Best indian on the costa

We've been coming here for maybe as long as ten years, and we've just been back tonight. It was quiet, but this means great service and we're able to chat. So compared with our Indian resto at home, which we love, this is much tastier food, at a fraction of the price. Tonight we spent a total of €44 on... More

This restaurant looks the part when you first enter. Initially there was no one around when we went in so we had to shout for someone. We went for dinner but there was no one else dining It was also cold. The waiter seemed very friendly and chatty and seemed genuinely sorry so we stayed when he agreed to put... More

We have been to this restaurant a few times recently, always lunchtime, mainly because we were foolish enough to buy some discount vouchers. We have always been disappointed with the food- but we're reassured by the manager that the restaurant 'really didn't open properly at lunchtime- better to come for dinner'. So tonight we invited very good friends to join... More

Visited this restaurant for the first time and didn't disappoint. The place is authentically decorated and brings a little bit of the Taj to Marbella. The food selection is complete and what you'd expect from a competent Indian cuisine. The food quality is lovely and the presentation great. The staff are knowledgable and attentive. The CoolDeals offer is great value,... More

Saffron used to be known as Josephs. Its a pity it cant go back to being Josephs. A real culinary disaster. The service was good but I don't know where the chef was the night we were there. I had chicken tikka with a separate Madras sauce. Believe me when I tell you I got a bowl of tomato soup... More
