It takes them 2 hours to deliver food and when it comes late and cold they are unsympathetic. They are very rude and have very poor customer service. They do not understand how to treat people. Do not order they are awful and don't deserve

I'm an Indian who loves spicy food and I have been searching for the best Indian food in the city. Sadly, 90% are oily Americanized North Indian buffets. Tiffin, on the other hand is VERY close to what I'm looking for.

First of all, they deliver, to almost anywhere. You won't get the cute little metal tiffins you get in India, but plastic tubs aren't so bad. I've never had it delivered, so I'm not sure about any delivery issues. I eat in the restaurant which is fairly small. If you sit on the first floor you can see the kitchen so you know they're actually making their food. My dishes of choice are garlic naan, Lamb Vindaloo and Chicken Tikka Masala. I have never been to a place that made vindaloo even close to being right, let alone this spicy. It is extremely spicy, too much for me sometimes, so I wonder how non-spice eaters handle it. The CTM is nice and creamy, although since it tastes so good it's probably really bad for me with all the cream. But it's worth it once in a while. The servings are big enough that I have to take some home, which is always a good thing. The only mistake I made was ordering Kulfi once. They try to be fancier around dinner time and charged me way too much for frozen condensed milk and pistachios. Though I imagine if I ordered that at a place like Bindi it'd be 2x as much.

This places is a tad pricey for most people who are used to cheap Indian food, but it tastes much better than most of those places. The food can definitely be spicy, so I'm not sure what people are talking about with "no flavor."

Pros: big portions, south indian choices, subsitutions

Cons: not a great neighborhood

Actually, Tiffin may be the best Indian food I've ever had. The prices are a bit higher 10-12 per dish, but it's worth it. I've never had a bad dish here or even one that just tastes average. They don't miss and the flavors are full and developed.

The place to go for reasonable Indian food. Dining is on second floor in this converted house. Take out is in first floor. Staff is pleasant, and food is wonderful. Won't break the bank. Mango lassies!!

The Indian food scene in Philadelphia is not so great but Tiffin has pretty good take-out. The store front is cheesy with its IKEA tables and chairs.
