Popped into this place by pure coincidence and am I glad we did. It was absolutely terrific. It has taken the bar a notch higher when it comes to Indian food. Fast, tentative service, beautifully presented, exceptional food and genuinely happy staff. We live locally in Elton and have passed this place many times on-route to an alternative venue but...

My husband and I have visited the Saffron on numerous occasions, both with our family and friends. We have always found it a 5 star establishment for cleanliness, service, hospitality and food. The décor is modern & bang on trend. The comfy seating area is a nice touch in which to relax and have a drink prior to being seated.... More

Was recommended this restaurant by quite a few people whenever I visit EPort so I decided to finally check it out. Since I'm used to eating at average tasting Indian restaurants in London I wasn't expecting much but I was actually blown away by how amazing this place was! Service was swift and very friendly and I felt like our... More

Took my dad for Father's Day and despite booking, waited half hour to be seated. Manager rude and staff didn't care and repeatedly got orders wrong! Food took an age to arrive and when it did, the presentation was so sloppy and the meals were disgusting! I've been before and thought it was nice but this experience has put me... More

Went with my mother and friends We had a lovely time the food was very good the decor was beautiful and the service was excellent I would really recommend this Indian restaurant If there was one negative it would be that they should advise the bar staff not to read the paper

Generally I don't like to leave such negative comments on a restaurant as I usually try to list at least some positives, but the food here was very poor. I had read previous reviews, which seemed ok, but decided to try this place for myself. I ordered a Chicken Dhansak, my usual fave, and when it turned up I almost... More

If you want the best Indian food around go to the Saffron, if you want poor service you could visit on a busy Saturday night in a party of 10 -20, although this is not guaranteed! The food here is a cut above and the menu extensive, for the chef to deliver this wide range of fabulous dishes must take... More
