We were all excited when TIffin opened a branch in Mt. Airy, and in truth it has been one of our go-to takeout places, especially when we have a mixed-vegetarian/omnivore crowd to please. We rarely eat in at the restaurant, which has limited seating space. A few pointers: the online menu is confusing, even for someone who has ordered from Tiffin dozens (literally) of times. You need to navigate through various pages to make sure you have the regular menu and the Mt. Airy location. The menu items are hard to locate-- they could really use a web-design. The food is quite expensive (there are better, cheaper Indian restaurants in the suburbs, but Tiffin is so convenient. )They do not stay open late. Twice I called around 9 PM to order take-out and was told in a surly way that I was calling too late. It also pays to check your order before driving away-- we have on more than one occasion found that the naan (that we'd paid for) was missing from the other. We drove back to get it.

We love Indian food and Tiffen is good. Restaurant on Girard is convenient, but short on ambiance, but has other suburban locations and also you can pick up and even better, Tiffen delivers.

Tiffin in Mt. Airy does take out and has a small seating area, around 10 tables. The food here is always very good, try their special of the month because its always good. The naan stuffed with dried fruit and nuts is fantastic. Street parking only, and in Mt. Airy can be a challenge. I've heard good things about the Elkins Park location they now have as well.

Second time I've been there - insisted we go on this trip to Philly with my husband as he also loves Indian food. Yes, it's in a scary neighbourhood, definitely decayed urban and not even on the cusp of being renewed but you have no trouble parking close to restaurant. We were a party of 6 and were served quickly - food is just great.

I feel compelled to write as this is the 2nd time that Tiffin has made a mistake and left a key item out of our order. (This is the Elkins Park location). Both times they said that they would "make it up to us the next time" but never did after the 1st mistake. The food is passable, but the service is poor. The raita is thin and watery and the daal is somewhat tastless. I will not be ordering Indian food from them again. There are too many other wonderful choices in the Philly area.
