We came for dinner, and we really enjoyed the food. Portions were hearthy. We ordered "mild" and found that spicy enough.

tip: Keep it simple and quick and order the special from the counter. 1 or 2 or more curries to choose from. Ample spices and you can ask for chutneys. Ample portions means you can almost make 2 meals from one. This is a come as you are casual place. Great for take out too. Chicken masala at medium was... More

I checked and double checked when ordering that the dish is not spicy. It is so incredibly spicy I had to throw it away. It caused a rash on my skin where it touched. While being overwhelmingly spicy, it's also oddly bland and undercooked. Just blah. I gave it a try twice already and I'm incredibly underwhelmed. Going to get... More

This is a great place for a quick lunch if you choose the pre-prepared curries. Chai is very good. We like the chicken curry, okra curry. Naan is kind of too oily when they bring it out. Even if there is a line, it moves fast so don't walk away if you see one. Prices are reasonable for this family-owned... More

I have never in my life had Indian food Ever! and I was a bit sceptical but oh and wow the tikka masala was more than I bargained for. I love this place.

Called in an order and picked it up, it was ready fast, and still hot when I got it back to my hotel. I had the Dal Makhani and garlic naan, all very good, including the rice.

A friend from Alaska who visits Boulder often introduced me to this place in a strip mall off Arapahoe, and I'm glad he did. Tiffins is unpretentious, but the food was freshly made and flavorful--though it tends to be hot. We shared three dishes: the Saag Paneer was the best I remember having anywhere, made with fresh spinach and with... More

Hate to say anything bad, but this was really pretty bad. The food is in steamers and you tell the person behind the counter what you want. The food looked old,not fresh, and unappealing. It tasted less than mediocre. Nothing tasted fresh. The lady behind the counter was grumpy, and the did not bring out the naan bread i ordered.

Walk up to order. Good selection of curries and lunch special daily. Tasty. Be aware that if you ask for "spicy" it will be the hottest you have ever encountered outside southern India!
