Went to the Saffron for a meal with my family and it was super. The food was authentically Indian and the sizzler is to die for. The staff were friendly and very efficient, definitely going back.

Not a glitzy place to walk into but what matters is welcoming staff and of course what is served to tingle taste buds. I would say its indeed a place to go if you have Indian cuisine in your mind. Well presented dishes and swift service adds bonus points. Food I wont say is exceptional overall but one of best... More

I hadn't been for a few months and went with a friend recently and had a lovely evening. Good to see the decor had improved making it a more pleasant and warmer ambience. We had a warm friendly welcome with attentive service throughout. We both had the tandoori prawns to start. They were beautifully succulent. I had the saffron special... More

We went there for a family meal and the food was excellent and the service was second to none. My daughter doesn't like spicy food so finding an Indian that suits us all is hard. she tried 3 dishes before the right one. any thanks, at last i have found a place we can all go :)
