“Delicious and inexpensive vegitarian Indian”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

Just had a great lunch at Tiffin Wallah. I passed on the all you can eat buffet lunch (of which most of the patrons were partaking) and ordered Palak Paneer from the menu and requested it be prepared spicy. It was fantastic - freshly prepared so the spinach still had a bit of crunch to it (as opposed to the all to frequent over cooked spinach in Palak Paneer that has been sitting in a steam tray too long). Just the right amount of spice (I love spicy), and the sauce was not too heavily creamy.

“Terrible Service, Good Food”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

Food was good very authentic. But the service from the servers was absolutely terrible. One server brought lassi to us as order , he kept it so hard on the table that some spilt on my face. Same server was moving chairs behind me and he hit my head with the chair and didnt even apologise. We had to wait forever for our aloo chat. Bill never came to us, we had to go to the counter to pay. pan shop right outside the restaurant is ann added advantage ofgoing there. I wont go there again and will recommend to people who dont care about service.

The veggie lunch buffet is a great deal and I always stop at Tiffin when I'm in the city. The food is delicious and the staff very friendly.
