This place probably has one of the most flavorful chicken tikka masalas that I've had. So we usually go here and order vegetable samosas, chicken tikka masala which comes with rice and a plain naan, then we add on an onion naan. Everything

Tiffin is extremely delicious and affordable! Amazing lunch buffet (I think about $7.50)
I love a bunch of Indian restaurants in that area, but after a while I found myself going to Madras Mahal for the yummy food and going to Chennai Garden for their much better badam halwa for desert. When I went to Tiffin Wallah for the first time I got to have amazing food+ amazing desert under one roof! No more having to go restaurant hopping to have the best Indian meal!

Cons: the lassi's here are too sweet

I've had a really hard time finding good kosher Indian food, but this has been by far the best. The samosa was one of the best I've had, and the Alu Gobi was to die for. The mango shake was also really good and a great accompaniment.

I was really impressed by this place. The dishes were amazing and the restaurant treated us well. Best of all was the cheap food that was big enough to share!

went for lunch this week and was very happy with the quality of the food, especially for such a low price (we didn't realize it was buffet only at lunch). however, the rudeness of the host dampened an otherwise good experience - we were asked to leave within a few short minutes of finishing our food - neither of us went up for seconds & we occupied the table for 28 minutes total (! checked my watch after in disbelief). even friendly attempts to ask to be allowed to digest the meal for 5 minutes while seated proved to be in vain. perhaps charging a few more dollars & letting the customer actually feel welcome would alleviate some of his attitude?

My boyfriend is Indian, and I've accompanied him back to India, so I've had plenty of Indian food. This was by far the blandest we've tasted. However, we both ordered Gujarati dishes at Tiffin Wallah, and we noticed that the menu's emphasis was South Indian, so we're willing to give this place one more shot. However, the Gujarati thali and uthiyu curry we ordered were completely flavorless. There was not even any butter in my curry, despite the menu's promise. Come on, at least give me a splash of ghee, or some cumin or coriander seeds. The meal's only bright spot were the aloo pakoras. Please avoid North Indian food at this place--you won't be sorry.

This is the 2nd time I have eaten at Tiffin Wallah and the food has been excellent. Nicely prepared vegetarian dishes that are not greasy at all. Food is served on lovely dishes. Waiter made suggestions that were terrific. Very clean and contemporary feel to the restaurant. Service was professional and attentive. Great value.

Is one thing when server is rude which you probably will cope with that if you are really hungry & food is good. As I was seated after straight 15 mins waiting by the door like a fool not like this place was packed that they could not acknowledge 6 ft brown guy last sat night. I had to catch a show so I was in rush so I clearly informed the host who looked like he didnt give R*ts A**.Waiter came with annoyed face didnt event fill me any water or ask for some drink. Straight for order since I was in rush I didnt care placed an order for Mysore Masal dosa specifically asked to make it spicy & cripy I do not like soft dos & again asked him to make it ASAp. Is now 20mins since I ordered & I still do not have my food. So my hungry stomach is very upset and is taking over my temper ....I am trying to get my servers attention he is completely ignored me.So after 5 mins my Dosa shows up Yeah finally. Forgeting everything I touched my dosa as I am crabbing a piece of my delayed dosa which happend to be soft like a cotton . Now I am def mad and hungry so you could imagine how manager should converse after making so many mistakes . He didnt sound sorry his tone was very arrogant. I left $20 bill and jsut walked out of that place I knew it wasnt worthed to even talk to individuals like this who just do not care about customer service, respect or even care what is been ordered and what is being served. I was very dissapointed and mad and swear not to go back there ever again.

This is a great find! The food is absolutely delicious, the portions are very generous, and the price is super reasonable. The atmosphere is good, and the servers are attentive and helpful. Definitely worth a visit, especially on the weekends (when they have great specials).

Lousy food with lousy serivce . Waiters need serious trainning on how to serve, they spilled water on my gf while pouring i don not understand how? is the most easiest job. Anyways our order was late as we were only one at the restaurant waiting for our food which should have taken them 20 mins took about 45 mins. I wish owner good luck because he seriosly needs it.

This new Indian restaurant in Curry Hill is such a find! Having eaten a lot of Indian food, I have to say that Tiffin Wallah is among the best. Their food is so yummy and healthy. You can totally tell that the food and the ingredient are very fresh. The quantity is ... a lot. The price is very very reasonable. I have never been to the lunch buffet which is only $6, but the dinner entrees and appetizers are inexpensive for such great quality. The restaurant is chic, very clean and well-decorated (unlike a lot of Indian restaurants in Curry Hill that normally don't focus on decoration or cleanliness). Their "Bhel Puri" (appetizer - puffed rice, crispy noodle, onion and tomato in tamarind sauce) is the best so far I have tried in NYC. For main course, I love their "Sukhi Bhaji" (stir fried potato with hot pepper onion and nuts), Alu Gobi (stir fried potato and cauliflower), Chana Masala (Chickpea Masala Curry), Bhindi Masala (Oka Masala Curry).

I checked this little place out yesterday after reading about it here and reviews on menupages. I was not disappointed. The food is quite good, and ambience nice as well. The staff was very friendly and even gave me some mango lassi to sip while my food was getting ready (I had a pick-up). I highly recommend this place. I had 2 paneer dishes, both of them very tasty. And for the prices - amazing!! I cannot believe that the food was so good at that price. Two paneer entrees, 1 bhel puri (appetizer), and 1 order of rotis cost $23. The entrees came with rice, and 1 order was basically 2 rotis. I will definitely go back, especially since its so close to my workplace.
