We had the strange and rare experience of walking into an empty restaurant, not sure that it was actually open and standing waiting for staff to appear. After two minutes somebody did appear and normality resumed. The restaurant needs some TLC as it is a little worn round the edges. The wall next to the edge of our table was... More

over many years and many visits this restaurant has let me down - supposed to be the order of sophistication - cold food and drab service with 5 visits - just not nice food in general

We were looking around the town for an Indian restaurant and Saffron was rated as a 5 on the Food Safety site- something I always check first. It was a rainy night and we were welcomed with a smile and a handshake by the young man who was our waiter. The restaurant has nicely spaced out tables and it is... More

Many years ago, I ate here with my old mum who was wary of curry. They could not have looked after her better and cooked anything she wanted. So it was time to return to find a lovely contemporary layout and welcoming staff. The service was exemplorary and the food was delicious if slightly unadventurous. They gave me a card... More

I was invited here for a casual supper recently by an Indian friend. I also visit India a couple of times a year. I found my food to be absolutely delicious and I was served one of the best meals I have eaten outside of India. The staff are very friendly and if I am in the area again, I... More
