can't fault this place By far the best one around

We eat here regularly both inside and take away. The mixed grill starter for two is the best we have ever had (we have compared all in the area) and the handi chicken never fails to please. The service when eating in is always pleasant and you never feel rushed. By far the best Indian around... read more

Went to this little gem not knowing much about it other than what my daughter whose birthday it was had told me, she had ordered takeaway food in the past. I visited the day before to find out what the parking facilities were like the day before as my mother in law is disabled and uses a stick. The outside... More

Visited on a Sunday night. We were the only people there but the food was very good and the manager was really friendly. Would definitely recommend and go again.

I can't rate saffron and it's staff highly enough. My family and I eat there at least twice each month and order takeaways too and have never received anything other than a 1st class service! They even make a special mild curry for a 4 year old in our family who is just starting to like curry !! The staff... More

Can't understand the previous review, the service is exceptional! We must eat there at least 2 times per month and it's got to be the most delicious Indian/ Nepalese food in the area! Definitely recommend it to everyone! They can't do enough for you!

Ordered a takeaway which I have done many times, after giving my order the staff said they couldn't do delivarys till half 6 which I thought was unusual as I'd had a delivery previous to this earlier on in the afternoon, put the phone down a little confused then rang back to double check, was then told a delivery would...

Took my family for mum and dads wedding anniversary to enjoy the most delicious indian food i've ever found. #7.99 buffet and very different from your usual indian food and particularly enjoyed the spicy vegetables - made my eye balls shake! We will definitely be returning soon:)

I have been to Saffron many times - for meals, takeaway or, most often, Sunday buffet. I have never been disappointed. The food is lovely and the staff are really friendly. e

We have had take away twice now and are seriously considering if we could make it a weekly occurrence or if that's too naughty of us! The food is just gorgeous, reasonably priced, big portions and we cannot recommend it enough, if you don't live in waterloo but it's not too far to go I would say give it a... More

I visited Saffron on Valentines Day with my girlfriend. We had a lovely evening. The food was exceptional and the staff were ever so friendly. My friend recommended Saffron and he wasn't wrong. We'll certainly be back.
