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.

Enjoyed our evening here. There was a nice buzz about the place (a busy Saturday night). Decent food including an interesting range of Nepalese dishes. And friendly attentive service. I’ve had some disappointing experiences with curry restaurants. This is one though I’ll return to -...and recommend!More

Great food as ever and very very reasonably priced. Very attentive and friendly staff who will accommodate changes/ additions to dishes on request. I’m not vegetarian but choose mainly vegetarian options when I visit as they are fantastic. One worth trying is the bhindi bhaji...( okra) from the veggie sides. Mains, channa masala with added spinach along with tarka dahl with a few tandoori roti, nutritious, tasty and filling. Great! I’ve been coming here for many years and never been disappointed with either the food or service. Thank you Ryan and your team, keep up the great work.More

Tried the restaurant as we had seen so many positives. What a dissapointment! Service was great. My hubby's curry was more of a chinese meal than an indian. My chicken tikka masala was like a ready meal from a supermarket! Awful. Didn't want to cause...a scene so paid and left. Never will we go back! 🤢More

As always absolutely amazing food & fantastic value! We’re regulars at Saffron and to be totally 100% honest we’d never go to any other Indian/Nepalese restaurant. The staff are so friendly & the manager/owner is always approachable, easy to talk to & will guide you...on what he suggested based on what you like. All the starters are so tasty but if you want a treat try the lamb chops…..you won’t regret it trust me!!! For mains if you want a challenge I recommend trying the Sahara Chicken!!! Whatever you choose though you will never be disappointed, honestly this is the best kept secret for this style of food!!!!More

First time visitor with a few mates as we just fancied a curry. While there are many familiar items on the menu Saffron's menu has many items I've not seen before. We went in early and it was reasonably busy but by the time we...left there were only two tables still occupied. That is a shame because the food here is absolutely terrific. The service was prompt and the food was piping hot. Ive been to many 'curry houses' where as much as you love them its really only the spices that are hot. Not here, everything tasted fresh. We started with poppadoms because its against the law to go to a curry house and not have them. They were crisp and delicious and we wolfed them down so fast we ordered more. Starters I had the veggie Samosa that were crispy on the outside, lovely and moist on the inside, and nicely spiced. Served with a dipping sauce that wasn't named on the menu but was delicious. 2 of my fellow diners went for Himalayan lamb chops as a starter that was so generously proportioned many people could eat it as a main course. two clean plates testified to how good they were, but the portion size was to come back to haunt them. Our other friend went for the Nepalese dumplings that was also a generous portion. Mains were Chicken Hariyali, which didn't look particularly appetizing I will admit. It was covered in a coriander and green chilli green sauce. However, my fellow diner made short work of it. One went for the Chicken Bhuna that he couldn't finish, and another went for went for Chicken hot garlic Resunga that he described as 'fiery, and also couldnt finish. For both their main on top of the Lamb Chop starter had been a hill too high to climb. However, the staff were only too happy to pack up the leftovers to take home. I had another Nepalese dish called Chicken Manchurian that I can describe as utterly sensational. So good, I'm lost for superlatives. Deep fried battered chicken with garlic, ginger, peppers, spring onion and coriander. At first taste it is similar to a Chinese sweet and sour, however, give it a minute and the chilli and pepper heat comes running along to smack you in the face leaving a lovely tangy aftertaste. Highly recommended. 6.5 beers and a coke and came to £30 a head including tip. Superb value for money. On the way out one of the two remaining occupied tables had an Indian family enjoying a meal. That is a recommendation in itself. Give it a try the staff deserve it and you wont be disappointed.More

We have been visiting the Saffron as a family for years from weekly visits to special occasions. Over the years it has always been lovely food, lovely staff and a great atmosphere. We visited again this evening and everything was just perfect. The staff are...so welcoming and always on hand to suggest new meals you may not have tried or a recommendation or pairing you may not have considered before. The food quality and flavours are just perfect and would highly recommend for anyone to try. Thank you Ryan and team as always, delicious.More

a meal at Saffron has quickly turned into one of the things we look forward to most! The food is just so good. We’ve tried many of the Indian and Asian restaurants in north Liverpool, and none come close to Saffron. Beautiful, delicious food that...you can tell has had so much love put into it. The 10% discount on takeaway means we enjoy it at home a little more often than we should, too! Try the Makhani Daal as a side with your curry, and perhaps one of their amazing naans too.More

Probably a 20 minute taxi ride and you wouldn't need to book at that time.
