Hadn't been to this restaurant for over 15 years, use to be one of my favourites. Went back there for a meal last weekend and although the layout has hardly changed, the food seemed to be somewhat lacking in authenticity. We cook curries at home on a regular basis, and don't know whether that affects our opinion, but honestly, we... More

A slightly old fashioned Indian, or retro, if you prefer; the service was good and the food, from an extensive menu, was good, suitably spiced, and presented piping hot. Not the smartest or trendiest, but long established, and a good meal.

Used to love this place. Gone down hill. Food still pretty good. Service average waiters look miserable. Gets busy Friday s and Saturday. Other places better.

Having dined at this cosy, thematic little restaurant in Saffron Walden several times, it never fails to surprise me how friendly the waiters are - it's as if they are incapable of not being generous. With authentic Indian/Pashtun music in the air and the chatter of satisfied guests, one can only admire the variety of the menu. From a range... More

I particularly like the Persian dishes here and the fact that the staff are so friendly and attentive. They always remember a face and service is excellent.

My wife and I have just returned from a meal out at the Nemonthron; we have lived in Saffron Walden since 2006, and whilst tempted to dine there since moving here we have been put off by the outside deco, (over the top in our opinion). What a mistake! On entering the restaurant we were warmly greeted by the proprietor... More

Not as good as it has been or maybe an off day? Not as busy either. Used to be packed.
