This is our favorite place on Uber eats. The food is better than average, and it all reheats well. Try the lamb biryani or the fish curry for something a little different.

Great Inidan luncheon buffet in a little shopping center outside the nation's capitol . Excellent poori and a revolving group of tasty dishes with tandoori chicken.

I went with co-workers to this restaurant for the lunch buffet at the price of $12.95. The wonderful aroma met me at the door. I skipped the two soup offerings and went directly to the rice and curried chicken, followed by spinach, cauliflower mix, naan, a rice and chicken mix with raisins, and a dish made from carrots (was supposed...

A group of us normally goes to Woodlands for lunch buffet but decided to give Tiffin's a try since it's practically next door. Overall we had a very good experience. The selection was the standard 3 or 4 veggie dishes, a couple of chicken dishes and a goat curry. None of the dishes that I tried was adequately spicy. Starters... More

Reading the other recent reviews of this restaurant I noticed that almost nobody speaks about the South Indian dishes on the menu. My advice to you is be more adventurous! Don't always order the same old tandoori, butter chicken, korma, etc. Try the dosai, idli, utthapam, and other specialities. I had a Mysore masala dosa last night and it was... More

Very nice interior. Clean. Fast, friendly service. Food is good. Butter Chicken is a little different from what we are used to;not bad but different. Everything else is good.

I like Tiffin when I am in the mood for non-veg Indian. Their tandoori chicken is scrumptious. Overall the food is great here, I do prefer some of the other local places, as the food is a bit milder. Some of the dishes run a little on the hot side, so be sure to ask the server if you are... More
