I came here and had a very good meal. The spicing was good. I had chicken makhana with Nan and dahl.

Service was a little slow but very happy with the meal

Had the most delicious Indian meal ever at saffron. Both my husband and i had starters and main course which were all delicious. The staff were so pleasant and helpful and the service was excellent. I don’t like too spicy and my husband likes extremely spicy both of which were catered for with no problems at all. Delicious meal in a relaxing tho buzzing atmosphere with excellent service. Thank you saffron!

Booked table for 6pm ......got main courses at 7:35. Despite the time afforded ...meals came out wrong and one of the meals ( a bog standard lamb bhuna ) was inedible. Staff response " if you don't like it....you don't like it it". The point is, I ordered it because I actually do like lamb bhuna.....but not the bitter tasting sludge that was served here. Derry has a lot of really nice restaurants...try those instead.

My search for Indian food is Derry landed me here. Tried the Chicken Tikka Masala and Garlic Naan here and didn't like it at all. The gravy was sweet and Naan was extremely thick. The service and ambiance is nice but the food is overpriced and meh. This is not what Indian food tastes like and I don't mean the hot and spicy part. The Indian flavors were just missing.
