Lunch buffet includes bread, salad, main course, and desert. Excellent variety of entrees to chose from, and really good food.

Good food, able to get a reservation quickly…service is usually challenged. Not sure what the deal is…never quite sure who is our server. But this meal was good. They really need to rearrange their bar/entrance area…very uninviting to get to the dining room. That bar area has potential…but nobody in there! Add bar tables, get rid of the booths…nobody wants...

I was extremely disappointed with the food quality here. Service was still fine, but the food quality was a deal breaker. I will never visit this restaurant again.

While this was my first trip, I was in town visiting friends, and this is one of their favorite spots. The food was excellent, the decor was lovely, clean, and modern, and while I can't say the service was on my list of memorable experiences, we were attended to promptly, our food was correct, the waiter was at least perfunctorily...

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.
