“Unexpected visit to local Indian Retaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

Having heard of this restaurant before, I have never had the opportunity to visit - so jumped at the chance when I got a call inviting to join some friends having an impromptu meal there.

Pleasant enough surroundings, based at back of the Newmarket pub in Garforth.

The food was very enjoyable, tasty and not badly priced. However, the service was very very slow - would have given 4 stars based on the food, but the slow service overshadowed a great meal. The service itself was fine - just the pace and wait for meal was too slow - even though the restaurant was quiet. Luckily there were several people in our party, so the conversation passed the time.

Would recommend the food - but expect a slow service.

“Dissapointing, inconsistant, poor service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

Having been to the restaurant and had a few take outs the food has been ok and reasonably priced, however they are inconsistent, we had a takeout this evening which was poor, some starters were missing and those that we got were dry awful rubbish that shouldn't have left the kitchen, and the main courses weren't up to standard, when we rang to complain they didn't seem to bothered. with the member of staff stating " What do you want me to do " without offering any real solution to the problem, I can honestly say that we certainly wont be ordering again.

“Beautiful!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

There are two competing Indian restaurants in Garforth, Saffron and Aagrah and I,for one, prefer Saffron! The restaurant is really small, only been once but found it pleasant and the food gorgeous - and had takeaways from here and they're out of this world, really worth a try and much more authentic than a chain like Aagrah !
