The Saffron is a modern contemporary looking restaurant. If you weren't aware of it, it's hidden away in Gt. Clacton. We have now been numerous times when in the area.
The staff are always friendly and the food is very good always freshly prepared and very tasty with a wide variety of dishes including some I'd never had before.
The service on occasion can be a little slow but not to the detriment of your meal, the atmosphere is possibly the only slight let down, but I think that's more to do with how used you are to noise levels and the fact they do take-aways as well.
Drinks are well priced and the variety is good - the house red wine is surprisingly cheap and surprisingly good.
All in all one to recommend and try!

Great food, great service, very good choice on the menu and staff are happy to change dishes, my last visit we had the set menu, they had a spicy dish on the main menu that I had never had and asked if they would let me have this on the set menu, no problem. Best indian in town and one of the best places to eat locally. Would advise anyone visiting to try it out. The takeaway service is also great.

Really really disappointed with our latest and last ever takeaway. Me and my husband get our weekly takeaway from this place, always pretty much have the same thing, they're always 10/15 mins late but we don't grumble as we usually enjoy the food (when they get the order right) but after our last experience it has simply put us off for ever. After arriving 45 mins late, we open our bag to find the main dish isn't what we ordered but something different!! My husband calls back to let them know its wrong. They asked what we were expecting and then they told us they don't do that dish!! Huh?? We've ordered it plenty of times before!! He then went off for ages to check with someone else and said they think they've changed the way they do it but they'll get another out to us...in half an hour!! The rest of my food would be no good by then, but no offer of the side dishes to be delivered again complimentary!! Then they said they'd take it off the next order...great so I have a naan and rice but no main. My husband told them not to bother we won't order again!! So I sat down anyway to eat my naan and rice to find that actually they were already STONE cold!! So fantastic... My dinner that I've waited nearly 2 hours for is unedible and half missing...and no offer of a refund!! Ill be taking my business to the blue sari in future!!

My boyfriend and I went to the buffet night and had a lovely time. I was worried he may not like it as he is rather fussy with his food. But there was a fab selection of great quality food, the staff made us feel welcomed and were very attentive. We wanted to pass on our thanks to the chef and were greeted to not only friendly staff, but to a clean and modern kitchen. Overall a top experience. We will definately be going back :)
