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

I don't like buffets in general, but the food as always very tasty. Crowded near noon time. Nothing is super spicy either.

Always awesome food. Lunch buffet has something for everyone, whether vegetarian or meat eater. One also can order from the menu, as well. Great service and friendly staff who greet the regulars like family.

When I travel to Greenville on business I always eat at least once at Saffron. The vegetable masala is great and the saffron sampler is good if you are having trouble deciding and want a little of everything. The lunch buffet is reasonably priced and includes a variety of choices.

Tandoori shrimp is one of the best dishes I have tried. Breads are always delicious and crispy as well. Rice is aromatic and fluffy.

Been here with a colleague to catch up on Indian food, been on tour for almost a week and had a craving for Indian food. They had bread toast for starters which was a put down for me, was expecting something little more exciting. Rest of the menu was pretty decent. The options of main course was fine. If they... More

You can travel around the globe and not find Indian food this good. It is a GOURMET buffet. Literally!

I travel quite a bit and this is still my very favorite Indian restaurant! The buffet is exceptional. And an evening dinner usually offers a little slower, more elegant experience. Nothing but praise for this place. 😊❤
