Very good Indian food and excellent service. Wide variety of dishes and this restaurant will season to the customer's taste.

We have enjoyed eating in this cozy restaurant. This time we picked up and brought home for the family. You can also have it delivered by Uber Eats. All was timely, warm, fresh and delicious. Their nan is the best we've had. Other favorites are Chicken Tika Masala and the Lamb Vindaloo.

Had lunch here recently with colleagues - my first visit. Rather pleased that they offer a lunch menu rather than the ubiquitous buffet which can be too much of a temptation to overindulge. Food was authentic, servings generous and the daal was exceptionally good. Look forward to returning to try another selection.

I'm not the biggest fan of Indian food, but my kids love it. I've been to many Indian restaurants and this was the first one that I actually enjoyed the dinner. All 4 of us thought our dinners were very good.

Reading some of the other reviews I can't help wondering if we came here on a bad night? The appetizers and entrees we ordered were nearly tasteless-- everything needed salt and spice-- meat was tough, and appetizers were lukewarm. Service was lackluster-- we had to ask for water about 3 times, and our servers were a bit sullen. The place... More

very interesting food.. the bread with the almond paste was wonderful. The apps were great too. the rice served separately from the meat and sauce was great. The chicken however was that of a crock pot.. very tough..and on the way out they talked me into fennel seeds and tiny licorice to chew..

My fiancé and I were really craving Indian but we didn't want to eat out. I work near the area so I decided to get take out. They were ready pretty quickly and the food was great. They gave out good portions so we were able to have leftovers! It is average in pricing. It seems to be closer to... More

Excellent onion bhaji - the single starter was huge - certainly ample for 2 people! Had the chicken tikka masala, huge amount of chicken but was underwhelmed by the sauce. Naan was decent. Weirdest bit is the bottled sparkling water on every table - certainly puts you off having some rather than enticing you to get some! Definitely advise leaving... More

We visited Saffron with friends who are knowledgeable about Indian Food; they guided us through the menu and made recommendations. All of the choices made were delicious and not as spicy as expected. Starting with the garlic naan was a great suggestion as well as the samosa dumplings. The chicken and lamb dishes were delicious and beautifully presented. Our server... More

Very good. Excellent service. The medium heat of the fish curry was just right. The Onion Bhajia was excellent and delivered hot and quick from the frier. Basmatti rice was hot and perfectly done.
