“Saffron restaurant does the business with style.”
Reviewed May 17, 2012

This excellent Asian eatery has come through its schizophrenic episodes and has settled as really super place to relax with friends over some of the best curries you will taste.
Live music still remains and is still jazzy. I often find live music a bit intrusive during a meal but that's probably more to do with dodgy hearing which seems to prove with internal application of alcohol (I soon enjoyed it!).
There was almost too much choice. The helpful and discrete waiter pointed out that half portions at half the price were available, and recommended two or three half portions each which we agreed on.
Shared starters, a Peshawari naan, one rice, a doza(tubular looking stuffed bread thingy), spiced onions, papadoms, three soft drinks and 1.5 pints of Tiger ear medicine. Night out for 4 people:£58 plus tip! Super food. Not a scrap left! Just go!

I have tried countless wonderful indian restaurants in London, none of them compare to this. The food was outstanding with service to match.

“Finally tried Balbirs southside restaurant....not disappointed.”
Reviewed March 25, 2012

Having been a fan of the Balbirs restaurants in Church street and the a77 for a while, we decided to try the Saffron Lounge to entertain visiting family. It goes without saying that the food is good just like their other premises but their speciality is small size half portions that allow you to sample double the amount of dishes!
The biggest difference with the other restaurants is the atmosphere.....the live music and the decor give it a great ambience even when it isnt busy. After we finished the meal we retired to the bar area for coffee and cocktails which finished off the evening perfectly. My only critisism is that its a bit far away for regular visits!
