I was in the restaurant with a couple of friends of mine last week. It was a very nice experience as we all love Indian cuisine. I should say that the food was great, especially liked the mixed vegetables with chicken bhuna and naan bread and popdumps. We did enjoy the food, the service was good but when we came... More

First let me say this is a good Indian restaurant. We were looking forward to returning as two years ago we had one of the best Indian meals we had ever had anywhere here. Our first disappointment was that the menu had changed and was now just the generic bog standard Indian menu you find everywhere, with no intriguing sounding... More

It was 6pm and Pashmina, the wonderful indian restaurant, was not open for another half hour. Should we wait, my wife and I wondered, well it turns out we should have. When we got our table, the restaurant was fairly empty, but others came in soon behind us. We ordered quickly as we had our 3 year old with us.... More

I was not expecting much having had great Indian food in New York City but this far exceeded my expectations

We've been there few months ago in family and came back just the 2 of us. We ordered some pickles (fresh and delicious) and some veggies curry (amazing) and spinach chicken (sauce delicious). We had a very tasty and nice dinner. Service was perfect. I highly recommend!

Never in our lives have we tasted food so awful, as nice as what the waiter was, the lady sat in the corner didn't take her eyes off us, really off putting seen as we just wanted a romantic night out. Food was nothing special, ended up leaving the main as both myself and my partner felt it all just... More

We went on what must have been the wettest evening in Luz, the welcome was warm and friendly. The food was superb. The king prawns were huge and very tasty. Would definitely recommend this one!

We visited with friends, who are regulars. We were promised a great meal and that's what we got. I ordered Chicken Pathia - my usual. It wasn't on the menu, but no problem. And it was excellent- as good as my favourite UK restaurant. We returned two nights later and whilst it was quiet (Sunday night in November) we enjoyed... More

There were very few restaurants open on a Monday in November, so we chose Saffron... the staters wee mediocre, lacking in spice and flavour... we had samosas which were thick and not well filled and the sheek kebab was dull and probably not cooked in the tandoor.... so disappointing. The mango and lamb curry, however, was much better with good... More
