We love Safron, either eating in or at home. The staff are always friendly and welcoming. The food quality and quantity is always high and the prices more than reasonable. Well worth a visit, or enjoy home delivery.

Fantastic freshly cooked Indian food - delivery times always accurate and always the opportunity to flex and amend the published order i.e. add / remove ingredients and increase / reduce levels of spice. Service always delivered with a smile.

Really good Indian food, never to sweet ( which can often be a problem with take-away food) and always delivered in a realistic timeframe for freshly cooked food. Love the app for ordering and tracking. A family favorite at the end of a hectic week.

Staying overnight in Watford before going to the Oval test match. Best Indian food we have had since actually being in India in 1985. Quality service , fantastic food. Make the effort to visit, its worth your time.

Went with my two sons for birthday celebration. The interior was beautiful with lots of wooden carvings. The food was very nice and portions are good. Lamb briyani takeaway came with a separate portion of vegie curry. Very nice indeed.

Watford���s Saffron is a popular and sophisticated Indian restaurant serving unusual regional dishes alongside classic curries and just a ten minute walk from the Warner Brothers Harry Potter Studio Tour. The traditional interior, with crisp white tablecloths, dark wooden chairs and white walls decorated with Indian wooden carvings and artworks, is busy with couples and groups in the evenings and increasingly with enthusiastic sightseers keenly dissecting their day spent on the pavements of Hogsmeade. Saffron���s menu is a lengthy selection of fine Indian classics from throughout the country���s many and varied culinary regions. Delicately put together by the kitchen���s skilful team, dishes are distinctive and authentic, spiced ��� the spices ground and mixed freshly each day - and cooked according to tradition whether originating from the sun drenched shores of Goa or from the southern fringes of Bangladesh.
