“great restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2014

first time i have used this restaurant for a sit in meal. normally use take away service and as usual food was brilliant and great service. the garlic chilli chicken was to die for, generous size portions.
The Bombay Aloo was very tasty, amongst the best I have tried! Will definitely be going to restaurant again. and forgoing my normal sat night takeaway.

“ABSOLUTELY HORRIFIC - CLUMP OF HAIR”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

We usually order from Saffron quite regularly we would never think about going anywhere else as their food is normally better than most Indian Restaurants around however our last experience (which will be our last) was no less than horrifc. We dipped our spoon into the Chicken Tikka Masala and pulled out A GIANT CLUMP OF HAIR. This is no exaggeration, it looked like it had been purposely pulled out of the bathroom sink/ bath and mixed in with the curry. This was no mistake and I welcomed the driver to come in and see if anyone of us had black hair but he didn't.
I'd advise to steer clear of this place! Enough said I think!

“Very good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

Visited while staying on town and out for a meal on my own. The food was exceptional, both in quality and in VFM. Service was a little haphazard but I wasn't in a rush so it wasn't a problem. The Bombay Aloo was very tasty, amongst the best I have tried! Will definitely be going again

excellent value for the delicious portions you recieve, the staff are always welcoming and friendly with a smile on their face, a refreshing change from many other less courteous local restaurants. truly, a hidden gem, my favourite place in town!
