Opens only on Friday evenings and a special food offering night every once in a blue moon, it is worth the 10 min Uber ride from the French Quarter! Located in a nondescript strip mall, in a residential neighborhood, first impressions are set aside once you enter the nicely decorated dining room. If you like Indian and Cajun food, you... More

This restaurant is open only on Fridays for dinner and is in a nondescript strip mall. The food is excellent and when we went there the service was fast and efficient. Very limited menu. Unlike most Indian restaurants where dishes are meant to be shared, here the dishes come plated. A minor irritation is that they charge for things that... More

Enjoyed a great dinner at Saffron Nola, my husband and I showed up for dinner without a reservation. Mr. Vilkhu was kind enough to get us seated in spite of my forgetfulness in making our reservation. I was not expecting such a wonderful dinner, the atmosphere inside was exceptional. I think my husband and I lucked out with our seats.... More

This place continues to deliver outstanding Indian cuisine and exceptional service. The vegetarian sampler dinner was outstanding, the gumbo remains one of the best in the city, though unique, and the appetizers are so great you want to have one of each! The specialty cocktails are always outstanding, too!

This is a charming little restaurant run by an Indian American family. The host is a wonderful man who does everything he can to make your visit an excellent experience. Unfortunately, they are only open on Fridays and other times by appointment. Get reservations. The food is amazingly good, spicy and delicious and somewhat unique. High quality level, and NOT...

This is one of our favorite restaurants when we want an upscale dining experience without crossing the river. We have been here often enough that we know the proprietors and they always welcome us back like old friends. Of course, we wouldn't go there if the food and service wasn't top notch. I recommend that you try their special offerings.

Only open on a Friday night so you need to make reservations. Eaten there about eight times and am never disappointed. Food and service always excellent!

I have been to Saffron Nola a few times this year and I wanted to post a review to this little known gem on the West bank. The only downside is that it books up early- its open on friday evenings and reservations are a must. Make sure to sign up for their email list and they'll send you information... More
