I first visited Cafe Tiffin about a year ago. I stumbled upon it whilst scrolling through places that accepted tastecard in the Old St area.  Not only do they accept tastecard for 2 people during the week, but it is also BYOB! When restaurants offer these kind of deals I am often wary of the food - are the portions going to be tiny or is the tastecard going to limit us to certain dishes - but with Cafe Tiffin this is absolutely not the case.

Their food is simply fantastic. I now regularly visit Cafe Tiffin and it is definitely my Indian of choice in London. My favourite dish is the Badami Chicken Tikka Masala, which is a deliciously sweet peanut butter dish, but I'd also recommend trying whatever their special of the day is. 

Tucked away in a quiet street, the staff are wonderful and friendly - they have also recently renovated, so it feels smart, homely and 100% an enjoyable place to have a yummy curry.

Visited this place for the first time last week, it's a small place hidden away on a quite side road with only a few tables. First impressions of the place were that it's cute and simple looking nothing too fancy, which was nice. Was greeted by the friendly staff upon arriving (who are all brothers as it's a family fun restaurant) and happily seated us where ever we chose!!, note that they don't have a licence to sell alcohol which was not a problem as they kindly directed me to the local tesco and waitross which was less then a minute away!! For us to bring our own, also they don't charge for corkage which was a plus. The most imported thing that took my breath away was the food, the haryali massala and murgi shashlic bhuna was literally to die for, every single dish we ordered tasted amazing individually. We also tried a the daily special which was absolutely mouthwatering and complete different from any other place we had before. When ever I'm local I will be sure to pop in to my new favorite restaurant.
