Lets start with the rice. The menu offers a selection of several rices but the waiter tells us the options are only boiled or pilau! I selected a hot chicken dish, the chicken was cold with a scalding hot source. As for taste I've had hotter Korma!! The naan was very small and under cooked in the middle. We didn't... More

The only thing you need to know about this restaurant is that the curry I ordered had a cheese slice on the top of it... Avoid at all costs. So many nicer places to eat in the area which are cheaper and much nicer.

I would expect much better quality for the prices charged. The main curry dishes were bland and the meat was tough and cold. £12 a dish (meat and sauce only) is too much for the quality served

We love the Saffron, the food is excellent and the staff are very friendly. If you want value for money in luxurious surroundings with top notch food then look no further.

Food was awful. Chicken was tough sauces tasted either bitter or to sweet. Out dated chocolate fountain with fruit as centre piece which people were using their fingers to pick up. Not ever going back. Worst Indian ever.

I consider myself a regular at the Saffron and have been many times. Over the Christmas period they decided to drop the early bird offer however Being quite shrewd this was not mentioned until drinks had been served making you feel somewhat committed to staying. Food is still good but I do feel duped at a rather sly tactic.
