About The Saffron Club

Quality is not an accident declares the menu at Tranquil Vale’s The Saffron Club. The food here is a blend of Nepalese and Indian, and draws on influences from across the region for a truly pan-Asian fusion menu, free from artificial colours and flavours for dishes that pack the aromatic flavours of the east subtly in this London favourite. Blackheath locals are heading there in droves and it's easy to see why with the aromatic flavours and affordable prices that set this curry house apart.

Further Information

The team at this Blackheath classic, just south of Greenwich’s Observatory on Tranquil Vale, has made a name for itself with fusion dishes like goan prawns with coconut, generous barbecue platters to share and stir fried vegetables with fresh sea bass. The London dining scene is a crowded place, but by blending unique flavours and cuisines together, The Saffron Club has carved itself a niche as the place in the capital to get Nepalese and Indian food.

Drawing the majority of their influences from Nepal, a region famous for its diverse demographics and complicated history, is at the centre of the food at The Saffron Club, in London’s Blackheath. Nepal can be roughly divided into four regions: Pahadi, a mountainous region by the Himalayan mountain range, Newari, Tibetan and Terai (mostly Indian), with unique culinary ideas which have influenced the overall shape of Nepalese food. This is what makes The Saffron Club distinct, from their Tranquil Vale site, the team are doing interesting things with curry that are difficult to find anywhere else in the capital.

This is some of the tastiest Indian/Nepalese food I've had in London and the service was very good. I'd definitely recommend The Saffron Club to anyone in south-east London.

There is not much more to say. We are always made welcome, always well fed with quality food and it is always a very pleasant experience

My favourite Indian restaurant by far, excellent food, absolutely delicious, service was efficient, always a satisfying experience, would go nowhere else for Indian food, portion size was generous.

Fabulous food as always, well worth the drive! Service was efficient, I requested for a fish curry that was not featured on the menu and the restaurant gladly obliged. The best Indian restaurant in the area, no doubt.

The food was generally okay, reasonable portions and reasonably priced. However, the service was well below bar. Waiters were constantly congregated around the bar area talking (not paying attention to customers),service was slow, and there was little (if none) where customer service is concerned. The service was very clinical, with no engagement with customers and felt purely like a business transaction (from start to finish). It's a shame as the service was not as me and mother remembered it to be a few years ago, and it somewhat ruined what was supposed to be a but of a special occasion - with my mother meeting my girlfriend from France for the first time. We could have chosen from any number of restaurants locally, and/or in the West End but ultimately chose The Saffron Club based on our previous experience (2-3 years ago). I will certainly not be returning to restaurant anytime soon, nor will I be recommending it to anyone.

Hey, the guys at the club spoiled us!!! They laid on a special chef's basket of naan for us after seeing all my pleas. Unbelievably to all I had different dish from my green chicken curry but equally good. Service, hospitality and food once again 100%. So appreciate the pre-emptive effort to meet my chef's basket continual whine - still when will it be back on the menu? As I now know you read this at the Club - also appreciate the cheese and peas. You are a great and so hospitable team. - Thanks

I'd seen lots of positive reviews about The Saffron Club and it did not disappoint. Amazing food and good, unobtrusive, service. The portion sizes are spot on and don't leave you feeling uncomfortably full. It is a busy little restaurant which I'd say is testament to how good it is.

Good attentive staff, very well spiced food and the best chicken tandoori dish I've tasted in a long time. The only reason I have not given top marks is: please clean sticky areas like bannister rail, door handles to toilets etc. It would take 10 minutes each day and would make a huge difference because the Ladies facility was spotless but sticky to the touch door handles lets it down.

My pleas have been answered. Our friends at Saffron have specially provided us with a chef's basket of naan. Maybe I should not publish this but I have nagged for to long that it is only right to acknowledge the extra effort these guys (and lady) make to make our visitsite such pleasure. Thanks lady & guys.

A superbly flavoured meal -each dish was perfect. Kept it simple; a prawn jalfrezi and chicken bhuna, with a creamy dhal and a perfect okra/bhindi sides. The dips etc with our popadums were simply delicious and a good vegetable platter to start. All rounded off by Cobra in support. Happily return to sample more treats. Thank you.
