We go here quite a bit as we live only a few minutes away by foot. The staff are always highly attentive without being intrusive. The food is some of the best from an Indian restaurant I've had in the UK. Extensive menu which makes up for the only con and that's the decor. Very plain.

Just had a wonderful meal at Saffron. My guy and I were walking the Cotswold Way and were staying in Woodmancote and needed some dinner. A quick walk to the restaurant, no reservation but were seated immediately. Lots to choose from on the menu, we settled on veg pakora, butter chicken and veg tikka masala. All very good and generous... More

When we arrived we were seated at our table, ordered our drinks and I was already impressed with the service at this point. Our only disappointment was that my friend ordered a vegetable dish from the signature meals section of the menu and we were told this was not available, but to make up for this we were offered poppadoms...

Was a nice place, with outside space too, toilets were nice. Naan bread served cold, curry portions good but not of great quality, to summarise, it was ok but wouldn't go back.

I love the Saffron Lounge so much! Ive never had a bad meal here, whether I'm eating in or taking away! The portion sizes are brilliant and the taste of all the dishes are exquisite! They are not too pricey either. When ever we have a family occasion this restaurant is always top of our list!! Love it!

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.

Thank glyn l
