Found the saffron many years ago, and have never been disappointed with the food... you may have to wait (especially with takeaway) but it's super fresh quality curry's, love the Fish Garlic Bhuna..... Staff always very sociable, supper clean.... and a very reasonable price.... A*****

We ordered a takeaway yesterday at 6pm and we were told it would be 45 mins which is great. By 8pm the order still hadn't arrived so we called to ask about it just in case. We were then told 'leaving now' very abruptly and they hung up the phone. Not even an apology. We did not take the order... More

Having a food allergy makes it tricky finding a nice Indian restaurant /takeaway but this place made it so easy. I told them of my issue and they helped me have the meal I wanted without having to worry about having a reaction. I would very highly recommended saffron for their delicious food and lovely staff. 10 out if 10.

Had a family celebration at home, so I ordered 4 different Currie's for the family, they came within the hour. Popadomms and 3 dips included in the price, wonderful. They were hot and very tasty, love the onion rice.:-)
