The premises are bright, modern and attractive. The menu was fairly typical Asian food, with a range of interesting dishes. The honey on the pashwari nan gave it a beautiful flavour. Service was average really, but the manager quickly attended when necessary. We had been recommended that this was one of the best of the many asian restaurants in Knowle, although there are others that would certainly compete for that title. However, worth a visit.

When my daughters still lived at home we often came here for family celebrations but haven't been for a while . As they were home for Christmas we thought we'd give it a try and were not disappointed . Service was, as ever, friendly and efficient and the food was excellent. Bill was £82 for 5 of us, -and there was enough for a 'doggy bag' for my daughter's boyfriend's lunch the following day . (That's another thing I like about this place- they are always genuinely happy to pack up the left- overs for you ) I think they have redecorated since we were last there-it looked very clean and stylish.
The place was nearly full at 6.30 and full when we left at 8 (Friday 27th) so was glad we'd booked. It was obvious there were lots of locals/regulars, including two Asian families.

We meet up most Mondays and continue to be impressed by the high standards. Cafe Saffron deserves top marks.

By far the best Chicken Tikki Masala in the area !!
When the craving hits, this is the place to go.
Usually quite busy so a reservation is needed.
