I ate here with a few of my colleagues. While it definitely wasn't bad it also wasn't the best Indian I've had. They didn't have quite a few of the wines on their wine list but we weren't too fussed as there were other options. We shared a banquet and everything was fine. We ran out of naan bread so... More

Have eaten from the restaurant and has been nice. Ordered food to be delivered and it arrived about 30 mins after estimated delivery time. It was cold and very disappointing, also part of our delivery was misplaced or forgotten. When I rang back to ask where the rest of it was, I was told it was on the way. Another... More

Great Indian restaurant which is let down by the very cold air conditioning. Can be quite off putting if you are seated in-front of the A/C. The quality of food has always been very good and certainly worth a visit. The restaurant is not fine dining. They also do take away which sometimes takes over from the restaurant service. The...

Never had any real issues with Saffron other than the feeling that you'd best be gone as soon as possible. The lack of hospitality reached a new low the other day when I dined there with clients recently for lunch. At 1.50 pm we were told the restaurant was closing at 2 pm. Given that our meals were yet to... More

A delightful venue for a romantic couples night out or a group. The food was fresh, tastebud tantalisingly delicious! Service was good. We had lamb rogan josh and the chicken 65 Masala and butter naan. Tip : the Sweet potato chips as a shared starter were just right
