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.

Customer Reviews

Superb Indian food; very reasonably priced Staff was most attentive and accommodating Lovely ambience with soft Indian music in background IT WAS WONDERFUL THAT THE UBIQUIOUS TV WAS NOT TURNED ON!

This was my first visit to the Norfolk, Va location. Ask for Irene. She was a wonderful waitress. I have eaten at the Virginian Beach location several times and have enjoyed going there. I like the Norfolk location better and it is closer to where I live.

Lovely restaurant, the food was authentic, delicious and presented beautifully. Our waitress, whose name I neglected to get, was helpful, knowledgeable about the menu, pleasant, and extremely efficient! A lovely evening, with the only exception being bright overhead lights that were turned on after we paid our bill. I guess it was a non too subtle hint to move on out, even though we had not "lingered".
