Stopped in Greenville for the afternoon and night on the way to BlueRidge Parkway. Found Saffron on TripAdvisor. Since we love indian food decided to give it a try. So glad we did. Hubby and I shared Onion Bjahia, special dinner and Taj Mahal Lager. Plenty for the two of us. The food is delicious. Worth making a special trip... More

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!

Thank Tina S
