We have passed by Saffron for years but never stopped in. My husband wanted something different for lunch so we went today. The menu was extensive so the host walked us through each item. He customized an appetizer for us as we could not decide. All of it was delicious! I had the Falafel special and my husband had the lamb kabob as our main courses. Both were huge portions for lunch but so wonderful! I know that we will go back for dinner soon. We both highly recommend that you give Saffron a try!

We had the couples sampler. Everything was well seasoned and tasty! The eggplant was my favorite. The host was very gracious!

Stopped by for a quick lunch to go while running some errands in the fantastic Hilton Village. The owner was very gracious and informative about the menu and kindly gave me tea as I waited for my order. Quiet and charming interior space. Food is flavorful and authentic. I will definitely come back and try more of the menu.

We had lunch at this little spot tucked away in a quiet part of town. The food and the owner / staff were both excellent! We will go back the next time we are in Newport News.

Took my husband there for a date night before going to the Village Playhouse for a comedy play. The food was fantastic, but the owner was even better! He came to each table personally and answered questions about himself, his restaurant business, and his native country. He was very sweet and offered samples and free appetizer and desert. Highly recommended especially if you have gluten intolerance because 90% of the menu is gluten free. Enjoy!
