“sounded good.......”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013

This was not as good as it claimed nor considering the price. It had expensive presentation, but the food was not up to it's presentation. I am used to flavoursome curries from my local and used to Birmingham Balti triangle this was not as good. We both had the Thali, mine veggie his meat, we had the same sauces just beans for me and a bit of meat for him, given the price we paid, 18 and 20 euros it was not good enough. It may be the best in the area, but what is that standard?

“Best Indian in the area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2013

I have lived on the coast here for 10 years, but ate for the first time at Saffron. It is the best Indian restaurant in the area by far, very good food and service, great decor and fair prices. Would definitely recommend.

“Obligatory Curry”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

Wherever we visit a curry is a must. We took a drive out from our hotel and found this place located just off the main road linking Marbella right up the coast to Malaga.
Heading in the direction of Marbella, as you travel via Elvira this is on the right hand side.
My usual is a vindaloo, but chose a Madras this time, it was as hot as I would go, so glad to have avoided the Vindy. The food was absolutely first class.
Poppadums were fresh the Bhajis were superb as was the veg. samosas My partner had the Bhuna which she was very impressed with.
Good choice of beers available and very attentive waiters speaking excellent English.
If you enjoy your curry then this is a MUST. My only criticism would be that more chicken needed to be in my dish.
The meal for two including 3 large beers was about 35.00 euros.

“Authentic curry on the costa!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2012 via mobile

Lovely staff, food great quality. Little quiet the night we went but you didnt feel uncomfortable. Decor cute, you are just up alongside the N340 but didnt upset the atmosphere. Really would recommend if you are in need of a curry fix. Would recommend the fish curry special. Very good.

“Would not Recommend”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2012

We went here during our stay at the Estrella del mar over the road and have to say this was one of the worst experiences I have had. Not sure what the other reviewers expectations were or whether we just were there on a bad day but the onion bharji was greasy, the naan bread fell apart, the chicken was dry (quite a feat considering it was in a sauce), however the rice was nicely cooked.

Not somewhere I would advise anyone to visit but you never know we could just have gone on an off day.
