I can't say what it's like when you eat in, but 2 lots of takeaway, all meals we're terrible and will never order from here again! Sorry!

Excellent location, service, quality, value. Ditto for the various takeaways we've had from there. What else could you ask for ?

We came for their buffet night (£12.95 per person) and you get a selection of about 3-4 different main courses along with a rice, naan and sides, then a small selection of desserts. Food was very nice and hot, plates were cold though. Staff were friendly and service was good - I would go again.

This is the first time I have given a bad review to an Indian restaurant.My starter which was the mixed platter was dry and bland and my biryani was a gooey mess.My partner had better luck with scallops starter and Xacuti chicken..Overall however I would not recommend this restaurant..Service was fine.I am surprise at the good reviews prior to mine.

Have only eaten here twice but it's already the favourite local Indian restaurant and I'm including Cheltenham and Tewkesbury. The food is cooked to perfection. I'm a fussy eater and usually leave something on the plate, but not here. Haven't tried any of the desserts yet so that pleasure is to come. The only negative comment is that the dining... More

We are local so thought we would give the lovely welcoming Saffron Lounge a visit. On arrival we were greeted with a warm smile and a cosy welcome. As you walk through the main entrance you enter the bar area which is separate from the main restaurant, this provides a seating area if you should arrive early or just popping... More

This restaurant is tucked away on the road between Bishops Cleeve and Woodmancote, very near the railway bridge. It is well signposted on the road, so not hard to spot and it is well worth the effort. There is a large and separate bar area / take-away waiting area, with the main sit-down restaurant in a separate section. We have... More
