This spot is in the backside of a shopping center and we had to circle around before I spotted it. The pretty gold and black framed tapestries that adorn the walls provide the space with an air of sophistication. I was unaware that this was one of five locations. We were greeted promptly and seated, there were only a few... More

This is our favorite Indian restaurant in Greensboro. We have eaten here every time we are in town. Nice buffet lunch, but ordering from the menu is also very good.

I was in Greensboro for a day trip and was looking for healthy wholesome lunch, vegetarian but not a salad. Saffron was a pleasant surprise. Unlike the spice overloaded greasy dishes of many Indian restaurants, this one was different buffet. A great choice of vegetarian and non vegetarian options. Flavorful as opposed to hot, no artificial colors in the name... More

This place used to be the best in town, but through the years they continue to cut corners and the buffet gets smaller and smaller. We went here because I had a groupon I needed to use. Food was mediocre and tasteless. I only had one plate and couldn't even finish it. Left still very hungry. My husband thought the... More

When my two favorite Indian restaurants in Greensboro closed, I had to find a new Indian lunch buffet and Saffron is it. Although there are fewer vegetarian options than I'm used to, the food is fresh, well-prepared and it tastes very good. The restaurant is clean, bright and nicely appointed, but it lacks soft surfaces, so the noise level can... More

We had dinner here last night and were pleased with everything from service to food to bill. My wife and I have been here several times before and expected no less for this date night. The service was prompt, polite and not intrusive. I especially like how helpful and accommodating the waitstaff is, and that extended to other staff as... More

I love to eat here for lunch- the food is delicious and they offer a nice selection. The buffet is especially nice because you can sample so many different entrées and sides. The restaurant is "tastefully" decorated and clean. The staff has always been pleasant and the prices reasonable. If you like Indian cuisine, I'd recommend giving them a try.

Perhaps a bit more North American than pure Indian, but otherwise good food and nice buffet selection so you can readily find something to your liking.

On Sundays this place is crowded with people crammed together in a very small space. Waiter's were running around grabbing unfinished plates as if hurrying folks out the door. One waiter slammed a bill in front of my friend while she had a plate full of food and was nowhere near checking out. It wasn't even our bill, but the... More
