A group of us normally goes to Woodlands for lunch buffet but decided to give Tiffin's a try since it's practically next door. Overall we had a very good experience. The selection was the standard 3 or 4 veggie dishes, a couple of chicken dishes and a goat curry. None of the dishes that I tried was adequately spicy. Starters... More

Reading the other recent reviews of this restaurant I noticed that almost nobody speaks about the South Indian dishes on the menu. My advice to you is be more adventurous! Don't always order the same old tandoori, butter chicken, korma, etc. Try the dosai, idli, utthapam, and other specialities. I had a Mysore masala dosa last night and it was... More

Very nice interior. Clean. Fast, friendly service. Food is good. Butter Chicken is a little different from what we are used to;not bad but different. Everything else is good.

I like Tiffin when I am in the mood for non-veg Indian. Their tandoori chicken is scrumptious. Overall the food is great here, I do prefer some of the other local places, as the food is a bit milder. Some of the dishes run a little on the hot side, so be sure to ask the server if you are... More

Went here for weekend buffet lunch. I think food could use more indian spices. I felt the food was underhanded in indian flavors. Weekend buffet was $15 but wasn't there anything special for higher weekend prices. Staff here was little too attentive. Keep filling my glass of water after every sip. Even over filled it and spilled on the table.... More

I've never eaten there so can't attest to their service, but during take out the people are always very nice. Food is very good, and they always give plenty of rice.

Tiffin's been around for years, serving tasty, basic Indian food (mostly but not entirely Northern Indian). For anyone who doesn't know, a "tiffin" is a stacked, nested set of metal containers in which sub-continental workers carry their lunches to the workplace. I've mostly gone to Tiffin for dinner, but their lunch was a different experience. Everything was about the buffet,... More

Tiffin is yummy and has good service. They're just a little pricier than I'd like. The standards are good - chicken tikka masala, chaana masala, naan.
