My girlfriend and I have visited Saffron so many times we have lost count, it is just simply an unbeatable dining experience. It's not just our favorite Indian, but our favorite restaurant, and the 40 minute each way trip for us is always worth it. The food is on another level, presentation, taste, variety, it has it all. The whole... More

This is our local Indian restaurant. It's a great place to go on a Friday night after a hard week at work. It's run by a lovely family who welcome us with genuine warmth. The food is consistently delicious. We even get to take a doggy bag home if we can't finish our meal!

I am a massive fan of Saffron Lounge, which is simply the best Indian food in the area. We normally eat in, but ordered a home delivery and received simply fantastic food and service. Very delicious.

Staff were friendly, place was empty so difficult to judge atmosphere - and the food was fine, BUT why oh why is everything drenched in tomato sauces? Very odd that hardly a dish exists without it.

I took a party of 16 friends to the Saffron Lounge on Thursday, prebooked, and although we arrived at 7.00 it was a very long time before they took our orders, and some of our party were still waiting for their main courses at 9.00. This was totally unacceptable, and people who were coming in later in couples were being... More

We went with friends to the Buffett which is held on the first Wednesday of the month, have to book though. The choice and quality of the main dishes were first class, poppadums were served first and there was even a sweet course of fresh fruit and cheese cakes etc. Very Good value, will certainly go again and try the...

Me and my family decided to order a takeaway as we have had food from here before and was very nice. Everything went smoothly ordering and except being told would have to wait 45 minutes because asked for a naan bread and needed to turn ovens on. So yes that was ok. Over an hour later ring up restaurant and... More

Saffron Lounge adds another is a very well decorated Indian restaurant and the food matches that. First is the decor, recently renovated the restaurant is clean and well laid out, with the toilets, it may seem strange to say, fantastically decorated! The food isn't cheap but the quality is good! This is defiantly an Indian restaurant in the upper end... More

We had a lovely evening with friends. Staff were attentive without being intrusive. Food was really delicious. The chicken was really tender and the flavours fantastic. Will definitely be going back! Have recommended to lots of friends.
