As a lover of Indian food, Shrewsbury is a great place to live or visit with a number of very good Indian restaurants. However there is one, Cafe Saffron, that stands head and shoulders above all others and having eaten there on many many occasions both the quality of food and excellent service (extremely friendly, attentive and non-intrusive) really make...

Visited this restaurant on a week day evening. The atmosphere was relaxing, I could not fault the staff who were attentive but not in your face. The food was sublime. Highly recommended.

First time at Cafe Saffron and certainly won't be the last. Went with a large group of friends and we were very well looked after with both drinks and food coming quickly. I have tried most of the curry houses in the area and the depth of flavour just takes this one to a different level. I normally keep away... More

This was my first time at Cafe Saffron and we were treated wonderfully by all of the staff, and not to mention the food was wonderful! The surroundings are fairly simple, and quite relaxing. The overall experience was excellent and I will definitely be going back there many more times.

Great food, great fun, great range. Although we have only visited Cafe Saffron a few times with everyone else being from out of town, we were recognised and treated like regulars. Their Naga Murchi really is an almost must and the first proper curry I've had for years! Furthermore I was sent away with a pot of Chef's special Naga... More
