Great especially Sunday buffet

We ate one time in the evening from the menu. I felt the fare was a little too pricey. However the Sunday buffet was reasonably priced and the food was good. The seating space for the buffet crowd is way too small and can result in a 30 minute wait. However it is worth the wait.

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

It's a nice place to have a bite of India. Food was good, but service and the overall ambience could be much better, it is as if they believe that since food is good they can neglect the seating and decor. Can do better, but maybe it attracts enough number of folks for its quality of food.

We had the Samosas, and chicken marsala, and ice cream for dessert. All were quite good, as was the bread. I'd like to go back to get the Feast, which the couple at an adjoining table had, and I was envious.

We really enjoyed the food I have never been to a Indian restaurant so this was a first. I have to admit I LOVE the food it was excellent! But the service was lacking....horribly. They weren't friendly at all they were bordering on rude. I would consider going back but it wouldn't be a first choice.

The food here is amazing - we were in town for the weekend and noted that Saffron was the fourth highest rated restaurant in Greenville - we love Indian food, so decided to go. We realized just before we arrived that we had eaten here before, and as was the case with the previous visit, the food was amazing. I... More

There were indians at 2 tables, usually a sign of authenticity. I The decor or surroundings are less attractive than other restaurants in the area but do not get concerned

This place is really popular. My sister and I came here for the lunch buffet on a Saturday and there was a line waiting for the place to open. Within 20 minutes of opening, they were on a wait. The lunch buffet has lots of choices, and I tried to sample as many dishes as possible, but none of them... More

Let me start by saying this is my first experience with Indian food. That said, it was excellent and I now know what I was missing. We ordered a number of things and passed them around. Everything was exceptional. Indian food is now on my rotation. The only thing lacking was the ambiance. The interior was clean, but there was... More

We came because the restaurant was rated #2 in Greenville, but were disappointed. The dining room looks contemporary - clean and simple with nice white table cloths and not so loud that we had to shout across the table. DW's Coconut Shrimp curry needed more coconut and although ordered as "mild" would be better described as "bland." My Chicken Tikka... More
