Went out for dinner with some colleagues (38 of us in total)! Saffron Brasserie was one of the only places in Cambridge that would accomodate a party of this size. Habib and his waiters were very quick and efficient at dealing with our order and getting the right meals to us! The food was very nice and the customer service... More

Great selection of very good quality food and good atmosphere. I've been several times already and was always very satisfied.

Great service and nice people. I'm not a vindaloo guy but they said it's what they're known for. It was hands down the best curry I've ever had. So many times when I ask for curry a bit hotter it gets hot with no flavor. This one had so much flavor. Highly recommend!

Come early, it is quiet. You can talk to each other, the accoustics are fine. The food is wonderful, every time the same high quality. The eai Waiters are very friendly and helpful.

Whilst my husband was in Addenbrooke's hospital, I stayed in Cambridge for two nights and dined at the Safffron Brasserie. The staff wondered, I believe, at a lady dining on her own, but after I complimented the waiter on the excellent meal and said I would recommend the restaurant on TripAdvisor, he was much friendlier. I had Tandoori Lamb which... More

Having eaten here over the years, but not been for a few months. We chose to eat here on a busy Saturday evening. We didn't book a table and despite the place being full with large tables, we were offered a table at no fuss. The food was exceptional and I will be visiting here regularly again. I had the...

Went to the restaurant with a medium sized group, staff were friendly and polite and couldn't do enough to help us, food was fantastic. Each of us had a different meal and everyone enjoyed their dish. Will be going back!

I went to this restaurant with a group of friends. The atmosphere was nice and the staff was friendly. It took a long time for the last few of us to get our drinks (no fancy drinks; just soft drink and beer). The staff didn't seem to understand my dietary requirements (vegan); I talked to two or three different men... More

I've been coming regularly to Cambridge with my work for the last seven years or so and always have dinner here when I do. I think I've tried most of the vegetarian main courses in that time, apart from the seriously spicy ones. My favourites are the dhansak, jalfrezi and paneer green masala, I think, although all have been good.... More
