Went here on our first night of our first family holiday with our 6 month old son. We were made to feel very welcome, the atmosphere was great and the food was top drawer, delightful! I had the nicest Chicken Tikka starter I have ever had, the meat would melt in your mouth. The curries for main were delicious also and cooked to the customers requirement which was also impressive. Pradeep made us feel at home, he was very attentive and the experience was so good that we returned later in the Holiday. Off to Vilamoura in a few weeks and will miss this indian! Thanks again Pradeep, love Mark, Janet and Ethan from Belfast. xo

We had a wonderful meal here(4 in our party and everyone enjoyed). Our waiter was very attentive and good fun. He gave us a great choice of accompaniments for our poppadoms... All great. Free Wifi.

I've reviewed this before on my last trip to Luz. We couldn't wait to go back as its one of the nicest Indian restaurants we have ever been in. It's not the decor, it's very much standard Indian restaurant, it's the welcome you get from the owners and the wonderfully delicious Indian food, all cooked fresh and made to order, nothing is pre-prepared.
Not sure if we'll be back in luz for a while but Saffron is the only restaurant ill really miss.

The reviews suggested that this would be an exceptional Indian but whilst the food was OK it was by no means exceptional. The curries were a little sweet (this seems to be much more common now) and not as spicy os one would expect. House wine was out of a box and of poor quality. Service was attentive

Had a meal at Saffron after seeing it was so highly rated. Maybe we are just used to a higher standard in Glasgow, but my tandoori and tikka meats weren't cooked in a tandoor and had a pre processed quality to them. Maybe the basic curry dishes were better.

Service was quite slow but pleasant, but there did only seem to be one waiter.

Overall OK.
