This is like private dining, a small restaurant that is big on quality. Food selection is great to suit all tastes, the food is delicious both if you are dining in or taking home. As a family we have become regulars and before arriving we all discuss what we are going to eat!

My family and I have been going to Saffron now for about 5-6 years now, without ever going to another Indian restaurant! The food is always impeccable, the staff are always friendly and most of the time you don't even have to book. I always look forward to going again to eat their delicious food.

Our more local Indian takeaway is not very good so we wanted to try somewhere new. We were dubious but read the reviews for Saffron and thought we should give it a go. So glad we did! The food took about 45 minutes to arrive but it was a Friday night so this could have been why... totally worth the... More

Definitely the best Indian cuisine in a take-away. Wish we had Indian take away in the states. The food was so fresh and we received it quickly. It was steaming hot!!

We have been going to the Saffron since it opened & love it because the menu is different from all the other Indian restaurants. The food is excellent, the staff are helpful & very good at their jobs. I have also used their takeaway service and food is always delivered at a good temperature, quality & excellent value for money.... More

I don't know how well I can sum up this place. The staff are fantastic, let me start off by saying that. The food is just... ridiculously good. I cannot express how amazing it is. I apologise for any hyperbole but if anywhere deserves it, Saffron does. I go back as often as I can. Just perfect, really!

My family and I have been coming here ever since the Saffron opened some eight years ago. We have used them for eating in, take-away, for parties, and even for outside catering and they have always lived up to our expectations. After trying most of the Indian restaurants in the area, we have to say, it still is, the best... More

A little outside central Watford in Courtlands Drive with nearby legal street parking and a local bus service this is one of the family's favourite restaurants to eat in OR for take away. It's also possible to walk to it from the Warner Bros Harry Potter studio tour site (with a map of the area). It serves some unusual dishes... More
