complement the meal. The chicken tikka, and the tandoori were excellent, as well... More

Outstanding Indian cuisine in an above-average venue that fits well with Town Center. The prices tend to be slightly higher than average but, to me, worthwhile. The servers are kind and happy to make recommendations or offer explanations. I've enjoyed dinner several times over the past year, most recently in August 2016. The experience is consistent. I've always been a... More

Great choice for family. We are a family of four and we loved the buffet. We choose the buffet so we could 'try a little of everything.' My kids loved the chicken tikka and coconut chicken. I enjoyed several dishes ( can't remember names). The wait staff is very friendly. My wife and I sat and enjoyed quite conversation after... More

Very good Indian food, especially if you like spicy. We started with their complimentary pita chips and mint salsa.... excellent. The came the appetizer, Gobi Munchurian, $10, and the heat began. Fried cauliflower, with a spicy red sauce. We had an order of Garlic Naan, $3.50, and I'd say unremarkable. I had the Lamb Kerla Pepper, $17.50. And my spouse... More
