Reviewed 25 May 2014

We have ordered from Saffron so many times that we're on first name terms with mob of the staff! (Not sure if I should be proud of that fact or not, but the food is so tasty, healthier than any other Indian we've ever had - no oil etc and tastes fresher than others.
Very friendly staff...great service.

“fantastic”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

Just back from saffron in waterloo. What can i say....hubby and i have just had the most wonderful meal, passionate authentic and beautifully balanced combination of flavours. Waiter service was both attentive yet not invasive. One of the friendly partners who own this restaurant, after enquiring how we found our food, made us feel welcome and appreciated. Nothing was too much bother. All round lovely experience, definately reccomended.

“Just superb. Utterly superb.”
Reviewed 13 April 2014

My girlfriend and I went last night, on a whim, after a day of house renovations, we couldn't be bothered cooking. We had booked but it looked like the old indian chap at the front of house (probably the owner) didn't have a clue that we booked but he was lovely anyway and waved us in all happy and smiling. Anyhoos, the food was just stunning. I won't go through every dish and ingredient, but from the poppadoms through to starters, mains, sides, everything was beautifully cooked, super fresh ingredients, stunning use of spices, skilfully cooked and presented, in a really nice room, elegant and comtemporary, not your usual Indian restaurant. Just go, and enjoy it. And it was really well priced to top it all off. Brilliant. Never had a better Indian meal.

“Consistently good..”
Reviewed 22 March 2014 via mobile

Tried Indian restaurants all over the north west of england, come across some good and some bad ones, the Saffron in Crosby is right up there in terms of consistently excellent quality food, the chk Shashlic is simply superb.
Staff are pleasant and efficient without being intrusive. Prices are very reasonable for the quality of the food, always feel good when I come out!
Just one tiny tiny niggle - don't always get an after eight mint after the excellent food!
Would recommend it to anyone who likes this type of cuisine...

“Simply the best Asian food on Merseyside.”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

I have been to this gem of a restaurant on several occasions. It was fantastic to start with and it just keeps getting better. The food served here is without equal, the spices are so delicate on the palate and make the mouth water in a way that I have not experienced at any other restaurant. They only use the best quality ingredients and it is always cooked to perfection. The chef is a real superstar.
The Saffron has really raised the bar and I cant help judging all other restaurants in the area by the standards they set.
The flavours are a mix of Northern India and Nepalese. I think it is this mix and the high standards that I have already mentioned that make the Saffron so special.
The food is best around. The atmosphere is a little flat, this place is all about food as opposed to partying. Some changes to create a are more intimate atmosphere within the restaurant would be welcomed. However, the staff are so friendly, polite and attentive. The place is also immaculate throughout.
If you have not yet been to the Saffron you are really missing out. Beware though, your first visit will definitely not be your last, the Saffron is addictive!
