Saffron NOLA

Made it over their last night. Can’t believe the Chowhounders never said anything about this place. Guess everyone wanted to keep it a hidden gem. It’s not hidden anymore. Place was packed. Service was very slow. Food was exceptional. We tried all their sides which they serve with basmati rice as a vegetarian sampler. They were all good as was the shrimp app and the dessert. Wine choices were very good as well. The mango salad was just ok. They managed to make everything flavorful rather than just spicy which is a problem at the other Indian restaurants in town. It’s a little on the expensive side, but I’ll definitely go back.

  1. I've seen it on here a few times, but haven't been. Is it still just on Fridays?

      They have events on Sundays sometimes. The next will be on January 13 from 11:30 to 3:30. A Delhi Brunch. I have my calendar marked. (Featuring street foods of India)

        I went to the Sunday brunch. Crowded, but lovely ambiance. Love the effort these folks put into their food. Wish I enjoyed what it tasted like more.
