Dined here several evenings during a business trip to Tunbridge Wells. The restaurant is somewhat dated and the toilets are in need of refurbishment. The staff are however very welcoming and accommodating and the quality of the food is commensurate with the price. I intend to visit again.

Four of us went for a family meal in the evening. Couldn't fault the food or service and also great value for money! Attentive service yet unobtrusive and very tasty dishes for us all to try. First time here - will be back! Heartily recommend the motor poneer side dish along with your normal main dishes. Lush!

As a regular visitor to Oz and the team at Saffron I can confirm that the wide variety of curries on offer are fantastic.

Not a bad curry . Prices for food are reasonable compared to others in the area . Service can be very slow at times along with the delivery service but generally worth the wait...

When we fancy a curry night we always get it from Saffron. Why try other places when the food and service is consistently good.

A big thank you to Saffron who we invaded for my 40th birthday on Saturday night. With a party of 11 we had a great time. The food was excellent as was the service and all very reasonable. I celebrated my 30th there as well so it just goes to show how good the restaurant and service is!
