The food was excellent, very tasty but the service was very slow. We were a table of six but waiting nearly an hour for our meals was not good.

We arrived without having made a reservation and were warmly greeted and shown to our table. The staff were excellent throughout the evening and were friendly and attentive but not "pushy". The food was absolutely superb - quantities were excellent and for me it was the best Indian meal I have had for a long time. One friend, who has... More

Nice Indian food. Great spice and reasonably priced. Had a train to catch, but got our food very quickly even if the restaurant was packed.

I came to the UK to study, but I stayed for the curries and Saffron Brasserie is always a good choice. The staff is always friendly and personal, and the food of a much higer quality than the price suggests. My vegetarian wife agrees.

We were pleasantly greeted and service was just the right pace, not too slow and not too quick. The food was very tasty and good quality and there was nice buzz to the place without it being too manic or loud. If we lived nearby we'd definitely return.
