The owner and the staff are so lovely and make sure you have a good evening with a buzzing atmosphere. I initially booked from hearing from others how great the food is, and can definitely say that the chicken karahi and... More

Got takeaway from here because it had good ratings on trip advisor, warning to anyone reading it genuinely is horrible food I don't know if they have had a new chef or change of hands since these people went here but the food was inedible.

With the main course we had the usual naans, Bombay potatoes and mushroom rice. We also found these to be enjoyable. The restaurant is quite small. Service was friendly but slow. I... More

Visited with my wife when staying in the Hunton Park Hotel. Restaurant about 5 mins away in the car. Saw the great reviews here so decided to visit. Had a great meal which we shared 2 curries and some sides. Tried a Bangladesh beer which was really nice and crisp. Complemented the curry perfectly. Next time we are in Watford... More

After travelling several hours from South Wales, and an extra hour in city traffic, a hot, fresh, authentic curry was just what we needed. My husband and I looked straight on Trip Advisor after arriving and immediately made way to the Saffron. We were so glad we did! Staff were friendly and there was a fantastic atmosphere, even on a...

We are an Indian family who sometimes can't be bothered to cook so will get an Indian takeaway! Food is always authentically good!

Watford���s Saffron is a popular and sophisticated Indian restaurant serving unusual regional dishes alongside classic curries and just a ten minute walk from the Warner Brothers Harry Potter Studio Tour. The traditional interior, with crisp white tablecloths, dark wooden chairs and white walls decorated with Indian wooden carvings and artworks, is busy with couples and groups in the evenings and increasingly with enthusiastic sightseers keenly dissecting their day spent on the pavements of Hogsmeade. Saffron���s menu is a lengthy selection of fine Indian classics from throughout the country���s many and varied culinary regions. Delicately put together by the kitchen���s skilful team, dishes are distinctive and authentic, spiced ��� the spices ground and mixed freshly each day - and cooked according to tradition whether originating from the sun drenched shores of Goa or from the southern fringes of Bangladesh.
