Saffron Spice is seamless sophistication. Where you'll find contemporary eats, a lively atmosphere and that unmistakable Indian charm, it's perfect for a laid-back munch at sundown.

Comprised of long tables, pristine decor and a revitalising, beachy theme, this restaurant is a cooling antidote to the sometimes-fiery dishes on offer. Always abuzz with laughter, chatter and a reunion or three, soak in the atmosphere, get yourself a refreshing glass of fizz and settle down for a feast worth remembering.

Their ambitious menu aims to encapsulate the immense diversity of Indian cuisine, and they do it with aplomb! In the curry corner are all the main culprits like Bombay chicken, butter chicken, lamb madras, prawn vindaloo and plenty of daals, paneer-based curries and vegetables for our vegetarian friends. Just about every mouth-watering Indian dish you can think of is here.

And it's not just limited to curry. Noodle dishes, jalfrezis, biriyanis, fried rice and saags keep things interesting and full of flavour. Also, let's not forget South India! Wrapped up and ready to eat are the dosas. These delicious Indian crepes are filled with anything from lamb to chicken, prawn, onion and paneer. Make sure to have a pot of mint or mango chutney on the side for those 'hotter' moments and finish up with a creamy mango kulfi. For all things nice, think of Saffron Spice!
