Stayed in Middleham a short taxi ride away but worth the trip. Large selection of dishes. Food was good and well presented. Pleasant staff and atmosphere.

Here on holiday from Scotland. Tried Saffron for a takeaway. An excellent meal. We had several different dishes and all were perfect. One of the better Indian restaurants we have tried. Definately in our top five. Proper use of spices and not just laden with too hot curry powders. As it should be. An easy five star rating.

We have been in Yorkshire for a week away and found Saffron when driving through Leyburn. What a lovely place to eat. Food was delicious and the service was great. Attentive but not over the top. Top marks to your chef. We will be back again when we come back to Yorkshire and will recommend Saffron to everyone.

Heard a few good reports about this place , and they were right. Really nice food, the place itself is comfortable and pleasant ,and the staff are tentative but not overbearing. I thought they had a great menu, plenty of choice. Would definitely go back .

Room was a little chilly early on a January evening, but the food was lovely and warmed us up well. Best place in the Dales for vegetarian food

Extensive and interesting menu with dishes from various parts of the sub continent. The restaurant was busy and service was good and friendly. Value for money and worth a visit.

If you're one of those people who nearly always has the same thing when you go out for an indian meal, then this is the place to get adventurous. The waiters and the owner Chris always help you with making different choices if you ask and almost any curry can be made hotter or milder according to your taste, I... More

Ordered two different chicken dishes from the takeout menu which both tasted the same and neither were spectacular. The food was under seasoned and lacking in flavour in spite of the menus promises. It has to be said that the staff were exceptional and welcoming but would not hurry back.
