Over priced tasting menu was all there was on offer on a Sunday night. Vegetarian option was awful. Staff unfriendly and humourless.

Well worth a trip to this fine dining indian restaurant. We eat out regularly and travel extensively and this restaurant was outstanding. We chose from the a la carte menu and enjoyed everything we ate. I particularly enjoyed the monkfish starter. Highly recommended.

Description
Saffrons cuisine is the healthy balance and combination of Indian spices and local ingredients."The unusual combination of spices used successfully creates an amazing yet healthy dining experience. The result - lighter and healthier dishes, but still with the intense flavours that make Indian cooking so unique. All the taste but none of the cholesterol.The Concept:The Foundation of our cooking is based on sourcing quality local products. By utilizing such products as hand dived scallops, line caught sea bass and local vegetables, we are having products at their peak quality at the right time (seasonality) and reducing food miles which affects the quality of the product as well as the environment.The Technique:The cooking methods are inspired from different regions of India; seafood recipes from Goa to richer dishes from Punjabi in the north. We utilize a clay oven, called Tandoor, to retain the authenticity of such dishes as Naan bread and all Tandoories. Modern European techniques such as slow cooking, low temperature and sous-vide are used to perfect the blend of spices and quality of the product.The Presentation:Dishes are presented simply in a modern European way, letting the food 'do-the-talking' rather than masking the food in heavy garnishing and sauces. The essence is to retain the intensity of flavours but allow for lighter and healthier dishes.
