Really fancied Indian for tea so took a wander around the centre of Eastleigh before opting for the well-patronised Saffron - we’d spotted all the booths on one half of the restaurant were occupied on a Monday night. The restaurant was a little bland in design and the dishes we chose were a little bland too. Portion sizes weren’t the... More

I've been meaning to review the Saffron for some time now as myself and a bunch of mates/colleagues regularly come here and the food and service are always spot on. Portion size is good and the dishes I have are always nicely spiced without being over powering, the prices are fair too. we've been using the Saffron, roughly every other... More

We have frequented Saffron for many years it has got better and better over those years. We always enjoy our meals takeaway or eat in and it is worth noting that upon request many of the menu options can be cooked either low or no fat without detriment. This restaurant is thoroughly recommended for both its food and standard of... More

Now I'm going to be kind here even though I've rated it poor. I've been here three times with friends and on two occasions I've had nice meals and the staff are friendly however, on the third occasion I got food poisoning from the rice. My friends all had the Pilau rice and I went for the boiled rice. I... More

Not been to Saffron for a while. On Xmas eve about a dozen of us were in need of food and I remembered Saffron from eating there several times a while back. With 5 minutes notice they managed to accommodate us. Good service, prompt popadoms and drinks. All the food arrived in a timely manner and was probably the best... More

Been here a few times and have to say it's one of the top 3 of the best Indians in Eastleigh fair oak area. Food is very nice the staff are very friendly. It's a small cosy restaurant with pleasant atmosphere. The 3 only decent top Indians are kuti's, saffron, touch of spice, highly recommend them

Don't let the appearance of Saffron from the outside put you off . It's not the biggest or the flashiest Restaurant in town, but believe me, it has the best food. Dishes you've never had before as well as all the favorites. The hardest thing is to decide what ! There's nothing much to add to all the other good... More
