India is a vast country with a great variation in climate and terrain. Each of its many regions boasts its own special style and flavour of cooking, just as each has its own quite different language and customs. For example, in Kashmir, which lies to the north, the spice Saffron is used for colouring many Indian dishes as well as adding a mild flavour. In Uttar Predesh. which includes the foothills of the Himalayas, it will be simple, with a subtle delicate taste. In the Delhi Mogul style, rich and creamy. In the South of India, in Tamil Nadu, the same dish will become spicy and aromatic, for this is the major spice growing area. However, the appreciation of the subtle spices and seasoning which makes Indian food distinctive.

I had read in the paper and heard on the radio that Saffron had achieved a 4-star rating and that they had also launched a new menu so I decided to try it for myself. I loved the ambience of the place and decided that I would try a Chicken Chettinad, it tasted fresh and the spices were just right. The staff were really friendly and willing to please and the bill was average price like you would find anywhere else. The decor was clean and contemporary with a wonderful modern feel; even the toilets were high quality! But most important the food was really superb, more like a Michelin Restaurant. I will definitely be going back. RDE
I was suggested this restaurant by a close friend and visited them with my family a few days ago. We really enjoy Indian food and this restaurant was classic, they had this amazing food with the full flavours and aromas of traditional Indian spices unlike some other restaurants claiming to serve authentic Indian food and failing to do so. The decor being warm and nice, took me back to the memories from my trip India and obviously, the food added the cherry on the top, the service was quick and excellent too. I am sure we will be coming back very soon to try some more of your mouth watering dishes. All in all its amazing food with very affordable prices. A must for all Indian food lovers. It was such a delight to be here. DH
