Just had a takeaway delivered from this restaurant. We like Indian food as my husband loves spicy food which I don't, but I love the flavours in the milder dishes. How disappointed I was to find that every single item I ordered was totally bland and tasteless! I could have been eating cardboard and even after adding extra salt it... More

Always visit when I can, and if I can't, I always order a takeaway. Food is always second to none, and I'm never disappointed. Love ordering the chicken tikka, portions are huge and I am always left feeling satisfied. Great place to come with family or friends, the owner is always happy to help and recommend the best drinks and... More

As a newly engaged couple we decided to have our last date night at Saffron. To our pleasant surprise, not only was the food incredibly tasty, but it arrived quickly and the service was second to none. We spent longer than planned soaking in the friendly atmosphere and the manager took genuine interest in us. We cannot recommend it highly... More

We came here for a family meal on a Friday night and as expected it was busy. Our orders were taken quickly with the only gripe being the pace of service from then on. But with this taken out of the equation the rest of the experience was very good. We all ordered our own mains and then shared a... More

Great service. The food was delicious and tasty. It was freshly cooked and wasn't greasy like some can be.

Watford���s Saffron is a popular and sophisticated Indian restaurant serving unusual regional dishes alongside classic curries and just a ten minute walk from the Warner Brothers Harry Potter Studio Tour. The traditional interior, with crisp white tablecloths, dark wooden chairs and white walls decorated with Indian wooden carvings and artworks, is busy with couples and groups in the evenings and increasingly with enthusiastic sightseers keenly dissecting their day spent on the pavements of Hogsmeade. Saffron���s menu is a lengthy selection of fine Indian classics from throughout the country���s many and varied culinary regions. Delicately put together by the kitchen���s skilful team, dishes are distinctive and authentic, spiced ��� the spices ground and mixed freshly each day - and cooked according to tradition whether originating from the sun drenched shores of Goa or from the southern fringes of Bangladesh.
