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... read more

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.

There are those like myself who make a regular point of having lunch at Saffrons when in the Woodrow Road area. For less than 10 bucks you have a choice of eight entrees, mostly curries, along with salads and a delicious dessert. Get there as close to 11.30 as you can as the place rapidly gets crowded. The food is... More

This is a weekly must go for the lunch buffet. Do not think canned salty food. This is high quality fresh food with a great variety of Indian and the occasional Asian dish. Always a vegetarian option available. They have a full menu you can also choose from. White linen table cloths and a very attentive staff.

Ive dined here many times and always satisfied with food and service. Dishes are flavorful and fresh. I love the tandoori mixed plate, and the lentil soup. If I could eat more, I would try everything on the menu ! Highly recommend.
