“The best curry house in Cambridge”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

The best curry house in Cambridge, and perhaps the UK. They are also coeliac aware, which is a lifesaver for me :o)

I've been visiting this restaurant for the best part of five years - so you could say that I'm a regular! I do not have a bad word to say about the staff, service or the quality of food.

If you have a chance, check out the Lamb Kashmiri - it's rather awesome and not the flaccid "Kashmiri" that is served with lychees found in other restaurants.

“Our favourite local curry house”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

The Saffron Brasserie is the only place me and my boyfriend go for a curry in Cambridge. The staff are always friendly and the food is always excellent. I'm vegetarian and there are a good range of vegetarian options (although the veg bhuna is my favourite and I rarely change from this!)

“One of our favourites”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

Me and my boyfriend go to Saffron Brasserie very regularly, at least twice a month... it is one of our favourite places in Cambridge!!! Amazing food, excellent service and the staff is suuuper friendly. Overall a great atmosphere, and good for all occasions. We are always seated almost straightaway, and food arrives very quickly. Very nice and diverse manu, for all types of tastes - we are particularly fans of all the mild, sweet curries. Definitely recommend it, a must go!!! Great job guys!

“Amazing...”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

Ate here on Saturday night and was impressed with the service and food - we had to wait a bit for a table (only about 10 minutes) but the waiters gave us updates on when our table would be available and generally were very friendly and helpful. The food was amazing as well - we ordered the Sheek Kebab, Sag Aloo, Khorai Lamb and a couple other dishes and they were all delicious. Overall, a very memorable meal! Very well priced too.

“Reasonably priced, excellent food”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

We only discovered this Indian restaurant last week - and went back the next day because we liked it so much. There is plenty of choice and the 5-tier 'chilli-scale' on the menu is a very useful guide to how hot the various dishes are. The menu also provides quite detailed descriptions of the ingredients involved. Prices are reasonable and service was efficient and friendly. We certainly intend to return here on a future visit to Cambridge.
