Best Indian food west of Birmingham (UK)

My wife and I agree this is the best Indian food we have had since leaving the UK 25 years ago. We both grew up eating Indian food (very popular in the UK) and have searched for somewhere that could match our memories. I am glad to report this is the place. everything tastes fresh, spiced... read more

My husband is British and really enjoys Indian food as I do and we found Saffron by chance and have been there for their lunch buffets (all you can eat - for the 2 of us plus beverages the tab was under $25) several times and for dinners - a finer dining experience. The restaurant is clean and beautifully decorated,... More

Great food, great service. Will definitely return in the future. The spice in the food was awesome. The layered wheat bread was worth the cost. Very clean - a must visit.

Since my trip to Indian in 2008, I realized I really liked authentic Indian food. This restaurant reminded me of my time in Indian. The lunch buffet is a nice way to sample many different dishes.

Though the outside of Saffron was unassuming, when I entered the restaurant it was a nice surprise. The inside of this place was classy and all of the waiters/waitresses worked together to provide great service. Let me start by saying that though I am not totally versed on what all of the dishes I had were, I will do my... More

Saffron has a wonderful lunch buffet. The service is attentive and the food is the best in the area. Make sure you are there early because it will fill up fast!

Take out on the way. Food is average. The rice is sub par. It's not cooked right. It should be soft and not gritty which is half cooked. Mutton Sheekh Kabab is Great, and tasty. Will visit again.

I have eaten in some of the best India restaurants in London and was so happy when a good friend introduced me to the Saffron, it certainly is as good as many that I have eaten at previously in England. The Staff are friendly, the service great. It is very bright, pretty and clean. Most important the food is delicious,... More

Has a good verity of Indian food in the lunch buffet. Bright and clean ambiance. Service was pretty good. Food wise, Carrot halwa was excellent. Bada and batura were good as well. Chhole and dal makhani can have a little less tomato in them. Did not try the tandoori chicken, but looked real good. Will return and try the rest.

Took my wife who is not terribly adventurous in trying new foods from cultures that she hasn't tried before. She agreed the food was great! This is one of those places, If you're not sure you've had Indian food, then you probably won't recognize anything they bring you, but everything tastes awesome. Be sure, like a lot of Asian foods,... More
