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

The venue - Appears to have not been refurbished since 1970, very dark and old inside, furnishings out dates. The entire place needs refurbishing. The food - Nothing to write home about, curries were watery and lacked flavour. The staff - waiters - friendly enough and service was quick BUT, be weary of the people outside on the door who...

We went here for NYE, and was haggled in by a guy standing outside. We opted for a deal; any starter, any main, 1 rice, 1 naan, 1 ice-cream dessert and 2 drinks each for £15 each. We were quite happy since this is pretty good for a NYE deal. We both had the mixed starter which was a samosa,... More
