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.

We had an amazing curry, being brummie we like to pride ourselves on good Indian food. We had a balti, saffron lamb, prawn curry, poppadoms sauces etc. The food was hot tasty fresh and delicious well worth a visit the garlic nann was so fresh...too better than back home. After talking to the waiter we found out the chef was a brummie .Don't hesitate to go you won't be disappointedMore

Returned after a long break (pre COVID) and was really pleasantly surprised. 7 of us all ordering different dishes and not a bad word about any. Lovely curries and great service. Only negative was the price of a pint of diet coke £4.50. But will...be back. Thanks for a fab evening Saffron.More

Visited Saffron on the last night of my holiday, as it had been a while since I had had a sit-down Indian meal. While it was quiet there with only one other couple arriving during my visit it must be remembered that I went mid-week...and did go early in the night - their phone was very busy though The good reports posted on Tripadvisor were true to their word I enjoyed the best and tastiest Chicken Passanda I have had for a long time. The meal was served in good time and the sauce didn't have that oily film that sadly appears in so many takeaways. The service was very professional with the staff being friendly and allowing me to enjoy my meal and not be overly attentive.More

Dined on a Friday evening. Tried to ring for a takeaway but was cut off twice. So walked to the restaurant to sit in, Very busy with take out, sit in service was extremely slow with only 3 table occupied. Waited 30 minutes before we...got a drink. Food arrived after an hour. Staffing issues me thinks. Having said that, when the food arrived it was beautiful . Tasty, good sized portions and hot. Good value. Hopefully when we come back the staffing shortage will be resolved.More

We had a lovely tasty meal and appreciated the very friendly staff. The restaurant was fairly quiet as it was mid-week but we thoroughly enjoyed it.

Dissapointing. Think should stick to takeaway. Messy tables stayed throughout my visit. Remains of chutney tray and curry :/ Flies buzzing around tables. Waiter didnt smile and came across as unapprachable. Soft drink was flat. Curry sauce and rice was okay but meat was tough....Lots of loud chatter, laughter and machine noise coking from kitchen. NOT a restaurant vibe.. do not recommend to sit it.More

Great as a take away but not really a restaurant. Tables not laid out cutlery came wrapped in a napkin, no condiments at all. They wanted us to use the same knife and fork for the starter and main! T-shirt and jeans was the attire...to take orders and serve.More

I don’t get down to the St David’s area very often, and it’s been a while since I last had a takeaway, so I decided to order one from the Saffron restaurant, and I’m so glad I did. I ordered the Sheek kebab, followed by...the Special Biryani. Both were cooked superbly and were incredibly tasty. They didn’t scrimp on the portions either! The staff also deserve a mention as they were very friendly and customer focussed; something which can be sadly lacking some times.More

We got a takeaway from here as it is the only indian restaurant anywhere near our location. It was an okay Indian but we wouldn’t get from there again. We ordered a chicken tikka dhansak which was pretty good, and a vegetable jalfrezi which wasn’t...great. It was really pasty in flavour and not saucy at all. We ordered mushroom pakora but a tub of curries mushroom type stuff arrived, not pakoras at all. Our cheese naan was definitely missing cheese, or they use the tiniest bit ever and it’s not visible. The rice portion is really small, and we was sharing so not great. Poppodoms and dips were great.More

Got there at 5.30 opening. Told all tables reserved. Website says no reservations, walk in only. All a bit confusing. Had to persuade a curry shop owner to let me in for an hour. That's a first! Had two good curries and all was calm...and good.More

Tasty, delicious curry. Highly recommend. It’s great they don’t take bookings so you can drop in. Food didn’t take ages after ordering.

Good food served with a smile. Lovely place . Thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The free poppadoms were a nice touch and the best we've ever eaten! Would definitely go back next time we visit St. Davids

By chance my wife and I walked past Saffron and decided to give it a go. The staff encouraged us to try the set Tali menu however they also gave us the take away menus if we wanted other options. We shared the meat option...and it was more than enough for both of us. My wife is gluten intolerant and doesn’t do spicy and the staff and chefs were very accomodating. She almost licked the bowls clean. We couldn’t even decide on a favourite dish, all 5 options were just as good if not better than the last.More

Only if its milk, sunshine. The Jalfrezi is so hot even a Welsh Dragon would struggle.
