Jewel in the crown

A wonderful restaurant featuring cuisine from Southern India. We used to frequent it and its sister restaurant Udupi Palace, which unfortunately closed. This is one of the few great eating places in Prince Georges county!

Really Tifin is best for buffet and carry out. This is a good experience for my work lunch outings because I can get my co-workers a good food experience without breaking the bank.

I haven't been in a while because my 'selective eater' child wouldn't have appreciated it. Just went and she can't wait to get back for the Chicken Tikka Masala, naan and Gulab Jamun for dessert (Indian donuts!!). The food is as good as ever - fresh tasting. Great staff, very attentive.

We indulged a tasty dining experience on a cold, rainy night. Our favorites last night included the chili fish, Bengal curry fish, shrimp curry. The spicy chai and mango lassi were really good too. Each time we've dined here, the staff has never disappointed, friendly and accommodating. Be sure to visit the next time you're in the area.

We used to be frequent customers of nearby Udupi Palace, until they closed a few years ago. Luckily, some of the dishes we used to enjoyed are now offered at Tiffin's (with the same owner, the two restaurants actually merged). So there are still many excellent Dosai (my partner chose the Masala Dosai, stuffed with potatoes) to choose from, and... More

Last week, I had such an urge for Indian food and I just happened to be in the area. I saw it had some very good reviews, so I decided to wait the 20 minutes until they opened. So glad I did! I tried many items from the buffet, including chicken kofta, palaak paneer and the tandoori chicken. It was... More

We are so fortunate to have Tiffin right down the road from us. Having sampled Indian food in dozens of US and foreign cities, Tiffin holds its own with really bold flavors. We love the Chicken Tika Masala (we ask for it spicey) and their wheat Paratha bread. All meals come with their signature coriander sauce and their Raita, which... More

I have eaten here for 7 years now and this place has been consistently good. The staff is very friendly.. and always make effort to make me comfortable. I like their kebabs and goat biriyani the best and always order them when I go for dinner. They know my choices well by now. Have treated family and friends here many... More

The restaurant is not so good. Especially they boast as Udipi being part of the Tiffin restaurant. I was really disappointed that the food was average and they basically killed a fine restaurant Udipi by combining with them. Do not go to this restaurant.
