Although Columbus famously "discovered" India by landing at Lexington and Concord and proudly ringing the Liberty Bell, the real location of India remains a mystery. Today's Groupon offers the best lead the world has had in centuries: for $15, you get $30 worth of Indian cuisine and drinks at Saffron Indian Bistro in Virginia Beach. This Groupon is not valid for the lunch buffet.

Saffron Indian Bistro, named for the delectable and valuable spice that stimulates palates around the world, wows patrons with a varied menu of tantalizing and exotic fare. Begin your spice savoring with a tandoor bread such as herb-topped garlic naan ($3), perfect for sopping up tasty tidbits and cleaning off chin spills. Entrees such as the achari beef with herbs and pickle sauce ($15) and the jeera chicken in a curry and cumin-seed sauce ($14) douse taste buds in a mélange of flavors, and malai kulfi ice cream made with milk and nuts caps off belly-filling fare. Additionally, patrons can enjoy a fully stocked bar, which is sure to fuel illuminating discourse about the use of elephants in contemporary-art exhibits.

Things that seem impossible on an empty stomach, such as skydiving straight into space and convincing your boss to trade spouses, slide into the realm of the certain once you've devoured a Saffron Indian Bistro meal. Amid a cozy, relaxing atmosphere doused in pleasant lighting and lustrous wood furnishings, visitors can kick back and relax like La-Z-Boy recliners on a virtual taste expedition. Enjoy flavors from half way around the globe without magnetically altering the earth’s axis with today’s Groupon.

Saffron Indian Bistro

Geography teachers might quibble, but a fairly accurate map of India can be made by arranging the pots of Saffron Indian Bistro's octet of curries. Each curry draws on distinctive spices and herbs to represent a different region's cooking style. Acting as the common language to this culinary subcontinent is the blend of yogurt, ginger, garlic, and garam masala that marinates each skewer of tandoori chicken, lamb, or fish. Regardless of the entree, the chefs customize the heat to accommodate each diners' tastes, prepping plates with mild, savory flavors or enough incendiary spice to evaporate an iceberg.

Visual spice pervades the bistro's decor as well. Sunshine-yellow walls surround the small, striped booths and dark wooden tables. And when the sunlight ceases to stream through the large front windows, torch-like wall sconces and dangling pendant lamps take over, adding an atmospheric illumination to dinner dates.
