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...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.

We had dinner at Saffron during our recent trip to Kalamazoo. It was a cold Sat. evening before Valentine's Day and the place was crowded. Food was very good and tasty, on par with the better Indian restaurants in Chicago or Detroit. It's a little...More

I've been to Saffron many times both for business lunches and with my wife. The buffet is reasonably priced (under $12) and always delicious. It usually has a nice selection of vegetarian and meat dishes, two kinds of rice, and the most fantastic almond rice...More

Sorry for the late reply. You may order lunch from the menu for lunch. I do not know if they have changed their hours for lunch time.
