“Good Stuff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2012

We went out to the Saffron one Saturday evening to celebrate a birthday. I had telephoned in the morning and left an answer message asking them to ring me so I could book a table. No problems. They rang me and booking confirmed. The restaurant actually gets very busy but they never rush you or try to make you leave when your meal is complete. The food was tasty, hot and fresh and everyone enjoyed their meal. I found it to be quite reasonably priced considering the volume of food that was placed on the table.
The restaurant itself was clean and staff are polite.

“run of the mill Indian restaurant”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2012

have used this restaurant a couple of times as i only live 200 yards away (takeaway only) nice decor, 2nd rate food, everything just tastes the same no matter what you order, the main issue i have with this place is the swearing i hear from the same people just drinking at the bar (not eating) and the management don't seem to care that much, if you want a nice quiet evening go somewhere else,

“Possibly the best Indian we have been to”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2012

We live in the Midlands and have been to Birmingham enough times to know a decent Balti. My partner rarely eats anything other than Baltis when she goes for a curry and she said that the one here was possibly the best she had had. This includes trips to the infamous Balti Triangle in Birmingham. The portion sizes are plentiful - she had a naan bread with the Balti and we ordered a rice between us and that was enough, especially with the quality and quantity of the dishes themselves. There are also 6 dips for the papadoms which was nice as usually there is not as much choice.

Staff at the restaurant were very friendly and attentive and the décor was great too. The bill was slightly more than I was expecting (£32 for 2 dishes, 1 rice, 4 papadoms and 3 drinks) but the food was excellent. Our only real complaint is that Clacton is too far to go from home!!!
