On walking down Brick Lane, looking for lunch we were invited in by what looked like the owner. A little tired after a lot of walking we succumbed to his offer. Little did we know how good the food turned out to be. One of the best curries we've had in some time, the service was perfect and attentive. The... More

My friends and I were drawn to this place because they DID NOT have one of those churlish "touts' outside. However, as soon as we started perusing their menu, the guy in charge came outside and guaranteed us a great meal, "or you don't pay". We never got that far. Our "early eats" (Mulligatawny Soup, Tikka Panner) were so-so at... More

Late on a Saturday night we thought we would go for nice Curry and had the misfortune of stumbling here. The popadoms cost £8 for 4, the curry luke warm and the vegetable samosa turned out to be meat!! We had to complain 4 times and had the bill revised twice as they tried to over charge us! Terrible so... More

I fairly regularly visit Brick lane for a curry and a couple of drinks with my friends and always negotiate with the tout outside ( as there is for every restaurant in this street ) to get an idea of the price. This one was £12 per person for 3 course meal and a beer. There was 6 of us... More

The ambience at this restaurant was great! It didn't take too long for our food to come through, & their complimentary starters did make the wait more bearable! The food is very good quality, the service impeccable, and the staff were friendly. P.s. Go hungry!

Wandering down Brick Lane of an evening can be a little over-whelming - finding somewhere for a decent curry was what we were after. I really do wish we'd looked further than this place, £44 spent on a meal that I really did not enjoy. Firstly, the host/waiter hustled us in off the street with the promise of discounts/free drinks/etc.... More

Decided to dine at this establishment Friday evening 2nd August, offered 25% discount and a free drink at the door! Very disappointing meal, small portions, expensive drinks, in all too expensive for what we had. Will not return.

Last night my family and I found ourselves in Brick Lane and after lots of deliberation chose to enter this restaurant. I'm not usually tempted by the barrage of offers of discounts and free drinks and tend to rely on the look of the place and other factors. However, the guy from the Saffron did say upon entering that they... More

We went to Brick Lane for its legendary curry and found this place disappointing. The food was too sweet with little flavour and no chilli. Attracted by a £10 per head deal, we paid well above that when a previously-undisclosed £6 service charge and expensive drinks were added.

I visited this restaurant initially to write an article on Brick Lane, I then went to eat there on my own on a Sunday and then once again with a friend. The food was delicious, the service was brilliant and I cannot thank Saffron enough for their hospitality. I wish the owner would reply to my email though as I... More
