Wonderful dinner, very good Indian food

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... read 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.

Of course there's always a reason for a restaurant to be busy. Its a good place to eat and this one did not disappoint. No Indian food anywhere close to Murphy,NC so we always search it out when we are out of town. I always get goat (cabrito) when available and their's was great. Mary had a small lamb dish(get...

I went here a few days ago with my friends. I didn't think I liked Indian food but this place was fantastic. I tried just about everything in the buffet and couldn't find a single thing I didn't really enjoy. In fact I ate so much during lunch that I skipped dinner. I highly recommend trying this place you won't... More

My wife and I travel a lot and always enjoy finding a great place to eat. We are lucky because Saffron is only several minutes away. The food quality is always great and if you drink water, your glass will never go empty. The people and service is also very good.

This restaurant has fabulous dishes and the service is wonderful. Definitely my favorite restaurant in town for Indian cuisine. They always treat my family and me wonderfully and provide attentive, but not overdone, service. I highly recommend this restaurant.
