We took our son & daughter-in-law here as its just around the corner. Had all of our favorites and more. Wide choice of flavours available. Great tasting and well presented food with attentive friendly service. Good value too.

We were looking around the town for an Indian restaurant and Saffron was rated as a 5 on the Food Safety site- something I always check first. It was a rainy night and we were welcomed with a smile and a handshake by the young man who was our waiter. The restaurant has nicely spaced out tables and it is... More

Second visit here and the service is absolutely excellent - quick and attentive. The food was also very good with a good range of vegetarian options.

Many years ago, I ate here with my old mum who was wary of curry. They could not have looked after her better and cooked anything she wanted. So it was time to return to find a lovely contemporary layout and welcoming staff. The service was exemplorary and the food was delicious if slightly unadventurous. They gave me a card... More

A nice restaurant. The 'three' courses consisted of stale poppadoms - no mango chutney. Starter limited choice of about 3 things , mains more choice but we had a korma and passanda and they tasted exactly the same. The side orders for 4 was actually 2 veg side dishes. No rice or naan bread was included so we had to... More

Good honest food. Was not astounded but food was good and attentive service as it was a Tuesday night. Would come back but if there was somewhere better would try there out first.
