    Great place and really friendly waiters. Food was incredibly tasty with massive portions. Waiters kept us entertained throughout the evening and were obviously enjoying their jobs. Great ambience - really nicely decorated with lots of water bubble walls. Everyone was happy with the meal and the place was buzzing but noise was at a level where you could still talk without having to shout.

    Very welcoming staff. Fantastic food was served. Only negatives were that there was a step up to the toilet from the main restaurant floor, which needs to be more clearly marked as during our meal two people tripped up on it. Also, we weren’t aware of a time limit to the booking, but at the very end of the meal, plates were collected from one diner before the second diner had finished; the body language was that they needed the table for another party.

    Nice to go into a busy restaurant in these strange times. That alone tells you something. Main course was superb for all of us. Felt starters and rice were just a little pricey. Would just go for a main course next time.

    When I first called to make a booking, the person on the phone was rather gruff. However the food was very good and the waiter who served us was excellent. I would say that the fish signature dish was not as tasty as the rest of the dishes. Conclusion: a very good Indian restaurant with some innovative dishes not found in many others.

    This was our first visit to Saffron but it certainly won’t be our last. Everything was excellent - the warm welcome, the striking decor, the friendly and efficient service and the excellent food. A little more expensive than many other Indian restaurants but well worth every penny.

    Arrogant staff, food was fresh, but not cooked properly. Very dry. I’d class it as a Bangladeshi restaurant for people with European pallets. Not authentic Indian at all.

    Food was deliscious! However, I felt we were being rushed. As soon as we had finished one course the other came out straight away. Would have been nice to have more time to relax

    We were not happy with the starter bean taken away before we had finished as main course was ready not realising the prices have been increase for the August deal £8 for a starter bit over the top so did not benefit from the discount

    We are completely overwhelmed with everything about this place. The welcome, the mannerisms of the all the staff, ambience, decor, the pristinely immaculate toilets & of course the food - Was simply phenomenal. Don't just take our word for it. Please visit this restaurant and I can assure you, you will say the same. Spicy food is does not have to be astronomically hot. Their food, the quality of the meat, fish and the Bengal aubergine was the best. Seamless service. An excellent evening it was indeed and my parter and I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Ruby Murray and Volcano with king prawn is mouthwatering. Highly recommended. Best in Northamptonshire. Pls try !!!

    Amazing food every single time, so fresh! So consistent whether you eat in or takeaway. The service inside the restaurant was the best I've ever experienced, very attentive and friendly staff making a very welcoming atmosphere. The whole restaurant is presented well and immaculately clean. I am already looking forward to my next visit. Hands down, best Indian Restaurant around!

    One person kept serving whole restaurant and the other two kept themselves busy at the reception literally with least jobs. We waited 55 minutes for the dessert menu. The food menu was only combined of five items, if I had not paid deposit I would have walked out. The overall experience was terrible and terrible
