Great food

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.

Great place, lovely caring staff and mgt,, with fabulous food options. Cater for fab Indian flavours without going over hot. Look after you so well on special occasions. Never rushed and always welcome. Would recommend to anyone without hesitation, noting obviously cater for none Indian palates too.

I have been to both the restaurant and the T room. I have always found the food to be of a high standard and if you get in before 7pm you qualify for the early bird. The food is always tasty and the restaurant is spotless. The T room was a bit of a new venture for the owner but... More

Extensive menu and quick but quality was not the best. the place did seem to be spotless though. and is ok if you want a no frills takeaway.
