I and a friend recently ate at Saffron lounge it was my first time there and we were told it was buffet to order beginning with the starters and we were told we could go back to starters after we have made our way through the courses of the menu. Not that I'd ever have the desire to eat so much food then start again, I was satisfied and full up but my friend was interested in having one starter again. However, as soon as we had finished our mains and sides the waiter quickly removed all our plates and put the bill on the table without asking us if we wished to eat more and they are supposed ask.

Loved visiting this busy and friendly Indian Restaurant before they moved to Stamford. But now it is closer to home we like it even more. Great value for money in an excellent location. Great quality and quantity of delicious food for the money. There is also a wide range of Thai food available which you can pick and mix with the Indian options. The lunchtime offers are also value for money. The staff are very professional and friendly. The only downside is that it seems to have lost some of the atmosphere since changing location but hopefully it will become more lively as their reputation spreads locally.

So wanted this to be good but it just wasn't and with no redeeming features! Eaten at the Saffron Lounge once before & it was ok alwAys heard good things when it was at its previous location. Booked for 9 people on a Saturday at 20:00 and we were sat out in a freezing lean to area with no heating and forgotten about for 30mins. Got drinks from a very surly waiter, horrible flat coke for the non drinkers changed to horrible flat lemonade! Starters ordered the Thai mixed starter was abysmal The luke warm mains came, oh dear! Out of 9 main dishes only the lamb dish was any good the rest were bland and not appetising! I've never had prawn toast with no prawns??? The chicken dishes were all awful the meat was just not nice! We paid extra for prawn dishes but again they were tasteless, cold and nobody wanted to finish them. We asked for some heating on but were told no as the whole building would need to go on, they did bring us a heater, when we asked for it to be placed at the end of the table the waiter said 'do you think I'm going to stand here & hold it?!' We didn't see the waiter again so no drinks, no other food & then at the end they did appear, no coffee or desserts offered only the bill. The team were not welcoming, not interested & didn't even say goodbye so absolutely no redeeming features at all we certainly won't be hurrying back.

We went with friends for a meal on Sunday evening. We were the only diners in the restaurant so had good service from the one member of staff. The meal is a set price, i think under £10 for a Sunday. For this you have a starter, main course, rice or nan and a side dish. The drinks are a little expensive but they have to make their money some how! I had Chicken tikka starter followed by Chicken Sashlic and rice with a sag aloo washed down with copious amounts of Cobra . We were all in agreement that the meal was good but fell short of excellent and a reasonable price. My only criticism would be the upstairs walk to the toilets which was a bit drab and the toilets themselves were in need of clean and air freshener.
