Came to try here after friends recommendation, `yes its a nice ambience, friendly staff and really nice food. As a confirmed curry head I tried some of the Nepalese dishes they offer, starter was a mixed kebab splendid and unusual followed by a Lamb chop dish marinated in wine and cooked in a special source, no curry in it at all but lovely spicy hot sauce, really enjoyed them, my friend had lemon chicken which he enjoyed. The Peshwari nan was absolutely excellent, the nicest I have had in many a year. Try the unusual Indian dessert, like a hot jelly in a rosewater syrup. really yummy ! All in all a very enjoyable feast. Definitely going on the Yes List !
5* Food and service, advised to try the buttered chicken as an alternative to korma. Far better than a boring korma great staff, lovely food.
Had a great meal recently, the service and food is excellent, and as other reviews have said it is quite different from most of the Indian restaurants around. The starters are really substantial and the naan bread to die for. All in all a very good night the food and service very good, will be going back again soon
The Saffron stands apart from other Indian restaurants in Crosby. The food is fabulous (not just the usual stock dishes) and very well presented, with a modern feel. We have been a couple of times with children and they have made special meals with a milder flavour (a welcome change from chicken nuggets). Everything we have tried off the menu has been delicious and exceeds your expectations. Highly recommended.
As fine as any Indian restaurant on Merseyside, and that's saying quite a lot. Delectable shashlik, reshmi kebab and lamb chops - oh, and a delicious chicken chat, but all the starters that we've had are recommended. Among the mains we've been particularly delighted by the lamb tawa and the mangolian fish curry. We travel from across the river, and it's emphatically worth the journey.
Went here for the second time last night. It is excellent. Incidentally, northern Indian and Nepalese food is less vegetarian than the rest of India, and tofu is an abomination.
This is a place that you must visit, just had the Sunday buffet at an unbelievable 5.99 for all you can eat. Beautiful Indian food with a modern light touch, all of the highest quality, hot freshly made naan bread, a range of great vegetarian dishes along with the tasty chicken and lamb dishes and good choice of salads.
i try to avoid Indian restaurants as a rule, they are normally dreadful, and having eaten here some years ago when it was under a different name (Coriander) and different ownership i thought it fell into that catagory. But i can assure you the food i have just had was some of the best Indian food i have eaten. The service was great and decor modern and clean.
What i find hard to believe is that it isn't doing good business, tucked away in st johns rd; not an ideal site for restaurant, but the food was still fantastic. One cautionary note as with most Indian restaurants if you order a sweet that isn’t Indian expect it to be nothing special. i had the rasmalai (first time) something in between barfi and paneer not too sweet and bathed in nut milk, a bit like sweet milk curds and totally beautiful. You must try this place, just a great modern Indian restaurant.
