This was my second time at Tiffin Bistro and it certainly will not be my last. I have had many excellent take out/deliveries from the other Tiffin locations, but it is always nice to have a well-prepared meal in their cozy bistro close to Center City. My dinner companion was as impressed as I. The wait staff is friendly, knowledgeable and attentive without being intrusive. Go to Tiffin Bistro! You will love it!
From start to finish both the service and food was outstanding. We were warmly greeted, given our choice of seating, and treated to a wonderful meal. Each course of the meal was excellently prepared in a generous portion. The Cauliflower Bezule appetizer appeared to be a hit because myself and two other tables ordered it and the Aloo Papri Chaat was another great appetizer. The Lamb Chettinad was well cooked, the meat tender, and very flavourful. The Chicken Korma was served with white meat; where other places use dark and it, too, was well cooked. Too stuffed for dessert, but when tasted at home, each was a delight.
My husband and I were very pleased with the quality of the food and service at Tiffin Bistro on Federal Street. The waiter was extremely pleasant and helpful and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The wine was also very good. We will return, and highly recommend Tiffin to others.
Not worth the time. Service is ridiculously slow, and the food was just ok. Don't bother.
Always tasty and delectible, great ambiance, definitely worth it
Six of us had a great dinner. Spices were subtle and not overwhelming. Menu variety was more than adequate and portion sizes just perfect.
Loved the sauces! Got a shrimp thing and a tilapia strip appetizer and coconut sauce "dumplings that looked like little vegetarian meatballs…It was great!
Amazingly, we were the only diners in the restaurant on a Wednesday evening. The ambiance is wonderful and tastefully done. However, the food was served lukewarm and significantly underseasoned -- just guessing, but we suspect the microwave was very much in use. This restaurant should have a chef and approach that lives up to its potential. Sadly, our experience suggests they've given up.
The food tends to take an extremely long time to come out, so expect to take your time when getting food. The food is great, but it takes a long time to come out.
food was excellent. waiter knowledgeable and friendly. went on a holiday so it wasn't crowded and it was early-5pm.
