Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Wonderful dinner. Vegan and meat options for the family to enjoy. A great place to end the day for dinner. We will be back in our next trip to Greenville.

I have to say that I'm a huge fan of Indian food, and Saffron doesn't disappoint. The food here is excellent. The naan, coconut shrimp, butter chicken, even the rice was great! I would highly recommend. But make sure you have reservations, first time we...went was 2 hour wait so we had to leave. Next day we went back with reservations for lunch and got in with about 1/2 hour wait. It's worth the wait!More

I'm not a fan of Indian food with all of the curry, however, this was excellent. The menu was easy to read and understand what you were ordering.

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.More

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.More

There is no one even close to Saffron. Their food is always fresh and tasty. I highly recommend the lam curry. All of their nan is great, especially the garlic nan.

While restaurant is low on ambience , more like a diner , however very clean the food is first rate . I have been twice which shows returning how much I liked food . Loved the samosas first time very fresh and soft second seemed...a bit hard outside . Plenty bread options like Nan an poppodoms . Had standard chicken tikka massala and very good lamb buhna gosht . Quality of meat very good and plentiful . Mango lassi very tasty drink . Definitely one of the best curries I have had and very good value . Service very friendly. Definitely worth a visit .More

When my family want good Indian food, we go up to Saffron. I like to get the lamb dishes, although sometimes I will go vegetarian. I like the curries and sauces. The mulligitawny soup is also very yummy. If you are in Greenville and haven't...gone to Saffron yet, I suggest you go there as soon as it is possible.More

Got a to go order and did not realize that you have to check each container on the way out. The containers were all half full and my daughters chicken soup was just some broth with two chicken chunks. This is beyond sad.

I ordered takeaway and it did not come with utensils- be warned! That said, it was OMG good! Medium hot was perfectly spiced. Chicken kirma, garlic naan and rice pudding. Supremely delicious and authentic. Nice size serving for the price. Served as two meals.

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.More
