Average food and overpriced.

Went with another couple who like it... It's ok but pricey. Just because it's in Prestbury chicken does not become dearer.

The saffron room is a high end Indian restaurant in the quaint prestbury village south east of Manchester. I had the chance to try a couple of their fish dishes and they were very good. The garlic fish starter and their signature fish were both based on monk fish and cooked to perfection. A nice surprise, I will definitely be... More

The food and service were brilliant my wife and I both said its the best Indian meal we have had,and we both thought the portion sizes were very good,I don't know if they have read other reviews and increased them but we are both big eaters and came out...

Been here a few times and the food is always excellent and the staff are friendly and helpful. Interesting dishes along with traditional dishes. It's moved about 200 yards down the road and I think this is a nicer setting inside.

Went to the Prestbury village for a curry night out and was shocked to see the saffron room closed, only to discover they have moved premises just yards down the road. We were both impressed with the new look as we have been to the last premise a few times. We decided to order a few dishes. We let the... More

Went here for a birthday treat. Seated virtually on a thoroughfare, too bright and tables too close together and so feels more like a school hall I places. Had to ask for a candle and flowers to be put on the table as they were on all others. Good average and not authentic. Feels that all that matters here is... More

Been here a few times. Very cold decor and atmosphere. The food is ok but not great considering it is on the higher side price wise.

Saffron room seems to get a hard time locally, I don't understand why. The food is fantastic. Each dish is individual, duck handii is tender and full of tamarind and cinnamon. Balti murgh skardu married the joy of a creamy korma with just the right amount of spice and herbs. The cauliflower bhajii elevates an oft ignored veg to new... More

I have been a regular customer at the Saffron Room since they opened. It never fails to impress me, my family and our friends. Sam the owner is a lovely man and Mussa the front of house manager is always good fun. I would highly recommend the party night at the Saffron Room, which is every last Thursday of the... More

This place is bottom of the league for restaurants still open in the village and for good reason. Food is overpriced, many dishes use same sauce and lots of items are precooked. They are now moving to new premises in the village, let's hope the owner employs a decent chef and starts to offer good quality Indian food instead of... More
