I'm so glad you guys are running a Ramadan promo on Saffron Road foods. They are a great go-to option for me when I don't have the time to prepare halal meals at home. I can still eat good halal without going out to a restaurant. They are hardly ever on sale, so I'm glad for this! Thanks!

It would be lemongrass basil chicken because I love chicken and basil, but wonder what it would taste like with lemongrass.

I would try the lemongrass basil chicken because its a traditional meal, however it has a kick to it by using lemongrass. Lemongrass is used but its not an essential spice in traditional cookings so I would love to try it!

The chicken tikka masala and the lemongrass basil chicken sound wonderful. I would definitely try those. I support any company that practices responsible farming. Can't wait to try your meals.

I'm very eager to try the lemongrass basil chicken. It's very difficult to find Halal prepared mals that are not your typical Indo-Pak cuisine. I'm so impressed with the Saffron Road Line up of Frozen meals. I can' t wait to try them all.

I am a pretty darn good cook. I make very good chicken tikka and lamb koftis. I have yet to find a readymade version that tastes like my home made. I would like to find one as it would make my life a bit simpler as I work full time and volunteer full time too. I have tried pretty much everything that is available in the market and have been disappointed, I am skeptical that saffron brand is as good as the one I make at home but happy to give it a shot.........after all what is life without hope?

Will look for saffron road next time I'm in the store. Wanna try the chicken biryani for sure and off course the rest of the line as it is hallal.

I am a patriotic, vegan American and I am shocked by this unwise business decision. Halal is disgusting, unsanitary and incredibly cruel to animals. Unfortunately, I will no longer be able to be a Whole foods customer.

I have never tried Saffron Road products but the Tandoori chicken nuggets sounds and looks amazing.

Thanks so much for contributing to our blessed month! I love the ease of frozen meals and these look delicious! I would try the lamb with cous cous, because that is a difficult dish to make homemade. My family and I plan on visiting a local store next week to stock up! Peace! :)

“Halal food preparation is unsanitary and cruel to animals. I regret that I will no longer be a customer in your store. The corporate decision was unwise; halal food is “blessed” by an imam who includes in the prayer a curse for all non-muslims who consume it. I would feel very uncomfortable having to check each purchase there, and offering this alternative was a poor business choice”

Oh, wow! They all sound delicious, but I'm most excited to try the Lamb Vindaloo!

I've tried a few of the Saffron Road meal already, chicken biryani and chicken tikka masala. I am amazed that any frozen food product could taste this good! I've already been back to Whole Foods to buy the meals again. I would love to try the Moroccan lamb stew!
