I'm married to a thai and so has been exposed to different thai food from their family dishes. I have always ordered pad thai in all thai restaurants to see who has the best. So Im curious to what the saffron road pad thai has to offer.excited to also try chicken biryani. My college friend is pakistani and introduced me a while back to this amazing dish.

I love whole foods and get all my breakfast foods from here. I never tried saffron road, but now that there is a variety of halal meat options, I will be getting my lunch and dinner from here too! I love spinach so I have to try the lamb saag. And pad thai is always tasty, so I have to get the chicken pad thai too. I plan on sampling every single one eventually. When I find a food I like, I stick to it, and I hope Saffron Road becomes a favorite for me!

First off, a huge thank you to Saffron Road and Whole Foods for providing this to us. Secondly, I can't decide!! They all look too good to be true. But if I had to pick I'd go with the one that sounds the most fun to try- the Lamb Vindaloo :)

Whole foods you rock, Saffron Road does too. I would like to try the Lemongrass and Basil Chicken, and then the Moroccan Lamb Stew, and after that, EVERYTHING (not at the same time of course.) I would like to try those because they sound very flavorful, plus it is all Halal. MMM. I have tried the Lamb Vindaloo and the Lamb Saag and both were seriously amazing!!!! Yum.

I'm really excited to try some Chicken Pad Thai since I've never had that before! I've always had to eat the vegetarian option in restaurants. Thank you Whole Foods for providing this option to us!

I would try the Chicken Pad Thai, because I can never have that at Thai places, since the chicken is not halal. Thanks for adding Halal Products to your line of quality healthy products! I am excited to try all of them.

I have tried your Chicken Tikka Masala & Chicken Biryani. If you can't get to an Indian restaurant, this is the next best thing. Very tasty and very convenient.

I am moving to LA next week. I was searching for Halal food options and came across this blog post. I am wondering, if Saffron Road frozen entrees are available at every Whole Food store or specific stores.

I would like to try chicken pad thai, as I always ended up eating vegetarian food at any restaurant. I want to find out the distinct flavor of it. I also would love to try Moroccon lamb, for the very same reason.

My husband is a very picky eater and being nine months pregnant it's hard to cook this Ramadhan, so I just grabbed the Morrocan lamb stew, chicken pad thai and chicken biryani to test out for iftar. Alhamdullilah he loved it...and I'll be heading back to Whole Foods for more :)

For those who have not tried Halal food, Try it! Halal meat tastes a lot better than regular meat and it is a lot healthier (if you are a meat eater that is). I haven't tried this frozen Halal food but since it is very difficult to find fresh Halal meat around here I'm thrilled and ready to try it. I'll let you all know if it tastes as good. Have a nice day and be healthy and happy! :)

I just want to applaud the respect that Whole Foods shows to all cultures. This is a big step and I hope to see other chain stores adopt a similar approach.

I would drive 2 hours away to try all of the new saffron halal entrees. I just wish they would go on sale so I can buy more at a time. I love the fact that they are expanding this line of foods cause it always great to try something new & halal is an added bonus!

Chicken pad Thai. Why? Because it would save me a 25 mile drive!!!!

I am interested in trying Saffron Road Halal meat products because I am a muslim and it is difficult to find diet restricted foods in the market place and also because it is Ramadan and the prepared food makes it easy on the households to prepare the evening meal which is at the end of long days of fasting.

I would love to try all of these to be honest (and most likely will). But I think I will bee-line to the Chicken Tikka Masala and Moroccan Lamb first. Thanks WFM for venturing into Halal foods. It is a kind, thoughtful gesture and I'm sure it will pay off.

Thank you Whole Foods for carrying halal foods! I plan to try the chicken pad Thai first because I love Thai food and its very difficult to find it halal.

Just tried the Lamb Saag, it was great. The cooking directions were a little long for a new microwave. But I knew before I cooked it and so shortened the timie. My next lunch to try will be the Chicken Tike Masala because I really enjoy it at my local Indian restaurant. I have high hopes it will be as tasty as the Lamb Saag.

I would love to try the Chicken Pad Thai. A combination between chicken and rice noodles is always amazing!

Lamb Vindaloo! I love Indian food, especially spicy. And this entree will fit the bill very nicely. Thank you.
