Saffron Indian Cuisine

You can smell the heat as soon as your server deposits your dish onto the table ­­— and by "heat," we mean not the temperature, but the spices emanating from within the creamy gravy that circles bits of meat or cheese. Perhaps to you, "heat" means you'll want a Pepcid Complete later, or perhaps "heat" simply indicates "make me taste it, but not too much." No worries. The chefs at Saffron have perfected tailoring the spice level to your needs, no matter if it's in chicken korma, goat curry or the most flavorful paneer makhani in all of St. Louis. Regardless, make sure you inhale deeply before scarfing down your entrée. They say aromatherapy has healing properties, and the spices at Saffron are some of the most potent around. 2137 Barrett Station Road, Des Peres, 63131. 314-965-3822,
