Assalam Allaykum,(hello), i think it is very wonderful of whole foods and saffron road to hook like this and create something,while keeping muslims and halal in mind. i think it's going out of their way for a good customer service, especially during the Blessed month of Ramadam. so once again thank you to you all from all the muslim brothers and sisters in San Francisco.

I tried the Halal Saffron Road Chicken 'tandoori' and absolutely loved, mainly bought it because it was 'responsibly' produced, with humane treatment/raising/slaughtering of chicken, but am definitely going to purchase again because of the amazing flavor. Thank you for offering this product.

I would love to try the Lemongrass Basil Chicken because it sounds very delicious, and something I can't get at home :0

I would try the Moroccan Stew and see how it compares to our Moroccan cooking at home.

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 :)

I won't be shopping at Whole Foods. Whole Foods sent an email to all its U.S. stores specifically telling the franchises not to promote Ramadan this year. The Houston Press obtained a copy of the email: “It is probably best that we don’t specifically call out or ‘promote’ Ramadan,” reads a portion of that email. “We should not highlight Ramadan in signage in our stores as that could be considered ‘Celebrating or promoting’ Ramadan.” This reversal marks “a significant departure from years past, when Whole Foods has promoted its halal items during Ramadan with small signs that displayed a crescent moon, the symbol of Islam.”

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'd try the Moroccan Lamb Stew for several reasons. One, it's Moroccan and therefore not the usual frozen food item. And two, it incorporates lamb which is also unusual for frozen food lines. I deeply appreciate Whole Foods bringing halal products to market and for recognizing Ramadan as one of many important religious holidays in America.

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 :)

I bought some of the chicken tenders to try because they are also gluten free! I also appreciate that you are offering (and promoting) foods that help people celebrate and still comply with the strictures of their religion. And quite frankly I don't get why people are making a negative fuss about it!

You should also ad Midamar products and also increase Indian Halal foods. Also please add Molokhiya. It is like Spinach but richer in Vitamin A and fiber. Egyptians cook it in broth. It is usually sold in frozen packets.

Thank you Saffron Road for expanding your halal frozen dinner entrees at Whole Foods. I would try the chicken phad thai because ive never had a halal chicken phad thai before. I usually get shrimp or tofu when eating thai food! I would also like to try the Moroccan lamb stew!

Re: Halal. Do you also sell Kosher food (marked with either a U or the word Pareve)? The Halal markings are rather in-your-face; not subtle as are Kosher markings

Yummm! All the flavors look enticing, esp when I'm fasting. I'd go for the lemongrass basil chicken first, just b/c the combination sounds delicious. Then, defn one of the meaty dishes.

Excellent. I think I will go to Whole Foods for my grocery stuff. I usually go to Costco for some halal meat too. Thanks WholeFoods!
