Food is fantastic, service can be a bit slow, but well worth the wait. Good takeaway/delivery service, it's our local spicy gem!

We had a lovely meal here. Although it wasn't to busy service was prompt and efficient. The food was excellent, their was a slight problem with one of the main courses but this was dealt with with out any fuss. Highly recommend.

We had excellent food. I was surprised at how good it was because I think take-aways are not usually as good as the restaurant experience. The portions were a good size. The prawn puree had the right amount of kick and they served the pancake separately so it didn't go soggy. The chicken tikka masala was meaty with a rich... More

We go here quite a bit as we live only a few minutes away by foot. The staff are always highly attentive without being intrusive. The food is some of the best from an Indian restaurant I've had in the UK. Extensive menu which makes up for the only con and that's the decor. Very plain.

Just had a wonderful meal at Saffron. My guy and I were walking the Cotswold Way and were staying in Woodmancote and needed some dinner. A quick walk to the restaurant, no reservation but were seated immediately. Lots to choose from on the menu, we settled on veg pakora, butter chicken and veg tikka masala. All very good and generous... More

When we arrived we were seated at our table, ordered our drinks and I was already impressed with the service at this point. Our only disappointment was that my friend ordered a vegetable dish from the signature meals section of the menu and we were told this was not available, but to make up for this we were offered poppadoms...

Was a nice place, with outside space too, toilets were nice. Naan bread served cold, curry portions good but not of great quality, to summarise, it was ok but wouldn't go back.

I love the Saffron Lounge so much! Ive never had a bad meal here, whether I'm eating in or taking away! The portion sizes are brilliant and the taste of all the dishes are exquisite! They are not too pricey either. When ever we have a family occasion this restaurant is always top of our list!! Love it!
