Visited this restaurant on Saturday evening. The welcome was friendly, we had booked but there were tables available. We had popodums and the relish tray, which was lovely. We had the sharing starter for two (thali) which was perfect, a bit of everything. They give you enough time in between courses. Our mains were absolutely cooked to perfection. My husband... More

Firstly let me say that I cannot believe some of the reviews this great restaurant has had. OK, the service is not always top notch but the manager has addressed this recently and is now perfectly acceptable, with Raju giving his all to maintain this. Food; This is not curry house food, this is restaurant food - if you are... More

My friend and I visit Saffron on a monthly basis. The service is always excellent and the staff are very friendly and accommodating. They also remember our order! We both have dishes which are not on the main menu and the staff take the time to ask us what our preferences are. We always have an excellent meal in a... More

Visited with family and friends for a meal out, we have been many times and it never disappoints. Excellent menu with some options you dont see often, great service and the surroundings and ambience are just right. We will be back for sure

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
