There is an extension menu at Saffron Lounge, although we asked our waiter for recommendations and he didn’t seem to have very good menu knowledge, he did go and get someone else (owner/manager maybe?) who did have excellent knowledge. We were pleased with all the food that we ordered but will specifically reference the Dosa which we had never had... More

We came directly and ordered at the bar. We waited quite a while for our order though. The food was good and well packed. The supreme naan with cheese was amazing and the peshwari naan also nice. The curries in themselves and rice were decent but could have been spicier.

Ordered a takeway, Saturday evening. There was a 50 minute wait which was fair enough, included with our meal we had ordered 2 portions of samosas (4), which were £3.95 for 2, the same size and quality as the frozen ones from Tescos 12 for a £1. We did get a small portion of salad with our starters I suppose!... More

Well where do I start?! On the way home from the cinema me and my partner decided we'd order an Indian for dinner. We rang through our order at 7.15 and was given a wait time of 45 minutes for collection. So we arrived at 8 ready to collect our order. Little did we know what was happening in the... More

We booked for a buffet night a couple of weeks ago. Its good value (£12.95 I think) and the food was OK, but all the "hot" food was luke warm or tepid, which is scary and so we didn't enjoy. I did check that the burners were on under the food trays. I also noted a waiter add fresh naan... More

Saffron lounge is a must try and hidden gem!! I have been regularly coming to saffron lounge for a number of years now and can genuinely say I have never had a bad meal. I have tried other Indian restaurants throughout Cheltenham and none are the same. This is best Indian in Cheltenham in my opinion. Good size portions and... More

We have had takeaway from here twice before and on both of these occasions it was excellent - tonight however it was not good!!! When we placed the order we specifically asked what the Tandoori Mixed Grill consisted of. After checking we were told it contained enough for 2 people to share. When the order arrived not only did Tandoori... More
