A cut above the usual Curry Hill offerings, this small Indian restaurant takes extra care with its dosas, curries, and other South Indian classics.

authentic – its actually indian... not to say non indians are not welcome, they most definitely are. everything about this vegetarian restaurant is 5 star, well its not fancy, but the food is for a great price.. indian food is complex... dosas are not something u should try at home.. ha !

Delicious Indian place. – This place probably has one of the most flavorful chicken tikka masalas that I've had. So we usually go here and order vegetable samosas, chicken tikka masala which comes with rice and a plain naan, then we add on an onion naan. Everything about this place is awesome and it's a close distance from my office so we walk here after work for dinner a lot.

love this place – Tiffin is extremely delicious and affordable! Amazing lunch buffet (I think about $7.50)

I love a bunch of Indian restaurants in that area, but after a while I found myself going to Madras Mahal for the yummy food and going to Chennai Garden for their much better badam halwa for desert. When I went to Tiffin Wallah for the first time I got to have amazing food+ amazing desert under one roof! No more having to go restaurant hopping to have the best Indian meal!

Service was great, food was stellar and the price is unbeatable! – I was really impressed by this place. The dishes were amazing and the restaurant treated us well. Best of all was the cheap food that was big enough to share!

Worst – i have no doubt n saying this is the worst place i ever tried for food.very unprofessional people.manager at the back -dark man is very rude.food is very suboptimal, place looks unhygenic(saw roches),saw waiters picking there nose.gross. would never go there again.if u guys have concern about hygeine,care about ur money,want to have decent meal--then this is not the place for u.if there was a star less than one i would choose that

eat, leave – went for lunch this week and was very happy with the quality of the food, especially for such a low price (we didn't realize it was buffet only at lunch). however, the rudeness of the host dampened an otherwise good experience - we were asked to leave within a few short minutes of finishing our food - neither of us went up for seconds & we occupied the table for 28 minutes total (! checked my watch after in disbelief). even friendly attempts to ask to be allowed to digest the meal for 5 minutes while seated proved to be in vain. perhaps charging a few more dollars & letting the customer actually feel welcome would alleviate some of his attitude?

Worst Indian food I've ever tasted – My boyfriend is Indian, and I've accompanied him back to India, so I've had plenty of Indian food. This was by far the blandest we've tasted. However, we both ordered Gujarati dishes at Tiffin Wallah, and we noticed that the menu's emphasis was South Indian, so we're willing to give this place one more shot. However, the Gujarati thali and uthiyu curry we ordered were completely flavorless. There was not even any butter in my curry, despite the menu's promise. Come on, at least give me a splash of ghee, or some cumin or coriander seeds. The meal's only bright spot were the aloo pakoras. Please avoid North Indian food at this place--you won't be sorry.

Great Meal and Service – This is the 2nd time I have eaten at Tiffin Wallah and the food has been excellent. Nicely prepared vegetarian dishes that are not greasy at all. Food is served on lovely dishes. Waiter made suggestions that were terrific. Very clean and contemporary feel to the restaurant. Service was professional and attentive. Great value.
