Reviewed 3 August 2014

We were going to a show at the Norva so we decided to just park the car once and find a place to eat. No destination in mind. Wandered into this fantastic restaurant, looked at the menu and decided to give it a try. Were seated immediately, fantastic wait staff, had a cold Indian beer in my hands within seconds, and much to our surprise it was restaurant week in Norfolk. We are budget diners as well and 99% of diners out are "meh...I coulda' made that better myself" since I'm the cooker :) at home. So for a prix fixe of $20, we had apps, supper and desert. And so good it was, we had the leftovers for lunch the next day. Been back twice and never disappointing.

“Highly recommended”
Reviewed 22 July 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

After two recent visits, this is definitely my go-to Indian restaurant in Norfolk. Every dish was very well done and the waiters knowledgable and helpful. Their competitor at Military Circle is good, but this is a step up. Rajput on 21st St. is a distant 3rd, both in quality of food and service.

“Double Wow”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

Dining at the Saffron restaurant has one considering maybe just live in Norfolk as this food was great, we are budget diners so share a main meal which was our standard lamb Rogan gosh , plain
rice and nan , the curry was full of flavor, it was hot enough to get our sinus working and the serving was overly generous. The service was slow but do not be afraid to be a bit more demanding as at times Indian waiters do require a little motivation. So a mangoe lassi , a fine curry and a serve of Gulab jamon $31 for two is my kind of dining, our Saffron Indian restaurant in Darwin Australia is comparable but will cost close to double.Good Atmosphere and world class Indian food just so good after witnessing miles of Corporate freeway food that has cute family friendly names. Yep small Restaurant businesses some good some bad but a choice of flavors, national dishes and atmospheres makes dining a pleasure.
