About Cafe Tiffin

London may have its fair share of curry houses, but there’s just something about Cafe Tiffin that sets it apart from the rest. Dishing out some of the city’s most wholesome South Asian specialities, Cafe Tiffin doesn’t mess around when it comes to quality. By taking advantage of time-honoured recipes and traditional cooking styles, the chefs at this Compton Street hotspot ensure that you’ll enjoy authentic Indian cuisine as it should be: fresh, unadulterated and nourishing. The chef’s recommendations at Cafe Tiffin include several classic dishes including handi gosht, seafood karai, paneer tikka masala and the house special, a medley of tandoori chicken, lamb tikka, chicken tikka and sheekh kebab all cooked up in a zesty medium sauce. An Islington favourite, Cafe Tiffin tends to get busy, especially during peak hours. Make sure to reserve ahead to avoid a queue.

Great food, BYOB policy so a cheap night out and go. Been coming here years both in person and for takeaway, and never disappoints. Recommended.
