Superb flavors and tastes in the lunch buffete! Highly recommended for all those lovers of Indian cousine, in particular on a vegan diet. Mango smoothie great, tandori, and one of my faves- tamarind dressing! Aggghh, will miss this place...

We've ordered nearly everything on the menu over the years and it's always been wonderful. We each ordered the Signature Meal last time which came with a soup choice. I've never had soup there before, but the chicken soup was outstanding! The Tikka Masala has always been my favorite dish, but honestly you can't go wrong with anything. The service... More

Vegetarian, chicken eater, even beef is available during the lunch buffet. Always an interesting and not the same every day though Tandoori cHickenlooper is usually there. Even ordering off the menu is wonderful. If you enjoy India cuisine, this is THE place to go in Greenville!

Highly rated on TripAdvisor, and well deserved. We had a terrific dinner here- food, service and ambiance were well done. Excellent menu, and everything well prepared.

This place has good quality Indian food. Their naan is delicious. I tried their lamb saag and it didn't disappoint. The lamb was very tender. The reason I couldn't give the restaurant 5 stars is the service was lacking that night, but the food made up for it. I will be returning.

I have eaten at other Indian restaurants including up-scale ones in Charlotte, NC and this is just as good at a much better prove point. This is a great restaurant and certainly one to try if you are new to Indian food. The menu is descriptively written so you understand what you are ordering and the wait staff is certainly... More

Rarely is my wife happy with a buffet of any type. My career over the last couple of years has afforded me the ability to eat at several Indian cuisine restaurants as many of my co-workers are here from India. I can say without a doubt this is the best Indian cuisine lunch buffet I have had. As a bonus,... More

On October 16, 2014 my wife and I lunched at Saffron Indian Cuisine in Greenville, SC. This was our third visit in three years and we were not disappointed this year. We arrived shortly after the restaurant opened at 11:30 a.m. and it was nearly full. As usual, the dining area was spotlessly clean, and each table was immaculately set... More

We have been trying different restaurants in Greenville. A friend of mine ( who is from India) recommended the restaurant. My children had never experienced Indian Cuisine. Well the food was delicious with multiple choices. You have various degrees of "heat" that they will prepare your food. There are also sampler dinners as well. Well everyone loved the food. The...
