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

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

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.
