I love coming to saffron for their top notch lunch buffet. It is the best fast Indian food you can find on that side of town. The wait staff is always super happy to help you out in choosing what to eat too!

Visiting Greenville and popped in for dinner on a Sunday night. Obviously this is a popular take out spot as 8 people were waiting for food by the front desk. We were seated quickly to an appropriately socially distanced table. Papadum and chutney served immediately, ordered delicious chai tea. The samosas and pakora were the best we’ve had in ages- the pakora batter was light and crispy, didn’t obscure the veggies, and the kale and onion are highly recommended! Entree options are diverse- you’ll find the usual tikka masala, korma, and vindaloo, but also chef’s specials. My husband and I ordered one meat and two veggie dishes. All were appropriately spiced and individually delicious. Way too much food, but we love leftovers! Every staff member we interacted with was so friendly, and accommodating- even the owner stopped by to check on us after our meal. Great spot, highly recommend for your next trip to Greenville.

My wife and I aren't big on take-out, but we wanted Indian food and where better to go than Saffron. So we called and picked it up and the rest was great. Everything we asked for including the way we wanted it was perfect. They wrap everything so it stays warm and delicious just like if you were eating at the restaurant. The Meat Samosa, Shrimp Saag, Lamb Masla, and the Garlic Naan was excellent. If you want excellent Indian food during these difficult pandemic times go to Saffron's

We are not take-out people, but Saffron's is differently one of the best in the Greenville, area. We ordered the Shrimp Saag, Shrimp Coconut Curry, Lamb Masala, Garlic Naan, and Meat Samosa, All were very good, and they pack everything up very nicely. We enjoyed everything and can hopefully sit inside in the future.

My wife and I were joining friends for a simple dinner for new year's eve so we could then be home when the ball dropped but wanted great Indian food so we did take-out from Saffon. I do not like take-out but from Saffon it was almost as good as if we ate there. If you want ec=xcellent Indian food Saffon is the best place in Greenville, SC. Even take-out is great. We had Shrimp Masala, Shrimp Saag, Lamb Pasanda, & Goat Curry with 3 Garkic Naans.

My first experience eating at an Indian restaurant was spot on. This restaurant came highly recommended by a friend, and the food was awesome, and our service was excellent. My daughter, SIL, and I all had different entrees, and we all raved about our choices. I had the lamb samosas for an appetizer, and I was kind enough to share. My daughter and SIL had been to other Indian restaurants but said this was better than their earlier choices. My chicken was tasty, and my daughter let me taste her shrimp and it was yummy I said I know what I will order my next visit. Our waitress was very nice and had a beautiful smiie and made sure we decided hiw spicy we wanted our meal. The garlic Naan was so good. We agreed we would definitely return.

Friday, the 16th of April, 2021 8:28PM EST Order number 6773 Table 2 Saffron Indian Cuisine at 1178 Woodruff Road in Greenville, South Carolina 29607 is the finest Indian restaurant in all of Greenville. The service is excellent! The food is of superior quality. The quantity of the portions are perfect. It’s apparent the chef in charge takes extreme pride in attention to detail. The owner of this establishment operates one of the cleanest restaurants I have ever visited. The bathrooms are very clean. The dining area is open and well appointed. I look forward to our next visit. Thank again for such a wonderful experience

We are frequent guests at Saffron and adore the food. The update to the interior that they did last year is really lovely. However we do not like the new menu design! I have never seen an Indian menu like it! It's one of those "pick a protein, pick a starch" sort of one and it's difficult to understand. We took some friends who had never had Indian food before and they had no clue what to order. We have certain dishes that we like, so we just ordered, but our favorite - Murgh Makhani - is nowhere to be found, though it's available. Perhaps they are wanting to be trendy, but as my husband said " every restaurant has featured dishes or recommendations" to guide a diner, but Saffron has none. It's not a big deal, just an opinion...

.... This is the place to go! I have never had better! The sauces are outstanding and flavorful but well balanced... and the meats are tender. Not the usual mystery meat hidden under some bland sauce. The Naan bread is outstanding! If you are overwhelmed by all the choices try the preset dinner for two including a variety of ample appetizers, entrees, and dessert! A standard fare is the tiki masala which is tender all white chicken in a tomato based sauce that will leave you craving for more as you soak up the last bit of sauce with your garlic Naan!!

We've done take-out from Saffron during the pandemic which was great, but eating in is outstanding. This is truly the best Indian restaurant in the upstate. We enjoyed everything we ordered and truly consider our experience to be outstanding from the service to the food. We shared the Meat Samosa, Garlic Naan, Shrimp Saag, and the Goat Masala.

Several reviewers posted about the buffet at this restaurant. We stopped for lunch today and they did not have a buffet. That probably explains why their lunch crowd consisted of one table. I'm sure their food is wonderful, but I like to try a variety of Indian dishes, so a buffet is essential. Don't stop here looking for one, though.

Saffron is one of our favorite places to eat. Since the pandemic, we have just been getting takeout, but the food is still great! Saffron has continued to be safe during the pandemic. They started with just curbside pick up, bringing your food right to your car. Now that restaurants in our area have been open for some time, you need to pick up inside, but the staff are always wearing masks. If you are looking for great food from a restaurant that is safety conscious then definitely check out Saffron.

Absolutely delicious food. Delicate flavors blended just right. Options from very mild to spicy, just tell them. Service was excellent and priced reasonably. Enough food to fill you but not so much you feel guilty leaving any. Best Pakoras in the world.

We visited Saffron for the first time on Valentine's Day having no reservations. While waiting about 40 minutes, having a cocktail & glass of wine we schmused with the owner & his daughter. Lovely people, nicely decorated rooms too. We were finally seated and ordered the Valentine's Day Special for two. The staff was very attentive and the food tasted fantastic. Highly recommended. Will definitely be returning again. Perhaps we'll make reservations next time.

On the plus side, the service was excellent and friendly. The selection of food and beverages was extensive and interesting. But on the negative side, the flavors did not meet my expectations. I have been too Indian restaurants here and in the UK and I expect an explosion of flavors and aromas, which were missing here. The curry was spiced as I ordered but I could detect nothing more than tomato and cumin in the brown sauce. I could not have told you that the meat was lamb. I have to say that high end curry powder in specialty stores is more flavorful. Oh, the nan was wonderful. We will try again because there are many more interesting items on the menu.
