Used to love this place. But the last couple of visits have been really dissapointing.Tastless food.Customer service is poor. The fish (if there actually was any fish!) Was in a mushy batter in the curry sauce. Two people had different fish dishes and both refused to pay as they were that bad..Bombay potatoes were the most flavourless I've ever had.They... More

We are frequent visitors to this restaurant but tonight's experience means we will not return. I was served raw chicken on my plate and when we spoke to the waiter he could care less. He said it was the same chicken as my friends and hers was ok! You could clearly see mine was raw. While we were talking my... More

This wasn't our first visit here, we went on a set meal night when you get 4 course meal for less than a £10. Food and service were excellent if I was to moan about anything it would be my coke it tasted cheep. Great night out 👍

I've been going to this restaurant on and off since it opened... The food is always 'spot on' and fairly priced. What does confuse me is that there's hardly ever anyone in there when we visit therefore it lacks atmosphere. If you want a curry ... Go there !!

Have been here a few times, the food is always good, and great value for money. It's never been that busy when I have visited, so service has been good.

Visited saffron a couple times however this Friday night has had to be the best meal we've had there. The 4 of us liked the food as per usual however the service was what we appreciated the most. Unlike many other restaurants where waiters simply ask what drinks you want and serve them and stay away to then come back... More

Went to the Saffron along with five others for a Durasteel "ex-pats" night out in January. Excellent service and excellent food, good menu - we will certainly be going there again.

Visited Sunday evening and I got all this for only £8.95. Cheap and quick service. The buffet includes any 5 items and I was stuffed!! It was enough to share. Will go back when I want a cheap refuel. Just surprised only one table was occupied when I arrived.
