I am afraid this has changed name to saffron. I went there based on reviews here, but it has changed chefs and become distinctively average. Staff were friendly and quick, but the dansak was salty and inedible.what a shame.

Friendly staff and food tastes great but it's not always hot and when you order a curry you expect it to be hot

Had a fab meal, service was attentive but not over the top and all staff were really friendly. It's a little bit lacking in decor but the food was great so that's what matters Would eat here again
