The other night in Newtown Square, a family came to dine with their two young kids. They had been talking and laughing but after a while we noticed it had gotten pretty quiet at their table. When we glanced over we could see that they were so busy scooping and eating that all conversation had ceased!
Not wanting to interrupt such a peaceful scene, we waited a bit before checking on them. When we asked if they were enjoying their meal they all said in unison “it’s delicious!” Mom spoke up and said “I wasn’t sure about coming here because my daughter and I didn’t think we could eat spicy food, but you made it just right and we loved it!” Dad just laughed and said “I was shocked when she suggested it. I’ve eaten here many times so I was glad to bring the whole gang.”
We love hearing stories like this. When tiffin first started we revolutionized the accessibility of Indian food. We did it again with our delicious recipes and by offering our diners a choice of spice level. We wanted to include everyone! What is your favorite dish? There are so many delicious favorites to choose from we thought we would break down the most popular of all the Indian inspired dishes we serve.
Reminiscent of a backyard barbecue no matter what time of year. Chicken legs and thighs are marinated in yogurt and spices before roasting in a tandoor, a cylindrical clay oven, at 800° to allow the outside to caramelize and give the tender meat an explosion of flavor. Tandoori chicken originated from the Indian subcontinent and is popular in many other parts of the world.
An amazing black lentil and tomato concoction that will leave you satisfied even without the naan. But who would want to do that? Dal Makhani is a popular dish from the Punjab region of the Indian subcontinent. The primary ingredients are whole black lentil, red kidney beans, butter & cream which gives this entrée it's richness.
Number 8 on our list is a traditional curry rich with onion, cashew and tomato and chunks of tender chicken breast but may consisting of meat or vegetables braised with yogurt or cream, water or stock, and spices to produce a thick sauce or glaze. Tiffin's Curry Pots allows you choose from 5 types of protein for your Korma: chicken, lamb, vegetable, shrimp & salmon.
Translating roughly into “red lamb,” this dish gets its flavor from cardamom, cumin and cloves. Roganjosh is of of Persian or Kashmiri origin. It is one of the signature recipes of Kashmiri cuisine.
Simple and hearty yellow lentils slow fired with spices make this a complete meal or a wonderful addition to another dish Dal Tadka is served as restaurant style by pouring hot tadka or tempering made with oil, ghee, garlic and red chili powder. It is often served hot with roti, paratha, jeera rice or steamed rice, onions, pickle and pappadum but it is also good by itself.
Baingan means eggplant! This traditional Punjabi dish combines eggplant, tomato and onion into a delicious stew. Baingan bharta, part of the national cuisines of India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh, originated in the Punjab region and bears a resemblance to baba ghanoush and mirza ghassemi.
Tender morsels of chicken in an intoxicatingly smooth tomato, onion (and yes, butter!) gravy. The tomato gives the sauce it’s richness and spices like cardamom give it depth.
Butter chicken or murgh makhani is said to have been created by the three partners, Kundan Lal Jaggi, Kundan Lal Gujral and Thakur Dass in their restaurant in Delhi in the 1950s The dish was made "By Chance" by mixing the leftover chicken in a tomato gravy, rich in butter and cream.
Chana means chickpea! Not only are these golden nuggets flavorful they are packed with protein, fiber and nutrients and are low in fat and calories. In this dish chickpeas are cooked together with onions, tomato and spices to create a satisfying and delicious stew. Chana masala, also known as chole masala can be made with Kala Chana, a chickpea with twice the diameter of typical chickpeas & a stronger flavor and firmer texture
That’s spinach you say? Yes, in its most delicious form. Creamy and dotted with chunks of paneer make it the vegetarian delight. Saag Paneer, sometimes called saagwala, may be eaten with bread such as roti or naan, or rice. Saag Paneer can also be made with other greens such as mustard leaves, finely chopped broccoli, along with added spices.
By far our number one seller. Creamy, robust tomato gravy and tender chunks of roasted chicken. Eat it over basmati rice or scoop it up with a wedge of hot bread until there’s naan left!
There are multiple claims to its place of origin, including the Punjab region of the Indian subcontinent or Glasgow in Scotland. It is among the United Kingdom's most popular dishes, leading a government minister, Robin Cook, to claim in 2001 that it was "a true British national dish".
A great place for Indian food. The quality and services provided are great. For the quantity of food they give you can't beat the prices
Never fails to deliver great food at very reasonable prices. BYOB also saves alot. The paneer korma with roti is a can't miss. Start off with any of the Chaat appetizers.
Tiffin was a good find. The place is very inviting and the decor is very ethnic. The beautifully carpentered wooden door frames that adorn the entrance is elegant. Because we were in a hurry, we did not get a chance to indulge in their buffet but we did order take-out and like everything! The biryani was great, absolutely better than your average Indian restaurant. Their chicken curry was pretty good too. I would certainly frequent this place!
I am not Indian but we went there to try out their buffet one day. It was $12 all you can eat. They have mango lassi and Indian chai tea.
Love this place for the food and the hospitality
I never knew there’s such good indian restaurants in East Hanover I used to go Edison every week for authentic Indian food. But glad I found tiffin
My kids also enjoyes a lot specially the buffet.
From outside you may not know there’s some restaurant which they need to work to many people to know specially who just moved to the city.
Best food for best price ,We were flying back to Orlando and randomly got to this restaurant while travelling for eating Nepali/Indian food and found this place one of the best Indian buffet we had been before. Started with Pani Puri Bhel , Bara/Vada ,Pakoda and then into Basmati Rice, Biryani Mattar Panir everything was awesome. Varieties of desserts Mango Lassi , Gulab Jamun ,Rice Pudding everything was awesome. My parents enjoyed food even better as lots of vegetarian options. We even took out samosas and ate on the flight back to Orlando. Will certainly go again to such a place.
We came here for the first time just passing by on the way to the mall. Small place without any extravagant sitting but menu is pretty good and the food is delicious and the staff was very polite too. Will come back
P.S. regular menu. Not a buffet selection (we came dinner time)
I’ve been going to this place for years. They never fail to prepare amazing food. It is consistently great - year after year. The biryanis is moth earring. And I have to mention the service by staff is very hospitable and accommodative.
Very aesthetic place with amazing food. I went on a Sunday. There was a lunch buffet for a very reasonable price and a lot of variety. The waiters were very friendly and they really are good people. I would totally go to this place again.
I just had some of the spiciest lamb vindaloo I've ever had here. It was almost too spicy to eat but too good not to.
We've had take out from here several times and always enjoyed the dishes we've tried. Tonight was the first time we dined in and were equally impressed with the service and the staff as well.
This was my first experience having Indian food and it was DELICIOUS!!! I'm not a big spice fan and everything I had was perfect! The buffet was awesome and perfect price!
