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!

The dosa and lamb korma and dal were delicious. The chicken pieces were huge and overdone in the masala. The sambar tasted like the tamarind was missing. The rice was plain basmati, no aromatics added. The eggplant was tasteless. Overall ok, with some highs and some just passable dishes.

This is one of my fav place for a quick lunch in Boulder. Food is delicious, quick and not costly. They also deliver the food, plus if you are in hurry, order on phone and pick it up. My favorite dish is saag paneer.

As others have said, this is a partial self sservice place. Like Panera, you place your order and then they bring it the table. I have samosa, chicken vindaloo and Naan. The chicken was the best I have had. My partner, who is from India, took me there and says it is the best place he has found in Boulder.... More

I had the masala Dosha on the recommendation of a friend. It was huge and delicious! There are curries offered at differing prices for lunch until 2:30. The restaurant is clean and no frills. I recommend.

I visited the Tiffin and was very sick the following day. My wife and daughter both became ill so it was horrible. I ordered the lamb saag and the chicken curry and Gulab Jamoon dessert. I called the store and spoke to the owner; who confirmed the food, was a day old and the Gulab Jamoon was seven days old.... More
