We ordered naan which came with three dipping sauces. If you like bread then order naan. I ordered two appetizers which were the Aloo Tiki and Lasooni Tiki (called Lasooni Tika as an entree). The Aloo was an incredibly flavorful fried potato-cake while the Lasooni was three basic chicken pieces. Rice did not come with the appetizers. Honestly I could... More

My wife and I have gotten take-out from the South Philly Tiffin several times. This review really only covers their delivery and take-out, not sitting in the restaurant. The dishes are fine. You can specify the heat level of your main course which is good for someone who likes spicy food the way I do. The mainstays like butter chicken,... More

Here for dinner with my wife and youngest son who lives in Philadelphia. We enjoy Indian food, the son lived there for two years, post college and we have visited there twice. So we do understand a thing our two about the cuisine. I thoroughly enjoyed everything we ordered, from appetizer to dessert. The service was a tad on the... More

Great place to go. Service is a bit slow, BUT the food is worth waiting for. The lamb was excellent and the drinks were very good. If you enjoy bourbon try the Harris!! It's summery, but good all year round.

I was in Philadelphia Superbowl Sunday and the thought of sitting in my hotel room to watch the game made me get in a cab just to go somewhere. I had brunch at a place called Tashan and they suggested I go here to watch the game and I am glad I did. I had a fresh margarita when I... More

The food was very good but different than other Indian restaurants than we have been to. The food and atmosphere had almost an Italian quality and feel. My partner had a tilapia dish that came in a red tomato sauce. I have never seen anything like it in any other Indian restaurant. The lighting was kind of dark and the... More

We had a vacation apartment not too far from this restaurant, we could not have chosen better! They were fairly busy in early evening, but brought drinks quickly and Naan bread to stave off the hunger pangs! This was one excellent meal, beautifully cooked and presented with generous portions. The mango lassy was to die for. Prices were good, and... More
