A reliable bet.

Been here a few times with the Gloucester Curry Club. It's a little way out of Cheltenham to Woodmancote, set in the back of what/is the local community centre. It has a small car park (more than most Indian's do). The food is always of good quality and the atmosphere makes you feel you can... read more

Had another fantastic meal here, with both the taste and quality of food impressing me. We just love the food here, and it always amazes me that local people haven't all yet discovered just how good it is. I can't recommend it enough.

We got a take away, which put me off having Indian food which I love! Everything was bright orange,it all tasted the same, was really odd tasting.

Having lived just down the road from this place for 3 years I'm annoyed we have only just discovered it! Went on a Friday night and it was just the right atmosphere, staff are very helpful and attentive. The food was defiantly up there with some of the best Indian food we have had. It came out hot and looking... More

Tried this for first time having had a couple of recommendations and my wife and myself are very happy with the food and service. I would have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant.

We had heard about this restaurant - and decided to give it a try on a friday night whim. The entrance area was rather unusual, but we were greeted very quickly with a welcome hello. We were immediately shown through to the main restaurant. All the staff were very attentive and the food was a real surprise. It was elegantly... More

Visited with friends, a large party including older children, on a busy night (pre-booked). Our party had a pre-planned set meal so didn't really explore the menu but the food we had was lovely -hot, tasty and very nicely presented. Nice selection of starters; samosas, pakoras, kebabs all very nice and a selection of mains including butter chicken, makhani, biryani,... More

I know the locals of woodmancote rave about this restaurant, so thought I would take a look. Cheltenham has a plethora of Indian restaurants, good and bad, so I asked myself if it would be worth travelling to Woodmancote to try this out, and after the wonderful food and service we received, the answer is simply YES, most definitely, and...

We have used the Saffron Lounge several times since we moved into the area a year ago. When we order takeaway it's always with us within 30/40min. The food is always amazing, we have tried several dishes and all of them are so tasty. I am a Korma lover and I could not believe how tasty and sweet the Saffron... More
