Good food, service not so...

Visited several times...the food is always to a good standard. If you go for a naan then they are pretty massive, you could share between 4! There is a comprehensive menu, though don't be caught out by going when they have the saver menu as there's a lot less to choose from. Despite this it is... read more

My wife & I went to this establishment last night for our wedding anniversary. Atmosphere plesent enough , clean & tidy. Unfortunately one of our meals was not as advertised so we queried this with the waiter who called the manager over (his dad). We were basically & rudely told that we could like it or lump it otherwise he... More

Given how good the reviews on here are, we thought we'd give Saffron a go. We had takeaway. Maybe that was our mistake. The reviews look good but the meal we had was awful. Chicken passanda. Chicken was tough, not tender as it should be. Sauce was like water, no sweetness, no flavour. It was like warm sawdust. Naan was... More

Excellent food & service every time we go! The best chutneys in the area and I would highly recommend the onion bhajis! The chicken shashlik is excellent too.

We have been coming to the saffron for nearly 10 years. We have tried other Indian restaurants in the area but we always come back to the saffron. The food is always delicious and the ambience is just lovely. Sammy runs an excellent restaurant which is spotlessly clean and serves really tasty authentic food, I would highly recommend.

Probably tried every restaurant within a 10 mile radius and if you want a great Indian cuisine with contemporary surroundings and friendly staff then Saffron is simply the best. Spotlessly clean, friendly staff, fantastic food (every time) and a boss and business owner in Sami that simply knows what matters most. New competition has come to town locally but we... More
