After a complete revamping of the restaurant, Oldbury’s Saffron, in the Sandwell region and a short drive from Birmingham, is back and better than ever with a beautiful new interior and the same excellent modern Indian cuisine. Winner of awards such as the Best Out Of Town Restaurant by Taste of Birmingham, Saffron on Wolverhampton Road settles for nothing less than excellence with its fantastic selection of traditional Indian dishes, its luxurious environment and its amicable and knowledgeable staff.
The staff and management at Saffron, an Indian restaurant famous in the Sandwell region, is proud to invite you to see their newly finished refurbishment of the restaurant’s premises along Oldbury’s Wolverhampton Road. If you already loved Saffron before, you’ll love it even more after seeing the revamped new interior, complete with more spacious seating arrangements, a star-lit ceiling and beautiful mood lighting. Guests will find that the restaurant still retains the same great customer service as always, and the Indian cuisine is just as flavourful and impressive as ever before.
Not far from Birmingham, Oldbury’s Saffron brings in guests from all across Sandwell and the West Midlands. Enjoy some of the finest Indian specialties in the area, including classic traditional dishes such as tikka shashlik (lamb or chicken marinated in yoghurt and spices then grilled with onions, peppers and tomatoes) or the Malabar jhinga curry (king prawns cooked with tomatoes, garlic, lemon juice and coconut milk). Business has been booming since Saffron’s new refurbishment, so we highly recommend making a reservation before venturing out to this popular Indian establishment on Wolverhampton Road.
Another excellent meal at Saffron in Oldbury. Friendly service in a warm environment, all dishes were cooked perfectly and great value. We always make a point of visiting Saffron when staying in the area.
They seemed confused when we arrived and had no table for us in the main restaurant so asked if we wouldn't mind sitting in a side room, to which we agreed as it was then too late to get in anywhere else. The side room was cold and quite dingy an the service wasn't as good as it was in the main restaurant. Having said that, the food was delicious.
It was a nice small restaurant. Service was okay but could have been more efficient. Food was average but the medium was very mild. I hadn't seen my friend for ages so had wanted to catch up. We had our dessert and tea and then were chatting. The waiters continuously hovered around asking if we needed anything else. We said no and then after a third time the waiter said our table was reserved for a couple. Yet over half the restaurant was empty. I found this quite insulting. We would have left in our own time. Would I go back...I doubt it.
Nice surroundings and friendly staff. Starters were good and a reasonable portion size. Main courses offered a good choice and staff were happy to explain dishes when required. Unfortunately poppadum's were a little soft. However, chutney's, onion salad and sauces were excellent. Overall the meal was very nice.
This place is really good the food was great, service was great, really attentive and not too badly priced. Will definitely be going again soon.
