Tasty Indian buffet for lunch. Good tasting water, no after taste. This was my wife's first taste of Indian food and she enjoyed it very much. A great bargain at less than $10 per person when you think of what fast-food costs these days.

The menu is huge and the lunch buffet is to die for! I have been coming for years and the service is the best every single time and the service​ is always on point. I have never had a bad meal here and that's what keeps me coming back. Now if they could just put one in Spartanburg.

We were traveling to Charlotte, and read reviews for Saffron, so stopped in Greenville for lunch. The only negative is the incredible traffic on Woodruff Road. The restaurant was busy, but had a calm atmosphere with white linen table cloths and black linen napkins. The waiter was prompt and friendly. We seldom do buffets, but had read good reports and...

The food is delicious, they have a big selection in the buffet daily, the prices is fair. The only thing I dislike is the service, they have a lot of people and sometimes you have to wait a lot for a table and the waiters are very confused or don't know why but they don't follow the turns, the last...

Just the fact that we drive from Asheville to Greenville solely to eat here should tell you how good it is. The first time we ate here we figured it was good because a good deal of the customers are Indian. We had some samosas, chicken vindaloo, seekh kabab and chili naan. Everything was outstanding. Service was good even though... More

My wife and I stopped in at another restaurant nearby on Valentine's Day and the wait was too long. As we were leaving the area we saw Saffron and decided to try it. Although the had a reasonably priced valentine special we opted to order from the menu. My wife had scallop jalfraze and ordered a garden salad. The salad... More

I had heard a lot of nice things about this restaurant and also to expect a crowd. at lunch. Both comments were true. The food was hot, fresh and very tasty and although there was a crowd at lunch, it did not take long to get a table. I highly recommend this restaurant
