We have meaning to try this restaurant for a while, and we are happy that we finally had dinner there. We haven't had good experiences with Indian food back in the States and were a bit hesitant. We told the waiter that we weren't that familiar with Indian food, and he helped us select food that wasn't fried or spicy... More

We have been visiting this place since it was Joseph's (I think) many years ago. We went again last night on our return to the Marriott but we were so disappointed. Other than the wonderful Ronnie it is simply a disaster. My wife ordered a leg of tandoori chicken which was served RAW. Disgraceful. The replacement came 15 minutes later... More

Came back after a great meal last year. Really nice waiter, slightly mental and funny in a Mr Bean kind of way, but much better than the poker face type of waiter you often get. Great food, jalfrezi was bang on as always!

A friend recommended this restaurant to me and i have to say its one of the best indians on the coast. The food is fantastic, nice flavours and not oily like some i have eaten in. The menu is quite extensive and i recommend the thali which is really good value.

Arrived at our hotel after an early start and a long morning of travelling really ready for lunch, found the Saffron and even though given the time on a Sunday we were the only customers we were not made to feel at all awkward. The waiter was charm itself, the food exceptional, we will be returning before we leave! On... More

The restaurant looks fantastic, the food is tasty, I especially love the Tandoor food as they have an authentic tandoor oven! Ronnie is wonderful and very helpful.

Lovely food, not at all greasy, plenty of chicken. I had the vindaloo really hot and spicy not for the faint hearted you can ask for extra hot but I thought best not to. The starters were good and plentiful, the staff are very friendly and talkative but not to intrusive. Give it a go you will not be disappointed

I have been to Saffron for the last 4 visits to Spain. The staff are so attentive and the food is great. Also really great for a takeaway if you don't feel like eating out. We usually get a free beer while waiting!
