I'm a local so a bit bias. But I love the fact that they will always adjust their curry for you. If you like the flavour of a Balti but find it hot tell them and they will tone it down or vice versa. There no limit to a great curry experience here.

Iam sure they are all... More

Went for a curry on my birthday, at 7pm, no other diners for most of our time there. The radiators were not on before we arrived, so colder than comfortable. Service very good (but no other diners). Food was very good, freshly prepared, & hot. Portions were of ample size. Suggest arrive later maybe for better experience.

We are always greeted with a smile, seated and soon have water with lemon or lime, and beer and wine as requested. Saffron is simply one of the best Indian style restaurant in... More

We often go to Saffron for lunch. Our favorite is Tandoori Chicken which is the best I've ever tasted. The service is good and the special lunch of two courses is also tasty and good value. It is very clean and the service is good which is important if you have to go back to work in the afternoon.
