SaffronLocated on Brick Lane, Saffron is popular with a late night East End crowd. Open until 1am most evenings, this restaurant is always busy with an eclectic clientele and is famous for its delicious Indian and Bangladeshi curries. Smart and minimal, the dining room is decorated with lime green and burnt orange walls and wooden floorboards, and the restaurant is a fun place for people watching with a side order of poppadoms. Popular with hipsters, students and tourists alike, Saffron has become a Brick Lane dining institution, and classic dishes include the Lamb Passanda Nawabi cooked in a creamy sauce made with pistachio nuts; the Chicken Shatkora with Bangladeshi lemon; and the Tandoori King Prawn Balti.
