Saffron is by far the best restaurant in Halton. (Widnes, Runcorn.) The food is always excellent and the staff are the friendliest and most knowledgeable around. Ask them about any dish and they will tell exactly, about it. The décor has regular changes some of them only subtle but always effective and in good taste.

The food was lovely and the staff were very welcoming and friendly. The only reason I didn't give 5/5 is because at some points during the night the service was a little slow with drinks being forgotten on a couple of occasions.

It is great to have a local restaurant that you can rely on. The Saffron offers beautiful food served in a relaxed, family atmosphere. The standard of service is second to none. The menu has sophisticated Indian food but is not trying to be too clever. Portions and the levels of hospitality are very generous.

Simply fantastic! Everything about this place is amazing. The owners give it a real family feel. Nothing is too much trouble and the rest of the staff are fantastic. The food is beautiful and the prices are extremely reasonable. I've been to many Indian restaurants in my time but it would take a lot to beat this place.

We've visited the Saffron on numerous occasions and find this comfortably the best curry house in town. The service from the lads is phenomenal and the food is fantastic. I have seen some reviews on here not giving it justice and although they are entitled to their own opinions frankly they are completely wrong.
