Everytime I order Indian from this restaurant, I'm always amazed at how amazing it tastes. The waitress always recommends something to us, and we always get it, along with our staple favourite Paneer Butter Masala. Best onion bhajis ever! One of the best I have tried since visiting India. Will always be my favourite place to go when I want... More

Bought a large takeaway order & had to travel half hour home before we ate. All was very nice and family enjoyed. Be good to eat in restaurant & have it served immediately . Do plan to go back again & do this.

Had very bad 'stomach issues' after dining at this restaurant. I will never eat there again. Nice décor but that's about it.

Visited here for dinner while staying overnight. Superb value for money as the portions were quite generous and the quality of the food was excellent also. I was both surprised and impressed and would recommend it .

We come here all the time. Naan bread is amazing. We alway have it slightly undercooked. As we don't like it to crispy. All in in. Food is already yum. Quick. And staff are a pleasure to talk too.

Take-away option available. Good venue for large groups. Authentic Indian food, reasonably priced and extensive menu. No frills restaurant but welcoming. Seems that take away is more popular than dining in so you may have to wait longer than advised if ordering over the phone.

Amazing Naan bread. The spinach and cheese is so good. The dishes can be hit and miss though there seems to be a change from last time as more flavour and less thickness.

Have been to Cafe Saffron a number of times now and the food and service have been great every time. My daughter and friends quite often get take away and always enjoy it. We were the only ones having lunch last time, I hope more people frequent this restaurant so we don't lose this excellent business.

Have been here a few times for birthdays, I love spicy food and when they asked me how hot I want my food I told them really hot, they delivered, it was so hot I had to eat in intervals, but it tasted quite good, I do wish they'd use better parts of the chicken however but other than that... More
