Saffron Indian Cuisine & Bar - Newbury Park: $20 for $40 Worth of Indian Fare and Drinks at Saffron Indian Cuisine & Bar

Though India and Indiana are roughly the same word, their cuisine offerings are worlds apart. Find out the difference two letters make with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Indian fare and drinks at Saffron Indian Cuisine & Bar in Newbury Park.

Saffron Indian Cuisine & Bar transports diners to India atop a vast menu of traditional eats, including chicken, lamb, and seafood dishes, as well as an array of vegetarian options. Commence piquant jaunts with appetizers such as a pair of samosas, stuffed with potatoes, peas, spices, and herbs ($3.95).

For the main event, the tandoori chicken marinates in yogurt and spices before Saffron's clay ovens sculpt it into a crisp vessel of savory flavors ($9.95). The shrimp tikki masala competes for clay-oven warmth by wearing an attention-garnering masala marinade ($13.95). Meatless options include mixed veggies wading in tomato, saffron, and traditional spices in the vegetable curry ($8.95).

The interior at Saffron matches the cuisine, with vibrant colors, India-inspired décor, and a bar that tastes like naan. A variety of garnishes accompany well-presented meals to distract eyes, preventing them from diving impulsively into sting-inducing spices.

Reviews

The Ventura County Star reviewed Saffron Indian Cuisine & Bar. Eighteen Yelpers give the restaurant an average of 3.5 stars.

  • That’s because the Newbury Park restaurant, located at what used to be Bella Luna Italian, turns out a bounty of dishes for those seeking exotic flavors in their fare. Enhancing the experience is a gracious and prompt attention to service. – Rita Moran, Ventura County Star
  • This is my favorite place to eat out in all of Ventura County! Not only is the food great but the service is very amicable as well. – Diana C., Yelp, 3/2/11

Saffron Indian Cuisine & Bar

The chefs at Saffron Indian Cuisine & Bar believe Indian cooking is built around three main factors: ingredients, proportions, and timing. It’s a blueprint they've based on generations of family recipes, with which they never stop experimenting. Thus, like a crash-test dummy with a love for avant-garde fashion, the restaurant does not shy away from taking risks. Diners reap the benefits when they savor such house specialties as sutra lamb, which features boneless pieces of lamb cooked with ginger, onion, garlic, and yogurt.

Trial and error aside, Saffron's kitchen staff does abide to many traditional forms of Indian cooking as well. It uses tandoori ovens, for instance, to prepare dishes such as mirchi tikka, a spicy combination of chicken, cayenne, and lime. Fourteen vegetarian entrees, nine of which are vegan, and build-your-own curry dishes arrive atop tables bedecked with tangerine-hued cloths. Rich, fringed red curtains surround the dining area and capture the light flickering from tabletop lanterns.
