A meetup with long-lost family

Very good food and service, and easy to find, eventually... It's just that satnav doesn't work well in Eastleigh. Once we got there we got a good welcome, an interesting menu, good and subtle service and the food lived up to the menu.

We have had many a take out from this place in Eastleigh but called in for a sit down curry this time. A few pupadams while reviewing the menu - as always crispy and warm. Chosen dishes brought to the table in good time and placed on the heated bases. Lamb and chicken the basis for the meals and both... More

Visited with friends on a Friday evening and it was very busy. Staff were all friendly and helpful and the menu was large and interesting. We all ordered different dishes and all five of us declared them to be excellent. It's not cheap but for high quality and with good portion sizes still good value. This place certainly deserves it's... More

First visit to this restaurant which has been in the town for years. A small intimate restaurant which was busy on a Tuesday night which is always a good sign, prompt friendly service, the menu was pretty standard but the food was very good. Nothing was to much trouble and this is without doubt the best Indian restaurant in the... More

Enjoyed a really good takeaway this evening. Ordered in the restaurant and food came promptly and well packaged with fre poppadoms as an extra gratefully received (and eaten). Saffron has some welcome additions to the usual 'Indian' menu; this evening we particularly enjoyed the Chicken Amnah (chicken / mango / coconut milk) and Mughle Azam (tikka chicken / potato /...

We went to Saffrons on a Saturday purely because we didn't fancy cooking or washing up. I phoned up and they booked us a table straight way. 15 mins later we were there seated in a booth and ordered. Dinner itself was very tasty and my veggie dish had a good variety of veg and excellent flavours. Overall it was... More
