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

We have not been here for a while but went last nite and one of the major reasons was the restaurant is very well air conditioned. The place is very well decorated, very nice atmosphere, and well laid out. It all started to go wrong when we were asked if it was a table for 4.... At the point they... More

We always return to the Saffron, for us it is the best curry house in the area. The décor is modern and spotlessly clean, we have always found the service to be... More

On arrival we went into the lounge area a had a drink and then asked to go to the table which was many smaller tables joined together in... More

I have been visiting this restaurant for many years and at least twice a year will make the 2 hour trip just to eat here (with an overnight stay of course). I have recommended this place to family and friends and those that have eaten here have all thanked me for the recommendation. I love the atmosphere in this place... More
