Arrived to find a lively and friendly atmosphere created in no small part by a team of enthusiastic waiters. They soon had me seated and feeling at home. I had a couple of beers and a relaxed read through the menu. Popadoms - really good...Onion bahjee - flat style, really nice, not at all greasy Tandoori full chicken - simply superb, moist, well marinated and a great side order of fresh veg. Faultless Left as another happy customer - Highly recommendedMore

I come across to this part of the country for work and always make sure to visit the New Saffron as their food is superb. I got chatting to the owner last week who claimed to do a mean Madras... I came back this evening...and was not dissapointed. The Madras was really good, a thick rich flavoursome sauce and the heat was spot on. It's clear they're passionate about their menu and this is reflected the food - top notch!More

We called to reserve a table at 6pm and was seated by 6.30, the service was speedy and friendly, and we were advised what to eat according to our regular knowledge of Indian cuisine ( we had never eaten Persian style Indian food before) we...had 3 starters between us so we could try the items that were appealing, each one of them was divine, tasty, tender and full of flavour. I myself love fish curry, and I wasn’t disappointed it was delicious and there was plenty of it, along with my choice of lemon rice it was a very satisfying meal. Congratulations to Mr Saffron and his team, you have a cracking little establishment there and I wish you every success. Thank you for an outstanding meal, we will highly recommend you to our friends and family.More

It was a quiet Monday night and the restaurant was quiet. We had two starters which were very tasty and obviously freshly cooked. Main courses were also very good. Reasonable prices and a broad menu. I recommend this restaurant.

We placed an order online at 6pm yesterday. The website stated the order would take 65 minutes. Unfortunately we were still waiting at 8pm, when we phoned to find out why our order hadn’t arrived they hung up on us! Our order then arrived, when...we asked why the delay we were told it was because they were very busy. Despite the delay most of the food was very good although the king prawn dish did only have three prawns in it.More

First time ordering from here due to moving.. Ordered a takeaway online Saturday evening. I'm very fussy when it comes to Indian as I have worked at two different Indian restaurants; inside and out, however I was not disappointed! Food arrived very quickly, was hot,...fresh and delicious!! Reminded me of being back at the job I used to love!! I have found my local Indian after trying a few!! Can't wait to order again! 😁 Only thing I will suggest is to be careful on delivery as the weight from the top caused the curry at the bottom to leak a little which I know is a common issue due to delivering in the past myself!More
