Delicious Indian place. 10/26/2010

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. more

Very satisfying Southern Indian food. All vegetarian, with some less standard dishes (like the section of Gujarati curries), and a good value. more

Service was great, food was stellar and the price is unbeatable! 5/15/2008

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! Pros: Five Stars all around Cons: I love meat more

eat, leave 3/28/2008

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? more

Worst Indian food I've ever tasted 3/18/2008

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. Pros: The attentive service, the aloo pakoras Cons: The Gujarati dishes more

Best Indian 12/4/2007

Best vegetarian Indian food, better than Channai Garden. Food is not greasy yet tasty. Service is excellent. Pros: cheap and good. more

Great Meal and Service 10/25/2007

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. Pros: great food, attentive service, amazing value more

Server, Food & unclean 10/21/2007

Is one thing when server is rude which you probably will cope with that if you are really hungry & food is good. As I was seated after straight 15 mins waiting by the door like a fool not like this place was packed that they could not acknowledge 6 ft brown guy last sat night. I had to catch a show so I was in rush so I clearly informed the host who looked like he didnt give R*ts A**.Waiter came with annoyed face didnt event fill me any water or ask for some drink. Straight for order since I was in rush I didnt care placed an order for Mysore Masal dosa specifically asked to make it spicy & cripy I do not like soft dos & again asked him to make it ASAp. Is now 20mins since I ordered & I still do not have my food. So my hungry stomach is very upset and is taking over my temper ....I am trying to get my servers attention he is completely ignored me.So after 5 mins my Dosa shows up Yeah finally. Forgeting everything I touched my dosa as I am crabbing a piece of my delayed dosa which happend to be soft like a cotton . Now I am def mad and hungry so you could imagine how manager should converse after making so many mistakes . He didnt sound sorry his tone was very arrogant. I left $20 bill and jsut walked out of that place I knew it wasnt worthed to even talk to individuals like this who just do not care about customer service, respect or even care what is been ordered and what is being served. I was very dissapointed and mad and swear not to go back there ever again. Pros: 5 Thumbs down Cons: They master in all cons more

Disappointment - food & service 10/18/2007

Bluntly is very bad place food is horrible and service is just horrible also. I will not go back again nor will I recommend it to anyone. There are many other restaurant with similar concept around that block . Cons: Requires food consultant more

probably the best Indian I've ever had 10/1/2007

This is a great find! The food is absolutely delicious, the portions are very generous, and the price is super reasonable. The atmosphere is good, and the servers are attentive and helpful. Definitely worth a visit, especially on the weekends (when they have great specials). Pros: great food, great prices, great service more

It's a joke 7/18/2007

Lousy food with lousy serivce . Waiters need serious trainning on how to serve, they spilled water on my gf while pouring i don not understand how? is the most easiest job. Anyways our order was late as we were only one at the restaurant waiting for our food which should have taken them 20 mins took about 45 mins. I wish owner good luck because he seriosly needs it. more
