“Well worth a trip to Eastleigh for Saffron!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

Simply the best Indian meal I've eaten in years. The last meal as memorable as this was some twenty five years ago in Glasgow. i like to venture into the country for meals rather than town centres but I'll be making an exception for Saffron. I've been to Indian restaurants with far better decor and location but this is more than compensated for by the food served here. I had a mild dish that was flavoursome, slightly sweet and creamy. It contrasted well with a hot dish that my friend picked. Despite being hot it still managed a marvelous array of flavours. The waiters made you feel very welcome and gave the place a good atmosphere. In terms of the food it beats other Indian restaurants I've visited in the area by a huge margin. I'm going to take my wife here - She's not a fan of Indian food but there's a good chance that Saffron could convert her!

“Really gorgeous food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

I went here for a later night meal with friends. One of them is a head chef and very critical of the food he eats.
Great tasty dishes from start to finish and a recommended place from me.

“Average curry”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012 via mobile

Good service but average tasting curries I think. Stopped in a few times late at night and have always been welcomed and provided with a good service but needs to touch up the food a little
