Polite service. Food is nice. Nothing exceptional but if you are fond of lamb and kebabs you will like this place. Decor very simple. Toilets are a nightmare.

I visited Saffron last Christmas and really enjoyed my visit. The food was really really good, and the staff were very friendly and the prices were also very reasonable. A very good experience. Best wishes in the future, Alex.

Came here for a birthday meal with some family members. Pros: The restaurant has a nice atmosphere, the food is delicious and very flavourful. The vegetarian selection, especially for the starters, is extensive. They were also very kind in bringing out my surprise birthday cake....More

Food here was very good. We had aubergine stew and lamb kebab with films and Persian bread. It was all delicious. It's also reasonably priced. Definitely recommend.

Food was like a kebab shop but at inflated prices. And yes, there was a mouldy lemon in my glass with the £4 water 🤢

Saffron serves traditional Persian food. Beautiful meat dishes and vegetarian ones too. The rice is so light and fluffy. The bread and dips were very good. I highly recommended the spinach and yoghurt. A fine evening.
