lovely meal

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... read more

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

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

We have used the saffron many times since moving to the area a year ago and we have never had a problem with the saffron lounge, they deliver extremely quick and the food is always the same quality! I felt I needed to add a review as seeing some of the negative ones recently made me feel it is being... More

Eight of us came to the Saffron Lounge to dine during the Cheltenham festival. We chose Saffron Lounge because of its close proximity to the accommodation we had rented for the week. The said property is located at the top of a big hill with a 25% gradient, and by the end of this culinary journey from hell, many of... More

Food is always 1st class & the service is excellent. Ideal for eating in or take away. We regularly use this restaurant and have always had a great meal. The presentation of the food is excellent and the menu is very varied. Families are made to feel very welcome

What a total waste of money- I wish I had read the recent reviews before coming here. It took an hour and a half to be presented with our starters which were tasteless! Had to send them back as they were almost inedible. The mains arrived and were just as bad. Do not go here, I much prefer curry corner... More

Having read reviews, we were a bit unsure of our choice, but arrived to order takeaway last night and the place was really busy and this boosted our confidence a bit. Got food home, and, well... the food was exceptionally underwhelming. I mean, we both sat there struggling to find anything to say as the food tasted of nothing. There... More

I visited this restaurant yesterday for a takeaway meal. Upon arrival the restaurant looks nice, and the staff were welcoming. I ordered our normal favourite meal of a chicken Dansak and vegetable Dansak, with Saag Aloo and a peshwari naan bread. This came to £22.50. The restaurant was very quiet with one couple sitting down, which should have been an... More
