Tea.

30.8.11

The Saturday before last Jonathan and I went out for some tea in the centre of Sheffield, and as we couldn't get a booking anywhere that did Spanish food/tapas/paella (the food we fancied) we settled on some Indian grub and headed to the Saffron Club in Sheffield. It has rave reviews on Trip Advisor which is always a good sign!

I wore a blue shift dress from River Island with a cream lace trim, black leggings, and these pumps from Sarenza.


The service was brilliant - when we asked the waiter what he would recommend he didn't just point out the most expensive thing on the menu. He asked us what we fancied, and what we usually have, and whether we wanted to stick to the same kind of thing or try something new.

We got a starter to share which included 2 samosas, 2 onion bhajis, 2 bits of salmon and 2 pieces of chicken tikka which were all yummy. The salmon and onion bhajis were particularly tasty.


I can't remember the name of my main but it was yummy! It was a chicken dish with a yoghurt based sauce, and it had a really unique taste to it. It wasn't too spicy either, as I'm not keen on anything that sets my mouth on fire. Jonathan had one of the specials, lamb shank, and he was very impressed. We shared some garlic naan and some rice, and it left us feeling stuffed but ever so satisfied!

Definitely worth a visit if you live nearby and are partial to Indian food.

  13. Gosh, this looks good! I never venture in to that part of Sheffield but i'll have to add this to my list of places to buy!
    If you're into Indian food then you must try the Mogul Room on Sharrowvale Road in Sheffield, it truly is the best round here! x

  17. Looks delish! Will have to check it out! (It's making me feel hungry!)

    I really rate Kashmiri Aroma up on Woodseats for Indian food and the service is top notch too - they are very attentive but not annoyingly so! :)
