Indian food uses it liberally, and at Saffron on Courtlands Drive in the Leavesden area of Watford – just a short hop from the Harry Potter studios – they know exactly what to do to make the most of it. The chefs have years of experience in Indian kitchens, and they bring them to bear on their ingredients, so book a table now for the taste of something special.
Nice, friendly restaurant. There were two tables with Indian families dining, which I always think is a good advert for an Indian restaurant. Good food and reasonably priced.

Saffron is one of the most expensive and treasured ingredients in the world, and in the Middle East and the subcontinent in particular. It is extracted from the flowers of the crocus flower, and used to flavour rice dishes, to give colour to stews and curries and to add a decadent edge to sweets. At Saffron in Watford, they know better than most how to use it, and you can taste it for yourself by heading down to Courtlands Drive in Leavesden, where the menu is packed with it.
The menu at Saffron utilises the spice in several dishes, particularly in the chef’s specials. Biryani is a particular favourite: rice, vegetables and meats are cooked in a saffron-infused broth, which imparts both colour and flavour onto it. Add to this the chef's expertise with other spices and you have a superb Indian meal down on Courtlands Drive in Watford, so head out to Leavesden – just remember to book a table in advance.
