My favorite curry house

When the saffron opened I was a student living just around the corner. From the very beginning both the food and the welcome were exceptional. I recently moved back to Cambridge and was thrilled to find that neither of these things had changed. A combination of a hugely friendly staff and a great... read more

Last Sunday, seven of us, with a baby in tow, went there for a pre-Christening Lunch. We ordered a string of varied dishes, including real fish, as opposed to the usual prawns. Each and every one of them was beautifully and individually cooked, and presented. But what lifted the whole experience was the fact that the baby took to Masood,... More

We have a curry here at least once a month and the food and service is always excellent. We have had a range of dishes and the flavours and textures are very good. Portions are spot on too.

I've been coming to the Saffron now for more years than I can remember and have yet to be disappointed, great food, fantastic service, the staff can never do enough for you and are always there with a warm welcome. Although I've now moved away from Cambridge I still come back on a regular basis just for my favourite Indian... More

Fabulous resturant, food and service are the best. We visit regularly when we visit Cambridge to see family, really wish we lived closer. 12 of us went and had a great family meal just after christmas, a new tradition already looking forward to this year!

I've always liked the Saffron. Its always been one of the few Indians in Cambridge that you can turn up to with a sizeable party ( say 10 or more ) and be sure of good food and reasonable service. Having said that, the last couple of visits have been disappointing. Long delays in food being served, missing food and... More

The service is great (the staff are super friendly), the food is even better, and there is a lovely decor. Reasonably priced with loads of choice on the menu for curry beginners and curry fanatics alike. We've never been disappointed!

Visit here 2/3 times a month. Eat in or takeaway just as good, food and service is always spot on. Won't find better especially in Cambridge . Never fails always 5*

Love the place. . Those guys know how to treat you with service and food. A genuinely great place to eat. The menu... try the ceylon, incredible but the chefs specials are also worth delving into, I can't recall at this moment the dishes but I've never been disappointed. Ask for extra hot - at your own risk! Highly recommend... More

Wonderful restaurant! Always accommodate us in a discrete table so we can have a lovely time together, and are very friendly. Excellent service! We come here often and have never been disappointed. I've put the type of visit as couples but would imagine it's fantastic for friends, family or work parties. Also excellent value for money. My favourite Indian restaurant... More
