We were there only a week
We were there only a week into their opening. There were very few people in the restaurant, but the outside tables were full. As is the case with Tiffin, the food was excellent. This is definitely a neighborhood and not expensive. They do not yet have their liquor license, weren't able to produce a glass of iced tea, but these are minor flaws that will be corrected in a short time.

My friend and I noticed that tiffin bistro opened up in south philly so we wanted to see if it was just as good as the tiffin on Girard.
We shared the vegetable samosa and the lamb & chicken kebab as starters, then we had the chicken tikki masala and lamb korma for entrees. Everything was fantastic and the staff was very knowledgeable and attentive. Great value as the food was fresh and delicious yet we only ended up spending about forty dollars (twenty each).
We'll be back soon!

Tiffin Bistro is a GREAT addition to the neighborhood. I have dined at Tashan (their upscale Indian restaurant - which was fantastic but a more formal experience) but never at one of the Tiffin take-outs. Then, to see that their Bistro was opening in our neighborhood was pretty exciting. We waited a week and went last Saturday. It was everything we had hoped for: creative indian cuisine served in a cozy, comfortable space. We loved every minute.

Not traditional Indian
And not quite as good as the original. Still worth a trip, absolutely. Thoroughly enjoyed, and it is great to have an option for Indian in East Passyunk/Passyunk Square.

Our go-to Indian
We have been fans of Tiffin and Tashan for years, so Tiffin Bistro was a welcome addition to our neighborhood. The food has many of our favorites from Tiffin with wonderful additions showing that the menu was carefully planned.
The staff is attentive, but not overbearing. Understanding that many people are new to Indian cuisine, they are happy to explain the menu or dishes as needed.
The restaurant has a great vibe - perfect for casual date night or a girls' night. This has quickly become one of our regular spots!

We were concerned about spice level and degree of heat based on a previous review, but gave it a try anyways. We were glad we did! The food was amazing. The eggplant chaat had just the perfect mix of flavors. The saag paneer was great too! The service was excellent. We couldn't have asked for a better experience.

great neighborhood addition
Food is a bit more elaborate than the standard Tiffin menu! Loved the cauliflower app.

Tiffin Bistro is a terrific addition to the neighborhood. On Monday evening, we had a group of six there and it could not have been better. This is middle-of-the-road Indian cuisine, prepared thoughtfully. All the standards are here like Chicken Tikka Masala and they are done so well. The interconnected rooms are pleasant and the noise level is great. Our group was able to converse easily, even with two other big groups in the place. Tiffin Bistro is a big step down from Tashan but a big step up from the more take-out oriented Tiffins. Quite simply, I love having them in the neighborhood.

Goumet food at reasonable prices
The food we had was superb. Cauliflower and eggplant appetizers followed by main dishes of scallops, lamb, and chicken were plentiful and delicious in the subtlety and variety of their seasoning. The chocolate desert was wicked, and should be approached with caution. The service was excellent, the dishes and silverware pleasant to use. The prices are moderate. The one thing missing was a wine and beer list. But it is easy, and cheaper, to BYOB. The setting is clean and unpretentious, the seats re comfortable, the tables roomy. We plan to try everything on the menu! We know our friends will enjoy Tiffin.

Nom Nom naan
We had a wonderful time celebrating my birthday. Our server was attentive and friendly. The food service was timed well. The food was authentic and cooked well. Loved the interior design and the intimacy it created.

Great for a night out!
My friend and I recently dined at Tiffin. The food was delicious and our server was extremely pleasant. They now have their liqour license, and the bar looks great! I will definitely be back.
