takeaway overall the food was good. Ordered a couple of curries and the meat was tender, however the lamb in the Grill Bhuna was very tough and hard to chew.

Amazing food! Unbeatable service! One of the best restaurants in London. It's a pearl hidden in the middle of Clerkenwell, small cozy restaurant, reservation is recommended. They don't service alcohols, but you are allowed to bring your own bottle of wine. How great is that!!...More

There are people who say that the best Indian food in the world can be found in London. Certainly some of the best. Cafe Tiffin is not a headliner. The atmosphere is pleasant but relatively simple. However, the food is outstanding. Prices are extremely reasonable....More
