I only go during busy hours and always find the food fresh and hot. The value is good for the type of food that it is. Very filling and usually can make a good 2 meals from one. And, can make it very healthy, at...least compared to other Indian foods.More

First, this isn't a sit-down and order from the menu Indian restaurant, it's more counter-service and choose x from y choices. That said, Tikkaway scored highly for what it is. Really, everything was great. The staff were wonderfully friendly and helpful. The gentleman serving me...offered up samples without prompting and made several good suggestions. I had a rice bowl with stuff. Lots of stuff. Kidney beans, potatoes, various veggies, some cabbage, and, oh yes, the hot peppers and the vindaloo sauce. Yummy! Inside everything was clean and light, and with a really nice atmosphere. The environment would likely be a little happier if they didn't serve the eat-in meals in styrofoam containers and for that, we docked a point leaving the score as eleven out of ten (11/10) - highly recommended.More

Set in the style of burrito chains (start at one end building the bowl or wrap of your choice), Tikkaway offers fresh, delicious tasting Indian cuisine. Vegans, vegetarians and meat eaters can select among the delicious choices of components and sauces that combine to make...a delicious meal. Additional options include samosas, soup, lentil chips, chai, and desserts. My only complaint is that there are only two locations: Boston and New Haven ! I need a location in NJ!More

Fantastic place for a quick meal, particularly for vegetarians/vegans. Be mindful when ordering, their peppers are actually spicy:)

So it sounded great, Subway idea with Indian food. The problem is I know a bit about Indian food (including there is not really any such thing - but I digress) and this just was not very good. The sauces were bitter as if they...had come prepackaged. The price was reasonable. Some people probably love this but I will be going to a propert restaurant next time I want this style of food.More

My son and I took the free Hartford Line train from Union Station Springfield to Union Station New Haven. Celebrating Mother's Day on Father's Day cuz I'm a single mom. We wanted something inexpensive, healthy and filling. This place filled the bill! Excellent service, great...choices, everything looked wonderful and tasted great too! We both had a rice-based bowl and got our next day's lunches out of the order. Iced coffee rounded out the delicious experience. Wish there was one closer to us! I would assume that lunch and dinner are about the same choices. Not sure if they have breakfast. Would like to try samosas if we ever went again. I think some of the food and sauces were available to sample if you didn't know what was what. BUT we did because Indian food is one of our favorite treats. YUMMY YUMMY YUMMY food!!More

If Chipotle and India had a baby, this is what it would be. Tikkaway is an extremely tasty Indian restaurant where you can build your meal just as you would at a place like Chipotle. The service was fast, the prices were very good, and...the food was delicious! If you are looking for a quick and tasty bite in New Haven, this place is definitely worth a visit!More
