It was an amazing experience when me with my husband paid a visit to Saffron Brasserie for the first time to have some Indian delicacies. Since then, we have been continuing to eat there as we love their curries, their sincere customer service and overall the lovely atmosphere. I would recommend all of my palls to pop by once and...

The food is usually very good, the staff very polite and service minded. However, the staff made a cardinal sin this time around. All six of us ordered beer. The waiter at the bar poured all beers, and some of it spilled down into these regular spilling boxes underneath the pint. The waiter poured the spillage back into one of... More

This restaurant serves good quality food. The meat was good, freshly cooked, a generous portion and the sauce was very tasty and just the right amount. The menu is well set out, easy to follow and explains clearly how hot the sauce will be. Staff are helpful and service is good. The décor is pleasant and everything was spotlessly clean.... More

After many years of living in Cambridge, and sampling many of the curry houses round and about, we have settled on the Saffron Brasserie as our favourite, and now we visit every month or so. It is the nearest one to us, which is a factor, but we have seldom been even slightly disappointed in either the service or the... More

The hotel has good authentic North Indian Food menu. The service is very good, the take away orders are attended so fast (less than 15 min) inspite of busy time. If you want to try some good 'Indian' cuisine, you should go to this restaurant.

The worst curry I have ever had the misfortune to order! I ordered my favorite curry dish that I find is quite hot but very tasty, the Achari. What the Saffron Brasserie served me was basically boot leather (masqurading as lamb) covered in brown gravy and as many green chilli's as possible. It was painful to eat and I gave... More

Popped in for an early dinner one cold February Saturday night. Was encouraged by the fact the place was already half full even at that relatively early hour (7pm). Service was prompt but unfussy. The menu has some interesting dishes which I hadn't seen elsewhere. The food was tasty and in good-sized portions. Price was competitive (50 quid for two,... More
