Description: Watford���s Saffron is a popular and sophisticated Indian restaurant serving unusual regional dishes alongside classic curries and just a ten minute walk from the Warner Brothers Harry Potter Studio Tour. The traditional interior, with crisp white tablecloths, dark wooden chairs and white walls decorated with Indian wooden carvings and artworks, is busy with couples and groups in the evenings and increasingly with enthusiastic sightseers keenly dissecting their day spent on the pavements of Hogsmeade. Saffron���s menu is a lengthy selection of fine Indian classics from throughout the country���s many and varied culinary regions. Delicately put together by the kitchen���s skilful team, dishes are distinctive and authentic, spiced ��� the spices ground and mixed freshly each day - and cooked according to tradition whether originating from the sun drenched shores of Goa or from the southern fringes of Bangladesh.

A little outside central Watford in Courtlands Drive with nearby legal street parking and a local bus service this is one of the family's favourite restaurants to eat in OR for take away. It's also possible to walk to it from the Warner Bros Harry Potter studio tour site (with a map of the area).

It serves some unusual dishes and most of the usual favourites and is usually generous with its portion sizes.

Can't really praise it enough. My 20 year old daughter views this as her best place to celebrate a special occasion when she visits us.

113 Courtlands Drive, Watford, Hertfordshire WD17 4HZ right alongside a great pizza takeaway and very near a near a good Chinese take away too!

Four of us been to this little Saffron hidden from town centre, Very friendly, good food. My only complain was the mixed grill start was not hot, saying that it was very tasty, lamb cooked nice pink(never seen an indian restaurant cooked like that).
"The Naan Bread" I have been to lots of restaurants being living in UK last 10 years, it's safe to say this THE BEST NAAN in the country.

We booked this restaurant as it was convenient location after dropping kids off at harry potter, and we found the food and service excellent. It is about ten minute walk from harry potter. The chicken piri piri was out of this world, I normally have jalfrezi but piri piri will be my preferred choice from now on. Well worth visit.

As we only live across the road, thought it about time we tried this restaurant.
So glad we did, the food was amazing.. Tastiest in watford by far.
Waiting staff were polite, and very friendly.
The only downside to the evening was the wine, I think they can improve there selection,
A nice sweet ros'e would have topped off the evening to perfection
