Good birthday meal

I've been to Cafe Saffron a few times over the last few years and have found it a good place to go with friends or family. There is a huge menu, friendly service, good quality food and large portions- price is reasonable. My brother-in-law is vegan & his family veggies, and they rate Cafe Saffron... read more

We were a large group admittedly but the service standard was unwelcoming and rushed. It took 1 and a half hours for our food to arrive after ordering. I ordered the flamingo chicken which sounded lovely, however it fails to mention its served with a large shot of flaming sambucca poured all over it. The smell alone made me feel... More

The staff are very attentive and welcoming, the food is amazing and I'm not surprised the Chef has won awards as he cooks brilliant food.

My boyfriend and I had never been to this restaurant and unfortunately it will be our last! We were put in the first room, in a corner by the bar. All of the staff were having loud conversations and laughing, we could barely hear our own conversation. The food was tasteless - first time i've ever added salt to a... More

After visiting cafe saffron before, we thought we would visit again after enjoying the 1st time so much.. We left disappointed the service was very poor unprofessional and felt like they couldn't be bothered about customer care. Such a shame as it was one of our favourite Indian restaurants :-(

Ordered a takeaway this evening..I must admit I've never been served so quickly..ever! They said 25 mins to pick up and I was there in 25 (starving lol). A polite young man passed me the card machine and honestly I'd just put in my pin and another man was out with my food! Bonus that it was cheaper than expected,... More
