Good food and a great place to go on a date if you both enjoy that type of food... Food is very flavorful... Saffron is nestled in a plaza-so there is plenty of parking and it is closed Sunday's... It's is family owned and operated...

We went for the lunch buffet and were clearly disappointed by the quality of food. The quality of rice was mediocre and apart from the Nan bread there was nothing that could distinctly qualify to be termed as Indian food. It seemed that most wouldn't know and the restaurant perhaps survives on its clientele's lack of knowledge of authentic Indian... More

Best Indian ever! As good as any I have ever had. Super friendly service. I had chicken curry at 7/10 heat and it was perfect for me. Basmati rice delicious with peas and herbs. Garlic naan awesome! Loved this meal!!

Ever time that we come here we receive bad service and cold food. There servers are very inattentive and the food tastes like it has been cooked sits under a heat lamp for some time before being delivered. We have never had a good experience here and wouldn't recommend this place to anyone:

I've been going to Saffron since it opened, and have never had a bad meal there. The service, the food, the ambience...all add up to a very enjoyable dining experience. A lot of people assume that Indian food means hot, spic curry - and nothing else. Wrong! Yes, there's curry on the menu, but, like with every other dish that's... More

This is one of Kalamazoo's best kept secrets. The food is consistently delicious. Staff are very friendly. I've never had a bad experience when going to Saffron.

I am from India so eating at an Indian restaurant tends to make me compare the food to a home cooked meal. This place is really good. If you have not tried this restaurant yet, you should. We arrived for dinner around 5:15 pm with only 1 couple seated in the restaurant. By 5:45 the place was packed! I thought... More

I love their lunch buffet. Being able to try all those items is great. All of my visits there have been wonderful. Palak Paneer and the Butter Chicken are amazing.

First time I ever had Indian food was here. The lamb vindaloo (sp?) over rice is amazing. A little spicy, but so good.

This is a great place to take a friend, or child who has never tried Indian food. There are so many things to choose that it suits almost everyone. My favorite part is the Vegetable and Fruit salad.
