We keep coming back to this restaurant for both dine in & take away. Traditional flavours of India at a reasonable price. Friendly helpful staff that listen to their customers.

This place is fantastic. Great food, excellent service and good variety of dishes. Very modern inside and have never had a bad meal here.

We went to the Saffron at the Courthouse this evening. The service was very friendy & very attentive. It was a cold night outside yet the restaurant was balmy warm. We also had the luxury of a heater under the table ensuring we were nice & toasty warm. We have tried many Restaurants since we have moved to Melbourne & we can't reccomend this place enough. The food was BEAUTIFUL & the best we have had. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals & it made my partners birthday a very special night. This place has a great romantic atmosphere & we are definitely heading back again to enjoy it (before everyone else finds out & we can't get a booking,)
Well done & thankyou for a very special night.

Currently the sister restaurant to Saffron Cottage, Saffron at the Courthouse in Berwick, doesn't have a site to post reviews on yet. So I am adding my review here.

The service at 'Saffron at the Courthouse' in Berwick place is awful. Most of the food our party ordered was quite good but good food alone is not enough to make me want to eat here again.

To start with the cocktails didn't arrive at the same time and weren't served to the right people. Next the starter breads arrived, one person's failed to arrived, and it was then disputed that the order was in fact made - despite a discussion with the waitress about the ingredients of this order. When the main courses arrived, again the dishes were not served at the same time, with such a delay that the meals needed to be reheated. Serving hot food in cold dishes results in food that cools very quickly!
Additionally we had to ask for the rice order twice before it appeared.

Finally simple requests such as a jug of water for the table were denied. Instead water glasses were refilled but the jug not left at the table. Having to repeat the request for more water interrupted the meal and the conversation. Surely a jug of water isn't too much to ask?
There were other issues too, but already this review is lengthy!

Due to the repeated problems we'd experienced, we requested a reduction to the bill, as a gesture of good will. At this point things turned nasty and we paid the bill in full before the police were called. We will not be returning!

By far one of our favourite restuarants tucked in the hills of the Dandenong Ranges which we frequent on a regular basis. If you like a good curry you won't be disappointed. Excellent food (a good selection of dishes available) and friendly staff. They will cater to your needs to provide mild, medium or hot curries. It is a very popular restuarant and always busy so book early otherwise you will be disappointed.
