When I used to stay in St Davids as a kid, I had to accept that to stay somewhere so remote and beautiful meant not having a curry until I returned home. I am therefore delighted that you can now come here and still enjoy Indian food. Everything we had was really good, and the service was excellent. It's a... More

Booked for early evening on a Monday night just in case - glad we did - when we got there the place was buzzing. The staff were coping calmly and were very welcoming - nothing was too much trouble and the menu was varied and original - not only the normal run of the mill stuff but inventive and new... More

Fairly frequent visitor to Indian restaurants - the subtle flavours of the two Saffron specials we tried, were a welcome surprise. A lamb dish and a duck dish, served with delicious saffron rice. Slightly more expensive than your average. Rather thin house red wine.

We have eaten at the Saffron in 2014 and 2015. This time we had a take away. Some restaurants have a different more restricted take away menu ... not the Saffron ... the whole restaurant menu is available including specials. We had two dishes from the specials ... the King Prawn Zamela and the Lamb Padena. Both dishes were nothing... More

After reading the reviews on tripadvisor I was expecting better, average Indian food over priced, slow service, tried to charge us for items we hadn't ordered, it was very busy but I think that is down to a lack of competition. Sorry but I was not impressed.

Having read reviews on Tripadvisor we visited with an open mind on what the food would be like.Well we should not have worried, I had the lamb begar which arrived in a sizzling dish. I have had similar dishes before and this was up with the best.The 'chilli' heat did not take the taste of the herb and spices away,... More

We ate here as a family whilst on holiday. Really friendly staff and one of the best indian meals we've had. Unfortunately there was a long wait for our main course due to staff shortages but the staff were really apologetic and we got a free naan and money off one of our main courses. Would visit again.

Having been recommended the Saffron by a St David local, we went in on a Monday evening at 6pm-ish, without booking and within 30 minutes it was full with diners, take-away collectors and would-be diners being turned away. My husband and I both ate a starter and main, which both came with rice, plus 1x plain paratha, 2x Cobras and... More

We have been to Saffron in previous years whilst on holiday. As the only curry house in St Davids if you like Indian food this is your only choice. On the day we went it seems they were down on staff in the kitchen. Our food was ok, not the best curry I have had but still nice. The staff... More
