Took my wife who is not terribly adventurous in trying new foods from cultures that she hasn't tried before. She agreed the food was great! This is one of those places, If you're not sure you've had Indian food, then you probably won't recognize anything they bring you, but everything tastes awesome. Be sure, like a lot of Asian foods,... More

My family and I frequent Saffron and are never disappointed. We are Indian, so we know exactly what flavors we are looking for in a dish. We love it, and the staff are always very friendly.

Found meal worms in my rice from a take-out order. Sadly, I found them after I had already eaten half of the portion I was given. If you see any reddish/brown tints to your "rice," you might want to take a look. It might not be rice.

Visiting the South and in the mood for a healthy tasty meal. Hmmm, is that possible? After reading reviews, I thought I'd give this place a try, hoping it wasn't just a lot of curries with chicken. I first went to the salad bar and found a REALLY tasty Caesar Chicken salad. I noticed that it seemed to be overlooked... More

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!

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.
