Pit Stop in Greenville, SC - Saffron Indian Cuisine

Garlic Naan - warm and just out of the oven.

On the way to the NC mountains I stopped for dinner at Saffron Indian Cuisine in Greenville, SC for a very enjoyable dinner. The Kachumber salad, chicken tikka masala and okra dishes I tried, along with the garlic naan, were all delicoius. I also sampled a mango lassi and tried a sip of fabulous hot spiced tea. Apparently Saffron has a great lunch buffet also. This is a nice place to stop along I-85 between Atlanta and Charlotte (Exit 51, Woodruff Road, turn right) if you're looking for a good meal. We did spend about an hour here so it's not th best place to come if you're in a hurry. Still, if it's lunchtime, I'm sure the buffet would be much faster! There is also a Whole Foods at this exit as well as many other restaurants.

Must be something about Indian restaurants named Saffron. Although the two aren't affiliated, Saffron serves the best Indian in GSO.

Spicy food is not good at all for me at all, i prefer the real taste of the food by itself, prepare it i mean, thanks
