This is a good restaurant which I have visited 4-5 years ago. Nice location and in a nice area. Location: If you plan to visit Virginia Beach and like to eat Indian food then this is a good option. Little away from beach, 15 mins drive. Near the beach, you have not so good Indian restaurants. Service: decent but slow Food delivery: cool to table .. fast but not many people were there Quantity: less, for the cost of food. Compared to other restaurants, food quantity was less. It can barely satisfy one’s appetite if they are adults Quality I would rate above average and towards good. If I compare it with restaurants in the area, it is better. For the cost, I won’t rate it high. Some dishes were very spicy and also not made correctly. Methi malai Mattar did not have any methi and malai. Breads (chili garlic and roti) were good. Bhindi masala was good. Matar Paneer was average. Shahi Paneer (made with cheese cube) was not as per recipe…! I review a lot of restaurants worldwide and knows correct taste and recipe. Mango lassi: in such a small glass for the price. I hate to say, for the price, you will easily pay $20-25 per person at lunch and more for dinner. Saffron what I knew 4 years ago is now different.

We always enjoy the variety of spicy -- mostly not hot spicy -- dishes at the lunch buffet. And there's one that's mildly sweet, probably without any sweetener added. They also have salads & chutney. Desserts include rice pudding, fruits, honey drenched pastry balls, & -- if you're lucky -- mango pudding, an exquisite conclusion to a satisfying meal.

Today was my first time at Saffron. Owner was very nice. I tried Tandoori Mix. Shrimp, beef, salmon and chicken with onions cooked on a iron skillet. It was very good . Restaurant was clean. Quiet. Nice abviance. I look forward to returning.

Indian cuisine at it's finest! This was a fantastic find for us a bit more finer dining but the dishes and options they had were superb as well as the level of spiciness. Must give it a try!

This large and unattractively furnished place was stone-cold empty on a Saturday evening..and it’s no wonder. My lamb Roghan josh, which I ordered spicy, was bland and gristly. Saagh panneer resembled regurgitated baby food. Everything was served in small cereal-type bowls into which the waiter invariably plunged his thumb while serving. When one diner questioned whether they’d received the right dish, the waiter picked through the dish with a fork looking to see what it contained - like a school nurse inspecting a scalp for lice. Truly disgusting. Waiter was sarcastic and smart-alecky. There are many great restaurants offering good food and warm hospitality. —- eat there, not at this cynical travesty.

I came in to see family and they suggested Saffron. The service was excellent and they even made an item for me not offered on the menu. It was SO GOOD! The chicken biryani was superb. Vegetable samosas were excellent and the raita was spectacular as well. Highly recommend.

We had dinner at Saffron in Virginia Beach Town Center last Saturday night. This was not our 1st time dining there as we make a point to dine each time we're in town. The lamb, tandoori wings and bhindi were outstanding. Jamal did a wonderful job of attending to our requests. We highly recommend Saffron as a dining must if you enjoy Indian food.

Lovely staff but that’s the end of the good stuff! Poorly decorated and run down interior. Mini popadoms came with only one ‘lime’ dip. Starter was basically chicken nuggets with zero spice or marinade, even though it was most expensive thing on menu, and main course CT Masala lacked any texture due to lack of any sliced peppers etc. Very disappointing and the management need a trip to UK to see how it’s done properly.

We have eaten here twice recently, and not meals were exceptional. On our first visit, we got butter chicken (our favorite dish here), chicken khorma, vegetable samosas, and the bread basket, which includes 4 pieces of three different types of naan. It was a great meal and we the leftovers provided a couple more. On our second visit we got garlic naan, coconut curry chicken, and vegetable shashlilk. The veggie dish is basically veggies grilled in the tandoor, and they were very tasty by themselves, and even better with the sauce that comes with the dish. We used to live in Norfolk, and this place was one of our regular visits, so when we came back in town for a visit we made it a point to go. We were not disappointed - it is still great. Service is friendly. Draft beer is $2 from 5 to 7 PM. We will definitely be back.

Amazing food, and a large variety of dishes to explore. This is the perfect path to try something off the beaten path and broaden your horizons. There is an appetizer with mussels which was fantastic!

We had the bread basket. It was the perfect appetizer. The servers are first rate, and understand the food options and people's tastes. We asked him for suggestions, he asked detailed questions, and made recommendations based on what we like. Every recommendation was spot on. Go in with an open mind and just try something different. Great service, food, and atmosphere.

The service was bad- bordering on rude. The food was average. I ordered chicken tikka Marsala and garlic Naan. The Nasn bread had the consistency and taste of a European pancake. The curry was bland. Chicken tough. The wine we ordered didn’t come until half way through the meal and it was of low quality when it arrived.
