Went on a Thursday early doors to try and get the early bird menu. Managed to arrive in time with my wife and two adult sons. The main reason for trying to get to the early bird menu is that there is a dish on it that is not on the main menu! This is my favourite dish. My wife... More

We've never found an Indian restaurant to beat it. We don't like our Indian food to be swimming in oil, and it's not here. The staff are wonderful and really take care of you.

We recently had a chance to revisit Saffron for old time's sake, and we were pleased that it was still a good as ever. A warm welcome, nicely decorated and large dining room, and the same wide...

Visited saffron many times and it never disappoints. Best Indian restaurant I've ever eaten in. The food is absolute quality made from quality ingredients that's tastes like they have picked the herbs fresh from the garden. Tasteful and modern décor and attentive service. VIP card comes in handy which entitles you generous discount. The garlic naan is to die for... More

This is probably one of the finest Indian dining restaurants in the UK. It is not inexpensive but gives very fair value for the high quality of its food. The dishes are freshly prepared with a perfect mixture of authentic spices which, in our opinion created the most delicious food. To start, we ordered naan bread and poppadums which were... More
