Located in a little strip mall, this Indian restaurant is on the very "basic" scale. You order at the counter and a glass of water is placed on your table - that is all the service you can expect. The chicken tika masala was MUCH spicier than I like. When I asked at the counter if I could have it... More

I don't know if I just wasn't paying attention, but I didn't notice any indication of how much anything cost until we were paying for it. The form is you order at the register, get your own drinks, then take a seat, and they bring your food. My dining partner was bit put off by the cc chit they gave... More

My boyfriend and I love tifins, we end up going at least once every two weeks. The chicken or paneer masala is really delish. Staff is really friendly. Its great for take out but eating there is also nice. One serving is enough for two people which makes it nice for dates. This is probably my favorite place to eat... More

Tiffins has a basic/down to earth atmosphere, but the food is outstanding! The only table service is a glass of water set on the table. The chai is tasty. I love the chicken masala. Dosa comes with soup. Several choices of naan which is authentic. Great food/excellent value.

We came for dinner, and we really enjoyed the food. Portions were hearthy. We ordered "mild" and found that spicy enough.

tip: Keep it simple and quick and order the special from the counter. 1 or 2 or more curries to choose from. Ample spices and you can ask for chutneys. Ample portions means you can almost make 2 meals from one. This is a come as you are casual place. Great for take out too. Chicken masala at medium was... More

I checked and double checked when ordering that the dish is not spicy. It is so incredibly spicy I had to throw it away. It caused a rash on my skin where it touched. While being overwhelmingly spicy, it's also oddly bland and undercooked. Just blah. I gave it a try twice already and I'm incredibly underwhelmed. Going to get... More

This is a great place for a quick lunch if you choose the pre-prepared curries. Chai is very good. We like the chicken curry, okra curry. Naan is kind of too oily when they bring it out. Even if there is a line, it moves fast so don't walk away if you see one. Prices are reasonable for this family-owned... More

I have never in my life had Indian food Ever! and I was a bit sceptical but oh and wow the tikka masala was more than I bargained for. I love this place.
