Visited Clacton on a one-off and fancied an Indian for dinner. Was actually on our way to another Indian in town but was recommended to go to Saffron by our cabbie, so we took a detour! Very glad we took his advice as it was beautiful. Service and food both excellent throughout, it's just a shame it can't be our... More

This was our first visit to Saffron but certainly won't be our last. We loved the food. The service was excellent and the whole experience was enjoyable. Reasonable prices and great selection.

Have eaten at the Saffron many times in the past! I have never been disappointed in their food, service or experience. I have tried most of their dishes such as their mixed grills, chicken, lamb and prawn dishes. Loved them all! Their Sunday buffets are good value too!

After acquiring the taste for Indian food late in life it was rare for me to out. Preferring steady eddie steak I was introduced to Indian food on a cricket tour.

Average Indian restaurant. The service is always very good but can't really highly rate the food. Very English orientated at least aimed at the English palate. The restaurant is not the most comfortable of places and it is situated back of shops. Not exactly scenic.
