I've noticed the service going downhill, and our last visit will be just that. The host was rude, the server only came by to take our order and deliver food, an item was forgotten (again), and the portions are smaller. We like the food, and Saffron is the closest Indian restaurant to us, but I cannot imagine returning. We spent... More

I will not speak on the food aspect because unfortunately I didn't get the opportunity to taste the food. It was a Saturday afternoon and I had a craving for some Indian food, and by doing my research I landed this place. Let me just speak on my short experience . A older couple came in minutes before us and... More

We loved the restaurant, the food and the ambiance. Best part is it is 15 minutes away from VA beach so you can avoid the beach crowd. Liked the quality of food and spice levels. Will definitely recommend to my friends and family.

I admit after reading some of reviews, we were not sure what to expect. We found the service to be good, the food to be excellent, and the price reasonable. I'd eat there again.

food, over cooked... no smiles, no greetings, no communication, while I'm eating the server just puts the bill on my table. WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE EVER EXPERIENCED, MANY OF MY FRIENDS ALSO COME HERE FOR LUNCH.... NEVER AGAIN.

The food was okay but ther service was terrible. The staff lacked social skills and the ability to come back to our table to take our orders. They made us wait half an our even thou no one was there.

Pros: Great location in VB town center, close to a parking garage (watch out for construction as of March 2014), and spotless restrooms. My friend and I had the coconut shrimp curry, which was great, even the next day in the microwave. Even the tea was good. Cons: The owner was the hostess that night and instead of putting my... More

Saffron is one of those places I visit often. When craving for Indian cuisine, Saffron definitely answers that. Latest visit though was a so-so. The food is still definitely great. It was the service that was a downgrade. Several previous visits were exceptional but the last one, it was as if you don't feel the WELCOME you would expect. Good... More
