Fabulous! Chose this based on Open Table reviews. Street view made me cautious but once inside and speaking with owners, we fell in love with the place. Elegant small atmosphere and world class service was our impression. When the food and wine arrived, we were just speechless. We have had a lot of Indian cuisine around the world and Saffron is absolutely the best (Mike drop).

Really tasty, original dishes served by pleasant team of staff.

This is now a regular of ours and the excellent reviews are well deserved.

It's not plush inside but it's popular because they put substance over style.

Nicely presented. Nans v good. Flavours of my curry a little lost with too much salt - admit this is personal taste. I'd prob still go back tho & try another

I booked Saffron because it was #1 on TripAdvisor but when we pulled up outside I was a bit worried we'd made a mistake as it looked like a takeaway. Very pleasantly surprised when we went inside though.

Lovely, comfortable seating, nicely spaced tables so we could chat without being overheard/listening to other diners' conversations, simple, clean decor.

The best things about the place though was the delicious food - ample portion sizes, good variety, very flavoursome - and the wonderful staff. They were very gracious and attentive without being in your face. Their quiet, calm presence added to the relaxed atmosphere creating a lovely ambience.

I would highly recommend and will definitely be going back again soon.

From the outside this place looks like your average indian takeaway in Liverpool but as you step inside it's obvious it is much more than that. The food was amazing and the personalised service was fantastic.

Would definitely recommend, best restaurant I've been to for a while.

Only my two friends and I and a family of four in the whole restaurant so lacking atmosphere as so empty. The background music/sounds were on a loop and after a dozen listenings of what sounded like bamboo wind chimes became pretty unbearable! Apart from that the food was excellent and freshly prepared and well presented, the owner was very accommodating and they were happy to keep refilling the chutneys.

I visited this restaurant on my cousin's recommendation with my cousin and daughter. The food was very good and the staff very friendly and accommodating. I like hot curries myself and was pleased to see a scotch bonnet dish so ordered a vegetable version made phall hot. Very nice it was too. I must go back there again.
