Excellent buffet, the place was packed even at 2:30pm on a Saturday. That was a good sign when we pulled up as the food was excellent, the service good, and the price reasonable.

I have been to two or three dozen lunch buffets at Indian restaurants all across the country and several others in the UK. The Saffron in Greenville would certainly rank in the top five in terms of food taste and quality. It might be a dollar or two higher than some other lunchtime buffets, but certainly worth it. The strip... More

I have eaten here several times but only at lunch - the lunch buffet is always excellent and varied. I didn't even know I liked Indian food. I have eaten here several times over the past 10 months while adhering to a vegan diet. The service is excellent; the restaurant is spotless. The smells are wonderful. Always a great experience!

On a trip to Greenville, we were staying nearby and decided to check out Saffron based on the good reviews. We were not disappointed. We had the Lamb Mango and Chicken Makhni with the garlic naan. Both were really tasty, came out hot and the food was quite affordable. I would definitely recommend this spot if you like Indian food... More

I've been to this restaurant countless numbers of times and have always had a good meal. I really enjoy the variety of vegetarian options served on the buffet and it seems they often offer a dish I've never had before. They are constantly replenishing the dishes so everything remains fresh. Very clean surroundings, pleasant staff, reasonable prices. I would prefer... More

We have been here for about 5-6 times. Most meals are good, they make good food and to your specifications. We are Indians and the food is made suitable to most palates. But recently we went for an afternoon buffet and we loved it. It is worth the price, $10 for a plate and $3 for kids. The kids loved... More

Very nice place, the food, service and is great and the place is very clean. Since we were there in December 2013, I don't remember what we ordered exactly but my wife and I are planning to go back next time we are in the area.

I've been to plenty of Indian restaurants in up and down the East Coast, but this restaurant serves my favorite dishes the way they taste back home, absolutely flawless.The restaurant is impeccably clean and beautifully and tastefully decorated as well. I was pleasantly surprised to find such amazing food here while passing through Greenville. Good Job Saffron!

The title says it all, I eat here every 2-3 weeks. The good is extremely good and consistent since it opened. Make sure you make a reservation on Fri-Sat nights, then and the weekday lunch buffet (which is solid) are when the place can get rather full.
