Portions are large, so much so that we would recommend groups or couples ordering one rice and one nan bread as your choice of accompaniment because they are large enough to share.
Chocolate mints and some delightful Indian sweets which look like hundreds and thousands are served with the bill. These have a refreshing cinnamon mint taste.
Service is very gentlemanly: doors are opened upon entry and exit, a warm welcoming smile is always given. Chairs are pulled out and tables are well set out with shiny silver cutlery and linen napkins and table clothes. Don't be fooled by the cheap prices - this is a well decorated and maintained restaurant with first class service and food freshly made by some great chefs.
Window seats give a good outlook onto Union Street where the hustle and bustle of the shoppers and traffic gives a sharp contrast to the relaxed interior of the Saffron restaurant.
The business lunch is served from noon until 4pm. Thereafter the extensive main menu is available - still at very reasonable prices.
Takeaway orders are available and there is free delivery within a 6 mile radius of the restaurant. The restaurant closes at 11:30pm.
There is a flight of stairs to climb before getting to the restaurant, and a further flight of stairs takes you to the toilets. Unfortunately there are no disabled facilities and no disabled access.
