“Standards have slipped drastically”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2013 via mobile

The Rutland Curry Club first visited Tiffin back in 2009, our members were so impressed at the time that it came very close to winning our Curry House of the Year (CHOTY) award.

However on return we were very disappointed, the food was average at best, quite a few of us had the King Prawn Tawas one of the restaurant's signature dishes, however the prawns were very bland and not particularly enjoyable.

When you take a group of 10 to a restaurant you expect the place to make a bit of effort to make you feel at home, unfortunately there was none of that, very cold service, we weren't even greeted out of the restaurant, despite spending almost £500.

The food is vastly overpriced, £50 a head would be easier to take if you'd just had an amazing meal, but not when you get something you could have picked up from anywhere. The 10% service charge that they automatically added is very cheeky. As a club we always believe in tipping if it's deserved. A lot of people would probably not have noticed and would tip on top of that.

Overall, no chance of winning the BOB CHOTY award and I wouldn't go back or recommend this to anyone.

“Curry at it's best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013

I have been dining here for 25 years and only once have I been disappointed by a dish. Their "sizzling starters" are a must. Tandoori king prawns and lots of others. Very friendly service and relaxed atmosphere. Booking is essential if Leicester Tigers are paying at home. Don't be surprised to see some of he players in there. Parking can be a problem but its all worth the effort. It's my 5 year old son's curry house of choice!

“Pricey”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2013

Food is good - but nothing special and expensive and not as much choice as some - especially starters. There are better restaurants in Leicester. The service was OK, but the restaurant was busy and very noisy.

“Yuk!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2013 via mobile

All I can say is the mushroom dish we ordered smelt of dirty socks!!

For god sake it's Leicester, if that's the best you can do, you might as well close up the tandoori restaurant, and sell up to Pizza Hut!
