Authentic, hot.

There were indians at 2 tables, usually a sign of authenticity. I The decor or surroundings are less attractive than other restaurants in the area but do not get concerned

This place is really popular. My sister and I came here for the lunch buffet on a Saturday and there was a line waiting for the place to open. Within 20 minutes of opening, they were on a wait. The lunch buffet has lots of choices, and I tried to sample as many dishes as possible, but none of them... More

Let me start by saying this is my first experience with Indian food. That said, it was excellent and I now know what I was missing. We ordered a number of things and passed them around. Everything was exceptional. Indian food is now on my rotation. The only thing lacking was the ambiance. The interior was clean, but there was... More

We came because the restaurant was rated #2 in Greenville, but were disappointed. The dining room looks contemporary - clean and simple with nice white table cloths and not so loud that we had to shout across the table. DW's Coconut Shrimp curry needed more coconut and although ordered as "mild" would be better described as "bland." My Chicken Tikka... More

I finally twisted my husband's arm hard enough for him to try Indian food. We ordered the dinner for two to try a few dishes. It was delicious! I even had leftovers for lunch the next day. It has been 3 days since we ate there and he's still talking about it. We will be eating here again on out... More

The lunch buffet is a tremendous value at $8.50. Everything was good. In addition to having the standard two Indian-lunch-buffet chicken dishes, there was a beef dish as well. And two kind of rice: basmati & "corn" rice. But it was the vegetable korma that was truly exceptional: one of the best I have ever eaten (and I've had many,... More

We live near Saffron, but don't go very often and I don't know why we don't. The restaurant location to is easy to find right off of Woodruff Rd. Reservations are worthwhile because it is such a popular place (864-288-7400). You walk into a clean bright foyer and see the white table clothes and you know right away this is... More

I have always dined for lunch which gives one the opportunity to try a variety of entrees from their buffet. The food has been consistent, the service staff is very friendly and attentive to your needs. As a vegetarian, there is a good offering of four different vegetables. They also offer a salad bar with mixed greens, raita, pickles and... More

We've been going to Saffron for a couple of years, mostly for lunch. At lunch Saffron does a full Indian buffet with more options and food than you honestly should be eating in a single sitting -- which is why it's so popular. The food is good, they are in a busy location, and so the lunch buffet turnover is... More

I was surprised that the restaurant was located in a strip mall but the food did not disappoint. A little pricy for Indian food but the taste of our curry and the masala were worth the extra cost. The Indian waiter seemed disinterested in helping us. That is why only 4 stars.
