enjoy the indian food – really good indian food, the soup and the lamb, cooked to perfection,. very tasty!!
Lunch Hour – you have to eat the buffet its so good and filling. Its a great place to meet up with friends.
Real Ethnic Food – Love the fact that a place in Chicago is serving such ethnic Asian/Indian cuisine for such a great price! Really underestimated this place, but am genuinely pleased with the selection and prices!
Its one to Like – Its one of those places that just seems welcoming from the start. When first finding out about them, I even knew that things were in good and and seemed the way a good restaurant should be. Staff is pleasant, and menu is a good start.
Pretty place, slightly above average food – We went on a Wednesday night when the place was virtually empty, so perhaps this explains why our experience with the staff was different than the previous reviewers' experiences, but I have to say, service at Tiffin was outstanding, among the best I've ever experienced in an Indian restaurant. I don't think our water glasses ever dipped below half empty.
The ambiance was spot-on. Dark wood, dim lights, white tablecloths--it's actually almost romantic in atmosphere. We definitely didn't have an issue with the decor.
The food was decent. Papadum was decent and the naan was amazing--so puffy, in a good way. The rice was the usual plain, boring stuff everyone charges extra for these days. For entrees, I got the chicken makahni and my boyfriend got the chicken tikka masala. I didn't love the makahni--the chicken was excellently cooked, very moist, but the sauce was way too thin. It barely stayed on the spoon for serving. In terms of flavors and spices, I asked for medium, but what I got was actually quite bland. Heat aside, the flavors were good. My boyfriend liked the tikka masala, but had the same sauce consistency issue as I did.
The portions weren't huge, which was disappointing, since we usually have half our entrees left over for lunch the next day, and at Tiffin, my boyfriend only had sauce left and I had maybe a quarter of the dish left--and we weren't outrageously hungry that night or anything.
Overall, I'd give this place another shot, definitely.
Outstanding food, great ambiance – This was a fantastic restaurant. The service was amazing, the food exceptional, the entire atmosphere was calm and sophisticated. I look forward to going back
DON'T GO HERE – This is the worst Indian Restaurant I ever dined in. My friend?s girl friend's purse was stolen by an employee or patron and the owners kept on insisting that she did not bring her purse with while the surveillance proved otherwise. Bad food, worst experience and servers who do not speak English. DON?T dine here. FYI Udipi Restaurant is owned by the owners of Tiffin.
great food and ambiance, but poor air conditioning. – Achar Chicken, Rohan Josh Lamb are excellent choices. Just watch out for the poor air-conditioning. Very spicy, but I love it that way. Just ask for very mild if you need it to be. Enjoy!
Great Indian Food on Devon! – The restaurant is one of the best on Devon serving Indian food. The restaurant a nice ambience, the staff are friendly and accommodating and the food is excellent. I highly recommend the lamb chops and the chicken/lamb curries. As with most North Indian restaurants, where fish is not a staple, and being Goan (south India) I keep away from the seafood. I have been burned every time I venture into seafood. I recommend this place from all the restaurants on Devon as a must try.
Good Setting But Worst Food And Service – I have been to Tiffin about three times. Tiffin has a great decor and fancy look to it. If you are entering Tiffin for the first time you will be very impress with the whole setup. One word comes to mind which is "very nice" Generally speaking its prompt seating if you have made reservations. I will not recommend you to go there specially on weekend without calling ahead. I will give the over all setting and decor a rating of 9 out of 10. Few things that I look for in a restaurant other than setting is the service and food. I have been eating Indian food for over ten years. I have even been to India multiple times to have tried authentic Indian food in India. Unfortunately at Tiffin the food is far from best. One way to put is over priced low quality Indian food. I was very disappointed with their meat dishes specially their chicken and lamb dishes were far from perfect. The only thing that is some what ok is their seafood products. I will give food quality a rating of 3 out of 10. Another turnoff at Tiffin is the level of service provided. There is always a long wait time before a server will take your order and equally long wait time by the time the food is served on your table. On my last visit wit my girlfriend i had to wait over an hour for our food to be served. On top of that their servers lacks personal skills. I will give service 1 out of 10 in rating. Over all i will not go to Tiffin any more and will not recommend it if you are looking for good food with great service.
