“LOTS OF COMPETITION”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

There are two or three Indian restaurants in Tiverton at the time of writing. This is by far the best with a contemporary feel, no flock wallpaper or pictures of cascading waterfalls. Food is great with a wide choice from the standard menu. i have asked for dishes not on the menu and they have made them for me. The take away is also good and they always add a little something to your order.

“Simply amazing Indian cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012 via mobile

This restaurant never fails to disappoint. Great food served by great people. After a meal at the saffron my belly is always satisfied and my wallet has not felt the strain. Could not recommend highly enough.

“Don't bother if you want a proper curry”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

First impression on entering, torn worn sitting area, off putting.
Staff were very friendly and good
Food was flavourless, no spice flavour and the dhall worst ever
Would probably suit people who like medioc curry, but not proper curry lovers

“Very disappointing”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

We decided to book a table for 6 at The Saffron, due to the Indian Restaurant next door having now shut down. You can not fault the service or the cleanliness, however the food was very disappointing, the dishes were attractively presented but all lacked in flavour and spice, which is after all what Indian food is all about, we would have been far better to get a cheap carry out from the local supermarket. All in all very disappointing, we will not going again, and we won't be recommending the place.

“Excellent!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

Saffron Trip Advisor:

Excellent! Curry-licious!

We ate at Saffron while on a one night stop-over in Tiverton.
TripAdvisor reviews led us to there and it didn't disappoint!
Service was swift and friendly. 
Popadom and sauces were excellent.
My wife and I are huge curry fans. She judges a good Curry house by the standard of her favourite dish; a Prawn Pathia. Where as my curry barometer is a Naga. Saffron prepared both as well as either of is had ever experienced, and that's saying something!
At the end of the night the bill made good reading too.
I'd highly recommend Saffron.
