Great for a date!

Went here when we discovered that other nice looking Indian in Widnes, you know, that new one, got a zero food hygene rating (ok, so they now have a 4 star rating, but at the time it was nope, nope nope). Was just the two of us and we had a great meal, in a nice atmosphere for couples. Food... read more

We've visited the Saffron on numerous occasions and find this comfortably the best curry house in town. The service from the lads is phenomenal and the food is fantastic. I have seen some reviews on here not giving it justice and although they are entitled to their own opinions frankly they are completely wrong.

Thought I'd give the Saffron a try for the first time, must say that it will also be my last! Poppadoms were stale, dips looked like they had been sat in a hot cupboard! Thought I wouldn't judge till I had eaten my main, what arrived at our table can only be described as a bowl of luke warm slop.... More

A very welcoming restaurant in the historic village of Farnworth. A great menu with an extensive range of Indian and English cuisine. Staff were very good and the food was excellent. A bar area to enable you to have drinks before your meal. All adds to a very nice experience. Open early from 5.30pm with 'early doors' menu available at... More

I used to love this place, but it went steadily down hill. One year, they put on a fantastic show on valentines day and I hoped things had started to pick up again. That was short lived and with the place empty most evenings, I wont go now. It really just needs standards to go up and stay up so... More
