“The best Indian food I have had!”
Reviewed 14 June 2011

Let's face it. No one goes to Kalamazoo expecting to run into good Indian restaurants!
But expect a huge surprise. Saffron, tucked away in a small Kalamazoo plaza, probably has the best Indian food that I have ever tasted at a restaurant in North America. You may compare this restaurant to ones in big cities with large Indian populations - Chicago, Toronto, NY - beats them all! The food is simply amazing. Service is fantastic. Everything on the menu is good. Appetizers are phenomenal. You must try the "mango lassi" - a sweet drink (they make it really well here).

“Excellent”
Reviewed 16 December 2010

My wife and I stopped by for a meal before finishing our Christmas shopping. Wow!!! I have had authentic Indian food before but my wife has not. The wait staff was excellent with offering suggestions. They even went as far as suggesting foods for both of us that would compliment each other. My wife was somewhat nervous since she didn't know what she ordered but she was overjoyed when the food came. It was one of the best meals that either of us have had. My wife is now trying to set up a time when we can go back.

“Best indian food in Kalamazoo”
Reviewed 21 August 2010

The food choices are great and the food is authentic and well prepared. Good value for the money. The wine list is not very large so the choices are limited.
We don't favor indian food so we don't come often but when we do we enjoy it!
The service is very good and the staff is very attentive and accomodating.
The location is in a little strip mall but acceptable.
