“Even the Americans were impressed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2012

Yet another excellent meal in the Saffron Lounge, very efficient service, the food was piping hot and of very quality and was authentic Indian food not curry recipes rehashed to meet the taste of the masses- the Saag Paneer is to die for and one of our american guests said she could eat the Korma everyday but we have discovered that american tastes are not attuned to spice and heat but they loved the food anyway

“Decent food but service is average at best”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2012

Visited after shopping in Stamford. Arrived at 1:30pm and asked if still serving lunch, only to receive a abrupt reply that they close at 2:30. Didn't make us feel very welcome.
Food was actually very good but let down by waiters leaving restaurant unattended for long periods at a time. When we asked for the air conditioning to be turned off to stop a cold draft, our request was ignored.

“Good food, good vibes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2012

As strangers, entering a restaurant where large groups are eating and obviously enjoying themselves, sends out good vibes. The tables are well spaced, the music and decor subdued, the service excellent and the food delicious - ideal for a wet night

“Wide choice of fusion food - excellent value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2012

If you like Indian/Asian food for not a lot of money then this is the place to come. £11.95 buys you a starter, main, vegetable dish, rice and naan. The food is tasty and they aren't afraid to make some of the dishes properly spicy.

The uninspiring decor and the average service lets it down a little otherwise I would give it the full 5 stars.
