We booked with some relatives, the food was great including some dishes I had never seen before. The food tasty and a good price. The staff were very friendly and you have a laugh with them. Would definitely recommend

Disappointed with this. King prawns were very small and overcooked. Chicken dish was averaged also and tasted like tinned soup. But to be fair the nan bread was good and when we complained about the prawns they agreed and did not charge us. Maybe worth another chance but not convinced. Also it was freezing cold in there.

We visited Barmouth for our wedding anniversary and chose Saffron for our evening meal. Was slightly unsure at first due to the dated decor but pleasantly surprised by the great food we were served and the service provided by attentive staff. Good food reasonably priced would definitely return and recommend

Called in on a Friday night for a takeaway, restaurant was full but ordering at the front desk only took 2 minutes and instead of waiting where people were eating we popped next door for half hour to have a drink. Order was then ready. Murgh masala was very tasty and so was the Balti and jalfrezi. All polished off... More

Looked online and looked very nice. On arrival bare tables, mess and bottles of ketchup made us have second thoughts. Don't judge a book by its cover though!!! So decided on takeaway instead. Awful. Veg balti was lots of onions and tinned veg in what tasted like a shop bought sauce. Mint yoghurt like minty water and tkka chilli masala?... More

A nice welcome and seating with menus and drinks whilst waiting for a table, even though we had not booked. Go early if you want to do this. Fantastic selection of fish as well as all the usual meat dishes. Very tasty, loved the sag aloo, one if the best I have had.
