I've eaten here many times and enjoyed the food. As an American, I always wondered how close it is to the real thing. I visited India four times and on my last visit, I ate lunch at Saffron immediately upon my arrival back in the...More

Do not miss this restaurant. A midday buffet is reasonably priced and always includes tandoori chicken and at least one other main dish, both white and saffron rice, veggies, and delicious rice pudding. Great for dinner and for take out. Great staff.

NIce restaurant. Love the food and the servers are all very nice. Tables could be just a bit farther apart, but overall the ambiance is A+. Love the biryani, the naan (try the cheese/greens naan), and the desserts. A pleasant surprise!!!

We have been there 3 time and continue to plan to go back! Their food is so good! Authentic and flavorful! There is also a lot of variety, not only in meats but the way the dishes are prepared. Love it!

This was one of our favorite places to eat, but not sure we will be back for a long time if at all. Perhaps the worst service I've ever had at a restaurant. Our server completely ditched us about half way through the meal. We...More

There were many unique curry dishes that aren’t normally seen in Indian Restaurants around West Michigan. Overall, it was a worthwhile experience!

If you can get to Saffron for the lunch buffet, DO IT. It's packed with great dishes, but be sure to save room for dessert (also on the buffet). Friendly staff, fresh food, wide range of options (veggie, meat, spicy, not spicy). Love it here!

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.
