“A "buffet" Jim, but not as we know it!”

The advert outside said there was a buffet. We're not huge buffet fans (ironically buffet fans are often huge) but we love Thai food so we went in. It's a lovely restaurant and not very big. There was one waiter serving and he was working very hard indeed. We kept looking for the buffet table but couldn't find one. It turns out that the "buffet" is not really a buffet. You order any starter and any main course for £9.95 (£11.95 on Fri and Sat) and then it's served just as happens in any restaurant! Anyway, the overworked waiter and his kitchen staff gave us one of the best Thai meals we have experienced. Everything was excellent and perfectly spaced time-wise. The waiter was brilliant and handled the restaurant expertly.

We visit The Saffron often! The food is always so tasty and such good value for money. The drinks are a little pricey but is to be expected when the food is so cheap!

The best Indian around over, Bourne, Stanford, Deeping and Peterborough!

The waiter who looks slightly like Mr T (he knows we call him this) is always so friendly and welcoming!

Great place, great food and all with a lovely atmosphere!

Always go mid week as it's such good value for the quality and quantity of food.

Waiters are usually pretty good but can be a bit miserable at times, love the selection of food and the beers are good.

Have had a few issues with take outs but nothing major.

Always go back for a cheap, good quality meal.
