Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Had a fantastic meal, the food was really delicious, probably the best Dansak you’ll ever have. The curries are not greasy at all. The restaurant is very clean and all the staff are smartly dressed and provide excellent service. Love the new premises, we’ll be...back!More

We found this little gem before they moved in to new premises in White Hart Street. Food is lovely and more than enough of it, the service is great and the owner/manager takes time out to make you feel special each and every time you...visit. We are not the easiest people to please, being Vegan always has its problems, but each and every time the food has been amazing, hot and good quality. Can recommend enough and can't wait to go again! Good luck in your new chapter!More

The new restaurant is much larger than the former premises. The decoration and accoutrements are first class. The staff are all very welcoming, friendly and efficient. The food was excellent. Parking is available within 150 yds. Certainly worth the twenty minute drive to get to...the restaurant. We will be returning very soon. This venture deserves patronage and I feel sure it will be very warmly received within Thetford.More

The New Saffron has traditionally been our favourite Indian Restaurant and I’d rate it the best of any I’ve been to nationwide. The recent move to new premises on White Hart Street has raised the bar even higher with comfortable surroundings, friendly staff and excellent...food making it a special occasion for us. Well worth a visit.More
