Delicious food. Great atmosphere. The lunch buffet is awesome. Good choice for vegetarians. If you like Indian food this is a great option.

My family and I have been coming to Saffron for years, and needless to say we're addicted! I have traveled to many big cities and eaten Indian food there - New York, Paris, Barcelona - and I have never found Indian food as good as Saffron in Greenville. The buffet is absolutely WONDERFUL and the price is right. Would HIGHLY... More

Had the tandoori mixed grill with naan bread and kulfi desert (pistachio ice cream). Had the flying horse lager with the main course. Took the wife who, while hesitant at first to try indian food, ended the night very happy she had visited. Would highly recommend. Get here early on the weekend--it's very popular.

I was staying just round the block at the Hampton Inn and after a long day at work I didn't want to have to travel down Woodruff Rd to eat at a chain diner. Luckily my Tripadvisor app showed me this treasure. I had a very pleasant dinner without the over the top Indian music you find in some Indian... More

We used to live here and this was a go to spot. Tasty and fast. The buffet is amazing and the price can't be beat. Lunch is the time to go but don't be late as it gets busy. Authentic too, or at least acceptable, as lots of Indian families come too. I can't wait to go back.

The food was great, the ambiance also. I was tired when we came in, a little stressed about the drive we were taking, and this staff treated us so kindly and respectfully, and then delivered easily the best naan I've ever had, followed by great mains. :) Next time I try dessert!

I stopped in for dinner while on a business trip. I love Indian food; my family lacks culinary adventure. I always look for food opportunities when I am on my own. It was great to find this gem. The server recommended a chicken dish that was a specialty and a remarkable bread. Great service and amazing food!

I visited this place alternate days for dinner while I was in Greenville. Service is quick and prompt. Taste wise the food is really good and they help to get the make to order done for the spice level that you need All vegetarian options are good and I have tried paneer, mix veg, dal, jeera rice, veg biryani

In the four years we have lived in S.C. we have eaten at Saffron's more than a dozen times. It is our favorite place to take friends ... or bring take-out back to the house .... to introduce people to Indian food. If you have never eaten Indian, the menu can be intimidating. We have not invited anyone to Saffron's,... More
