Our favorite restaurant in Greenville, we go often for the lunch buffet which is priced very reasonably. The selections change every day and are cooked by Indian chefs. The owner and his wife are gracious hosts. Try the sweet spice iced tea.

So good that went back couple of weeks later for more, first visit was for dinner and enjoyed everything we order. Our second... More

Saffron has a great dining atmosphere. You can come dressed up or down and feel comfortable. All of the staff are friendly and very attentive. There's a wide selection on the menu and everything I've tasted so far is great. My boyfriend is from India and it's hard for him to find places in America that are akin to what... More

Plenty of vegetarian options and a good variety of other dishes. The selection varies daily and I have never been disappointed in any of the... More

We had drinks and ordered the palak kulcha which is a naan bread stuffed with spinach very good. We also ordered the lamb saag which is delicious lamb cooked with spinach, ginger,... More

We came here towards the end of lunch and were pleased to find the buffet line was full despite the hour. The staff were consistently checking on the tables and food line to clean up and replenish. The food. Wow. The food is flavourful and a special treat offering a variety of tastes not often found at other Indian restaurants... More

Try other Indian restaurants in Greenville for authentic flavor and fair prices. This one has neither.
