Have visited Blue Saffron regularly since it opened, and was mightily impressed with the quality and flavour of the food. A real difference from most other local Indian Restaurants. And here comes the but...... BUT ate there recently, new menu, new name and although the staff are attentive and friendly the quality of the dining experience has plummeted...... I am so sad to say this but the food was nowhere near the quality of previous visits - seemed to be cheap ingredients with no individual flavours discernible. Very sorry but won't be returning any time soon.

The place is very welcoming, the staff are friendly. Been here a couple of times. Fantastic food and nice surroundings. Excellent value for money. Well worth it.

I popped into this Restaurant on my way home on Friday evening and wanted to share my findings. The Restaurant will be changing its name to 'Eastern Spice' in the next few weeks and is in the process of adopting a 'New Menu' as it is under new ownership. I thought this was the case when I visited last month and I was told the menu is much better value as the majority of dishes as well as wines have been reduced in price. I had come in to take a collection home and spent a while discussing with the new proprietor their ideas for the new business. They were very keen on growing the collection and delivery business and specifically focusing on speed and reliability of service but without compromising on quality. Whilst I was talking to them they very kindly brought me a couple of the starter dishes to try 'gratis' and I can really recommend the 'Sweet Chilli Poneer' made with Home made Indian Cheese which was absolutley delicious. If you like heat in your food this certainly had the kick from the tiny green Chillies but was offset with a wonderful sweetness. I took home a Meat Madras which equally had some great heat but not so much that it detracted from the lovely flavour of the sauce. I think the new management will bring a fresh impetus to this business and will be a wonderful addition for the people of the surrounding area of Mill End, Maple Cross, Rickmansworth, Chorleywood and Croxley Green. I think they even mentioned they may be looking to expand the delivery business to Northwood in the future. Inside the Restaurant it is still as cosy as ever and all the facilities are extremely clean. Would certainly recommend highly. They have also recently had Cobra beer installed on pump something that I was unable to take full advantage of as I was driving!!!

Service is excellent, not like some other places where half the staff don't understand orders or English for that matter. Service is quick and made to order.

Food is full of flavour and excellent value for money, me and my friends had no problems in our meal. Would recommend anyone to try the place out, specially if your going in groups.
