As a transplant from the Midwest, who welcomed the culinary diversity of New York, I was rather disappointed by the Indian food options in Manhattan. Tiffin Wallah was therefore a great surprise! Excellent food, where the quality of the ingredients isn't masked by obnoxious seasoning. The curries are delicious, and I highly recommend any of the tiffins (especially the samosa chat and the pakora!).

Wow, I've been here many times for lunch (awesome buffet, super cheap) but went here for dinner for the first time on Friday night. Like lunch, the food is great, the prices are unbelievably low, and the only thing that is missing it on the spot service. It's not that their service is bad, it just isn't always at your beckon call. This is my favorite spot in NYC - and it is actually frequented by Indians (need I say more?).

I've been a loyalist to another Indian restaurant for many years. I tried Tiffin Wallah last night. I am about to order in again as I am craving, CRAVING I tell you, there food. It was delicious, delicately prepared, amazingly un-oily. I am thrilled beyond belief. Thanks to menu pages and other peer reviews for point me to Tiffin Wallah.

I grew up in South Asia so can be quite critical of Indian food in the city. This place is AMAZING. Great flavors. I have never tried a bad/mediocre dish at tiffin wallah. I have eaten at plenty of Indian places in the city and this is the best place if you want a low-key restaurant. Try the chaats. They are great. I also recommend the Masala dosa. The Samosas are ok. Also, the lunch buffet offers great value in a recession.

Until I discovered this place, I had found a few decent Indian restaurants in the city, but none that came close to the quality of a decent Indian restaurant in London. This changed everything. It is up there with the best in London - and I am a hard sell! I should qualify my assessment by saying that whereas I am not a vegetarian, my strong preference in Indian food is South Indian veggie. Everything I have eaten here has been superb. The samosas and dosas are musts and te soups delicious. And the prices? Apart from the thalis, which are complete meals, I don't think anything on the menu is outside of the $4-9 range. Go with a few people and share.... and enjoy!

In a sea of many vegetarian Indian restaurants in Murry Hill, this one is the top. The lunch buffet and weekend specials are both huge values. The sag paneer is fresh and not overly saucy, unlike another I have had.

Tiffin Wallah is one of my favorite Indian Restaurants in the city. The food is always fresh and I have always had really consistently good food. The lunch buffet is high quality. Sure, they don't have millions of things, and no, they don't have lamb and chicken, but HELLO! It is a vegetarian restaurant!!! get with the program! BTW, I'm not a vegetarian, I love meat. But I certainly can live without it when I am eating at Tiffin Wallah.
