Though delicious, Indian cuisine can also create controversy when the mouth, emboldened by a spicy bite, sticks out its tongue at a passing manners columnist. Inspire taste buds with today’s Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of Indian fare and drinks at Saffron Tiger.
Saffron Tiger serves up fast and healthy East Indian cuisine, focusing on clay-oven-cooked combinations of meat, fish, and fresh produce. The two-entree combo ($6.99 with one side) makes neighbors out of the tamarind-infused raja shrimp, the chana masala chickpeas simmered in curry sauce, and a side of steaming garlic naan bread. An upgrade to the three-entree combo ($7.99 with one side) can raise mouth temperatures with a raging chicken curry that argues with teeth until tenderized and savored, or avoid dish dilemmas with the buffet ($8.95). Meanwhile, a side of saffron cabbage ($2.75) tosses aromatic throw pillows onto saffron-smitten diners’ tongues. Enjoy the convenience of takeout, or dine in to fully digest the eatery's bold décor and lively open kitchen.
