I can see why this is number one in area. Absolutely cracking place. Small 8 or so tables and popular so book. Good food and i have had many curries. Staff are friendly but not in your face. Highly recommended

We bought a take away from here whilst staying at Leithen Lodge. The food was delicious and the service was with a smile. Will definitely return again.

My wife and I visited this lovely, little quaint Indian restaurant during a 4 night break at nearby Leithen Lodge. We have never dined out at an Indian restaurant twice in the same week before! Until now! The food was sensational. The service was first class and waitresses very polite. 10/10 and great value for money!!!

We were staying at The Traquair Arms, but due to their kitchen having a refit we decided to try Saffron in the High St. What a fabulous choice it was. Although the Restaurant is small the food is exquisite and freshly cooked to order. The young lady serving us couldn't have been more pleasant and helpful and made our dinner... More

This small restaurant and takeaway on the high street offers a really different take on your normal Indian restaurant. The extensive menu has many unfamiliar but delicious dishes. The service is excellent. Overall, a great place to visit in this small Scottish town.

Enjoyed a lovely meal here whilst sampling the local cycle facilities. Located on the high street, i suggest pre-booking as it can be very busy and was advised fully booked most weekends.

Excellent small, very popular restaurant. We went to see if we could eat, and were told that they were fully booked for later but if we would like to eat at half six that would be fine. We were not disappointed! Several local people had recommended it and everything they said was true. Friendly staff, large menu, delicious food. Would... More
